  1. #1 Will I be able to use my Juicebox with the BMPCC 4K 
    I have been powering my original BMPCC via a JuiceBox for some time. Given that the new Pocket camera will use a different power connector, I am wondering if anyone produces a power cable that will connect the JuiceBox to the new camera.

    I'm hoping Juicedbox will make the necessary gear available once the P4K ships.

    Lemo connectors are expensive, and Pro quality cables run $60-75 each, so this one for $40 is a bargain.
    Cheers

    Welcome to the LEMO land future Pocket 4K users LEMO connector clamps very cool to the socket, but this is probably the only good thing about LEMO.
    Any cable that use LEMO connector became 20x times more expensive because it is mostly used in professional high end equipment.

    If you lost or damage that cable you never find replacement in 99.9% of local markets.
    No one knows the correct DC polarity of LEMO cables. Always check check check. Some devices use 2 pin power connector, some 3 pin, some
    4 pin
    Prepare to endless soldering and paranoia that you may burn something.

    LEMO connectors can not be rotated. They will always stuck in fixed position. This is a huge problem for angle LEMO connectors.

    "Thank you" BlackMagic for doing all incompatible with all your previous devices that use normal 5.5mm DC sockets.

    @shijan There is a solution. Simply disassemble the body remove the lemo shit and pull two wires out of the body

    I've bought some custom cables from Alvin before and he does very good work (and quickly). It might seem overly pricey at first, but personally I'd rather not cheap out on a cable that I actually rely on.

    The good news is, it always doubles as a prop
