  1. The 6K is at a reasonable price in Aussie now https://www.videopro.com.au/p-12714-blackmagic-design-pocket-cinema-camera-6k-canon-ef-cinecampochdef6k.aspx $AU 3455 which is about £1783/€2039 less the tax back as a tourist and it comes out at £1620 Pity about the 14 days quarantine though!
  2. My local supplier is currently quoting £2099 for the 6K with a free carry case. https://www.ukdigital.co.uk/blackmagic-pocket-cinema-camera-6k.html same free case offer on the 4K as well. Looks like 5 year warranty on the 6K and 4K is included also.
  3. For what it is worth https://bps-tv.co.uk/blackmagic-design-pocket-cinema-camera-6k.html is showing as being in stock as is the 4K.
  4. The thumb drive mentioned on the P-V forum a few weeks ago is from my quick tests showing early signs of being a possible external media at a reasonable price. The 256Gb is £59 approx. 256Gb Thumb Drive Aliexpress First when plugged into the camera it is able to be formatted in exfat or osx so that is a head start on nvme drives. The drive will need a suitable OTG usb C cable to be of practical use and I have currently got one on order to try. Initial results C4K lossless 24fps 360 shutter were full card recording without dropped frames. It did however drop frames once I changed to 60/24 at around 7 seconds. Dropping down to C4K 3:1 resulted in around 18 minutes recording but the battery died at this point. Hopefully I wil have time to do some real testing at weekend. A very short OTG cable could easily fasten to the side of a cage and drives swap would be easy without touching the on camera port. The Drive has an led that flashes when recording to.
  5. Ordered with CVP almost as soon as it was online ( April 9th ) Unable to tell me how far I am down the pecking order or any further information.
  6. Updated a Dell laptop and ran into the "Something Happened" Bug. This was fixed by setting my "locale" to USA and a reboot even though in UK and using an Australian Dell. The other was a desktop which went flawlessly updating from Developer version 10130 using the Media creation tool. The only continuing issue is Firefox randomly crashing but main software such as Sony Vegas is solid.
  7. 2 batteries came with my A7S and I purchased a further 2 aftermarket batteries at $24 apiece.. For an intensive day's shooting I would be happier with 6-8 though. Sd cards as previously mentioned. Mine came with a Metabones Sony-Canon as a freebie which I am using with a Canon 70-20mm L series in addition to the kit SEL2870 (bought at a different time). At the end of the day it is how much weight you want to carry about.
  8. $2299AU or approx £1255 ( £1141 after gst refund) at a local camera shop in Perth Australia. http://gerrygibbscamerawarehouse.com.au/sony-alpha-a7s-mirrorless-camera?cPath=405_865 Also a free lens adapter at $299AU via redemption. Picked up my GH4 from there a few weeks ago with the 12-35mm panny lens for $2350AU or £1170 after gst refund. Difference in price would pay the air ticket to collect!! Edit: The lens adapters are Metabones in Canon EF/ Nikon/Leica flavours or a Sony A mount http://www.sony.com.au/microsite/a7redemption/
  9. Black Magic website has changed from " Ships July" to "Buy Now" so time will tell when cameras actually ship.
  10. I have just received a revised delivery estimate from Videoguys Australia for August 31st for the Black Magic Pocket camera. If it is delivered sooner then it is a bonus. At least it gives me time to source a few extra lenses!
