Recently there have been A LOT of sales on very popular cameras such as the Canon 7D (1,500 to 1000), FS100 (now 2,500), and the very popular Blackmagic Pocket Camera (1000 to 500). This very odd; Canon, Sony, Blackmagic. All of the main camera manufactures. It could be a response to the new GH4 but these were the top selling cameras. Especially the Pocket Camera which was basically the best selling camera on B&H for months. Perhaps it may have something to do with Canons rumored release of the 7D mkII. But Unless the 7D mkII has Raw video, It may impact Blackmagic very little. So maybe Blackmagic is also planning a new camera (nothing new). But that was one of the reasons I decided to NOT buy a Pocket Camera. The Decision for Blackmagic to lower the cost of the Pocket didn't make any sense to me. This may sound like a conspiracy but I thinking, hoping Canon has something up their sleeves. Otherwise they may even fall behind even JVC.
