A digital x-pan.
You won't be seeing an x-pan on the 22nd. In the future who knows, but I think it extremely unlikely.
Why? When the x-pan first came out you didn't have the stitching options that we have now so it was pretty unique (a baby 6X17). Now you can easily stitch if you want, or indeed crop into a high resolution chip if that's what you need. Also it's not as if anyone if making chips in this format, it's just too niche a market.
A re-badged something else.
No no and no. This is a totally new thing.
People have pointed out that Mr Oosting has a background in luxury products (Vertu) but that has no bearing on this thing.
And I agree that the Lunar/Stellar this was very badly done, this is nothing at all like that.
I'll say it again, I really do think the thing is a game changer. I thought so the minute I handled it.
Bring on the 22nd!
