    The feature I like most from the Pocket 6k is that it can do 120 fps at 2.8k. I would like that option with the Pocket 4k in future FW update.

    Does it include the Braw test app for Windows?

Speed booster would do true full frame. MFT can adapt to EF and PL. I get EF native for those guys but for a cinema camera a universal shallow mount would be much ore useful.

    Since I can't afford to get this one right away, I hope they'll see the light and make that option available down the line.
    I hope zcam will still do a m4/3 mount on the s6. All the blog pages show it but their spec page it is not showing it as an option.

    Isn’t it a bit nuts to have a native m43 Mount on a sensor that isn’t m43 ? I can’t wait for the pages and pages of screaming threads about native m43 lenses not working on the p6k camera.

    To have m4/3 simply as an interchange mount isn’t the answer.

    Maybe making their own universal mount would be.

    I’m disappointed it doesn’t have PL as that’s an option I would use.

    interchange mount would be better. I have no idea what that would do to the cost or production issues. Just a simplistic solution for many lens options. Having invested in the fujinon zooms. It would have been a great camera to pair them with.

    Its disappointing that the Pocket 6k has no locking EF mount. At least with Metabones SB there is an option for a Cine version that has locking EF.

    The lack of PL mount really disappointed me too, as it kills the opportunity to use a pocket 6K as a B Cam or small gimbal cam and share the same lens kit with the A Cam. I'm guessing we're gonna see an Ursa Mini 6k with interchangeable mount sooner than later though, but would still love to see them do a PL mount pocket like they did with the original 4K PC.

    Maybe an mft version could be a special order item? You have to sign a waiver acknowledging the electronic lenses only cover a 4k mft portion, but it is really no different than Sony handles crop sensor zoom lenses on full frame e mount body. E mount was originally only a crop sensor format, but it evolved.

    Yes it is a niche market but the Fujinon zooms would be an awesome pairing, most of the Veydras for those that have them will cover as well. And of course adaption to Pl although I'm sure in time a small run of PL cameras would happen.

    It's not like they would have to engineer a new platform like when the original cinema camera came out, they already have a fully functional mft body.

    Feature request for both pocket 4k and 6K cameras:

    full sensor scaled 4K and 2k Prores 4444

    Dunno if the FPGAs have the horsepower, but if they did, I would love Prores4444 as clients like it.

    My excitement is rock hard now for an Ursa Mini Pro 6K and an Ursa Mini Pro 8KFF if that is what we may possibly be able to suppose could be coming down the pipeline...

    keep everything about the UMP form Factor and built in NDs, interchangeable mounts etc the same - just give us some new sensor flavors. Absolutely loving the 4.6K G2 - one of the most sensible to use cameras in 2019.
