Definitely has that Canon Tax on it, this puppy will set you back $7K

Rubbish. As a tool for doing the job the price is fine. This is a proper professional camcorder delivering broadcast ready 4K@50p HDR 4:2:2 10-bit video for less than the price of the car the camera operator drove to get to the gig.

Nigelbb is almost a Bob Dylan level artist.

I remember when Dylan calculated in his head the cost of the car to get him to the gig.

And in-between writing lyrics he obsessed about the cost of his guitar and whether it would be accepted by his clients.

If I were in the market for an all-in-one video camera, then this looks excellent. I do sometimes get to a point of complete saturation in the pursuit of the perfect camera setup for all my work and think about throwing the towel in and buying something like this!!!

I was seriously considering the Panasonic AG-DVX200 at one point. But there was something weird about the image...

Image looks great here.

Just pick up a Sony EX1 and be done with all this camera nonsense for another decade! :joy::smirk::tounge:

If the cost of the XF705 is a bit rich for your blood the new JVC GY-HC500 at half the price (£3395+tax) might be for you. It also has a 1" sensor & can record 4K@50pHDR 4:2:2 10-bit video plus has a 20x power zoom. Interestingly it can record to SSD.

These seem like they are worth it , especially now jvc is doing 10 bit 422 at 4k! Hoping they will bring this option or something better to a new cinema camera or even the Jvc gy-ls300.
