Launch Date and Personal Opinion
The company shall release the camera in the late Octobers in America and later extending it to other regions. The price for the same is yet to be officially declared but it is guessed to be around $10,000. To buy or not, totally depends on you. But as far as my viewpoint is concerned, looking at the PC requirements, there is a need of highly developed machines with upgraded processors increasing the investment in the gadget. But, the investment is surely worth it. Looking forward to its release in India.
