I'm curious if anyone has started to do a breakdown on the current 4k options at the prosumer level with housing options already on the market or announced. I've seen a number of mentions on specific cameras but no comparisons, so I will start with listing what is currently available to my knowledge, and what we know of that might be interesting down the line. If you feel inclined, please comment with additions, pro/cons, opinions, experiences, etc:
Sony FDR-AX100 - Aditech Housing available (anyone have experience with this housing manufacture?)
Sony FDR-AX1 - Gates Z100 housing compatible
Sony PXW-Z100 - Gates housing available, Nauticam to release housing in next 6 months
Sony NEX-FS700 - Subal housing available
Blackmagic Cinema - Nauticam housing available
Blackmagic Production - Nauticam housing available
Panasonic GH4 - Selux announced housing, possible Nauticam GH3 fit
Canon 1DC - Aquatica, Nauticam, Sealux housings available
I'm sure I have missed a number of cameras and housings, so please add to the list. If you have experience shooting any of these, insight would be welcomed.
Beyond this the it looks like prices start to go through the roof for full setups such as a Sony F-5/55 or the RED Cameras. The AJA CION certainly looks like an interesting camera as well, but who knows when it will be released followed by a housing, though I would suspect some of the housing manufacturers are already working on this one.
Black Magic cinema camera is not a 4k it is a 2.5k
I already bought the BMPC 4k hence it will offer lossless raw recording internally. No need for external recorders/monitors. I've got the BMCC as well so the transition for me was easy . I making a custom universal housing.
