I recently had the chance to play with a BlackMagic Design Micro Cinema Camera over at the WPPI show about a week ago. The dynamic range looked better than from the Pocket Cinema Camera, but the addition of 60fps and now powered by Canon LP-E6 batteries is what really sold me. You'll definitely need some type of screen to work with it, but I already own the BlackMagic Design Video Assist (BMVA). Here's a couple of images showing the serial cable connections you can use to control this camera remotely (i.e. Drone use) and also the Camera settings available from the Menu of the new BMMCC.

I'm one of those guys who pre-ordered a BlackMagic Design Micro Cinema Camera the moment they were announced at NAB. But after almost a year of waiting, my pre-order still hasn't confirmed to ship. But here's really good news. If you want your Micro Cinema Camera ASAP, I just got confirmation that the DVEStore may have at least a few dozen available today by Tuesday [03.24.16]. They confirmed that they have already set aside for me to ship as soon as it arrives at their warehouse (overnight shipping!). I expect by Wednesday afternoon at the latest.

So if I you're looking to get one ASAP, i'd place your order at DVEStore (here), and then maybe cancel your previous. Their website may still say 'pre-order' but they confirmed their shipment should arrive on Tuesday. I expect these will go fast, and it would suck to have to wait even longer. Hurry and good luck!

    i know, i was asking about the micro cinema, which you posted about here, and the micro studio which has been out for some time. wasn't clear on their differences other than the studio version having 4k capabilities.

    what confused me is you mentioned 4.6k and URSA in your first reply and i dont see any pictures of the URSA.

    so 4k is the only difference?

    @adic - The Micro 'Studio' Camera has 4K but it cannot record to a card. You need an external recorder. And it doesn't offer RAW. NO the Micro Studio Camera does not have the same sensor as URSA. You had me confused as I posted pics of the URSA and Cinema Camera, and the URSA is available in 4K or 4.6K. I did not post anything about the Micro Studio.

    sorry man im confused.. the "Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K" is 4.6k?

    are you saying the micro studio and URSA have the same sensor?

    so the micro studio and the micro cinema only differ in resolution really? they have the same features as far as what you can hook up to them?

    @adic - The 4.6K is a completely different sensor with more dynamic range. The 4K URSA is pretty much the same sensor in the 4K production camera. The 2.7K Cinema Camera was a great sensor, but when they released the 4K sensor it was higher resolution, but not quite the same feel. The new 4.6K sensor is totally different, and I expect better color, and what seems like better low light capabilities, as well as sharper. There's different framerate options too I believe.
