The New Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K!
What do I like about it?
It shoots 4K 60 fps and 120 fps in HD windowed.
The Dynamic range which surpasses that of a DSLR.
It uses Blackmagic Colour Science 4
For storage, it uses both SD UHS-II card and CFast cards but it also has a USB Type-C for external drive recording, software updates and media download as well!
Very Low Light ISO up to 25,600 for HDR images
Audio connections apart from the normal mini jack for mic input and a headphone jack it has a mini XLR analogue switchable between mic with phantom power support and line level (up to +14dBu)!
Codecs. No H.264 like in DSLR but you can record to CinemaDNG RAW, CinemaDNG RAW 3:1, CinemaDNG RAW 4:1, ProRes 422 HQ QuickTime, ProRes 422 QuickTime, ProRes 422 LT QuickTime, ProRes 422 Proxy QuickTime!
The full HD 5" LCD capacitive touchscreen monitor is great although it is fixed! (but the camera has Bluetooth connection so..)
Camera Price $1,295 which makes it very competitive and did I mention you will get a free copy of the new DaVinci Resolve Studio worth $299!
( by the way it also shoots photos!)

Will this be the ultimate post production finishing tool?
What does this mean?
Gone is the need for round-tripping between applications between Editing and VFX! the only application in the industry that could do this was Autodesk Smoke! Autodesk Smoke has long been the defacto standard as a finishing tool which incorporated Editing, Color grading, motion graphics, VFX, 3D, and delivery all in one package! In fact, is used by major studios to finish films and episodes of major studios and also comes with a major studio price tag.
DaVinci Resolve has the same array of tools now in one package!
