    The S6's door is on the other side and supposedly improved compared to the E2's door (at least according to one YouTuber), but that's pretty cool! Thank you.

    Last I heard, Z Cam was working on an add-on autofocus module for their existing cameras based on a time-of-flight imager. They posted a couple of videos of a very early-stage prototype in September, but I'm not sure what the current development status is.

    You can currently set the camera to "Human Track"...doesn't work like that though.

    One little note...there is 6K ProRes 422 HQ in the 2:4:1 mode and it goes up to 25p.

    It's of course a wide-screen aspect ratio.

    The best way to break a camera's image is to point it at the ocean, ha.

    A good demo and helpful debug tool for ToF sensors is to overlay the 3D depth map on top of live video (50% or less transparency, grayscale intensity works well). In this way we can see what the sensor sees, including any issues with IR light etc.

    If perfected, this can work with any system that can talk to it (+ all the lens calibration data). Probably only good for fairly close shots though if using an LED. A scanning laser can go kilometers (perhaps too complex/expensive). PD AF is probably best answer for future camera.

    Sorry for the delay if anyone's been interested.

    I don't film very much anymore (still love cameras though), and was waiting for this cool project to happen to share some footage but still waiting on clearance. I know frames are never truly useful as motion is best for overall analyzation, but just wanted to provide something.

    P.S. A Rokinon 20mm Cine DS was used. LOMOs from the Ukraine didn't work out for me. I'm not much of a filmmaker as other pros here, but if I'm making a "film" I'm not putting still lenses on the camera. The Rokinon was a compromise for me but that's all I had.

    One beauty of sharp 6K and 8K sensors (this camera is very sharp, too sharp) is having the availability to neutralize them with softer glass.

    Agree those stills look good. Certainly wetting my appetite to see more. What's the ISO f/ stop here?
