The RED EPIC Mysterium-X can deliver 5K video at up to 120 fps, with up to 18 stops of dynamic range. The RED SCARLET DRAGON can shoot 5K at up to 60 fps and 4K up to 75 fps. The RED SCARLET-X can shoot 5K at 12 fps and 4K at 30 fps. Mounts are available for Canon, Nikon, Leica M, cinema-standard PL and many other lenses (retaining autofocus and image stabilization with lenses that provide it). RED's own REDCODE RAW format provides great versatility. Accessories include viewfinders, monitors, power supplies, recorders, handle and more.
The Sony SLT-A99 can shoot 1920x1080 AVCHD video at 60p/28 Mbps, 50p/28 Mbps, 60i/24 Mbps, 60i/17 Mbps, 50i/24 Mbps, 25p/24 Mbps, and 24p/24 and 17 Mbps, plus 1440x1080 MP4 video at 30 fps/12 Mbps. It can record uncompressed 4:2:2 video to an external recording device via HDMI. You can use the eye-level EVF or the tilting/rotating external LCD monitor for composing and focusing. Full-time continuous phase-detection AF is available, when desired. There's a built-in stereo mic and a headphone jack, and you can add the optional XLR adapter for pro-level stereo sound. The A99 can use all A-mount Sony and legacy Konica Minolta lenses, automatically cropping to APS-C format when a DT (APS-C) lens is used. Current full-frame lenses range from a 16-35mm superwide zoom through a 500mm, including macro optics.
