Please don't tell me I'm the only one who had this visual in his head after hearing this news:  

I can't help but smile when I see that tiiiny camera coupled with the big ARRI zoom + mattebox on that massive tripod... :)

It's impressive and I've worked in 16mm for 30 years and it'll be great to be able to use 16mm cine zoom lenses.  But honestly, can't someone take them aside and show them what a camera looks like?  Absolutely terrible form factor.  No viewfinder for shooting in daylight and maintaining focus.  No XLR connectors or a small auxiliary connector for input from a mixer.

Absolutely, totally agree. I come from a film background as well and really wonder when someone is going to design a camera based around a useable viewfinder. That said, I'm really impressed that Blackmagic have proven that it is possible to record ProRes 422 in a compact form.
