I am convinced it will be a great tool for wildlife. I'll be shooting Redcode RAW 4k as often as I can, and the high-speed shots at 2k/100fps (if/when enabled, there are threads about it).
Why 4k? For my archive, because as I'm not specialized, my topics will constantly change (except: mountains) for TV-productions, but there are always smaller projects for institutional purposes (info-points etc.) in between, that are made for big screens. Offering 4k makes me more competitive. And my archive will outdate more slowly.
Regarding slow-motion I count very much on the development of appropriate software for NLE-plugins and on further developments by RED.
BTW, will some of you nat-hist-people show up @IBC? I plan to be there on Friday 7th. Would be nice to have a coffee or beer with you!
