    • For me if it delivers RAW, S35, ND's, prores, 4K 60P in a more professional form factor its a win. Anything more like full frame or 4k 120fps or 300fps is all icing on the cake, not a requirement though. If the price goes about $4000 than my interest starts to be lost, especially when you are competing against say the URSA G2 and BRAW or even the Pocket 4k at $1300. You could have two pocket 4k's for $2600, thats hard to beat. 
    • If I had to choose between 6K - S35 variable, or 4K full frame, then I would vote 100% for 6K-S35. More than 1 reasons! For economical reasons a S35 sensor makes far more sense also, Lets see the Z cameras that are more a sensor in a box than a traditional design. The price difference from m43 to S35 and full frame is "huge" and huge. Also, I believe the market here are people buying 1/3,2/3,1" camcorders, anything more will be just heavenly to them and ,maybe, good enough for some of us.
    • I think it will be a simple Upgrade to the Original x1d, The only Problem I see is the Lack of Capture One Support
    • Wouldn't 50i only read half the lines on the sensor for each interlaced frame? If so, that can be done at twice the speed of reading every line.
    • Thanks. If we take 400 ISO as the BMPCC 4k base ISO, the revised numbers put base ISO over (highlight dynamic range) at +5.5. That's just behind the newer Reds at their base 800 ISO (numbers are unpublished, but similar to UMP 4.6k in practice), URSA Mini Pro 4.6k (+5.8, I think), etc. and just ahead of the C300 Mk I (+5.3). C300 Mk II is +6.3, guessing Varicam and Venice are around +6.5. Alexa is +7.4 to +7.8 depending on model...  Or if you shoot at 640 ISO (+6.1) or 800 ISO (+6.5) then you've got highlight dynamic range competitive with big name cinema cameras. But you can also push other cameras a stop. Apparently Panavision rates the Red at 1600 ISO to get an extra stop. So then it's around +6.5, too, with more resolution. Did braw also improve the highlights on the 4.6k? Couldn't find a manual for that. I agree. The "under" part usually seems exaggerated, especially at high ISO. Canon claims something like 15 stops at 100,000 ISO and it's not even close.  But the original specs on the BMPCC 4k indicate highlight dynamic range close to a 5D Mark III or a GH4 (+4 stops over 18% gray) and the new numbers are closer to high end cinema cameras. Maybe that explains the debate about highlight detail, and if the new numbers are accurate, it's pretty darned good... Of course it also depends on how good the shadows look. I think the F5 and A7S both have +6 over at base, but their shadows are so bad in SLOG 2 you need to overexpose them by a stop. So it's less in practice.  @docmoore Do you know if the revised over/under is only for braw or is that for ProRes, too?
