CMOS gives you better dynamic range and low light performance, while CCD doesn't exhibit rolling shutter (which is greatly dependent on the readout speed of the CMOS sensor, so my A7R II isn't so hot, but the C300 Mark II is pretty solid).

However, not Super 16 sized sensor, which is this camera's selling point. There's a fair amount of great Super 16 glass out there, which is currently being under used, but could be used on digital cameras.

Plenty of other, more robust cameras, with better controls, better sensitivity, better DR, and better color can make use of 16mm glass.

It's looks robust to me, certainly more heavy dury than other cameras I've seen in this price range. Eccentric certainly, but, in the end, it comes down to a matter of personal taste and what works for each film maker.

Very true, however, I don't see it being used. It's something that sits on your shelf that you take down to show visitors so they can think better of you, not a tool to be used in actual production work that pays your bills.

It's more a camera for suitable music videos, perhaps advertisements that want a left field sensibility, certainly not one for a lot of professional productions.

We certainly agree the camera is not for paying projects.

At least I got their t-shirt out of my sponsorship -- which I now use as a fancy dust cover for my Akai MPC.
