Since this topic is here, I have a few question to confirm because every features should be finalized by now.

1) can pocket camera do clean hdmi output?

2) is there overheat issue if I shoot long like 1-2 hours continuously?

3) what's the maximum recording time for 64G card?

1.) YES - (from The PocketCam page) You can connect the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera to a huge range of equipment such as electronic viewfinders, monitors and disk recorders, using the camera’s built in HDMI output. The Micro HDMI output uses a small Type D connector and cables with Type D to full size Type A connectors are commonly available at low cost. The camera’s HDMI output includes an overlay setting with frame guides, f-stop, frame rate and more. The overlay can easily be disabled for a clean video output!

Don't get me wrong, but: all of these questions have been answered in this forum, usually a couple of times!

Yes, clean HDMI output (yet at 10 bit, while raw records 12 bit). Overheating? Might depend on your setup; put it in a cage, add lots of gear around, and you could run into problems filming continuosly at the side of a light can... or in other words: depends. Maximum recording time for 64 gb (in ProRes) is somewhere between 40 to 50 minutes.

Well, sort of. If the pocket is like the BMC 2.5 then you can shoot time-lapse photography. You could set the time to 1-2 sec and take a few frames as "stills". Of course, the resolution would only be 2k.

On the Pocket Cam, the resolution will be 1920x1080...I *think*.

Correct. The BMPCC pocket cam will only record 1920 x 1080.
