The German site Slashcam.de (Thanks guys!) interviewed Mr. Stuart Ashton from Blackmagic Team. Watch from minute 1.30 for the Pocket camera news. He says the “Black Dots” issue has been fixed with the new firmware update. And the “Blooming” issue affects only a small stock of cameras. This will be fixed by Blackmagic with a recalibration (you have to send them the camera).
The Pocket Cinema Camera shipments are slow and according to BHphoto (Click here) you will have to wait 2-4 months(!) if you order the camera now.
UPDATE: Blackmagic contacted us to say that “the rumor about a 4K camera with an active MFT mount is inaccurate“. It’s a 2,5K camera with active mount.
P.S.: Blackmagic Pocket Cinema preorders in USA at Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and in Germany at Technikdirekt, in France at pbs-video. In Sweden at macoteket, scandinavianphoto, protel.jetshop, webhallen.
