UPDATE: Blackmagic 4K Pocket Cinema camera release date is not 3 September

While Adorama and B&H Photo Video have said they expect availability of the Blackmagic 4K Pocket Cinema camera on 3 September, that is not in fact the camera’s release date.

A representative from Blackmagic has been in touch to say that while the camera will indeed be launched in September, the company has yet to confirm an exact date.

“We’ve asked that both dealers amend to state September only,” according to the rep.
