FS5 Ranting.

$500 dollars for the 120 FPS upgrade? I already paid $500 for my raw upgrade. They want $500 for the mpeg codec upgrade. If I were to the camera today, it comes with $1000 rebate. Too bad I bought it when it came out. I probably should have gone with the FS7 at the time since I'm being nickel and dimed for all the upgrades.

The A7S even has 120 fps continuous. I find this stupid.

Mind you I bought the raw upgrade and have an inferno so I can get my 240 continuous without purchasing this upgrade, but when I'm in a run and gun situation or foul weather, it would be nice to have the stripped down rig.

End rant. For now.
