Discovery CH commercial with the new Red Epic camera- shooting @ 300 FPS

the camera handled 300fps very well and captured fantastic images of the glass shattering in slo-motion

I was very impressed with the Red, fast reboot, touch screen controls, removable wireless RCU, pretty slick camera!

tricky lighting conditions, enough lumens for 300fps @ 45 degree shutter but not so much light that is washed the transparent image printed on the glass panes.
