The new camera outputs 4K raw uncompressed. Not very useful but still impressing.
Its also lightweight and have nikon mount so I suspect it is S35 or FF, although is not specified in the website.

it seems like its just a head, and you would need a very expensive souped up computer attached to it to capture anything. Which pretty much means it wouldn't be portable and more of a "Film Studio" 4k camera. Not really for location shooting. Looks more for specialty type shoots for green screen and slomo special FX. Although 60 isnt really a fast speed.
Unless the camera was only $5,000 USD it seems like it wouldn't be worth the cost considering you'd have to spend tons of money on the back end just to have a proper system setup. And by then you'll be in the range of RED which is completely mobile and needs no beefy computer attached to it.
Specialty camera. I dont see this doing anything to the market at all, considering there are many more cameras out there that are faster or easier to setup.

That camera is $96,000USD
I think it's more based on scientific usage rather than cinema.
