12k :Black Magic Camera

Blackmagic Design company had announced a whooping 12 k resolution raw recording with Super 35 sensor of color array  that it features a unique (non-bayer) design with an equal number of RGB pixels…usually a bayern design will have red,blue and more green color array( 25,25 and 50).

Internal ND filter,Interchangable lens mount, no crop factor in recording in all resolution.

This 12 k video may benefit for oversampling for 8k or 4k video and reframe for CGI shots.

Getting 100fps at 8k is another point that may create some interest.

But heating issue, huge data and non exhibit (12k) format all are some points to be answered by this model once it hits the market.
