USB 3.2 connectivity

2TB nvme SSD internally, allowing 35 minutes of recording

Locking E mount by default, also compatible with PL, EF and M mounts

60+ minutes (claimed) runtime on 1 battery

Weighs 600g (body only)

Integrated support with Movi pro & Alta systems (gimbals & drones)


Starts at $9995- comes with 1TB SSD (the 2TB version costs $10995)

You can reserve one right now, but they'll start shipping it in Q2 2021.

Yeah, $10,000 seems about right for those specs. I think it'll definitely find use in industry, especially as a hire cam.
