looks cool. Does it use the batteries in the series or at the same time?

It will use the dual external batteries and once they are out of power the BMPCC will use the internal battery.
so u can say it can triple your shooting time and if you have multiple batteries (charged) you can continuously shooting and replacing batteries :)

I don't notice any LEDs telling me to replace the 2 external batteries now or in the near future. (I suppose I have to replace both at the same time)

If the setup uses the batteries is in series, yes you will have to replace the row batteries at the same time.

How much does it costs?

For around 50€ you can get this powerbank (you need to solder your cable) which powers the BMPCC for about 5 hours even in low temperatures.

I’m new to using forums so be patient please. I have a FXLion Nano One battery it has USB A; micro USB and USB C ports. Charging is no problem but not sure which port/what cable I should be using to deliver power to my BMPCC 4K thanks Dogrough

Hello everyone,
I don't want to bother you here with my question but I really don't know where I can ask this kind of stuff, so I will be quick :). I bought a blackmagic pocket cinema 6k from somebody on internet, but I can not find the serial number. I guess the serial number should be definitely on the box as a proof of authenticity. Am I right? or maybe I don't know which is the serial number as I suppose that it should be slightly different from other camera company's. So my question "the serial number should be on the box? if it is how does it look like?"

Any of your answer is much appreciated.
Thanks

Pop out the battery and read the barcode label underneath it.

It's also in the setup screen in the menu.
