Blackmagic pocket camera delayed? [Update: NO!]

blackmagic-design-pocket-camera-cinemadngYesterday we published a video made by Dan Chung from newsshooter.com at Broadcast Asia 2013. In the video, Richard Lim of Blackmagic design is very convinced that the pocket cinema camera “will arrive as previously estimated during July 2013”.

If you head to B&H you will see that the expected availability is set to August 25th 2013 there.

[Update:] Blackmagic Design gave us an official response that made clear their shipping estimate is actually accurate and they’re still expecting July:
Based on current information we are still expecting to ship in July.

We also got an official response from B&H. It is a typo mistake on their website. Camera will be available as of July 25th

The Pocket camera looks amazing. TNFO has an interview with Blackmagic with updates on the release dates for the cameras and Resolve 10.

Hey 550d bashers…7d, 60d, t3i etc …same sensor. So I guess those cameras are “terrible” too?! I bet Vincent or Philip could make a better video with a 550d than any of you with a Red. It’s not the paint brush its the painter. Don’t forget that second to the 5dmkii the 550d was one of the most anticipated camera release of its time. There wasn’t a camera in its price range even close and I am talking video. Yeah it’s older now and there is new stuff…doesn’t mean it’s bad.

Bmdd pocket is way pass family video, 550D is just good a still camera and passable video quality. its a divide between a pro and amateur class “FILMING” equipment.

This probably just means that B&H has so many pre-orders that it won’t be able to fulfill new orders until August…

Why not? It’s raw, it’s 1080p, it’s got 13 stops of DR…

Yes actually, the pocket camera would be great for family videos, kind of a strange to use a professional camera for home videos but it would work. Sadly your 550D isn’t even worthy to shoot family videos on with its super limited ISO range, even in raw. Easily one of the worst cameras for noise in the past 5 years, and with considerably less dynamic range than even most DSLRs, I wouldn’t consider your 550d for any shoot, even for family videos.

As far as I know, the ML 14 bit raw hack has yet to be successfully used on a 550d at 1920×1080 24 fps
