Interesting setup, but not cheap. I think the 4K camera setup is ~ $7,200 and 8K camera ~$11,500.

Focusing with manual focus lenses using LIDAR is interesting. A four mile transmission range from rig to director's monitor or the focus-pullers control unit is neat and probably stole from their drone setups. I have their focusing wheel on my Inspire 2 drone transmitter and it is a slick focusing feature and very smooth.

I question their claim of a 14+ EV step for dynamic range though. Might be a bit of a stretch there. The one cinematographer in the video says "Its all about control of the highlights" while saying nothing about what happens with the blacks which may go to mush or lose all shadows detail. Dunno.

I have literally no interest or investment in film making but I am always excited to see what creative minds can do with it, and here's the best (in my opinion) YouTube film making channel's hands-on with it:

And their first video project with it:

And mind you this is not just a gimbal rig as the title says, it's a true all-in-one camera system with a lens mount to boot too,
