There was certainly a lot of hype when AJA introduced the CION 4K/UHD and 2K/HD Production Camera back at NAB 2014, but I don't think it received quite the market traction they were hoping for. I'm not sure if it was the choice of PL Mount, the required AJA SSD Paks for internal recording media, lack of RAW, lack of a flat LOG Profile, or the price of just under $9K.
Whatever the reason, right now you can get OVER 40% OFF the AJA Cion if you purchase it through Adorama (found here). Is this discount enough to get more AJA Cion Camera Adopters?
