Ok, NAB was three weeks ago and the folks at BlackMagic Design threw everyone for a loop with their announcement of their 2.5k Cinema Camera – but now we're two weeks out and we're wondering what your thoughts are after thinking about it for several weeks. I'm not seeing much chatter on twitter about it lately… has the excitement died off?
My initial reaction was kinda ho-hum… the deal breaker for me and I think many of you based on the recent HDSLR poll is the micro 4/3 sensor (tho frankly many posts don't really complain about that).
