The biggest thing to keep in mind is you are mentioning a $15k camera and a $2k camera for comparison. In the car industry thats like comparing a $20k Kia to a $150k Mercedes fully loaded. Sure, if you want to spend $7.5 times the price go ahead. Its pretty clear which company is rattling the bird cage for cinema camera makers and bringing out competition.

Its companies like BM

It would be more comparable to motorcycle vs car.

Motorcycles are cool and generally cheaper, but the car has all the extra space for occupants and can fit almost any type of trip. (Cars also have worse gas mileage)

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K does bring a lot of value to the table, but even the Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K Pro G2 is overall a better deal as a general purpose Cinema Camera.

Is indie film weekly just ‘tech news’ now? I feel like the camera comparison hysteria should have ended by now. Feels like debating about cameras has very little mileage in actually helping filmmakers to make films.

Just a heads up that there is actually a free Blackmagic bluetooth app that allows for all camera controls and metadata from an iPad or iPhone. There's also a 3rd party app that has similar controls and adds remote focus pulling called "Bluetooth+ for Blackmagic"
