The release date for the Sharp 8K camera, announced last year, will come in the second half of 2020, a representative of the company has confirmed.

The Sharp 8K camera was announced as a prototype at CES in Las Vegas in January last year, and now, a year later, more specs have been revealed.

A video interview from CES 2020 with Cliff Quiroga, VP of New Business Development at Sharp, provides a glimpse at a working model of the Sharp 8K camera. In the interview Quiroga reveals that the camera will be able to record in 8K resolution at 30p, or in 4K or HD resolution at 60p at 200Mbits/s at 10-bit.

On the back will be a massive 5.5-inch fully articulating touchscreen LCD. Other features include a full-size HDMI output, mini XLR input and headphone and audio jacks.

What’s more, the Sharp 8K camera price tag is likely to be under $4,000.

The spokesman for Sharp said the camera is due to roll out in Japan in the second half of this year, with a US release date set to follow soon after.
