    I would love to have your de-bayer algorithm... it can create information that isn't there.

    Do you mean Scarlet looks better to your eyes in higher compression ratio when compared to Gemini? or do you mean images out of Scarlet looks better than images out of Gemini in general?

    higher compressions, I like the general look of the gemini way better than the scarlet, maybe just from shooting my ew for so long

    Steve, what are you seeing as workable compression ratios for the gemini? 5K gemini 6:1 is roughly comparable to 8k EW 10:1?
