    Maybe one day Atomos will take the hint about doing a 4K Ninja Star.
    Of course with the fp being able to record to an external SSD itself you would imagine it might be unecessary to use a full on external system anyway but I'm guessing this might be the only way to currently deal with RED's patent.

    If the image quality DR and AF is good it seems like a cool camera for the price. Wish it had CFexpress  instead of CFast

    After firmware 2.0 I see less reasons to do so. Would love some more less cropped high frame rate options.
    Overall 2.0 is quite impressive for V-Log.

    Magenta tint seems gone
    Orange/yellow lights won't burst into noise anymore
    Sharpening seems to be turned off
    Noise reduction -1 fixes the motion related issues, also much nicer grain pattern which matches the framerate (temporal NR seems to be gone entirely)

    The nice thing about redcode is all the different compression rates you can choose. That said I am sure Prores is easier on most CPUs. Plus shooting in HD or anything other than full res crops the sensor.

    Ah ok right.  I had heard Alexa’s was a log raw and also the Ursa.  So I guess it’s Pockets, Canons, lower end Sonys, and ProRes RAW that are 12-bit linear.  I was surprised to hear the FX9 will shoot 16-bit, but I guess you need that bulky add-on module?
    But the Komodo won’t do internal ProRes will it?  So it’s raw or nothing I guess.  I kind of like how the Pockets will let you shoot ProRes and bake in a LUT if you want avoid grading.

    The RED helium does seem to be on par with the Alexa from tests I've seen. Like it has been said more in the shadows less in the highlights. 
    I've been unclear on this. The RED raw is 16 bit linear. While the Alexa is taking the 16 bit color information and mapping it into 12 bit 444 log or Arri Raw Log. When you open it up in resolve it maps it as 16 bit linear. From what I understand 12 bit log is equal to 16 bit linear. 

    The Blackmagic URSA or actually all of the BM cameras with a Fairchild sensor do the same thing(other than the Pocket 4k/6k which have a sony sensor).

    One user tested via the same method that Cinema5D does, and gave the Monstro a score of 13.4. Interestingly enough the Alexa got a similar result, but as we all know its the quality of the pixels that matter. Anyway, Monstro at 13.4...Komodo at what...13?  S1H has a result of 12.7 so this will be interesting. I am assure red will be able to squeeze out more due to Redcode and their patents.

    This dynamic range chart seems curious.
    Usually the industry standard Xyla charts are available in 15, 21 and 26 steps. But this one seems to be somewhere in between 15 and 21 steps. Maybe RED invented their own chart?

    Yeah, I was thinking about this.  Part of me thinks that even if they internally recognize the opportunity of marketing this camera to a new segment of the market, they’d never pitch it as a more affordable, lower tier option because they don’t want to erode their high end brand image.  Marketing it solely as a crash-cam/drone camera for high end work makes sense in that way.  On the other hand they were also known as disruptors in the past so I could see where they could also market the camera as such.

    Yeah, I’ve been wondering about this partnership as well.  My first guess was Canon wanted to have compressed raw, but then again if that’s true they aren’t implementing a very high compression ratio that would make sense in a prosumer camera.
    As far as competition on the camera body front goes, I had heard once that companies made most of their money on their lenses and wondered if that’s what they are most interested in selling.  Any truth to that?  Maybe they see the Komodo as a way to sell more RF lenses and better establish it.

    I think there are a few caveats with this test.
    First, it's using a pre-production camera.
    Second, it's using XF-AVC. The author argues that with a log curve like CLog2, there won't be any difference between that and raw. Personally, I suspect it's a bit more complicated than that, and depends significantly on the implementation. I've heard for example that the Alexa ekes out a tiny bit more DR with arriraw than with Prores. 
    Third, and related to the first and second point, Clog2 is only rated for 15-stops DR. Whilst under the above measurement the C300 Mk III only has 12.8 stops, it technically is rated by Canon at 16-stops. This matters because presumably some work has to happen on Canon's side to figure out how to distribute its DR within the Clog2 gamma. 
    In the comments, the author writes the following: 
    Given that it's a pre-production camera, there could well be some tweaking that needs to be done on this front.
    Fourth, it says nothing of the actual roll-off. This is ultimately the crucial question. Canon said that the DGO would allow for higher saturation in highlights, which is crucial to that smooth roll-off; what happens at present is that different colour channels clip at different rates and thus you end up with colour posterisation in the highlights. Roll-off always looks so much better in black-and-white for this reason.
    This test might prove to be accurate with the production model, but I think we should treat it with caution.

    And Canon battery usage as well.
    I notice that Canon released C300 III with an EF mount not a RF .
    They would obviously see the Komodo's chance in market before they abandon the popular EF mount.

    I think this might come.  Yesterday on a Lumix live stream they seemed to make it a point to say that Panasonic had enabled raw output over HDMI, but that it didn’t necessarily have to be ProRes RAW.  So if we look at the EVA-1 getting BRAW recently then it stands to reason this could come next.  Just a guess.
    I believe it’s supported in the current beta version of Premeire (at least for Windows).  And I think Avid had announced support.  So really that only leaves Vegas and Davinci which I imagine will be the very last to get it.  I feel like eventually they might have to give in and support it if enough cameras are using it.

    The 14 stops that C5D measured on the Alexa was at 2k resolution, and presumably the C300 III number of 12.8 would be closer to ~13.5 if downscaled to 2k. So it seems very close in terms of SNR.

    Yeah, just read that!  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed.  Not that I’m gonna pick up a C300 MK III.. but I’d just like to think after 10 years someone else can match an ARRI for DR ha ha.  I guess at this point everybody is pretty close though.
    So I guess ARRI’s implementation in the ALEV III is very special.. not to say they are the same approach since they don’t have the split, dual-pixel design.  But I thought surely that using two separate exposures would yield even greater DR.  Puzzling...
    good to know.  yeah I can see where it would be a special use feature that I might not even want all the time.
