ISO 409 000 4k video to a recorder and full HD using the whole sensor!

What a camera for theatre and live music!

I would like to see 4k take off, it makes prices on TVs drop, and that will usher in more content from the movie industry. Unfortunately i think Sony is going to drop the ball here for a couple reasons. For one, 12mp is going backwards for stills, as is evident by all the people who forked over extra for the A7r. Resolution is nice to have. The second thing is the price. It is obviously the newest thing from Sony, it's 4k, no way it will be cheaper than the A7/r, and that is not including the must have external recorder for 4k.

So pay more for a body with slower AF and less resolution for stills? Then pay even more to actually record 4k? All this when the GH4 is 4k capable out of the box at $1700, and the AX100 is $2k. I officially place my bet at the table, im gonna go with $3000 for body, and another $1000 for recorder. 4 grand total. I wonder how many consumers will buy that? Im with you Neil, i won't spend that kind of money but thankfully there are much cheaper options for 4k.
