Neodp: The retro look (nice concept) is lacking a certain beauty, in this rendition; to my eye.
Mainly, on the one hand, it's OK to make a non-video version. Where's the video version?
On the other hand, it's a stark lack; of doing what a camera maker needs to do. Innovate. Video is a given, and if DSLR designs do not solve video issues, and learn a better way to do it, without hindering stills (I understand this is technically challenging); then we are dealing with a subordinate company. One that's going the wrong way.
MAKE A BETTER CAMERA!
Really? How many DSLR's you know that come without video?(not the old models)
marike6: By some of the comments about below like the "many consider the GH2 better" I get the impression some are not really sure what the Black Magic Cameras are capable of. So here a quick look at a travel type video:
What a great video! Do you use a tripod or some kind of support for the stability? There is almost no shake. And of course, the resolution (but that's on the camera). Anyway, very nice. Wish I could do such things.
does it have HDR?
I went through the specs. It doesn't seem to have HDR capabilities, right?
Timmie: "Major layoffs" <---> 5 people
They have 6 people in the "company", and one of them is director of communications. They have then a CEO, a CFO, a HR Person, someone answering the phones, so there's like 1 or 2 programmers left to do any real work....
