Panasonic has gone off their rockers. There I said it, and you will be saying it too after you read about this. The company has developed an innovative 4 camera system that records 720p video at an astonishingly wide 64:9 aspect ratio. They say that the camera (camera system?) is developed for use in sports.
I’m not sure about you, but I am both amazed and confused by this product. First off, I can not think of any situation where 64:9 would be an ideal resolution for viewing anything. Secondly, I think it is really cool that the system used four cameras and then is able to stitch the video together into one seamless shot.
The other issue to think about here is the price. I mean, only the richest of richest sports organizations would be able to afford a camera system like this. If you need anymore proof of how high it is going to be priced, look no further than the fact that the price is “undisclosed”. Basically, that means lots and lots of zeros. Just think of all the R&D that went into a camera system like this… I don’t even want to know…
