It features an easy-to-use knob and digital display system (similar to the D1) and can be controlled directly by Broncolor's "bronControl" app. The Siros and F1600 will be compatible with all existing Broncolor modifiers.

4 Schaffer Christian's curator insight, Today, 8:37 AM

As far as the camera-making industry goes, there are only a few major companies that produce them. Therefore, this industry could be considered an oligopoly. Samsung made a camera which is far more expensive than the competitors camera's that have recently debuted on the market. I believe this is somewhat of a dumb choice, all though the camera may be an excellent one, I see it as far to expensive to compete with other companies. $1500 dollars is somewhat far-fetched when it comes to a camera, it is only a picture, and a mediocre camera will still do the job. I think Samsung will lose some financial opportunities by releasing this camera on the market.
