1. 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.

    (Now there's a new firmware update for the Epic for a better latitude. Please check here: vimeo.com/39102891).

    The file is huge, about 22 GB, so it's divided in 31 parts.

    This review was done on my own time for the readers of my blog and the vimeo community. If you feel it has been of use to you feel free to use the new tipjar feature on vimeo! No obigation! All money received goes into making future reviews as they take so much time and resources...for a more detailed explanation please visit my page here: philipbloom.net/2012/09/28/tipjar/

    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.
