    Hmmm... Am not convinced this is true. And am not sure what non-destructive means. Everything that watch and read from professional colorists including Juan Melara's video point in the opposite direction. (HLG -> rec709 -> HLG = rec709)
    Let's check Melara's video. He concentrates mainly on dynamic range (Gamma). Whole point of the video can be summarized like this:
    URSA Mini is capable of 15 stops of dynamic range. But it looks you don't get all those 15 stops because BMD gamma is able to hold only 12 stops effectively cutting some of the dynamic range of the camera.
    Later he proposes two methods / solutions:
        1. Play with curves. (But you still play with 12 stops of dynamic range at input)
        2. Choose Gamma=Linear. It looks Linear container(value for Gamma) can hold more stops of dynamic range. And you get full range of 15 stops, which yields better result at the end. 
        At 1.25: "My theory is that BMD 4.6K film curve as a container is actually not able to hold the entire 15 stops of URSA Mini..."
    About color space:
        At 2:20: "Normally I'd recommend to output to the largest color space available and you can use P3 60... To keep things simple I'll choose REC709..."  
    In my understanding he says: Get the widest color space you can. But here for simplicity I choose REC709 (narrower) because my main point in this video is about Gamma (dynamic range). 
    Now if we assume what you say is true, then BMD Gamma should hold all values of URSA Mini dynamic range (15 stops). Why then go to Linear ? It would have been sufficient to choose it in color space transform and it would reveal the whole 15 stops. But that's not what Melara is saying. He's saying exactly the opposite. He is saying that BMD Gamma as container (Gamma value) is limiting dynamic range of URSA Mini sensor. And REC709 gamma has even less stops of dynamic range than BMD gamma ! 
    Now let's go to HLG color space and gamma. As you said there are several approaches / methods to color correct and grade. Let's compare the one that plays with curves, saturation etc. with Color Space Transform.
    When you place a GH5 or Sony A7 III HLG or LOG clip on timeline, Davinci assumes by default that your clip is REC709 color space and gamma. If you don't tell Resolve the color space and gamma your clips were shot it doesn't know and assumes REC709 (same as is your timeline by default). But REC709 color space and gamma are much more limited than REC2020 color space and REC2010 Gamma that HLG clips are. By doing so you effectively destroy the quality of your video. No matter what you do later, curves saturation, LUTs, your starting point is much lower. Yes at the end it's always REC709 but everything so far points that you loose quality when correct conversion was not done because you don't use the full range of colors and dynamic range your camera is capable of.
    That's why they say that color space transform do this transformation non destructively. At least that's my understanding.   But may be wrong and am curious to hear others opinion. 
    If your scene has limited dynamic range you may not see a difference between the two methods. But in extreme scenes with wide dynamic range it does make a difference. Same for colors. Some  color spaces approximate nicely to REC709, others (Sony S.Gammut) don't.  There is no surprise people are complaining about banding, weird colors and so on. Most of those problems could be resolved with Color Space Transform even for 8bit codecs footage. 
    Second problem with using curves, saturation etc. is that this method is not consistent from clip to clip, between different lighting, etc. And involves a lot more work to get good results. At least that's my experience. Have to tune white, black point for each clip individually, then saturation etc. Change one color, another one goes off. Can't apply all settings from one clip to all especially when shooting outdoor in available light and different lighting conditions. It's a lot of work. Just read how much work was put to create Leeming LUTs, how much shots had to analyzed, etc. 
    With Color Space Transform it takes me 3 to 5 min to have a good starting point for all my clips on the time line. Apply CST on one clip, take a still grab then apply the still (and CST settings) to all clips. And almost all of them have white black points more or less correct, skin tones are OK etc. It's much faster method. It was a game changer for me  
    With BMPCC 4K clips can get away with the first method and not spend tons of time because Davinci knows quite a lot about their own video clips, when you place them on the timeline. It's much better than GH5 or Sony HLG. It is for those 8bit compressed codecs where CST method shines the most. Again at least that's my experience. Color matching BMPCC 4K BRAW and Sony A7 III 8bit HLG is for me now easier than ever.

    It's a very interesting question. There are 3 methods how to approach the task and those 3 methods are actually different ways to structure your color correcting/grading workflow in Resolve. 
    Color matching two different cameras has 2 steps:
        1. Correctly interpret colors in Resolve for each camera.
        2. Color match them if there are differences.
    Hint. If the first step is done correctly you will have very little to no work on the second one. There are plenty of videos on youtube but all they go straight to the second one missing the crucial first step. One or more cameras most people don't know how to do correctly step one. That was my case until recently. 
    Method 1: LUTs and more specifically Leeming LUTs PRO. 
    If you shoot with each camera with the settings given by the author and then apply the corrective LUTs in Resolve for each camera you will get correct colors from both cameras. They should look the same. Panasonic GH5 and Sony A7 series are supported. 
    Tried this on BMPCC 4K and Sony A7 III and it works reasonably well. But not always and setting the cameras each time correctly require some work and attention. 
    https://www.leeminglutpro.com/ 
    Few professional colorists publishing tutorials on youtube advise against LUTs for color correction. 
    Method 2: ACES 
     
