I'll sell my kidney and other non vital body parts to get a 4K camera that can film at least at 120fps.

Considering the ergonomics of a DSLR, you shouldn't be shooting handheld at all.Really? You can shoot just fine handheld depending on what lens you're using. 200mm? Hell no. Wide angle? Sure.
I shoot handheld with a 17-55 2.8 IS all the time. Granted, that's also with a Zacuto Z-finder but the footage is just fine.I’ve been using the EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS for documentaries ...I always advise people using DSLR for video to avoid the lenses that don't have a fixed aperture wide open. When you cross the zoom point where that aperture's max goes from 3.5 to 5.6 the lens will blink, or flash. This happens even if you're not wide open, but say at f8.
If that lens is all you got, then it'll have to do. Just beware of zooming while recording.
Now if only the iPhone5 will incorporate this....
Now the question is will they make an EF mount adapter like they did for the iPhone? Nokia phone + 24-70 f/2.8L II = WIN! lol
Japanese national broadcaster NHK has said it is developing a sensor capable of shooting 8k video at 120fps. It will be able to support the company's Super Hi-Vision standard of 7680x4320 pixels (generically known as UHDTV) which, at 33MP, is 16x higher resolution than current 1080 HD technology. The high-speed chip is being developed with Shizuoka University and was reported at the IEEE Internation Solid-State Circuit Conference currently taking place in San Francisco. (via The Verge)
UHDTV is expected to arrive in homes some time around 2020 (the first screens have been demoed) and a 60fps version will be used to show high-quality footage from the 2012 Olympics on a series of large screens around the UK.
It easily fits my needs for photography, but I use my DSLR for video as well and I want something more than the standard 1080p @ 30/24 and 720p @ 60 fps. It's not exactly in my budget to buy a Phantom Flex or a RED One so getting that 120 fps isn't very easy for me haha.
+1! Look, when I get this camera it will be a step up from my 7D and for Photos, I like the 7D. So as far as "photography needs"? Well, having this camera? I think I will feel as if I've arrived
But the video (H.264) is a nightmare to work with in a world of fast turnaround. Jello effect, digital artifacts and the dreaded moire! These can be minimized and "fixed" in post but, who has the time?
Some of us, and I believe many more to come, are looking to this for more run and gun applications: TV Magazine style. Documentary. And if you all looked close, a lot of the footage shot at the Occupy events was shot on DSLRs and the footage looked great, much better then the NEWS cameras out there (on their 1/2", or well, 2/3" chip if they are lucky)... this brings me to audio, don't get me started on audio... and no a digital recorder will not do, too much time syncing audio and too dam many connections and switches to miss, I run two wireless lavs and a camera mic, and only two channels, ok two channels I can deal with. I'm hanging enough stuff on my camera rig as it is: wireless receiver, BeachTek, Camera light, follow focus, EVF......... In the News TV Magazine world video and audio should live together. I'm just saying'
So I understand if some of the purely Photography "photogs" out there are thinking "Dude its a still camera!!! leave it alone you video jockey!" I know, I know, its just that they put sutcha' nice big sensor in that box and the things you can do with the lenses.... come on you know its addictive and its just that I want more.
