Just a few reasons to shoot RED
There are many many more.
HDRx is extremely important when using an Octocopter through varying degrees of exposure. It basically means that the sky won’t blow out when you tilt up to it. Most modern camera will just clip and all colour information will be gone, leaving just white pixels. However the Epic will be able to hold those highlights and keep that sky a lovely blue.
Being able to record in higher frame rates allows for a lovely smooth, flowing look to the footage.
