    Since the camera doesn't ship till September, there should be still time for firmware requests, within reason based on hardware capabilities.

    Full super16 crop, at whatever the resolution is, raw and ProRes. Also standard16 4/3 would be cool but less likely.

    Scaled cinema 2k ProRes from the full sensor width.

    If it is a true 4/3 sensor full open gate, for anamorphic or reframing. Limit frame fate if needed.

    I can understand leaving out the 444 codecs due to single card recording, and lower market position.

    LOL, I think I’m gonna wait until we actually see a finished firmware before I start nitpicking.

    I don't think it is nit picking, there are a lot of 16mm shooters from the original pocket that would like the resolution boost without having to record the full 4K, the 1080 crop is much smaller. Maybe they will surprise with other resolutions, but doesn't seem to be on the NAB version, just throwing it out there.

    Happy with 4/3 sensor though, provides many options with speedbooster or not.

    I'd love it. I can imagine BMD already being aware of this request and maybe they put something together, we'll see.

    The Pocket 2 is the result of user requesting or nick picking at BMD so I see no problem to nick pick. I think BMD welcome ideas to make their cameras better. If they can do it they should implement it, if not at least they tried and just leave it out.

    Some companies pay people for ideas. Its a win win situation here.

    Yes I’m very happy with the sensor size so I can keep my lenses. S16 crop would be amazing not sure what resolution they could do but I would love 2.5k. Thats the only thing I could think of, the audio improvements alone are worth the buy for me.

    Was watching PT Anderson’s doc the other day (JUNUN) that he shot on the pocket (his main camera got held up in customs) It Looks great. I’m surprised bmd didn’t market that more. Or maybe they did and I missed it
