Larry Jordan: Now tell me about the Pocket Camera. You've got to pick an easier name.

Dan May: We like to have multiple Pocket Cinema Camera 4ks that delineate and confuse at the same time. It's a great camera. It's all the things that we've heard over the years as we've been developing cameras. Obviously, it is a successor to the pocket camera, so it's larger than the pocket camera.

LJ: It's 4K; it's got to be larger.

DM: It's got to be. One of the big things everyone said was we should make a 4K version. You have to realize it's going to be a bigger chassis because of a heat, the size of the sensor. It's a 4/3 size sensor, so it's larger than the sensor size of the original pocket camera. But we want to do all the things that we had never been able to do like being able to take still photos and be able to store those into its own folder, being able to have HDMI, being able to have two recording slots. It's got CFast card slot as well as UHD SD card slot, so it can actually do fill up one, go to the other or, if I want to use cheaper or more expensive media, we also have a USB-C on there, so we can record directly off to a flash drive if we want to do long format recording.
