    Thanks.

    I misread that chart.

    How do you think this compares with the Air, Hot?

    I think Olympus Air is not a "good" camera, Z also.

    For this money you get a small, GOOD camera, with lens, EVF, display - f.e. Lumix.

    Small doesn't mean ideal for photo/video - for copters too expensive.

    I've Sony QX10, price ist now 99, 10x zoom, video 1920x1080 ... seldom used.
    Fixed lens, sensor 1/2.3" ... Iiiiii do not use such things with extra lenses. :-)

    I have some difficulty understanding Hot's response.

    No matter ... This Z camera may be better for some things, but the Air is much less expensive and should be fine for some things too. I've ordered the Air mostly as a specialist toy to play with and see what I can get out of it, it's cheap enough to do that.

    The E1 (bad choice of name for a m4/3 camera) looks impressing if it holds its promises. How they can get this into production on $43,000 (their Kickstarter target) is beyond me, but there must be other money behind also, since they apparently already have a sensor, so maybe the Kickstarter thing is just to test the interest in the market.

    There is another alternative available also, from Blackmagic, a well established company in the m4/3 video world. Like the E1, it's basically a 4K video camera, but with many advanced features that the E1 seems to lack. It's slightly heavier at 310g, and more expensive at $995:

    This blackmagic camera is really interesting!

    Also found a great introduction to XAVC, worth looking for some more detailed info - at least for me as a photographer, who is not totally up to speed in video.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=se1L3upGH6w

    I found that the Sony A7rII is already implementing the XAVC codec, which gives it a great competitive advantage for video, especially 4k video. Same for the RX10mkII and RX100mkIV BTW.

    Wonder when XAVC will be implemented by other vendors like Olympus, Panasonic, Nikon etc. - or is it already happening? Or what else are they using and is this perhaps better?

    And what is Canon cooking on this front?

    The Blackmagic is darn cool too.

    I wish I had more time to work with and learn the video capture world. Without being able to give my full attention to studying it, it's an alphabet soup of protocols, formats, containers, etc. ... sigh.
