The epic reminds me of the days when the Hvx200 first came out. DVCpro100, p2 media, variable frame rates, different resolutions, fit in my hand, did over crank Slow motion in camera, hell it even had a tape drive. It made sure I never had to say to a director, no I can't do that.
It was the Swiss army knife of video.
The epic is the swiss army knife of cinema. It's everything all at the same time, and unlike most systems, it's isn't jack of all trades master of none. It really is awesome at everything.
