Seems the Delta is now just a digital camera, rather a hybrid film/digital camera.

Looks awesome. An combination of a Penelope (the actual body) and a Dalsa Origin (the chip). No other video camera that I know of has an optical VF. That (among other things) should be the benchmark by which other pro video cameras are measured against when it comes to on-set functionality. By that standard only the Alexa and Panavised Sonys come close. And at "beyond 4k" probably only RED cameras cameras, maybe Alexa, come close. But instead of the heavily compressed RED "raw" footage one gets today, the Delta's SSD recording media, will actually enable one to record fully uncompressed files on board.

Just its ability to be switched between film and digital acquisition alone will make it the best camera on the market, IMO. SWEET!

This newer version is just a digital camera, it's not just a magazine on the film cameras, there's a new front without a film movement.

It's mentioned here: http://www.fdtimes.c...camera-reports/

The Sony F65 seems to be creating waves as a new 4k camera as well.
