      I’ve dreamed of owning a Red Epic for a while now. Been putting it off for some time now. Any idea if any of these films are available to see on DVD/blu-ray so I can see them in action? I would love to see Dead Snow, mainly because the first was so much fun.

        I hear the Red Epic is flawless and just down right perfection. I wish I could afford one. All of these cameras are some of the best around, sadly, my budget is minimal, but hey, I don’t really make much quality videos right now.

      This just shows that there’s so many good cameras to film in. I don’t know if any of these movies are available on DVD or Blu-Ray, but I suspect many, if not all of them are going to look quite good. The cameras used in many of them are quite good. Some of these films sound quite interesting too.
