    There are some things I am not excited for. 1SD Card slot, there is a crop on the 4K, but am curious to test it out!

    If I were a wedding photographer or even an event photographer I'd be worried about the single card slot. But for me I'm not a photographer at all. All I care about is motion picture. IF Blackmagic can ship the Pocket 4k, that'll be the cameras for me. I'm ready to move on from mirroless cameras.

    If I bought a Canon right now it'd be a used C100 cinema camera. But for the same price Blackmagic is offering the Pocket 4k, and I like M43 anyway because it's much like the old 16mm film.

    I record a lot of video, and multiple cards can save your life! haha

    No doubt. The real question is given how cheap cards are these days, why didn't they add a second slot? That's what I don't understand.

    Options, one for video, one for stills :) Redundancy, sometimes cards fail, etc A LOT of reasons to do it, and they have done it before! :)

    Yeah, I've had a card fail on my MP3 recorder. Couldn't figure out what it was until I realized the card was shot. Backups and redundancy is a must even for one-man "bands."
