    I've had some conversations with an individual in Europe using one of the earlier versions an he loves it. He has stated it is not a cinema tool but one best utilized in inspection type activities. It is not cheap and uses a manufacturer provided camera and he has referenced the Sony A7 as that camera. There is also an IR camera for it. Brutally expensive but reliable.
