    Why is Blackmagic spelling RAW all caps? Don't they read EOSHD?

    Andrew, I'd like to thank you for the great work on the guide.
    It's very comprehensive and straightforward.
    However, I too think it lacked a bit on the grading side of things. Although I do understand and agree with your reasoning for not delving too deep in the issue on the guide, my feeling is, since you praised the gradability for the camera so much on your preliminary reviews and the main one, it'd be very nice to have more in depth notion on how to deal with the h.264 coming out of this camera specifically. Your experience both in grading and in dealing with this camera would be very welcome, and something not very easy to find elsewhere.
    I like EvilMonkey's idea of a blog post (or a series of posts) breaking out various situations and workflows. I'm sure you already have enough material to show us. Let alone the new stuff you'll be learning in the coming months.
    Again, thank you, and keep up the great work!
    Cheers!

    I think the big secret is a Metabones Speed Booster that gives the GH4 hybrid tea/coffee making features.

    It would be great if someone with access to a Canon 1D C tested this.

    Out of curiosity I made an ultra quick search for prices. In case anyone is interested, here's the chart. Please be aware that this can't be trusted blindly because I'm far from expert.

    Maybe it'd be a good idea to put all of these cameras in one place, but giving them grades for specific characteristics for video that we don't find easily on other sites, like the guys over at The Verge do when they review something.
    So, in one post we'd have all of these cameras like this for example:
     
    5DIII
    DR - 9/10
    Resolution - 7/10
    Low light - 10/10
    Ergonomy - 7/10
    Codec - 5/10
    Battery life - 8/10
    Price - 8/10
    Etc
     
    GH3
    DR - 8/10
    Resolution - 10/10
    Low light - 8/10
    Ergonomy - 7/10
    Codec - 7/10
    Battery life - 8/10
    Price - 9/10
    Etc
     
    On each camera you could disclose your reasoning and preference bias and let people know why you think said camera has better bang for buck, for example.
    And then let the readers decide what is the ranking based on their specific preference and needs/budget.
    As more cameras come out, we would get a monthly update with new posts.
     
    I think you've earned a very good reputation with all your work on this site. And I believe that having this kind of resource would turn out to be a very welcome reference, especially for beginners.

    Nope you are making it two times too scary :) . It's about 3.5MB and around 4.4GB per minute. Still yikes of course though.

    It's funny seeing people talking about Canon freaking out about this. For me it's obvious they saw it coming. The folks at Magic Lantern have been hacking the Canon cameras for years now. And then, out of the blue, they find a "hidden" feature in the camera left there by "accident" because Canon would never imagine anyone would find it?
    This is the only way Canon would evolve the specs on their cameras. Us, the low budget enthusiasts will buy tons of cameras, the pros wont compromise on reliability and will continue buying the expensive toys. Everybody will continue buying Canon glass. Anyone daring trying to undercut them will suffer, just like Black Magic. It's a win win win for Canon.
    Kuddos to the ML guys for making this happen. You guys are so awesome that Canon was counting on you to do this. I'll be donating and hopping this comes to the cheaper models as well. I'd sell my 60D and get a 7D or 5D2 in a heart beat. Even though I'd miss the rotating screen. :)

    A super 35mm raw camera for under $600? Where do I sign up?
    Could be great once they get their new APS-C sensor out there.
     
    Panny need to sacrifice their pro division (as if it was making them money, heh) and put this stuff in as an official feature in GH5 (or GH3 via new firmware) or else it's over for M43 for filmmaking.

    Blackmagic just exposed (again) the entire camera industry. This is what Panasonic should have done to beat Canon and Sony, but didn't even bother to try.
    I hope they can manage demand better this time around. We need them to.
     
    This is history in the making.
    I'll buy one when it's available. I can wait.