    Used ACES method in the past to work with Sony S-Log 2 video and results were great. 
    Method 3 - Color Space Transform effect in Resolve. This one was game changer for me and the method currently use as a first step for color grading/correction. Including when footage is from different cameras. My productivity in Resolve jumped at least two times and results are great. Wish I new this before ! The best video which explains the method and probably the most important part of color correction in Resolve is unfortunately in Russian. But you still will be able to pick up the principles and settings for both cameras. This guy is a ex professional colorist. Never seen anybody with tutorials on youtube explain the theory and practice so logically and simply. 
    Apart of the color space transform values for input and output color space and gamma, you should also set Tone Mapping to Luminance Mapping.  That's very important. 
    Once the color space transform is done on one clip do a stills grab and then apply it on all clips from the camera with few clicks. Same process for the clips of the other camera(s)
    All 3 methods require to be well aware what picture profile you used during the shoot. For Sony Cameras this colorist advise to use HLG. If you don't have HLG then you should use color profiles or create your own color profiles having Color Mode setting = SGammut. Because it is not clear what color space are Sony PP with Color Mode = Cinema, Pro, Movie. 
    Hope this helps.

    PS. As video shows method 3 is usable only if you shoot with Log profile or RAW. Only is this case Davinci Resolve will know how to interpret correctly the colors. For Panasonic cameras those would be V-Log and HLG and for Sony S-Log2, S-Log3(to avoid) and HLG (best). If your Sony camera doesn't support HLG, then only option would be standard S-Log2/S.Gammut Picture Profile. Or some kind of hybrid profile where Color Mode is S.Gammut and gamma is Cine2 or Cine4. But you'll have to experiment. Have no idea how footage will look and in Resolve there is no value that corresponds to Cine2 or Cine4 gamma. You'll have to try several options for input Gamma. Not sure how this will work. 
    For Panasonic Color Space transform for GH5 with HLG will look like these in Resolve
    Input Color Space: Rec2020
    Input Gamma: Rec.2100 HLG
    Output Color Space: REC709
    Output Gamma: REC709
    Tone Mapping : Luminance Mapping

    For Sony S-Log2 picture profile it would be:
    Input Color Space: Sony S.Gammut
    Input Gamma: Sony S-Log2
    Output Color Space: REC709
    Output Gamma: REC709
    Tone Mapping : Luminance Mapping
    Sometimes I play with output gamma. Can use Gamma 2.2 or Gamma 2.0 instead of REC709. Default for Resolve is Gamma 2.4
    If you can use X-Rite Color Chart during the shoots you will be golden. Color matching footage from the 2 cameras will be really easy.

    Bought Zhiyun weebill s image transmission module for 150E. In can be purchased and used separately from the gimbal. Works with any camera having HDMI out. Nice monitoring solution for BMPCC 4K. 
    For 150E + my Samsung Galaxy phone or an older Samsung Note 4 that don't use got very nice OLED monitor with great colors, 800-900 nits of luminance and touch screen interface. All major tools, like peaking, histograms, zebras, false color are available. Even more interestingly, it communicates with the camera and you can set all major parameter like white balance, ISO etc. from the touch screen. So it is a monitor but also a controller. A separate USB cable is used for the controlling functionality. Quite a nice alternative to much more expensive specialized monitors. And you can change easily the screen size too

    A guy told you.  Samsung T5 portable SSDs which are among the approved ones are 90$ for 500Gb and 137$ for 1Tb on Amazon. And that's cheap for me, cheaper even than SD cards per GB.

    And on approved media BMPCC 4K has no limitations
    By the way tried a Micron M2 SSD in an enclosure just because of the smaller dimensions. And BMPCC 4K didn't recognize the drive. But read other people were successful using non approved SSDs. 
    So it's up to you. I use Samsung T5 and SD cards. BMPCC 4K can record BRAW 5:1 on a SD card and that's good enough for 90% of what I shoot. For the rest there is Samsung T5 SSD.

    1. You can't use EOS EF-S (APS-C) Canon lenses on any speedbooster or Canon full frame camera. They have plastic part that protrudes deeper then normal full frame EOS EF lenses. Some people modify - cut the protruding part or simply pop up the plastic part in the back of the lens in order to mount them on full frame camera. I've done it on cheap EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 but won't do it on expensive EF-S 17-55mm f2.8.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EF-S_lens_mount 
    Solution is to use third party lenses, like Sigma or Tamron, they have standard EF mount and fit without problem.
    2. Viltrox speedboosters are cheap but often problematic. That's my conclusion. Have exactly the same combination as The ghost of squig - Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 + Viltrox EF-M2 II and it doesn't work. Tried BMPCC 4K firmware 6.2 and 6.6 and Viltrox firmware 2.3 , 3.3. Neither stabilization nor aperture work in any combination of firmware. So maybe my Viltrox is defective because it can't even change aperture of any other Canon lens I have (24-105mm, 50mm, Tokina 11-16mm) except Canon EF 35mm f2 (old version). By the way there is new Viltrox firmaware 3.4 but can't test it now.
    Solution for me is unfortunately to buy the much more expensive Metabones speedbooster.
    Otherwise BMPCC 4K is great for me. It has it quirks, they are well known but there are ways to get around them. Like  and use the camera a lot.

