I hope to use this lens to so quick point and shoot videos, very run and gun stuff. If I carry this camera in my pocket it will be with the lens mounted on the body. I think I now have everything I require of this camera. The only thing I might still buy is extra storage cards. The recommended 64GB SDXC cards will store only 37 minutes of the very large RAW video files. I got 4 cards in my earlier purchase, 6 or 8 cards might be a better number, heck maybe 10 cards would be best.
I need to make sure I have enough battery power and enough card storage whenever I take the Blackmagic pocket out to shoot. I should have plenty of battery power as each camera I recently bought has an adapted large battery attached to its rig. I think those larger batteries allow about 6 hours shooting per charge. I also have 2 small chargers and 13 small batteries available as backups. That should be more than enough power to cover all of my daily shooting needs.
Update* I bought 2-95MB-S-64GB-SanDisk-Extreme-Pro-SDXC-Class10-U3-SD-Cards. These cards were listed as REFURBISHED and sold for only $20 a piece, NEW cards sell for $37-42. Will see how these REFURB cards work in the Blackmagic cameras, I can always use them in my other devices if they do not meet the BMPPC needs. If they work well I will probably pick up another 2 in this price range. You can never have enough storage cards and batteries.
Update** Also picked up a storage card purse for my SD and CF cards. The various cards I need are expensive and easy to lose, having somewhere safe and durable to store them is a must. I cannot afford to lose them in the garbage dump, I would never find them again. One nice feature of the card purse I bought is that it has a belt/clip to attach everything safely to my camera bag.
