This may be the first still camera / movie cam I actually lust for.*  Passes for film in my book, and it does low light to ISO…

 

 

wait for it…

 

 

400,000.

 

 

The sensor has something going for it you’ve never seen before.

 

Cost: $2500.  Ouch.  Nothing like the ridiculously priced Canon 1dc, which was the biggest ripoff I’d ever seen.  And this cam may blow it away.

 

* I have not seen the rolling shutter issue, as all shots are static and stable.  Needs more testing.

 

PS

I almost forgot!  Sony is claiming “15.3 stops” of dynamic range in raw mode.  Not sure the availability of recording RAW moving image, but we’ll see.  The ARRI Alexa has 14.3 stops; so ponder that, young grasshopper.
