For a presentation I'm trying to assemble a more or less complete list of current 4K filming options for professionals or serious amateurs. Have a look at my list below, I'm sure there are more options I haven't thought about. If you have any add-on suggestions please let me know.

BMPCC and GX7 do not shoot 4K and I think there is no housing available yet for Samsung NX1.

The LX100 is a fixed lens compact.

You may need to look at dpReview to check the specs of some of these.

You might consider including a listing for external recorder housings needed to allow some of the cameras listed to shoot 4k underwater.

Ikelite does not make a housing for the Samsung NX1 -- its not on their website.  I asked them directly if they would, and they said no.
