    And this is why I hate 4K. Completely invisible in most situations, yet can lead to missing out on things that actually matter.

    Well if you look at the A7s 1080p vs the 4k it is a massive upgrade to my eyes

    I preordered the BMCC the day it was announced. In my opinion it will give you the best image you can buy up until you run into Scarlet territory, and even then it gives that camera a run for its money in pure image quality. It's in the same league and only costs $2k. For the next camera, all they have to do is fill in the obvious gaps and not screw up the image.

    -KEEP THE IMAGE THE SAME AS THE 2.5k BMCC
    -keep the DR 13 stops or go higher
    -better ergonomics
    -active m43 mount
    -better screen and possibly an EVF
    -at least 48 fps
    -faster sensor readout to minimize rolling shutter*
    -custom picture profiles
    -better light sensitivity (at least 6400 ISO clean)
    -OLPF (removable is better)
    -affordable media (read: not CFast. SSD is great.)
    -waveform
    -HDMI in addition to the SDI
    -ability to record in log and send a picture profile out through sdi/hdmi

    *I know a global shutter would be better, but if you look at the 4k cameras they took a serious hit in light sensitivity and a less serious, but noticeable hit to DR. For those reasons I'd rather just have a faster sensor readout to compensate. It's why I prefer the 2.5k to the 4k.

    The new meme seems to be those shoulder mount units like the Cion and FS7 so my guess is something along that line.

    4K is passe. I hope Black Magic can come with a 16K camera so that I can plant it like a cctv and then pick and choose all kinds of angles.

    A BMPC 4k camera, with BMCC dynamic range, built in NDs, lots of manual controls or customizable hard buttons, an FE mount, 2 xlrs, an oled sunlight readable screen, and weather sealing.
