Guys we're arguing semantics here. My point was that Red is not doing anything that far superior with their hardware that Canon couldn't easily match or even best. Where Red does better over Canon is on the software side with a RAW capture workflow. All Canon would need to do to is implement a similar workflow and include some sort of connection that could move that heavy data stream directly from the sensor to a media device that could handle it like my exampled Thunderbolt SSD. The problem I have with Red is that they market their sensors with hyped up names like "Mysterium" to make them sound far bigger and better than what they actually are. It's an APS-H similar sized sensor, plain and simple. Nothing magical about it. Canon has been making them for years.
