Better is worse somehow??

Better is better in my book. I would say Canon can do that if it were marketable at a profit to the mass market. These RED cameras are a niche specialty camera and they have to be special for their professional users. I am sure there is a massive price tag that goes along with it.

I wondered what sort of cameras say the guys in Survivor use where they show video of the night sky and it looks like what you get with your DSLRs in 30 second exposures yet its a video - one sensitive sensor there!
