The goal of this test is to compare the latitude of these three cameras:
Red Epic, Sony PMW-F3 and Canon C300.
Red Epic recorded RAW on-board in Red Log 4K HD.
Sony PMW-F3 recorded in S-Log both in DPX on Gemini 4:4:4 10 bit and on-board.
Canon C300 recorded in Canon-Log both in DPX on Gemini 4:2:2 8 bit and on-board.
There are four tests:
1) Diffused light, from +3 stops to -5 stops.
2) Varying exposure in relation to indoor, outdoor and medium light.
3) Diffused light at 0 + spot light from 0 to +3 1/2 stops.
4) Sensors' quality test with charts.

Edit. I have just checked out the just announced micro four thirds version at IBC. Looks great but it's passive so no iris control through the camera. You need a manual lens like the Voigtlanders.
The good news is with a M43 mount you can put on any lens with easily available adaptors for PL, M, Nikon, Canon. C mount (make sure they cover sensor). It's a much more flexible camera lens wise and makes more sense than the EF version here.
