I would guess at this point anything not coming from Blackmagic is clickbait fakes. Preorders have undoubtedly gobbled up the first few months of production, perhaps longer. They're going to sell them as fast as they can crank them out for awhile. The P4k certainly doesn't need a blogger junket like the EOS-R to convince people to buy, it looks flat out amazing.

The video taken at the Seoul Zoo wasn't uploaded by BMD but was confirmed legitimate by BMD and the person who filmed it took a picture of the Pocket 4K setup that they used.

That is the assumption but why no mention in the specs and why the low data rates in the specs?

They aren't low, those are the standard bit rates of ProRes at those resolutions and frame rates. The bit rates are all listed in megabytes per second not megabits. I think they didn't specify because I guess ProRes is usually at least 10-bit and probably because no Blackmagic camera has ever recorded in 8-bit so they may have wrongfully assumed that everyone knew already.

I'm keen to know if the Ronin S can control the focus of the P4K. Does anyone know? 

I love the proof of authenticity at the end of that clip, hilarious... but what about this? Tried too hard to rescue the sky in post?

Again, use the P4K with vintage lenses & it shines!

Low light was amazing & I wouldn't worry too much about the sun - the choice was made to see her & blow the sun. You've gotta remember it's the brightest thing you'll ever film & there will always have to be a pay off. There's also nothing wrong with crushing blacks or blowing highlights - it's a modern malady that tries to enforce that you can't do this.
