Does this really have an INTERNAL CFast card?  Can this not be swapped out and changed in the field?

For simple video work, this is a godsend.

According to the YouTube video posted above it seems to have an internal CFast card and a CFast card slot (for your own cards) as well as a SD card slot. At least that is what they seemed to say.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

So its a 1" sensor does that make it a Sony sensor like the G7 X? Whilst 1" is larger than Super 16 I guess it could be viewed similarly in comparison to 16x9 Canon C300 / C500 or the Sony FS7, F5, F55, F65 or a 16x9 Black Magic camera etc.

I can see this being used as a "crash" camera at its price-point particularly as it has wireless control rather than GoPros or BM Pocket Cameras.

This thing looks great for someone who is looking to get into 4k for personal use/archiving. Anxious to see how it stacks up against the current kids on the block.

It looks to be useful as a compliment or as a stand alone for some situations.

The lens performance will be the kicker...

I can see how the ability to extract a good sized still photograph out of video could be very handy.
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

It was amazingly helpful on a project I worked on that was shot on a RED.

By "Internal" they just mean "not an external recorder" - so self-contained but removable storage.  It is a removable CFast 2.0 card - mind you those are eye-wateringly expensive at the moment.

Like most people, I will be interested to see how the lens performs.  I wish they had made something at this price point that supported L lenses.

How exactly is this a "breakthrough product"? It is basically a camcorder put into a DSLR like body. I doubt that anyone is going to be using this as a stills camera. The closest comparison are camcorders like the AX100, which can also take stills extracted from the video stream, and also has a 10X lens in front of a 1 inch sensor. I would consider the XC-10 as the 4K evolution of the G30/XA20/25 series of camcorders.

This is not competition for the hybrid camera market.

2000$ for a camera that supports 4k and has better codec than my c100 MkII...
Im not saying that its better or it has better ergonomics but I feel a little disappointed right now....
And 4:2:2... Im very disappointed right now as a c100 owner!
