I don't want to say I told you so, but... I told you so. Specifically, I've been saying that shooting video on SLR cameras simply doesn't make sense -- in some cases.

RED has their Epic camera. Alli has their Alexa camera. And now Canon has the C300, a digital video camera that's soley intended for professional film production, promising accurate colour reproduction and awesome low and natural light performance.
