  1. #1 Differences between Scarlet-W & Gemini? 
    I'm in the market to either get a Scarlet-w or gemini. It's to my understanding that a Gemini is basically a scarlet-w with the added super great low light capabilities. The only other thing I see is that Gemini can do 75 and 96 fps at 5k where in the scarlet-w you have to drop down to 4k for those rates. All the other frame rates and resolutions appear the same.

    Are there any other major functionality differences between the two that I am missing?

    Different sensor size / pixel pitch and tech.

    They are completely different. Yes they both 5K, but there are many differences.

    1) The Gemini sensor is much larger.
    2) Gemini has more DR
    3) Gemini can do full anamorphic
    4) Gemini has dual ISO
    5) Gemini can shoot 96fps at 5K and can also shoot at lower compression.

    We've been playing with some Gemini footage this week, and it's *amazing*.

    Blows Scarlet-W out of the water.

    Don't forget in camera IPP2 and 33x33x33 LUT support.

    The Gemini is a "Weapon", remember that.

    They are 2 different cameras wrapped in the same form factor. Gemini is part of the top of the line RED lineup. The Scarlet is more of an entry level, but still excellent. The Dragon sensor on the SW is 2 generations of sensor older than the Gemini, plus all the other differences that were pointed out above. If you can afford the Gemini, go for it
