    I am understanding that this camera will blow away 35mm in term of overall look?

    Why?

    And why doesn't every major studio use this?
    5d mark ii, 503 w/ 351 sticks, Nikon 24mm 2.8, 50mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8, 135mm 2.8, Mac Pro Nehalem 2.26 8-core, halo rig mini

    Oh dear.

    Film still has a number of advantages, not the least of which is a lot more latitude and a better established work flow. The change over to digital is going to be a very, very slow process.

    Is this a translation issue? Film has a better established workflow. Meaning there is a huge industry worldwide that knows how to get film from the camera to the big screen. The RED is not there yet and won't be for a long time. Does that help?

    It doesn't exist. Wait until it comes out to judge its picture quality.

    Film has at least one clear advantage: It exists. Epic doesn't.

    Any way, Red is no longer the new girlfriend. The Purple is the one we're all waiting for. It's totally cool and will change everything. It's a revolution.

    yes epic does not exist yet but I have to admit 2010 will be red or epic I guess. One of themajor reasons that studios don't use the existing 1080p expensive cams has a lot to do with availability. They need atleast 3 on the set. So if they sell over 1000 epics there will be a lot of movies shot with it. Red is great but it isn't what the epic will be. Every year more movies are shot digitally. The dam. Ex3 uncompressed is good enough to shoot most movies but with studios it is really about guarantees. Don't experiment or try anything new on a big budget movie.

    If Epic exists, where can I buy one . Also, the workflow is not a long waays alway as Perrone suggested. In fact, it has improved significantly since its inception and Red One's are becoming a lot more common in productions, which will help in the evolution of the workflow. Even Scorcese is using them in his new doc.

    Somehow I don't think this is anywhere close to the top of the list as to why film is still king on studio features.
