    I can afford the Pocket 6k but at the moment somethng tells me this camera is not a mature design. Its still using a gen 1 USB-C which means SSD will bottleneck at 50fps or 60fps 1:3 BRaw. Its not LF or even close to true S35. The DR could be better than 13 stops even though its better than the Pocket 4k in the highlight. No locking EF mount is a real bummer and having used the Metabone SB Cine version I have difficulty going back to plain EF.
    I will wait when MkII or 8k comes out.

    While canon want to charge you nearly the cost of a 6k camera just to have a locking mount option on a C500 MK2 ?

    That is why Metabones Cine version is so great.
    If technology stood still in 3yrs times the C500 Mk2 would come down in price to be just affordable, but I doubt even BMD would stand still.

    I would say the Pocket 6K is very close to S35 (24x14) at 23x13mm, so only 1mm short. This is closer than the original Ursa/Mini 4K Camera. Oversized S35 sensors, like the Ursa Mini 4.6 or Pana EVA1 5.6 are larger than S35 in their full gate settings. Yes, it is nice to have a sensor on the large size, than smaller, but saying a camera is, “not even close to true S35” when it is on,y 1mm short, is a bit of a stretch my friend. In the digital world, there is no real “True S35” definition size, they are all over the p,ace, some smaller than the S35mm film gate, some larger. Even S35mm film gates were different, 3-perf, 4-perf, etc. I think it is safe to say, S35 is larger than Academy film 35mm (21.2x11.9) and smaller than LF (24x36 aprox).
    Cheers

    Then the original Ursa Mini is not true S35 then. Its a stretch to say the least even crop 1.7 are being called S35. Not buying that. Crop 1.55 is no S35 in my book.

    No, it was between STD 35mm gate and S35 gate sizes. I think perhaps they call them S35, to alert the user they need at least S35mm lenses to cover the sensor, where an Academy STD. 35mm lens (Zeiss Standard Speeds for example) might not cover these larger than STD 35, but not quite S35mm sensors.

    Some so called Full Frame Cameras are not quite 24x36 either, for example, the Nikon Z6 is 23.9X35.9 at max gate size. Digital sensors approximate their Film gate size counterparts, but my not be exactly the same.
    Cheers
