Why would you even compare a professional cinema camera to a pocket $1k camera?

Greeks do agree here!

Honestly, bringing the P4k into the same conversation with the C200 says more for Canon than BM, and it is no good.

C200 is still in no man's land, and it costs 9000euros here. BM is exhibiting how a enthousiast's/hobbyist camera is done, while Canon how a pro camera isn't..

Edit: GH5S is the best cheap Panasonic video camera in my opinion. I am not sure that the comparison is bad for the P4K.

I thought the concert footage above looked good as well.  In the right hands the results are very nice.

I agree with comment that the ProAV video looked like video (due highlight handling).

I am hoping that when Blackmagic released the BRAW firmware update, the image will improve, like the image improved with USRA Mini Pro.

At this point I have not seen the same mojo that I was impressed with in first demo video I saw of the OG pocket - The One.  Warning: For those who have not seen it before there is one part that shows some nudity on the cover of a magazine, which may not be appropriate if you watch it in your place of work etc...

Yeah the original Pocket camera is a Very special camera. I see little of it in this new one. but time will tell. I don't think other than some 9000 dollar camera anything can beat the original one. They are that good if you have the skill. And in reality it wasn't that hard to do. There is LOTS of good stuff from them on the web.

Maybe it is implied, but I think the Blackmagic Cinema Camera 2.5k has equally good mojo and beats the OG Pocket in dynamic range, field of view and resolution and used, is less than the Pocket 4k.

I always thought the sensor was the same, and so was the dynamic range. The 2,5K was very good for getting a clean full HD with a OLPF filter. The sensor was 15.8mm wide, 3mm less than the Pocket 4K.

Looks good to me. 
(one scene showed some aliasing though)

 

Very nice.

That's more like it!

Where did you see the aliasing?

Looks a bit sharpened and reduced in noise to me.
Apart from that and thanks to the great compositions and color work it's one of my favorite clips yet.

You can see aliasing at the 0:41-0:42 mark at the railing. Though in comparison to the BMCC or even original pocket it's absolutely minimal and usable.
