It looks like they are still interested in supporting EF-M, if EF-M was truly dead they could have just made this RF. That's good because I've just bought a used M5 with the EF-M 18-150mm for a really good deal.
1. thermal image camera/sensor for police, fire & Rescue, Home builders, etc.
2. IR - night imaging
3. speeding device
4. Some sort of tool that needs imaging, (Thank You Captain Obvious)
5. Ghost Busting imaging device
Because the unit only pivots up and down, I would say it's not a gimbal and it's going to be a related device & not something we would use as photographers. With that said, lets think outside our box and come up with some fun ideas?
From what I read, its for Vloggers. The lens can be flipped by hand to bring the photographer / speaker quickly into focus and the hot shoe for a external mic rotates with the lens. The idea is to quickly switch from the Vlogger to focus another person or subject quickly and the mic switches as well. That allows a single hand held camera to be used. A interview might be a example.
