The Op title makes no sense, Sony announced a 4k consumer camcorder a while ago.

And to the person that mentioned the 4k in the gopro its only a gimmick as it does only 15 frames per second at 4k, try watching footage at 15p and prepare for a headque.

Yes there is some EXPENSIVE 4k-acapable cameras out there.  But now we are talking about bringing affordable 4k-acapable cameras to the masses. The price is the key here, and that's where it makes sence.

But you are right about GOPRO, it's 4k video is limited to 15 fps, and that's just a gimmick. Besides it has a big limitations when it comes to changing optic/lenses. A 4K-capable Sony or Panasonic can use many different lenses.
