Wow Sharp is first out the starting gate with an 8K sensor plus full size HDMI socket and a mini XLR socket.
First prosumer 8K camera boasts Micro Four Thirds mount, 30fps, and a 5-inch articulated touchscreen.
Sharp has entered the consumer camera sphere completely out of left field, revealing what looks to be the first sub-$5,000 8K camera in Las Vegas.
The new camera, currently known as the Sharp 8K Video Camera. It was on display in prototype form only, with all specs and features subject to change, as full details will be revealed at NAB 2019 in April.
The prototype was mounted with an Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm lens, the first clue that the camera will feature a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) mount. It will be powered by a stabilised CMOS sensor, capable of delivering 8K resolution at 30fps (though Sharp stated that it was targeting 60fps) using the H.265 codec.
