Sharp has unveiled a new 8K Micro Four Thirds video camera at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Not much else is known yet about the Sharp 8K camera, other than it bears a striking resemblance to the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K.

On the back is a 5-inch touchscreen, which articulates, and Sharp says its video camera will be able to record 8K video at 30fps in H.265 codec. What’s more, the company says it’s developing a 60fps recording at a lower resolution.

Other things we know: there will be on-sensor stabilisation, though no further sensor information has been given other than it is MFT format.

Price-wise, the Sharp 8K camera is expected to cost less than $5,000.

The camera on display at CES is just a prototype, and Sharp is expected to officially launch its 8K video camera at the NAB show later this year.