    Have this lens. Image stabilization works very well. It's controlled by the camera and by default is ON. You can turn it off in the menu (Setup).  Am sure was mentioned before but IS on BMPCC 4K works only when you start recording if you are using the internal battery. Obviously this is made to preserve the battery which doesn't last long. If you use external battery IS works all the time before recording and during recording. 
    During firmware upgrade was also stuck at 70% but after some time camera said upgrade finished and it works OK. That was my second try. First try disconnected by accident the USB cable. But after re connection was able to start upgrade from scratch and finish it successfully. So in my understanding firmware upgrade is well thought out.
    But new firmware 6.6 broke (again) Viltrox speed booster functionality. Aperture and  IS don't work with Viltrox firmware version 2.3 neither with version 3.3.☹️

    But yes in general getting good colors with Sony is more challenging and requires some research tests and fiddling with the settings, profiles, etc. A7S uses a different sensor and because of it or because of different CS is the worst when shooting 8bit 4:2:0 x264 video.

    It depends what same converter exactly  means. Same converter program or same program + same settings.
    Same converter + different adjustment values in converter + different camera = same colors
    Have done tests in photo with different cameras and there is no problem to get the same colors for the same scene  and lighting with different cameras and even different lenses.
    For me it boils down to what frontfocus said:
    And as how we see color is subjective, better starting point is also subjective. So there are some camera+converter combinations that we like more than the others and get us the colors we want and like much easier.

    It depends what kind of AF. Tracking AF in video is not working. At least when in ML RAW modes. It's working in photo mode. But don't like it and don't use it.
    However single shot AF is working in both photo and video including ML RAW. Single shot like: you press the button, camera focuses and signals when focus is achieved. It's kind of slow but it works and focus is reliable. In my settings different buttons are assigned for focusing and exposure metering. 
    Here is how usually shoot no matter if AF or MF is used.  1. check/correct exposure settings 2. Frame 3. Focus 4.Start recording. It's a slow process but works reasonably well. This is not a camera for fast paced shooting. 
    Settings in video are as follows: AF method - FlexiZoneAF square / Focus mode - AF+MF

The two timelines approach, with whole thing on the top and detailed clips at the bottom really helps me cut faster. Guess it all depends on our editing habits. Was able to almost finish the two small projects (total length of 7 min) in one day. Usually it takes much longer and this is the most difficult part for me - choosing the clips, or parts of the clips, figuring out the way to arrange them, composing the whole video.

    stephen got a reaction from mercer in 5K RAW 24p video for $150 - Magic Lantern making great strides on Canon EOS M   
    Latest EOS M ML RAW builds are from master chef Danne, here: 
    https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9741.msg208959#msg208959
    And you can follow development on the same thread.
    MLV App is de facto the only application to use as starting point of your editing.
    It is as an extension of the EOS M ML RAW video for many reasons:
        - effective way to remove focusing pixels
        - correctly debayering 5K Anamorphic crop mode. Or pseudo anamorphic is reality but anyway
    And yes get the latest MLV App and EOS M RAW versions. Ilya keeps adding new features to MLV App and Danne keeps fixing bugs and improving the build.

    Cinema 4K is fully supported and working on Samsung Galaxy S10+. Camera 2 API checker application shows full support which was kind of a problem with previous Galaxies. High bit rate and flat profiles are available trough Cinema 4K and other applications. Quality of the video is quite good IMHO.
    Filmic Pro checker reports everything is supported even log profile, including [email protected] and Cinematographer Kit with [email protected] FPS with log profile, the only exception being [email protected] and maybe Log v2 profile which as far as I understand is only working on some iPhone models (Apple A12 CPU required). 
    Keep in mind that in Europe Samsung Galaxy 10/10+ smartphones come with Exynos 9820 CPU, which according to Filmic Pro they can hack to support better their application. The version with Qualcomm CPU doesn't offer this support. At least that was the case with Galaxy S9.

    Optical stabilization is quite good. 
    Basically this is the second best smartphone to buy for video after iPhone XS and XS Max.

    Also looking for gimbal able to carry cameras slightly bigger than mirroless - BMPCC 4K, Canon 5D Mark III. And so far Moza Air 2 seems to be the best choice with only 2 drawbacks - weight and size. Moza gives a weight of 1.6kg with batteries.  Brandon Li complains in his review about the weight. But in Feiyu AK2000 gimbal review he says weight is OK. According to the specs Feiyu AK2000 with batteries is 1.4-1.45kg. Don't think 150-200g will make such a perceivable difference. And in most other reviews Moza Air 2 is measured to be close to Ronin S. 
    Time for Moza to come with Moza Aircross 2
