    Sorry I believe I forgot the answer on this question. But its just odd that we cant get just a few frames more in 7k than in 8k.

    You do. Assuming you are talking Epic-W here:

    8K FF Max FPS = 30.46
    7K FF Max FPS = 34.81

    Ah I missed those extra frames. But isn't there a gain in 7k if I upgrade from epic w?

    I sure miss the fog on 120 fps on epic. But I would not like to go down to 5k gemini (even thoe I think it would fit me well, I love how much 8k cleans up at down rested at 4k...and keying at 8k)
    Thanks Phil

    Ps: It should say for not fog...but it does not update..

    Yes, on Monstro and Helium these days you get:

    8K FF Max FPS = 60.55
    7K FF Max FPS = 68.93

    And yep, that more or less relates to the 2X horsepower increase there.

    4K 120 on Epic with Mysterium-X is about the same format size as 4.5K on Monstro, on Helium it's about 6K.

    Helium 6K FF/Mysterium-X 4K FF format comparison:

    Thanks, now I know there is actually some gains in 7k, even if they are really small. Perhaps you could score a lower compression.
    Red can you please implement Phil as Ai in the next generation cameras=)

    Needs facial hair :)

    Also, if I turn into a meme "it looks like you're trying to roll camera", I'm going fly back to my home planet. I've repaired the subsonic gravity wave emitter, batteries nearly charged :)
