    I agree with you. That's why I still have not bought the BMPCC 4K.

    I'm pretty sure it's been stated in the past that 4:3 is not possible on the Pocket 4K, but I might be misremembering.

    Per the active area of the sensor, the 4:3 cut would be too narrow.

    I imagine, they could do a crop. Like 4:3 2k of full hd or is that also not possible?

    The thing is the 1080 mode right now is a bit too soft and I dare say almost unusable for film production. That extra 600 pixels wide would mean the world in order to get a good 1080 final image.
    I hate using 1080 on my pocket 4k as well. I prefer shooting 2k for the extra pixels and shooting 4k is sometimes overkill especially with storage. Has it been stated why 2k isn't an option on the P4K? Why is 4k available, but 2k isn't?

    2,5K would be perfect, since it matches the S16 crop and can give a clear 1080 finish video.

    I would be very pleased with that if it can be added. Before the camera was announced I was hoping it was going to be a 2.5K S16 sensor. But I love what we did get.

    Couldn’t you just shoot 4K with the S16 lenses then crop the lens vignette out in post? I don’t know, but it seems like it should give you the same(ish) results you’re looking for.

    Sure, but to shoot 2.5K with a S16 dedicated mode would be more efficient and don't forget the 90fps option.

    The thing is the 1080 crop is too soft with braw and prores.

    With the Demise of Cdng is almost unusable for most jobs and 2.5k would be a nice substitute

    I'm all for higher resolution crop high FPS modes.
    1080p at 120p isn't that nice. 2.5K at 96fps would be fantastic if possible- or even 4K DCI scope 2.4:1 at 72 or 96fps.
