OK... there is a ton of excitement here at RED over the Dragon sensor. The tests are in and it exceeds everyone's expectations.
So you own an EPIC? You get to upgrade to the single most significant sensor in the history of image capture for $6K. You don't have to buy a new camera. This is RED at it's best.
Come the end of the year... there will be a new dynamic range King. It just so happens that there is a new resolution King at the same time. And frame rates don't suffer.
Is this really big news? YES.
