Sony FS5 II

Sounds very interesting! Unfortunately it looks as though you will need an external recorder to get the 4K 60 and 120 fps which is only available as FS RAW format. QFHD (3840 x 2160) 4:2:0 (presumably 8 bit) is the best it can do internally, however it is nice you can get XAVC HD 4:2:2 10 bit internally up to 240 fps (though it is Long GOP and not XAVC Intra).

Good Camera

Not sure if they should have just made a firmware update for the mk i instead of making a mk ii but I guess there was something they had to replace or add to the computer in order to get these specs. Either way, mk i was a great camera and mk ii just improves on it in the right ways without raising the price. Good job Sony. Wasn't a huge Hardware remake, but still a very solid camera with good upgrades that anyone who doesn't already own a mk i should consider.
