BMPCC4K V2

PostSun Jul 14, 2019 9:50 am

I'm hearing rumours of a Pocket 4K 'update' with a tilt screen, optional loupe, built in battery grip, various anamorphic modes and a user adjustable sensor crop from full sensor to S16 like the JVC LS300 VSM feature.

Hope it's true. :o

"Those who say don't know, and those who know don't say." That sums it up about rumors.

It seems early in the game for BMD to release a new version of the Pocket 4K, but who knows. The generation 2 Ursa Mini Pro 4.6K came out 2 years after the first generation (Ursa Mini Pro was announced in March 2017; Ursa Mini Pro Gen 2 was announced in March 2019). Pocket 4K was announced in 2018.

With many folks in some countries still awaiting deliveries, and having received my camera just over two weeks ago, announcing a Pocket with very significant improvements is going to feel painful. Then again, if it was only announced and still took another year to deliver, not quite the dagger to the heart. Change is constant. There are several areas that could benefit from improvements, while the Pocket 4K is a winner overall.

Honestly though, I’d rather see that new optional viewfinder, like the BMVF, but less expensive, articulated, smaller, and able to be positioned anywhere. The existing BMVF is near perfect except for its design as a dongle to the BM Shoulder Mount kit. A BPVF isn’t going to be painful like a significantly redesigned Pocket camera; it’ll be an enhancement to the camera you own.

If true, I doubt that it will be 1299.

In a future version ("II")
    I would like to see the 2 internal drives removed and replaced with a caddy/cartridge system that utilizes dual slots ->2x, M.2 SSD 80s, that can facilitate dual recording for data safety. SSD are cheap, and EXTREMELY fast and by using a caddy/cartridge system they can be popped in and out as needed.

    I would also like to have a large capacity battery/grip that holds a "standard" form factor even if that means a cartridge that holds 4x 18650 lithium ion types (or whatever) giving around 40++Wh. (Or maybe in a flat style that is built into the bottom.

    Lastly a screen that flips up and down to see better...
Soooo... that is my 1.5 cents. :D
Thank you!

Technically, wouldn't this be V3 since V1 was the CDNG version? ;)

To my knowledge BMD has only updated the ursa cameras. If they would update the p4k I would like it to be in another form factor, maybe like a bigger bm micro studio camera (wider/deeper). Plus all the other things mentioned here.

They can put this https://www.fairchildimaging.com/produc ... rs/mst4323 new Fairchild lmaging's BSI sCMOS 3.0 4K sensor to same body or to the BMMCC-like brick. This allow to match camera to classic look ofBMCC/BMPCC/BMMCC/Ursa4.6k dual gain sensors.

Nah! They'll be coming out with what I suggested, a small form-factor, fixed lens, MFT sensor, weather-proof, cine camera. :)

May have slighly better color depth at the cost of low light capabilities I think.
Still can stretch Pocket 4K footage too make it look like it has better depth though.
Works fine on the eyes but not so much on the vectorscope lol.
