You should get a 1dX and a 15mm sigma fisheye from 1952 with butter rubbed all over the lens. Then you just have to tape the shutter button and voila you have basically the same thing. Who says canon doesn't have 4K under $10K?

After I get my 1dx/GoPro I really need a 11" 8K TV for my living room with a 600Hz refresh rate. TVs like that really tie the room together.

Depending on the type of motion being filmed (slower/less complex would be better), the 4K mode could potentially be time-stretched in post-production into perfectly usable footage. Same concept behind the HDR workflow in Magic Lantern.

What can you watch 4K video on? Seriously!!!! I'm not about to shell out $10000 for a tv to go with a $400 camera...

That said, I have a GoPro3 black on order and can't wait to play with it... but I just can't see myself going past 2K video.... my first planned filming when it comes will be to put it on a stunt kite and capture motion-sickness inspiring video ;)

Ok, so 15 FPS isn't ideal for standard video applications, but wouldn't this FPS setting allow for improved low light if they set it up right? All the other gopros had a slowest FPS of 30 as far as I know, and the one thing that has kept me from using them is their low light performance.

Technically, if there is a 15 FPS setting now, they should be using a 1/15 shutter speed, giving one stop more exposure from what they would have at 30 fps.

I guess the question is if they actually have the firmware set up that way or not.

24 isn't choppy, its the most normal looking to the eye.  60fps viewed on a screen with a high enough refresh rate looks more fluid like a home video... almost looks worse.  That's subjective though I guess.
Hollywood film makers are very good at concealing the limitations of 24 fps. I still think it is nonsesense to think of 24fps as any more "normal looking to the eye" than what poor AM radio is to the ear: it may be what we are used to, but it is a far cry from reality.

4K at 15 fps is pointless.
Played back at normal speed for normal scenes, I tend to agree.

Yea that's why they want to record/show films in 48fps like the hobbit.

4K on a 1080p display still looks better than 1080p on a 1080p display, it's not like you have to have a 4K monitor to see the difference.

As for the GoPro, I'm pretty sure they just threw it in there to make the specs look better.  But I'll take 2.7K all day.
