Kickstarter fps1000 high speed camera update – options include 4K / Sony A7S-like sensitivity / 4000fps HD!

Pre-order the fps1000 here

There are some truly remarkable upgrade options for backers of the fps1000 project on Kickstarter, including 4K Super 35mm and also an ultra-sensitive Micro Four Thirds CMOS.

The original fps1000 Platinum with Micro Four Thirds mount which I backed was £899 and is now due to ship next month!

The higher end 4K and ultra-sensitivity options are an extra £1500 for backers and will likely ship Q4 2015.

Canon 5D Mark IV “will be 1080p” with Canon LOG

EOSHD - 5D Mark III rig

I received an email from a NAB show visitor today who had spoken off the record to Canon and was told the company believes a 4K 5D Mark IV would completely overshadow the recently released C100 Mark II and so wouldn’t happen, but that Canon LOG would likely go into the camera to allow shot-matching with the XC10.

So to segment specs based on price, Canon is allegedly sticking to 1080p on future DSLRs. The exception is the 4K XC10 which isn’t a competitor to the C100 Mark II or C300 Mark II as it features a tiny 1″ sensor and fixed camcorder-style zoom lens by comparison.
