    Well... I tried to give my wife a 4 course meal. I know it tasted great, because I cooked it. If she didn't like it, its because her tastebuds are wrong.

    I need too much time to find topic about BMMCC, so sorry for posting here, but maybe it could be useful as another example of what BM cameras and especially BMMCC are capable for, or as comparison with Pocket 4k.

    Definitely some of the best P4K footage I’ve seen. Really quite perfect. Good find.

    Why does every new camera that is released inevitably have a “... vs Alexa” video, anyway?
    I mean, if any of these cameras were as good as an Alexa, then Roger Deakins would surely buy them and use them in their Hollywood films. Weirdly enough, I have heard, somewhere, that a lot of Hollywood DPs own Fuji cameras as their personal camera...
    But seriously, it’s not the end of the world if your sub-2000 dollar camera isn’t as good as an Alexa. Most people believe the best Red doesn’t look as good as an Alexa, so it’s highly unlikely that a $1300 camera will either.
    Stop watching and reposting these stupid comparisons and maybe they’ll stop making them.
    With that being said, the OG Pocket was often referred to as a Baby Alexa, maybe the P4K will earn that moniker as well one day, but until then, what’s the harm in mentioning a flaw or two? And a strength or two?
    Cell phones are the great equalizer and how most people will watch most of your videos, so if a camera’s image looks noticeably better on a cell phone screen, I find, there’s usually something to it. YMMV.

    Exactly.  I got some MD and Canon lenses especially the Tokina ATX Pro 28-70mm.  I'll be spotting for an adapter for the X-T3 until then.

    jbCinC_12 reacted to amanieux in Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K gets BRAW in extensive FFPGA hardware update delivered via software   
    is bRAW 3:1 lossless ? how effcient is braw compared to other lossy codecs ? for example braw 12:1 (32MB/s)  it is about 2x smaller than  h265 4:2:0 10 bit 400mbits found in xt3 but has it better image quality ?  i know it is hard to compare a distribution codec to a acquisition codec but it is fair to compare them as xt3 is using h265 as an acquisition codec to grade in post and xt3 is the same price as bmpcc4k so who made the best compromise for best gradable footage vs smaller file size (fuji or bm) ? i have a hard time believing the few blackmagic design engineers developing braw over 2 years can come close to the efficiency of open standard codecs such as h265 that come from the work of thousands of engineers over decades .

    I might be mistaken, but to me this little video has that OG pocket mojo people are looking for. (aside from the slow mo)

    Picked up the Fuji X-T3. Bribed my daughter with Maccas to model for a few minutes. No face or eye detect because i was rushing and just didn't think about it. You will see a few spots where it loses focus for a split second but if i had face tracking on at least i'm sure it would have been fine.
    Hopefully i uploaded the clip correctly.

    Do you have a picture of your rig with the Ninja V? Without first hand knowledge, it seems if you’re going to go with the added size and cost of a Ninja V on the X-T3, you may as well just get a P4K.

    I still got my original Pocket, and still love it for what it is.  Not to go OT, but I may plan on getting the fujifilm x-t3 for the S35 vid feel, and use my OG as a B-cam or something for street shots or narrative work when the time comes.  I been hoping for something big w/ P4K, but I dunno.  I'm still keeping my trusted baby with me.

    I'd heard that it exists but I've never watched it or heard what it's about. 
    The entire Jussie Smollet case is extremely frustrating. Hate crimes against African Americans and the LGBT communities are on the rise, and yet this greedy person tried to use that to get fame and a raise? All he did was hurt those communities, given people ammunition to pretend that hate crimes aren't happening, and distracted the media from more important stories, like the Coast Guard official arrested planning terrorist attacks and assassinations against liberal people and candidates.

    Fujifilm X-T3 crop factor:
    Sensor diagonal = 28.21 mm 
    Crop factor =  43.27 : 28.21= 1.53
    This is the true form factor.

    I haven't been successful with Danne's built - for I don't know exactly what I'm doing.  Who knew that Canon's EOS-M is right up there with the big boys.

    It's the build I posted before (17th January). 3x3 is continuos with 14bit lossless. 1x3 only Works fine with 10bits But it depends on the shot.

    Intriguing, @Andrew Reid.. quite intriguing.  I too, am interested.
    @mercer, I felt the same way.  I haven't play/test it in a while - the camera was quite limiting until I snagged the Panny G7.  I'm revving the batteries and checking this one out.

    The EOS-M is the camera that just keeps on giving. It was my first foray into ML Raw and I failed miserably with it. Soon after I tried my hand with the 50D and thought hmm. With the 5D3, I am a full convert and won’t even think of buying another camera until I see what happens with the 5D4 developments.
    However, somewhere in the back of my closet, I still have my EOS-M, a few batteries and a slew of SD cards just waiting to be used. This could be a fun way to cure some Mid-Winter Blues. I look forward to your update, Andrew.
    On another note, I almost bought your 5D Mark III 3.5K Raw guide a couple of hours ago, but I don’t know if I can go without a clean LiveView. Has there been any updates on that front?

    I agree.  $2000+ for the camera, when you can actually (pre-)order it for $800 less?  Might as well get a Canon C100 or the Ursa and be done with it.  Like some others, not in no rush to get it.  Wait until all pre-orders are done for it to sell solid.  The camera itself is looking good so far.

    Not gonna wait for a perfect cam, just gonna wait until next year to get a P4K. Dont want to pay shipping to ship back a defective one to Blackmagic then pay again to ship it back to me.

    - Battery getting stuck - 
     
    - Battery doors suddenly opening (also happens to a coworker's P4K) - 
     
    - red clipping - there's a workaround with resolve though 
    - footage turning green 
     
    I mean if P4K owners say it's perfect then it's perfect, and that these problems are isolated cases. In my opinion I'm gonna wait it out.
