    Looks like it is $10,000 high speed 4K camera called WAVE:

    If true, it’s kind of disappointing for a $10K camera, at least based on the pics. It appears the video out is HDMI only.

    Very cool. looks like they went with the shorter back and wider non symmetrical body design, vs what RED did with the Komodo. Should be a more gimbal friendly camera design.

    Yeah, if you watch the Instagram story from that poster (@chrisvtv), he breaks it all down and shows more of the camera.

    - 4K RAW S35 sensor up 422fps currently, but should eventually be able to go to 1000 fps
    - No monitor on the camera, need to attach a monitor with HDMI
    - Internal hard drive, probably SSD (but has a USB-C port)
    - Need to use Freefly Systems software to handle their RAW files and then transcode
    - Freefly Systems Twitter page alludes to it being a native locking E-mount

    Camera has been launched. Interestingly it also has a global shutter:

    Perhaps finally a more affordable option than a Phantom Flex.

    Can get a 2.5K Phantom Flex for $22k on Ebay. Twice the cost, but I wonder how the two would compare.

    I think it's definitely a space that needed one...something new, different.

    If one had dreams of making food & beverage spots/commercials and had some extra money available, this would be a good time to get some practice with it if it ships soon.

    I'm not sure it makes a ton of sense for food/beverage given the low sensitivity and DR. At the shutter speed and apertures you need (the latter for adequate macro DOF), the cost of lighting will swamp the cost of camera. Sure, maybe it makes sense for an up-and-comer.

    But for sports/action in daylight or bright stadiums, the compact and portable form factor makes sense and the lighting burden is handled.

    It doesn't appear to have a looping cache other than the entire drive. And no trigger is a feature? I'd like both a pre and post trigger as options. Nice to see a new competitor in the 1k fps space.
