    Woah. [Checks the calender...nope, not April 1]

    Kinda makes the clean HDMI out firmware update look a little unnecessary.

    Edit: Well, not necessarily. Looks like this is for silent mode stills, but it's still cool.

    Assuming that this is for real, I wonder what the resolution of the DNG files is and if they'll be about to record at 24fps.

    I'm confused.

    Is this for the Mk2 or Mk3?
    Is this stills or video?
    Is it recording to internal media or via the HDMI to an external recorder?

    Presumably if its video it will be to an external recorder? Are they able to output 45 or 25 frames? What are the file sizes (full uncompressed)? Overheating?

    Kholi just beat me to it, but yeah, it looks like this is just for silent stills mode. That could be useful for timelapse, as it would save wear and tear on the physical shutter. Perhaps they could bump up and extend the burst speed enough to make it usable for normal video, but I wouldn't hold my breath. That's a big firehose of data to be dumping onto a CF card. It's hard to picture how they might be able to output raw DNG to an external recorder with the hardware as-is.

    I saw mention of a 2040x1428 resolution in one of the posts.

    But Nuemann Films are saying the image was captured in video mode, not stills....

    Live View mode, not video recorded. That's how you capture the still.

    Hmm. This was added sense I last looked at the page:

    Live broadcast, H.264 vs. RAW comparison and downloadable files all coming today. Stay tuned!
    Ok, so maybe this IS usable for movies? Still seems a stretch, but I guess we'll see.

    Neumann films seem to be testing this in the contaxt of making video; not making stills. This is where I'm confused.

    They say: It's technically photo but so is the RAW video on the BMCC. Image sequences.
