    Samir, other than the obvious 5k, 6K !!

    I'm just a little confused with the simplifying of the new RED lineup.

    RED Dragon X DSMC2 5K

    RED Dragon DSMC2 6K

    Hehe. I was just making fun. Anyway so originally DSMC2 6K dragon was DSMC2 (but back then that denoted the body change from DSMC1 think old Epic-MX, Scarlet-MX and Epic Dragon-MX etc.) This was the first iteration of this body change. So it lacks some of the new features kicked off by Helium sensor and on cameras mainly in camera IPP2+33x33 Lut in camera things.

    So now this new Dragon-X 5K is in this new "unified DSMC2 body"- the DSMC2 now denotes sped up internals gives you those new things IPP2 in cam etc without the 6K dragon. A reason a few of us are salty. Great if you want to shoot 5K. Like I said still doesn't shoot 6K.

    FYI the DSMC2 Dragon 6k Magnesium doesn't have the same sensor block (sensor and protective glass) as other DSMC2 cameras like Helium have.

    So for example you can't mount the ABT Speedmount to a Magnesium Dragon camera, this would work with a Helium.

    Samir and Patrick, thanks for the feedback.

    Even though there have been these "developments" I think I'll stick with what I have...Thanks

    Samir,

    Just taken a look at the next firmware update (Version 7.1.0.1) and looks as though the IPP2 is addressed...so not that much different after all.

    "Changed IPP2 to be the default image pipeline (Output Tone Map: Low, Highlight Roll-off: Soft)"

    Cheers
