MOZA mini integrates Gudsen latest and advanced 3-axis stabilizing technology, lightweight, stable and aerial friendly. Two versions will be available, one for Sony ‪Cam‬ and one for ‪‎Gopro‬. Feel free to speak out your thoughts!

Panasonic has their own version of this, where the lens and sensor assembly is separate from the recording unit.

4K will become the new standard and that will be a good thing, but create a new era? What does that even mean? Will it mean a different sort of movie will be made? Will it mean that different people will be making movies? Did the introduction of colour, a far greater change, drastically change the sort of movie made? It is the creativity of the film maker that makes the films, not the tools, no matter how good they are.

I had all of those same concerns when I shot my first event in 4k with a bitrate of about 600MB/sec. Honestly the processing power and space required was not a hickup. If you have a small gaming rig at least you'll be fine (as long as you're not doing REDCODE 1:1) and a few externals. I would shoot 4k any day... it just depends on what I'm shooting...

All the evidence points to 4k being a passing fad, it main purpose is to market to gullible consumers. Now if you want and use 4k you have the freedom to do so and no one esp me wishes to restrict your use of 4k, but saying it is a new standard when the truth is far from that is what we are discussing.
We live in a 720 world, not yet even 1080. If you think you are watching 1080 on netflix or other source, it is most likely you are watching media that is sourced as 1080 video, but seldom anywhere in the USA are you getting it delivered in 1080, by far the majority get in 720 and the public has no demand for HD greater. It also saves netflix etc saves money. The main purpose of 4k is to get you to sell your perfectly good TVs and cameras to replace them with 4k and now they are talking 8k and beyond.
World wide digital projection has replaced film, the standard for digital projection is 2k. Do you think theaters who just bought expensive projectors in 2k will replace them? Then again no public demand in theaters for 4k plus the obvious problems in that the majority of the viewing public will not benefit from 4k in seating position.
This 4k marketing scam is EXACTLY the same tactics with the not too distant past megapixel wars. There is no secret to the downsides of 4k, but if you want to use it, use it, but to claim it is a new standard given that we are not even in a 1080 world is naive.
