Kevin Sutton: "5K" video is 5120x2700 pixels or 13.8Mp per frame. The Red's 12 RAW frames per second stills is pretty impressive. It also does 4K video at 30 fps in RAW.
The Canon SLR's (current generation) and the Canon video camera only capture MJPEG making editing more difficult.
As a video system, the RED is miles ahead and is in a completely different market space than the Canon's.
Canon has LOG format which seems similar to raw
draschan: red seems the better choice than the canon considering the price of the canon. canon pricing seems not competetive to me...
The Canon requires add-ons as well. I look forward to seeing what actual street price is. Checked B&H-- C300 not listed.
