VIDEOX_TEST

Neutral Prolost (Sharpness 0, Contrast -4, Saturation -2) first
Video Camera X (Sharpness 0, Contrast -4, Saturation -2) second

Shot on 60D and 50mm 1.4. Mostly 100 ISO (1 or 2 clips might be 400 ISO, can't remember), various apertures. No filters, these are H.264 files straight from the card to final cut pro x. No correction or grading.

I tried shooting high contrast situations. The video X profile is less "contrasty" than neutral Prolost. This is by no means a log profile but it seems to retain a little more highlight and shadow detail.

Seems like a sensible move, anyone tried it yet?

Just downloaded and installed it on my 60D. Knocked the settings down ala ProLost settings (Sharpness 0, Contrast -4, Saturation -2, Color tone 0). Did a quick, non thorough test in my bedroom (low-light) with my 28 ƒ1.8 @ 1.8 ISO 640. There's even less contrast compared to Neutral ProLost profile and I can definitely see a little more detail in the shadows. I'll shoot daytime tomorrow and see what I can see. I'm interested about skin tones.

Isn't there somewhere on the 'net that isn't pimping the over-hyped Black Magic :(

By "pimping" do you mean letting people know of their announcement? These "over-hyped" blackmagic camera's are unbelievable for their price point! There is a reason everyone on the internet is talking about these. A camera the size of an iphone 5 that can shoot 1080p in ProRes 422 and compressed RAW with 13 stops of DR on SD cards was UNHEARD OF until now. Tell me, what do you think is 'over-hyped' about these cameras? Judging by the images coming out of the first generation Blackmagic Cinema Camera (in the right hands, of course, like any camera) I, like many people, can not WAIT to get my hands on these cameras. If it's 'over-hyped' for you then don't buy it! Simple as that.
