Today at the NAB convention, Black Magic Design unveiled the recently teased successor to their pocket cinema camera.  Other than the dslr form factor, which makes handheld documentary production a challenge, it seems to have overcome all of the criticisms and shortcomings of its predecessor.

The camera maintains the micro 4/3 lens mount, uses a variety of modern codecs (including ProRes and raw), records to internal cards or external USB-C drives, has various power options, has a mini XLR audio input.  It has 3D LUTs and HDR capability, with 13 stops of dynamic range.  HDMI monitoring – or a clean output, sans overlays.  And a list price of $1295!

Oh, and it comes with Davinci Resolve Studio.
