Will 4k camcorders replace DSLR's for sport shots?
2

Sony will release a new 4K camcorder this year and it will be priced just under $2000. It is supposed to have good low light capabilities and a 13x zoom. If the object is not to produce a big enlargements, could this be used for high school football, among other things,  to produce action shots? I would think the high frame rate would give you a much better chance of getting that special moment compared to the slow 9-12 fps available with a DSLR.
