The resolution has nothing to do with the depth of field characteristics. I still don't see where you get the 1280x720 number. The active area of the chip is 15x8 mm which is slightly larger than a Super16 frame, (much larger than 1/3") which in the last decades has been more than useful for feature film, documentary and television drama. So although you won't get the super shallow DoF 5D look from it, the sensor size is very useful for a lot of people.

Unfortunately it looks like lenses for 16mm cameras won't work on the BM camera so that's my main gripe.
