The above video shows off some of the real world potential of Thunderbolt. With the combination of a RED Rocket card and a Sonnet PCIe expansion chassis, even a little MacBook Air can chew through 4K RED footage at full resolution.

Following Canon’s announcement of the new EOS C300 cinema camera, RED announced details that the long-awaited Scarlet will be getting a 5K sensor, but will only capture 4K motion up to 25fps. The price is $9750.
