    Panasonic's GH-5 has the same Sony sensor as Olympus OMD EM-1 MKIII. The difference is that Panasonic disabled the phase detect AF and kept only contrast detect, while Olympus kept both. In other...

    I still think a $1,500-$1,700 8K/40-45 MPX camera is feasible but it will eat into Panasonic's - and everyone else's - niches in the middle portion of the market at the time when there's a push...

    the TV of the future

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSfNzsY0LSU&feature=emb_logo

    A 165" Micro (.9mm) LED 4K TV, 1,000 nits.

    A little pricey at $400,000. A little heavy at 1.3 tons.

    Ya, I also think they'll have a "different" sensor for their pro 8K video camera but there's likely to be a significant overlap with A1 in terms of the general technology.

    And who's going to buy A1 then? Or FX-6? Or some other currently unknown model?

    PS. Sony really owes the FX-9 owners now. I expect FX-9II to be out sooner rather than later.

    Fry's in Burbank was where I saw my first flat screen TV - a 46" Philips plasma with a $14,000 price tag. It was barely connected to a source and the picture was mostly snow. In SD.
