This camera sounds amazing. Sure it is only the start for this, as with a foot and a half wide sensor and a 755 megapixel sensor recording at up to 300 frames per second, the recording and post on this camera is going to be literally insane! And it is all connected to a giant rack of computers and storage. The thing is the ability to refocus and change the depth of field, create a stereo 3D image, and record a 3d Image of the scene to add in CG, or to create a perfect matte with any background, and add 3D without needing to motion track is amazing, it is a game changer for high end productions. Especially once this technology matures, and shrinks a bit in size and in price, this will change everything.
