    It's close to being the camera that I've been waiting for in many ways:

    https://www.l-rumors.com/real-world-...-mount-camera/

    VistaVision, sensor, 4:2:2 4K, electronic shutter. In video mode it's good enough to use as a DSMC (i.e. shoot video and extract frames later).

    What I don't like is the size of the sensor, which in this case seems to be a compromise I'd rather not have in a digital camera. I'd rather S35 with IBIS. I'm already thinking of moving to Micro 4/3, as that's where all the fun is. But for cinema professionals, S35 is arguably the sweet spot, which allows the use of classic lenses while preserving the AOV of shorter lenses.

    I'm betting that a lot of you would prefer S35+IBIS than VV without IBIS. Edit: vote! :-)

    This is an interesting looking camera with some odd omissions and uncertainty. Almost like they launched too quickly.

    So questions:

    - there's mention of 1.5 crop, so does that mean that cine mode is a crop or is that optional? (4K out of 6K?)
    - No headphone meaning that it would have to be rigged for any real use.
    - Specs suggest that cDNG recording is internal then external, which is it? (Guessing external...)

    But it's a really attractive size, just a case of what the price would be...

    cheers
    Paul
