Oh that would be amazing. Canon C300 and Panasonic AF100, get lost!

All I care about is...this camera means yet more love for the E-mount.

All hail the E-mount!

It's very bad if you have to MANUAL zoom with a camcorder ... JVC has motorized zoom, 10x.

4K for consumers? Probably not for some years to come. Basic HD (1920x1080) is still trying to gain a significant foothold. In fact, there is precious little full HD available yet.

When full HD (1920x1080) drops to true consumer price levels, then the top end of the market will be open to 4K, for those willing to spend the big bucks to buy into that format.

Personally, I wouldn't get too excited about it. Not yet, anyway.

It is simply the latest fad, in a fad ridden business. Remember 3D?

That camera will be for professional cinema and broadcast use. Except for television broadcast cameras, motorized zooms are seldom used. Remember this is NOT a consumer camera and the $9000 price tag is for the body only. If you really want to buy this camera with a motorized zoom, you can. All you have to do is pony up the $9000 for the body, plus thousands more for your motorized zoom, and, oh yes, the external storage device to capture your SDI output.

Never mind the rails, mattebox, follow focus or other accessories.

I wonder how the quality will compare with the RED cameras...

No way. Full HD won't be any where near 'dead' until anytime before 2020. DVD's are still popular today.

What is that lens?
In reply to Promit, Mar 31, 2012

Does anyone know what lens is mounted to the camera in the picture?
I want it
Hopefully the addition of this new pro cine-cam means more lenses for NEX

Better than 320x240

Remember EGA time with 640x480 and gigantic 16 colors!
