I feel the same way really. Some pretty amazing specs though! Let’s see how the overheating situation plays out.Might be just me, but this makes me even happier with my R5. The specs sound good, but this is as good as it gets for them and it is 7,5k euro.
Nothing makes me feel as though I am missing out with the R5. And there is still the R1 to come.
I think its more about simple physics. Its just difficult to achieve these sensor readouts without generating heat. Even higher end, dedicated video cameras overheat on their highest settings. 8k is a lot of data...its not for video, might be a cripple. no one wants to make a perfect camera, its bad for business.
So... its basically a 5DS for 3 times the price, with less noise, more DR and a few more frames per sec
What am impressive improvement once again - a realy impressive featureset.
I think the a7s III was very specific for video people - while this camera looks like a perfect, high end allrounder. Sport, landscape, productshots, video... it simply got everything one could wish for...
It runs "up to 30 minutes", according to sony in 4k60 or 8k. So similar overheating is to be expected like on the R5. Lets see how this plays out on the fans :-D
I do have a few (minor) reservations about the R5, but the on/off switch on the left side is perfectly fine, makes the right side a lot cleaner and the shutter button can be at the perfect positive with the right angle, I'd rather have it as-is.Like Nikon, Sony do put the on/off switch in the 'right' place. Flick and click in one motion.
