Hard to buy that. There are barely any M43 sensors on the market. Is there really another out there with the same oversized dimensions and dual ISO that we somehow haven't heard about?

Some could say the same is true about salespeople as well....

I'm not sure if the lack of adjustable screen is due to it being a 'cinema' camera where the world is expected to bend around the camera instead of the other way around, or if it was a size or cost measure, but the idea of it being a 'cinema' thing fits with the great attention and effort towards image specs and (relative) lack of effort towards ergonomics for hand-holding.

I bet the reason is : BOTH! 

Both is due to their cinema camera world view, and for cost cutting measures.

Here it is ! I just picked it up at Photocineshop in Paris :astonished::love::tounge: I was the first in queue, I called them monday, they told me they expected it mid october. But I received a call today telling me it's here so... They received only 3 cameras. They ordered 75 and have 60 in queue. Funny story, the guy at the counter told me the boss was mad at him because the boss wanted to keep the first ones for rent (it's also a big rental company) and not fulfilling the first orders ! I think I have the first retail version in France ( I know it's a lame sentence !)

 

Oh that is funny!

But I bet he could have made a killing in rentals with the camera out every single day for a month straight if it is the first camera in the entire country available for rental.

how much is it a speed booster (or compatible brand) for this camera? thx

It depends really? Do you want to use manual lenses? If so, go for a viltrox or a lens turbo? They are around a 1/3 the price of a metabones! If you want to have electronic control then a metabones speedbooster is probably your best bet.

I own some canon lenses, 14, 35 and 50mm already. Thinking about going for the 18/35 1.8 in canon mount, is the metabones a good idea ? Or those differents brands could be good as well (and cheaper) ?

Anyone who ordered from B&H heard anything? Also if I call them will they tell me what number in line I am? I got it April 9 right after announcement. 

I haven't heard anything yet from them. I figure they're probably swamped with all sorts of orders since they've been closed for over a week. Hoping to hear from them soon either way.

I spoke with a customer service person from BH Photo and she said that they expect to ship out some of the Pocket 4k orders tomorrow.
