    Perhaps we should be thinking this form factor is a better bet than a phone

    The DJI Pocket 2 is a gimbal, HDR, slo mo 4k camera system with radio mic like the RodeGo. Smaller than a phone and really a better form factor than a phone. Plus you can plug a phone into it to use the phone as a screen. This makes so much more sense than a phone camera for me

    I have not been asked for Dolby at this point Tim but I’m very interested in ProRAW myself. So much of my work is fast turn around to air and at the top of the list is really volume. They want a bunch of shots to choose from. I agree with your point on news coverage with the phone though. I’m in St Louis and not too far from Ferguson where people in the neighborhood were recording the Mike Brown scene before News Pros could arrive and get tripods set up. It marked the first real divide in how people got their news from an event like this. Citizens shot the scene and went right to social media where many people watched and then others watched traditional news which was very different and lacking. Many were confused about how people could come away with so vastly different views, but as a tech person, a news and production person, an African American that grew up here, I knew what was different. Those phones. That’s where I really see this going and taking off. You can’t get away with lying about an event anymore. There are 15 or more people recording with high quality cameras and 15 different angles. Citizen Journalism.

    Dolby Vision as standard seems like an intriguing proposition, as until now it has been a very expensive HDR deliverable via DaVinci Resolve. Are we going to see Dolby exports in FCPX soon….??

    As for the camera – yes it looks lovely, as 99% of other cameras will do in Emmanuel Lubezki’s hands; but the big question is how those images stand up to manipulation and grading that will be required for higher end outputs; also – much of the character of an image is derived from its lens and its relationship with the sensor and its colour space…. this isn’t going to be a changeable option in a meaningful way so its an interesting topic to delve into.

    It could be the best b-roll camera available though….
