Looks like the mockup is missing the FMU.

Most likely because this is the prosumer model, so just like the AX2000 it's missing the FMU that it's sister NX5 has.

Re: Sony at CES2013

I think we need to see a more side view picture because with the cover plate that comes with the NX5U it doesn't look too different to the picture. You are correct though that the AX2000 does not have the connector cover plate like the NX5U. I just thought that the FMU connection may give an opportunity for a fast memory device based on the FMU128. I will watch with interest.

Re: Sony at CES2013

What is the appeal of a 4K video camera at the consumer level? --they have nothing to play the output on that is affordable.

In my case, it's similar to me once owning a Ninja 1000 motorcycle. I sure couldn't use its full potential on the street, but it was nice to know it was there if I needed it.

Right now it might be impractical to shoot 4K, but think about what the images would look like even down converted to 1080.
Some people like good dynamic range, latitude, etc. I prefer sharp, crisp, crystal clear images. It'd be nice to have both, but I have a limited budget.

For me it may be the same as when I first got my FX1. I used the HDV and cropped a normal DV file which allowed about a 2:1 zoom and pan over the image. Shot a concert with FX1 fixed mainly full stage and edit looked like a 4 camera shoot !!! With 4K one could do the same thing and extract a 1920x1080 image. Could be handy !!!

Re: Sony at CES2013

Ron, Glenn, yes that is what I want one form to downconvert to 1080, and then zoom in and pan around, and crop without losing resolution. But that is prosumer fun. I just hope Sony doesn't dumb it down too much thinking they are targeting consumers.

Re: Sony at CES2013

Folks

Thanks for responding to my original post ... I am super excited about 4k in a nx5 form factor ...

Regarding the memory, if storage is to XQD card, then I assume the 64gb card for 4K would be the minimum practical size
The price for this card is 399.00 right now on B&H .. So 800.00 for storage on top of the price of the cam
