The price drop is very aggressive. Yes the Pocket 6K has some limitations but for $1995 it's very good deal. A couple of these with the ATEM Mini Pro and you could have a powerful live switching streaming setup.

Thats true, its the second time with blackmagic for me. I got resolve when it was 999$ and then it dropped price to 300$ several weeks later. But DJI is def not better, everything I buy from them loses their worth almost instantly. 
My canon stuff held up its worth several years though.

or even better 3x BMPCC4K for the same price! In live streaming having a deeper DOF at the same light level can be quite useful! 😉

Don't get me started on even updating DJI drones. A surefire way for them to stop working right!

When I bought my second BMPCC4K, it was predicated on the fact that I could equip it with a new lens, monitor, cage etc for not much more than a BMPCC6K and that's pretty much what I achieved. I think I spent about AU$200 more for the entire rig vs just a body (and then I would have needed lenses as well). Remaining compatible with my first BMPCC4K, lenses and accessories wasn't a bad idea either.

    • I have an NP-F battery plate on top of my BMPCC4K cage and with an NP-F970 equivalent battery (IDX) and a genuine Canon LP-E6N battery inside, I get four hours of continuous 4K DCI recording at 5:1 compression. The NP-F option is way lighter than a V-lock and you can use various size NP-F batteries to suit the occasion, plus it gives you hot swapping capability. I would think you could do the same with a BMPCC6K. The benefit of my setup is that I can put the entire rig, cage, monitor and all on a Crane 3s gimbal (with focus and zoom motors) and it works perfectly.
    • The Sony Z90 looks solid, particularly with the xlr mic inputs.  I should have mentioned that variable frame rates to include slo mo is also a preference.  Thus the BMPCC6K with up to 50 fps 6144 x 3456 video looks nice and HD up to 120 fps.  With a v-mount battery it seems to get just shy of 4hrs run time.  If it can take the heat that looks like a good option.  I also like the CFast slot. Then I also see the Z CAM E2-S6 Super 35 6K Cinema Camera which shoots up to 6K at up to 60 fps, DCI 4K up to 75 fps, 1080p up to 120 fps.  Not sure how it performs in 40+C.
    • I'm right here in the heart of Tokyo.  Nice to be here!
    • I've used my BMPCC4K continuously in 40+C Australian summer heat without any overheating issues. I suspect that the BMPCC6K would be just as capable. Both are very reasonably priced cinema cameras that produce fantastic results (in capable hands, mine are still all thumbs). The MFT format has it's advantages, as you can use just about any lens ever produced (using an appropriate adapter) and, with speedboosters, you can get almost a full frame look.
    • It you’re working in extreme conditions, I’d perhaps consider something like a Sony Z90 or similar. Then keep your Nikon for beauty shots when the environment is better.
