Hi folks,

This morning I came across this 12MP camera from JVC which can fire a burst at 50 shots per second at 3840 x 2160 for up to 130 shots total per burst:

Except, of course, being from JVC it's actually primarily a video camera with a 1/2.3″ sensor. You can access the JVC press releases here and here.

The predecessor of this camera had dimensions of 131x67x122mm. Compare with the Sony NEX-7 with dimensions of 120x70x42.6mm before you add a lens.
Unfortunately the images aren't quite to scale and the NEX-7, with its APS-C sized sensor, actually has a smaller frontal area than the JVC GC-PX10 with it's fixed lens. They are two very different cameras in a lot of ways but I wonder if this convergence in body size and shape might extend one day into ergonomics. It would require a radical rethink of lens ergonomics on the stills camera side of the equation and I don't know how well that might be received. And, of course, more traditional DSLRs and video camera would still command a hefty market share.

So how about an interchangeable lens 24MP stills camera, such as the NEX-7, which could also shoot 50 shots per second at 12MP with bursts of 130 shots and which also had the ergonomics and video capabilities of a more dedicated video camera such as the JVC GC-PX10? It doesn't seem too far a stretch to believe it might be possible. Would you buy one?

Bob.

Nah, I want my cameras heavy, bulky, and indestructible ;)

I think over time pixel binning for video is inevitable for overcoming sampling issues with high resolution still sensors in that role. That would in turn allow downstream processing workload to trade between resolution and speed.

While personally I don't have interest in video, I think there will come a point where video becomes a brute force high fps still shooter, but the resolution needs to increase significantly before then. A proposed future beyond-HD format which is say double the linear resolution of existing 1080 would be acceptable.

I'm still waiting for the day of capturing a shot after it happens. That is a video like application, keep recording continuously into a buffer, and when you press the button, you can have what just happened!

All the above will only really be suitable for main sensor view camera (mirrorless and SLT), so SLRs will be out of the club there.

Popo, I think some Casio camera already did that, it has a 100-shot buffer as soon as you half-press the shutter or something.
