Dude deserves a gold-dipped turd for his going away gift.

Isn't the Aptina sensor capable of better video output?
Was hoping for 1080P @ 60 / 720P @ 120 / 480P @ 240.
Higher FPS (400/1200) at reduced resolutions is hardly usable.

Robert Hoffman: Great, a $2800 camera that requires a stinky diaper shooting stance.

It's called "Zone Focusing", Clint.

Don't hate on him.

That being said, the footage felt desaturated and not very impressive. I expected the beach scenes to be prettier.

It also did have a feel of a 16mm film...which is what the active imaging area of the sensor most closely resembles.

So, that look may have been intentional.
Unfortunately, no 16mm lense will work without vignetting. If only they release a firmware update for a 16mm imaging area.

There was a lack of REAL lowlight tests as well.

The built-in battery means this will only be good for filmmakers and NOT videographers. The use of RAW is another clue that this is for filmmakers.

Lack of a hot-swappable battery is a death-knell to anyone doing more than a 2 hour event. And do you want to risk being a few minutes off on battery life when those minutes could be nuptial vows? Very dissapointing. Hope there will be a remedy.

I'm hoping a firmware update will allow for the use of C-mount lenses, if possible. It looks like the mount is already dedicated at this point. There's a lot of good C-mount glass still out there!
Bolex Killer...?
