    I know alot of factors go into this - but I have the opportunity to switch my BM Cinema Camera 2.5 for the new BM Pocket 4K - my Cinema Camera is still in great shape.
    In general would you trade?
    Thanks

    What do BMCC 2.5K cameras sell for? What do BMPCC 4K cameras sell for? Do some math. There's your answer.

    It is a math problem... not a cinema problem.

    Well as i said "In general' the problem is I have 2 great new lens for the cinema camera and SSD cards, etc. I make indie narrative films and even now I'm not shooting raw2.5k but pro res HQ.
    So it's a matter of getting the new Pocket 4k ( it came in stock - I ordered a long time ago) - I do own a panny 12-35 for it. But I guess only I can answer if I will be using the 4k. Anyway - thanks for everyones replies.

    No.

    And by "No" I mean "Yes".

    If you own a Cinema 2.5K then I wouldn't say that you "have to" upgrade. But if you have the opportunity to do a straight swap - take it.
    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
