With no less than four multicam projects, October definitely qualifies for the title "multicam month". The ability to sync up three or four camera feeds and assemble a basic cut in a live switching-type fashion has always been one of my favourite features in Media Composer. It is also a MASSIVE timesaver, allowing me to do in realtime what would have taken hours to do manually. In 8.4 multicam is still going strong, even on my rapidly aging HP Elitebook.

I'm also really thrilled with the quality I've been getting out of my FS100 and X70 cameras. The little X70 works really well on the slider and I have no trouble getting its images matched with the bigger FS100. This little camera is turning out to be the best investment I made this year.
