Lost opportunity: they should have called it "Monomate"! As it is, "That Steady Thing" sounds like the title to a rom-com.
dpreview digested the news incorrectly on multiple fronts. For instance, the sensor size of the BMPCC is not smaller than the BMCC models. They are all, however, smaller than the BM4K.
Also, there is no software update for the BMPCC "available on the Web site." It's just shipping with the "update."
Here's the non-spam-driven User Group community already set up for news, discussion and sharing clips:
ryanshoots: Good news for those five folks with the Windows tablet.
On a more serious note. Real photo editing is going to take place on a dedicated computer with lots of processing power and large monitor.
The kind of editing done on tablets is already handled by a plethora of apps. (not sure about the Win tablet, it's got limited apps, so maybe not the plethora that are available for IOS or Android)
On the tablet, Adobe would be conspicuous by their absence. They are only going to bring a "me too" effort so they can tick the box and that is about it.
Some people who are extremely serious and detailed about photography also live part of their lives in mobility, needing simplified equipment on-the-run for modest outputs. Duh.
Windows RT paired with this new program is fantastic. If I want to share anything quickly while away from the desktop, this is ideal. And using Remote Desktop, truly the best in its class, I get my monster computer at home on a remote connection with a symmetrical screen -- looks identical to sitting in front of the workstation, minus the three-panel array.
Let's not forget that Kipon is on the way. Metabones will see some healthy price competition.
Kinematic Digit: How exciting! The Conurus partnership is working well with Metabones. I wonder how long before AF is possible. I know Conurus has always been indicated as a distinct possibility down the road that AF might be possible. If he can make Contax N lenses work on EOS, I have all the faith that Conurus will make AF work for NEX/EOS combination. I wonder if that side accessory port will allow for upgrading which might be for AF down the road?
