Is this whole article trolling us? Sensor is (barely) S35, not full frame.
Just because they released a 4K then 6K, that does not mean they will release an 8K pocket camera in 6 months. Besides, that would be an argument to hold off on buying it: either wait to buy an updated version, or buy when the price drops.
There's no reason to consider buying this camera without discussing production and post production workflow. There are a ton of issues shooting 6K raw. It's a camera optimized for few actual people.
Komodo + Kimono = KOMONO? :-)
Obviously a rental, unless a production house is making 360/VR stuff full time. I run a big YouTube channel. We're going to experiment with a couple of 360 videos just for the novelty of it. Many of our viewers watch on the YouTube mobile app; 360 support is built-in, so there's nothing special to do on the viewer's end. That's a lot better for us than VR.
Just read the books. It's plainly explained about what's happening.
I noticed. That whole sequence with Arya at the end was conspicuously filmic, as if Terrence Malick guest directed those 5 minutes. I didn't mind it, but it did call attention to itself a bit.
8K time lapse? That's just a bunch of still frames shot at 35MP strung together. I mean it's beautiful, but literally any camera that shoots 35MP can do that. And of course, for video, 4K is probably adequate anyway.
