Rumors have been around for months of a new camera on the horizon, but they seemed to increase substantially in the past few weeks. Many people as well as myself were expecting an 8K camera, while at the same time saying that no one needs 8K. Perhaps Blackmagic agrees with that sentiment. What didn't transpire was a more compact cube type design like those from competitors Z CAM
and others. I personally find this disappointing but not surprising. Blackmagic's camera designs leave a lot to be desired. I find the traditional stills camera shape difficult to use on a gimbal or shoulder rig. While I have placed a pre-order for the 6K Pro, I doubt that it will be a camera that I keep for very long.
UPDATE: I cancelled my pre-order. I just don't have enough interest in this camera to spend $3k for testing. The ND filters are nice, but I really want to see a completely different body design from Blackmagic. A full frame 4-5k resolution camera with a box shape would be ideal.
