I have to disagree with Charles when it comes to AE being the "gold standard" for subpixel sampling. Apple Motion and by extension FCPX has excellent subpixel sampling that's at least as good as AE. So animating photos with a plugin in FCPX or natively in Motion would be just as good (and faster and easier) than doing it in AE. I'm working on a feature historical documentary right now that has tons of photos and being able to do high quality photo animations on the timeline that are rendered on the fly is a huge benefit to my productivity.
I will look forward to paying for the privilege of beta testing and reporting all the bugs this camera will have when it finally ships sometime in the next three years.
Oh look! A $30,000 security camera!
I gave someone a tip on there once. I wonder if I'm the only one?
How is this different than the Logger's Lunchbox? (besides form factor)
"Slating is really damn important, particularly when working with dual sound and massive amounts of footage." No it's not. I never slate, ever. Dual sound or no. Massive amounts of footage or not. Just make sure the internal clocks in your devices are synced and you are recording scratch audio on your camera and you're golden. Modern NLE's makes slating an arcane practice (FCPX FTW!). I produce hundreds of videos a year with both dual system sound, multi camera etc and never slate ever--never even think about it.
