    Given BMD's track record, I would honestly be shocked if they didn't announce a new camera this year.

    If they do release one, I guess it will be an update of the pocket.

    Not gonna lie, I have such nostalgia and appreciation for the original 2.5k BMCC that I'd really be into a new version of that. It'd pretty much be a sensor-in-a-box version of the UMP for $3k I'd bet.
    My wife and I still shoot on this camera, even in 2018 it still makes nice images.

    There is more chance of getting 4k RAW at 60fps on something like a Micro Cinema camera than on a Pocket camera.
    Unless BMD decide to do away with in camera RAW recording and use an external recorder for RAW for the Pocket V2. Could the Video Assist do RAW recording with a FW update? Probably the SD card won't handle the data.

    The fun part is that BMD has now taken to NOT talking about new cameras until they are actually shipping.

    If we're serious about this guessing game then a nice betting pool would be in order. $25 ante at least... let's make this fun AND clear out the suckers.
    Cameras: Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Blackmagic Pocket Camera (x2), Panasonic GH2 (x2), Sony RX100 ii, Canon 6D, Canon T2i,
    Mics: Sennheiser, AKG, Shure, Sanken, Audio-Technica, Audix
    Lights: Every Chinese clone you can imagine

    An interesting way of clearing out the noise. Informed speculation is far more valuable than WAGs.

    People still clamoring for a 60p pocket camera in 2018? Hilarious.

    Get a GH5 and learn resolve.

    Except that I want the sensor to be S16mm, shoot RAW and have BMD’s colour science. So yeah, still clamoring for a new version of the Pocket.

    Darren, the so,Union you want is at hand. I feel the same way, so I got the Micro a Cinema Camera, 108060p, S16 sensor, so my S16 lenses will work. The Micro also has a better video processor (hence 60p) and a faster sensor readout, less RS artifacts and better controlled moire’. The next BM Pocket style Camera is going to be at least a 4K Camera (per BM last year), no more HD cameras.
    Cheers.
