Sorry for the delay. Two field video shoots and a corporate event coverage photo gig in the last 10 days.

On the gig mentioned in my original post, I was using an Atomos Inferno w/7" screen to do the ProResRAW capture..
So the rig was a C-300 tethered to that via 3/6/12GHDI
I went with a top mount wooden camera plate rig since that was less weight than all the cages I looked at.

The Atomos has a very well designed sunshade system that lets you truly see your picture, even in very bright sunlight (which we have a lot of in California.) but it was still as heavy as a Betacam and far less ergonomic IMO.

So basically, until we get camera that record AND monitors ProRes RAW internally (hopefully with full Rec2020 HDR monitoring so you can see what you're actually shooting) the rigs are pretty unwieldy.

Even the new BlackMagic PocketCamera 6k is bigger than I expected in form-factor.

I suppose "Pocket" in this case must refers to 90's cargo shorts?

Anyway, shooting it was NOT a comfortable "run and gun" experience for me. Not if you want to be able to judge what you're shooting as you record it.

Just my initial impressions.
