To me too. At least it‘s FF and has internal RAW recording. If thus modules are as described optional, the body would have a modular approach which I would admittable like very much. But it‘s a CTR1, so let‘s waite what will come.
BTW: I‘m curious where Harryfilm is. Wasn‘t he procliming a super MF Cine! Photcam..?
The upcoming deal is that a certain multimedia company has a 50.3 Megapixel (8192 x 6144 pixels) Medium Format camera that has a 56mm by 42mm 4:3 Bayer GLOBAL SHUTTER (i.e. NO MORE rolling shutter!) MF sensor that does full 50.3 megapixel stills images at up to 60 fps burst rate at a user-selectable 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 at up to 16-bits per channel colour sampling (i.e. up to 48-bit RGB and 16-bits Alpha Transparency channel or a 16-bits Subject-Distance-from-lens measurement channel) in FULL RAW or 2:1 or 3:1 compressed RAW ...
it can do 50.3 Megapixel 4:4:4/4:2:2 intraframe compressed stills using JPEG-2000 (Wavelet) compression and do DCI 8K video (8192 by 4320 pixels which is a Cinema 1.89:1 aspect ratio) at Wavelet JPEG-2000 Intraframe, FULL and Compressed RAW or use Interframe compressed video using MP4/H.264/H.265 codecs at up to a full 60 fps 4:4:4/4:2:2 up to 16-bits ber RGB + A/D channel or record at DCI 4K (4096 by 2160 pixels) at up to 240 fps OR record 2048 by 1080 pixel at up to 960 fps!
For lower resolutions, there is a user-selectable Downsample-from-Full-Area of Image Sensor mode or use simple crop mode! Multiple cinema, still photo and broadcast video aspect ratios and resolutions are built-in with NO EXTRA codec licence fees! There is also a built-in multi-step neutral density filter, in-body and in-lens stabilization system, newly re-designed multi-type FAST auto-focusing system with human-face and animal-face Eye detection, focus points that cover the ENTIRE screen area, User-loadable LOOKUP tables and BUILT-IN hot-swappable SSD Hard Drives allowing for currently TWO 4-Terabyte storage media in RAID format for maximum security (i.e. simultaneous writing) or sequential writing (for long recording times), CLEAN 8K 60 fpsd 4:4:4 HDMI and DisplayPort outputs and onboard USB-3 port for Metadata and external photo/video storage. Two XQD-card slots for high-speed lower-resolution proxy imagery and/or extra safety of stills/video streams.
The camera has a swivelling ergonomic handgrip, a swivelling high megapixel OLED full-menu-selectable touchscreen suitable for vLogging and Selfies (body is a tad heavy though for holding with a single hand - better work out those arms!), full electronic GLOBAL SHUTTER, high pixel sensitivity since it's photosites are about 6.8 microns which is a little larger than a Canon 1Dx Mk2's (6.58 microns) photosites and the new camera has one of the longest-lasting batteries in the business for all day use!
Lenses will NOT be cheap because many of the primes are VERY FAST at f/1.2 or f/1.4 and the upcoming zooms are faster than Canon equivalents. Lens and optical elements are ALL designed in Germany with some lens optical elements also manufactured in Germany with final assembly in Japan. Weatherproof and DESIGNED for outdoor/indoor Sports/Action/Wildlife still photo/video enthusiasts, this camera and it's lenses is the FIRST Medium Format combined Stills/Video ruggedized pro-level camera at a price point of about $10,000 US for the body!
THAT is what is coming real soon now ....
They went ALL OUT on this FLAGSHIP MF Combined Stills/Video camera AND WAIT until you see the upcoming 2/3rds inch and APS-C large-sensor 50.3 megapixel image sensor, 4K DCI resolution screen IP-68 RUGGED and waterproof super-smartphones from the SAME company! ..... WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The MF camera and the large-sensor super-smartphones are MADE FOR pro-level cinema/broadcast video recording AND pro-level stills photography! The manufacturer went ALL OUT on these three items and they don't care what it does to their own or anyone else's product line. The engineering and design management team specified they are making CATEGORY KILLERS for cinema and smartphones at price points that are more than just reasonable for what you get! They do not care WHAT these products do to their other product lines! They now have truly OUTSTANDING Bang-for-the-Buck specifications and final image quality and they want the whole imaging markets to themselves from the low end to the high end using the smallest product line possible!
In my opinion, the MF camera is absolutely THE EQUAL OF an Arri Alexa-65 and Phase-One in terms of image quality and colour science in a smaller and more ergonomic form factor! The large-sensor super-smartphones are BMPCC 4k camera killers while still allowing you to make/receive phones calls/texts/email, run whatever apps you like AND play games or do other web tasks at the end of your shooting day!
And it's ALL coming soon to a camera and online store near you!
