    Hello guys, during the past month and while I was using the Pocket4K I have tried to provide answers and feedback to many of you through here and my footage. I have finally got the time to start putting everything in an organised form. The videos below contain not just the basic "going through the specs" but also insights and best practises for each of the functions and topics. I will be doing more videos like these in order to cover other matters further such as formats and recording media, color grading, speedboosters, gimbals and so on. Thank you for watching and I hope it will be helpful for you!

    Part 1 "Unboxing"


    Part 2 "Form & Operation"


    Part 3 "Menus & Functionality"

    This is great, thanks for putting this together! Have you cut P4K with Ursa Mini 4.6k footage yet? How close do these cameras match out of the box?

    Thank you!

    I am on the second video. I'm so happy they finally included a auto white balance. Thanks for letting us know it is finally here.

    Thanks for posting these. Quite helpful.
    I have a request. Can you test if there is still latency with video out via hdmi? If so can you post a sample video showing this? I plan to attach an external monitor on this since you can't articulate the lcd.

    Dang Pidulgi, I think your selling more pocket 4k's than black magic here. Great reviews, really outlines how feature packed, how many things this pocket solves over the original and what a bargain it is!

    Makes me really want the camera but I think I'll wait until Braw is fully implemented otherwise I'd never have the storage space and really want to shoot 4k raw.

    I was referring to the "pocket" series of cameras. The URSA line has many things the pockets don't.
