    John, I think we can now safely assume that you have a Pocket 4K and have been shooting with it.
    Pocket 4K "Chaplin".

    6 years later it still has better image quality than many competitor's current cams.
    Nothing but love for BMD.

    Fully agree. I've said this before in another thread but last year we were filming some interviews that we used a FS7, FS5, A6500, A7s2. We had a real issue though as all the walls were white and we had green blinds that we had to have closed due to a busy road . Skin tones became a real issue. When we got it into post fixing those skin tones and also matching the different sony cameras even though we used the same profile throughout was a nightmare Took a few days to get it all sorted. The following month I ended up at the exact same location with pretty much the same conditions shooting some interviews for a different client on my BMCC ef in 442. When I got it back I was mentally prepared for the oncoming battle in post. it took me 5 minutes to sort. It is still a truly remarkable camera and holds it own against far newer setups.

    Speaking of going back. When everyone was waiting for it to arrive I worked on another forum blackmagicuser.net We couldn't compete with this forum, people were signing up and we tried to get conversations going but this place had already taken hold. Shame as it was a good looking site and we had tons of plans for it to make it not just a forum but a complete centre for articles, blogs, tutorials etc. Our vimeo group did work though and is it's still getting videos submitted to it: Vimeo BlackmagicUser

    Forgot to about this original thread. The first one with footage to download.

    https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/v...c.php?f=2&t=15

    Started nearly 6 years ago and I STILL see these shots being used for demos.

    I remember how skeptical I was until I saw the footage. Since then a believer.

    Can't wait to see the next set of tests for the new camera.

    Also, good to actually meet you John. Like I said then, you've helped us all a bunch.

    The Pocket had a bit of a price drop and it's now sitting at $975.

    Adorama lists it as a "close out" item.

    I wonder if it's next.
