Tonkotsu Ramen: Is it a bit strange that you guys are up to date on storage, phone, and sexism, but completely ignore sony and canons video camera releases?

Actually, I just got back from a couple of days of R&R. Flaming? Are you serious?

Interesting camcorders. But one has to ask, how many amateurs, or advanced amateurs, use dedicated camcorders these days? I know I don't. I stopped when mirrorless cameras appeared. Larger sensors, interchangeable lenses, and they also shoot excellent stills. The GH5 is only slightly more than the entry level camcorder.

For Pro use, I understand.

Do people still buy fixed lens camcorders? I stopped when mirrorless cameras arrived on the scene.

PhotoUniverse: It suits the owners of the new Nikon D850

RAW file sizes have nothing on video file sizes, especially 4K. With the upcoming GH5 firmware update, you will be able to record 4K at 400 Mbps. Now THAT will consume storage space FAST.

photogeek: And to think that 5 years from now this will be available in a sub-$300 SSD.

You wish. LOL

Personally, I am waiting for a breakthrough in holographic crystal storage.

GreatOceanSoftware: Please stop making spinning hard drives. Just stop.

Are you suggesting we should all switch to SSD for ALL our storage needs, and at a significant cost increase per terabyte?

I will stick with spinning hard disks for my long term data storage until something better, and more cost effective comes along.

GodSpeaks: Great specs, horrible price.

@Kaso: Why? I am not dissing it, just saying that it is pricey.

tabloid: A tiny one inch sensor might suit some people, but if you have to do a lot of cropping, like I have to very often....I wouldn't bother.
Ok it does 4K , but the general formula of the camera doesn't make sense.
Bit pricey as well.
If it had a APS size sensor for the same price , then in my opinion it would definitely be a camera to look at.

You do realize, that with a 24-600mm lens, there should be very little reason to crop.

GarysInSoCal: Are you KIDDING ME?... A punk-azs 1 inch sensor?... OMG... this tinker toy is gonna be ear-bustingly noisier than front row seats at a Slip-Knot concert. Load up your most agressive noise reduction application and get ready to connect the dots... :D

Have you actually used any 1" sensored cameras?

Sergey Borachev: This is the camera for me when I give up on M43 and on MiLCs. With the continuing increase in size, weight and price of those products with sufficient quality, and Sony's 1-inch sensor catching up to the 16MP sensors in IQ and AF capability, it makes sense to spend the money to buy this and forget any more purchases.

This is BIGGER than pretty much ALL MFT cameras, yet with a smaller sensor.

Rob890: when did programs become apps?

When Apple said it was so. Reality is, that "apps" are really just dumbed down programs.

Just one more reason why you should NEVER trust anything to "The Cloud".

Yawn. I remember RED's original Scarlet roll out. Pre-orders taken, delivery in 6 months, etc. But there was never any delivery and the original Scarlet morphed into something completely different, and much more expensive, than originally marketed.

So now I ignore RED and their per-announcements. I will wait for a shipping product, with actual pricing, as well as specs.

RolliPoli: I'd argue that the A900 from 2008 and the A850 a year later were Sony's 'first' true, high end cameras and still a benchmark for the company.

Agree. I still have my A850.

I was never really interested in APS sensored cameras. When my trusty Kodak SLR/n was showing signs of impending failure in 2010, I started looking for a replacement. At the time all Nikon had was an aging D700, with no replacement in sight. I ended up buying a Sony A850 as a stop gap measure. The A850 was a fabulous camera designed for photographers. Very few bells and whistles. It was a good solid photographic instrument. I shot with the A850 until Nikon introduced the D800/E. I still have my A850 and use it as a backup.

At least three problems immediately come to mind:
1: It's wireless. I absolutely do NOT want a wireless keyboard.
2: It uses builtin rechargeable batteries. What do you do when the battery fails, as it will?
3: Price.

panther fan: No 4k internal? How waterproof is this camera with a giant atomos ninja attached?
Knowing Sony I'm sure they will bring out a 4k Version in the future, otherwise they wouldn't build such a large ecosystem for the camera. But otherwise a great cam. Sony RX0 II i will buy you ;)

Since it will only record for 5 minutes external 4K, attaching an Atomos Ninja is kind of pointless, even above water.

TW14: I would like to see if this is good for underwater photography. f4 lens seems very slow to be useful in this area. Does it come with IBIS too?

It's just the equivalence brigade trying to show how superior FF is to everything else. Ignore them.

In reply to:

onemoreguy: I wonder why no 4k. Don't all Sony 1 inch cameras now include 4k?

Apparently external 4K recording has a 5 minute recording limit.
