I use to be a strong proponent of video in a SLR but have changed my position especially now that there are s many other options. I wish that they would skip the video completely and lower the cost a bit instead. This would be a fantastic camera at say $2500
Adding the additional hardware needed to record the audio probably doesn't add more than about 150 Yen to the materials cost of the camera. Actually adding the WiFi, NFC and the GPS combined probably only adds around 1500 Yen in added hardware costs. These are all now mature products, that are pretty much available in single chip packages. I'm currently working on a computerised control system, and have been looking at these types of devices and to include WiFi, NFC, GPS and 869 MHz long range RF comms would only add about £75 to the hardware costs, and I'm looking at buying single units, not hundreds of thousands, or more per year! Actually I really want to add the GPS, but I can't really think of a valid reason to add it.
Oh and 100 Yen is approximately $1.
