The rolling shutter is overblown. COmpared to a D300s, the K-01 is a much better video machine.

It is not rolling shutter as much as the IR (digital I believe) creates shifting in an attempt to stabilize the image. For handheld filming, it works well, but using a lens above 85mm, it has some shudder in the image.

Turn off IR, and there is no reall rolling shutter, but you see every shake. Perfect for tripod-monopod shooting.

Its a great camera, and with stereo mic, sounds great. Much better than the Kx.
