Nikon D500

Perhaps if Nikon can update the firmware so that the camera can read 4.2K-4.4K internally then downsample to 4K, the crop would not be as severe. Being 8-bit anyways would make it not difficult a task for the Expeed 5. Of course the possible side effect would be a shorter recording time since the process can generate more heat than usual...

I would be OK with this.  Actually stoked.  As looking at lens options for nikon mount with a mtf sized sensor is not promising. It's still interesting as an HD cam with Nikon Dr and color.  Though i dont expect super sharp hd as there is a lot of binning going on with full sensor readout.  With the crop on the 4k theres no way the hd is scaled from a full readout.  Still waiting on bitrates.  Hard choice between this and the a6300.

Still no bitrate info.  Do They really expect people to go buy it without all the info?

The camera is ANNOUNCED, not released. Bitrate is just a value they switch in software, which is pretty easy to do just before release. I'm guessing the firmware for these cameras is far from final with 1 month still until release - and that the fact they haven't announced the bitrates means they are still tweaking image/video quality related features. I'd assume it's a similar story with the DL cameras and their missing video features: perhaps they will still add 24p even though it isn't in specs.

Half hour clip is roughly 8 * 4 gigs, so you can calculate the bitrate from that ;-)

UMMMM Anyone else notice the Electronic VR for 1080p video??
