Papi61: It probably cost Canon $1k to make, so they have lots of room to deflate the price. Personally, I wouldn't buy it if they sold it for $2k. And it's not because I'm a Nikon shooter, but because the Samsung NX1 is so much better at 4k filming.
Except for lenses.. This is where the Samsung and Panasonic's GH4 fail.. (you have to use some of the cinema lenses compared to regular 35mm lens to understand fully ((and if you have the $$))
JamesD28: Did Sony give any details on the shutter speed/aperture/equiv. ISO which was used to make this photo?
On my Sony 1/2 CAM, base ISO is 360 at 0DB and ISO720 at 6DB
A 1/3 chip may have a base ISO of 250 at 0DB and 500 at 6DBMy estimate is ISO 1,024,000.. Yes, ISO 1M (maybe 500,000)
Here is my question. Can you make a image with it, that everything is in focus (within the range that is) Can you do macro with it? See where I am going here? For macro, this camera would be awesome.. No more macro focus rails..
I can think of some certain fields who would love this. (mostly house, and other types of inspectors..)
Does it have to be attached to work since its WIFI? I can so imagine one person holding the "camera part" and another person with the phone. I think if the price is right, this is a cool idea..
JordanAT: I certainly like the form factor (GoPro may be the dumbest looking action camera ever), but will it do high speed video? I'd really like 240fps or faster, even if it's at a reduced resolution (but still decent...720? 540?).
I like the box GoPro form factor. Esp on the head. But these Garmin, Sony, JVC, etc, have A LOT more features for the same price as a GoPro.
if the dust is building near any lubricated components, then it is the lubrication issues.. To much of it. Maybe, it will decrease over time.. As long as you keep cleaning it, great sensor.. But wet cleaning is a PAIN. that would drive me crazy, esp since it builds up over just a thousand shots. That would mean I would have to clean it in the middle of a event.
jkokich: Ugly box of mostly buttons.
Love it.. HATE menus.. I love my Ex1r, WHY, because it has BUTTONS
Musicjohn: I don't need nor want a square box with features. I want a true camera with a lens attached. Sony should upgrade their EX1-R / EX3 to fascilitate a 35mm cinema sensor, 1920 x 1080 pixels, with 4:2:2 color sampling at 50 MB/s datarate, It should also have SD card slots and 96GB of internal memory as well as HD/SDI output connector and a 20x optical high class zoom. But not these wanna-be movie camera's which aren't even really foto-camera's. What are they, actually... really? All I know is that I don't like them. They are not ergonomic to use, nor for transportations, nor for quick build-up / setup for newsgathering, Please Sony, give us a decent "reporter" cam !!! Same camera concept as NX-5 / EX1-R / EX3 but technically better than the current models. NX-5 / EX1R and EX3. And make the EX1-R have interchangeable lenses!
I can tell this site does not have a lot of hardcore videographers. they have had REPORTER cameras for years
jnk: Considered that D3/s is the camera body that went to outer space where failure rates are not acceptable at this level and you're complaining about a 'wet job'?
Get real about the build of Nikon - Navy Seals used the D700 for their night missions and that should spell out the sealing questions of these bodies.
As far the D3 going into space, you will laugh at the reason. NASA has a HUGE collection of Nikon lens.
