Here are some more notes from RED’s founder Jim Jannard….

1. 6K (new Dragon sensor) is 2.2x 4K in number of pixels.
2. 6K has 45% more pixels than 5K.
3. 6K has over 10x the number of pixels than 1080P.
4. 6k (6144 x 3160) has more resolution than a Canon 5D MK III.
5. Pixels are good. Down-rezzing is good. Dynamic range is good.
6. The cleaner the sensor the more you can compress in REDCODE RAW. Dragon has less than half the noise of Mysterium-X.
7. Obsolescence Obsolete is good.
