Micro SDI for Future Pocket Pro Models?

PostThu Apr 08, 2021 10:20 pm

I'm curious if this would be a great option for future Pocket Pro models. I absolutely prefer SDI over HDMI. It's overall so much better, and usually I never have issues with SDI staying secure on the device. But Micro SDI might be the perfect solution for the Pocket cameras.

You get the advantages of SDI, but in the Micro size. This keeps the footprint small. And, as the Video Assist 5" 12G HDR proves Blackmagic is already working with it and using it well.

What do you guys think?

Got another person interested in seeing SDI on the Pockets who just did the Wooden Camera PL Mount Modification for his 6K Pro.

If they add a PL, SDI and global shutter then it would be a killer camera.
But then why have a URSA, except if you need 12K.

But give it some time I think we will see something. ;)
