I thought this would be best place to post this, since it is specific to Wildlife and RED cameras.
If you have and used both the RED ONE and the Epic for wildlife work, what is you experience/feedback of using both cameras
Below is mine on key factors that I worked out having shot both.
RED ONE : Negatives, Weight,Weight,Weight, Less Dynamic Range. Positives : Long Recording time(cost savings),4.5K 16X9, 120Frames at 2K, PRE RECORD,
Epic : Negatives Media(Expensive,difficult to backup and shoot at the same time in the field) Laptop+other stuff balances out the weight, No PRE RECORD, Positives: Excellent Dynamic range great for low light work, 5K 96Frames, 300Frames at 2K, Weight, Auto Focus extremely useful while tracking and filming.
Please add comment.

I'm going to be shooting for a nature/sustainable living documentary over the next year in Humboldt county, CA. I'll be available on a limited basis for other projects and have an Epic package to rent out (with RPZ 18-85 and Canon 150-600/5.6L) in case anyone needs footage from the land of giant redwoods, roaming elk and pristine pacific coastline.
Would like to be added to the list. Great Idea BTW.
