Is 4K *REALLY* all that important ? 


My impression was that it was mostly hype. I suppose as time goes on it will be mainstream but how far away is that?


If you could only chose ONE feature above any other thing, what would it be?

You lead, I'll follow :-)


I am pretty set on a Sony I think. That may change but for now its what I am thinking. Looking at an F23 2/3" sensor - no raw. The benefit is I can use a digizoom or digiprime lens on it. This is a lower cost way in at the higher end. Still not sure but reading and looking around a lot. The only problem is this means I would have to do white balance as I shoot - I wanted to go r a w to avoid this. Cant have it all I guess - unless you spend 5 figures. I am in this for the long haul. Once I commit to a platform that's it for me, so this is quite the thought process going on.


The housing is going to cost far more then the camera.

This is why I think the C200 is viable. For the price it offers a lot. Certainly better than the 1Dx MKII.


But yeah....the best camera in the world is no good to you if it's out of reach. 


It all depends on what your end goal is - if it's for your own kicks then maybe it's not worth the cost of entry to the r a w world. But all things considered today's cameras are a bargain compared with even 10 years ago. It's all relative.

yep - my bad- got the numbers mixed up. Been looking at so many cameras its becoming a blur. Its hard to keep up with it all. Also removed some cameras off the list since they dont shoot r a w



C200 looks good for underwater. Cost is certainly reasonable for what it offers.
