A top of the line 5k screen so small that even when you lean across the desk over the keyboard and squint you can't take advantage of the additional resolution.
It's 2017; it's ridiculous to charge 2000 for an hd cam with poor low light (therefore problematic for event videography, low budget indies, and documentaries). Even if you just need something to put in the back of the room and record, there are so many better options--and 4k allows you to punch in on someone's face if you really are just letting stationary cams go it alone. And it's sad that I've had a 4k video camera in my smartphone for four years now and they're still trying to peddle this junk.
As someone who's done his share of DP work, I've never been comfortable with the term. "Cinematographer" is a more noble and prestigious credit--and it
discourages that small but unfortunate minority of DPs who see themselves as co-director, the senior partner to the "actor's director."
As the sensor size appears to be 11,608 by 8,708, then the stills mode resolves at 11.6k--more if you cheat(ish) and slap on an anamorphic lens (that probably doesn't even exist). Not to be greedy--and knowing this is more of an academic exercise--but if a digital friendly version of Christopher Nolan wanted to shoot a true Imax killer (70mm Imax, not LieMax) by shooting with a 10-12k resolution medium format camera, what would be the engineering hurdles from the processing end be like?
In other words, I wonder how much computing/storage power and speed would be needed to truly Imax a sensor of this resolution into being a workable 24p 11k immersive image camera for blockbuster movies and 180 degree projection theme park rides like Soarin' Over California... Anyone technologically minded care to theorize in this thought experiment?
What I miss about the great camcorders of old was they were all-in-one work horses that let you shoot without a million bulky add-ons or without a huge support crew. So while this looks like a fine camera, it has no touch focus, no PDAF, and no five axis stabilization (only "electronic"), that's not a good enough one man band camera for 8000 dollars in 2017.
