  1. If you mean BMPC-4K footage, it's been available for a while, including several camera-original 4K ProRes HQ files: http://herefortheweather.wordpress.com/2013/12/19/bmpc-4k-1st-sample-footage-finally/ http://herefortheweather.wordpress.com/2014/02/05/bmpc-4k-marco-solorios-bmw-car-racing-doc-teaser/ http://herefortheweather.wordpress.com/2014/02/05/bmpc-4k-music-video-dpd-by-captainhook/
  2. Hi Andrew: Thanks for a good article. BMD says the BMPC-4K sensor is "21.12mm x 11.88mm", not S35 motion picture frame size. Perhaps you should update the diagram in the article? Diagrams are a helpful way to show how the GH4's sensor is smaller (less wide) than the BMPC-4K sensor when both cams are in UHD (3840 x 2160) mode. Likewise it would be good if the diagram also showed how the GH4 crops its sensor when in full 4K mode. The GH4 looks to be an improvement on the GH3 in every way. Eventually I'll probably add a GH4 to my GH1, GH2 & GH3 collection, but hopefully my BMPC-4K
  3. Or, just get a Blackmagic Cinema Camera and shoot industrial-strength 1080p 10-bit ProRes 422 HQ (log) @ 220-megabits/sec, or uncompressed 2.5K 12-bit RAW CinemaDNG @ 5-megaBYTES/frame, both with 13-stop dynamic range, on commodity-priced SSD media, with a plenty-big-enough sensor, EF lens mount, dual balanced audio inputs, 5" LCD touchscreen, headphone jack, built-in uninterruptible power supply, including state-of-the-art software, all for $3K US -- and be very, very, happy. And, if you want, add a "GH3" body-only for pretty-OK-looking 1080p60/50 (hopefully) for ~1/3 t
  4. As a long-time GH1 & GH2 owner & supporter ... [url="http://www.cinematography.com/index.php?showtopic=37701"]http://www.cinematog...showtopic=37701[/url] [url="http://www.cinematography.com/index.php?showtopic=48216"]http://www.cinematog...showtopic=48216[/url] ... I'm looking forward to the new "GH3" or whatever Panasonic decides to call it. My m43 lenses want a new body! However, as a US resident, I'm concerned about Panasonic's US organization actually making the new camera available for sale to US customers via authorized US dealers any time soon
  5. Photokina starts in a few weeks, and the BMCC will [i]probably[/i] start shipping before the show is over, if not sooner (just a guess). Most of the cameras announced at Photokina won't start shipping for many weeks or months, some not until 2013. Meanwhile, the BMCC is probably by far the best video camera value right now, for reasons I explain in another post elsewhere here in the forums (I'll wait here while you go read it): [url="http://www.eoshd.com/comments/topic/1217-canon-launch-8000-cinema-eos-c100/page__st__60#entry16913"]http://www.eoshd.com...__60#entry16913[/url]
  6. Hi IanCarlson: I agree completely! See my post elsewhere in the forum:
  7. [quote name='vincegortho' timestamp='1346306987' post='16919'] I apologize for old questions. If I don't want to shoot RAW DNG on the black magic. Will ProRes 422 files be compatible with Premier and after effects CS5.5? [/quote] Adobe video software has supported ProRes (various levels of the codec) on Mac & Windows for years. I suspect the older version of CS that you have probably does, too. But you should double-check with Adobe to be sure, and to see if a software update or driver is required.
  8. Hot Rod Cameras is likely to be one of the first reputable companies to offer a m43 lens mount mod for the BMCC. There will of course be others, too. It's too obvious & tempting for it not to happen, and very soon. http://www.hotrodcameras.com/?p=4038

Why choose over BMCC? To avoid costs of SSDs, graphic cards for post, rig, monitor, audio xlr rig, and HUGE storge costs. The BMCC has very limited low light and is not suited for event or doc work, and that is according to them.

Also, the C100 has XLRs I handle, allowing for a much more compact setup than a c300. Have to see of color banding is an issue with the AVCHD codec.
[/quote] There you go again, Philip, with your insistence that the BMCC requires "expensive" add-ons! I
  10. Am I reading the C100's specs correctly: No 50p or 60p? At what list price? In 2012? I think the BMCC is a far better value than the C100 camera if video quality is more important to you than built-in ND filters, phantom power, and a 1.6 crop factor difference. I also think that the BMCC's true "killer feature" is not its ability to record uncompressed 2.5K 12-bit RAW CinemaDNG, but instead it is its ability to do that [b][u][i]and[/i][/u][/b] alternatively record 1080p 10-bit ProRes 422 HQ using "Film" (log) gamma @ 220-megabits/sec.
