For my thousandth post! - the camera was the Blackmagic Cinema Camera (link). 12 bit uncompressed RAW, 13 stops of dynamic range, and a ~3.3MP sensor (2432 x 1366px).
I know 3.3MP doesn't seem like a lot, but I can tell you right now I can print a solid 12x18. This is a video camera that costs less than a 5DIII.
So when I got my hands on the camera I wanted to know if I could finally use a motion camera to capture natural light portraits. I put the shutter to ~1/200 equivalent and just let the camera roll. It's amazing. No moments missed. No expressions escaped. I'm shooting stills - literally still DNG files - at 30 frames per second - 2x as fast as a 1DX for less than half the price.
Obviously there are issues and some of the comparisons I've made are only superficially fair, but I think this camera represents the future. Hold on to your butts.
