    I guess you refer to the 6d display..yea..bet that is going to be very expensive for early adopters. The article does not mention costs


    the motion capture is under $100 for the do it your self people..will probably hit the market for $1000. It also contains MUCH MUCH more info.
    Todays MO-cap is $80,000 and the places that have them are booked solid. this is talked about in the links. Canada seems to be the Mo-cap capital.
