Since when does full frame plus a little extra qualify as "large format"? This doesnt even measure up to what's currently called medium format, which in turn is scaled down radically from traditional medium format.
Most people who need a (relatively) compact, one-man-band capable video camera (complete with flip out screen) are often going to be in situation where they can't bring along a lighting crew plus lighting gear, which means they need to rely on available light even more--so why make it a Super 35 when a full frame would take in so much more light?
Finally! A way to make 8k blurry and unwatchable by stretching it way beyond its intended limits. Great job, infomercial!
I'm excited for all these new f1.2, T1, f.9, and under lenses but movie "pros" need to get over their prejudice against AF and start demanding it on these low light lenses because even the best focus pullers in the world aren't going to be able to keep tack sharp focus on their subjects in all but the least demanding camera moves.
Sony has pulled a Canon: kneecapping a potentially great camera. A 7000 hybrid in 2021 and no flip screen? No thankyou.
That's great but for so much of the appeal of a small-body camera is how nimble it is--and how one can discreetly film in public--and these two key advantages are pretty much undone as soon as you connect top-heavy and cumbersome external recorder-monitor combo. For a lot of situations, those of us on a micro-budget don't want/can't use an external monitor--we just need the external recorder itself--as small as it can possibly be. Atomos used to sell one years ago and I'd buy a new version again in a second.
