Footage sample available:

H.264/MPEG-4

23.1 x 15.4 mm CMOS sensor (DX-format) for 14.8 million pixels

AF-area modes for live view and movies - four AF-area modes depending on the subject: normal-area AF, wide-area AF, face-priority AF, and subject-tracking AF.

They say there are more 4 lenses to come with the camera release, among them a Nikkor AF-S 85mm f/1.4 G with Nano coating; 10 lens elements in 9 groups.

The only question is: Will it deliver full HD out over HDMI while recording?

If not, FAIL!

Aliasing performance is key. As is price.

I agree with both. As far as that sample concerns (a poor example I know), I don't see any aliasing though.

Price should be around $500. A bargain, almost free for what it is.

There's definitely some stair stepping. Look at the MS of the girl blowing bubbles. You can see it in the orange shirt outline. Also, you can see it in the trees in the WS of the family back-to looking over the water. And in the second video, in the overhead of the girls in the livingroom, it's blatantly obvious on the white outline of the couch. It's also on the faces in that video (and in many other areas). Also, the skin tones are flat - as are any solid color areas, and the blowouts look pretty horrendous.

Yeah, but that's what a 5D looks like out of the box. For some reason there seems to be an aesthetic fashion - perhaps it's a Japanese thing - for really clippy pictures with lots of full white.

:lol: :-)

Odd and funny, how it is possible to release footage in that way.

I did catch worrying glimpses of slow shutter wobble in that, unfortunately.
