“I didn’t read what you wrote” should be the new MAGA hat. But I guess it could be shortened to “I don’t read”
I love the folks (who most likely don’t vote in the US) saying that Liberals are upset and triggered. But it’s you lot that scream and burn your sneakers on Twitter and shoot up houses of worship. Eh comrades?

More like the silent majority. The ones that don't look like idiots when posting on forums/social media like the average Liberal does.
He didn’t win the majority vote though. But I’m sure you knew that. But if you didn’t, I can link you to some “electoral votes” for dummies videos if you need them. ?

Its too bad you can't do BRAW 1080 without cropping
Why wouldn’t you just downscale 4K though? I guess I’m in the mind that if I’m shooting RAW I want the biggest image available in terms of resolution. Otherwise what’s the point?
Kinda like being upset you can’t drive a Ferrari down an unpaved foot path,

To be more precise - look at "Lens Correction" tab at the bottom of Inspector panel in Edit page of Resolve.
And to be even more precise - and I apologize if you already did it - take a look just at most cinematography-wise acclaimed movie from last year production, The Favorite by Yorgos Lanthimos
Ha. I guess my question did come across ignorant. As I’m aware lens correction in post is possible. I guess I was more asking if it being in done in camera was something possible and “better” than the process in post
This might be an ignorant question, but the above conversation about lens distortion had me wondering, is correcting for the wider lenses something that BM can correct in a firmware upgrade?

How about the 12-60mm Panasonic, or the 12-35mm, or the 12-40 Olympus? Does anyone have any hard facts? I guess the only issue is with zoom lenses, but that's a huge problem which I wish knew about it a few months ago.
The Panasonic 12-35mm definitely fisheyes and distorts at 12mm.
i can post the raw, but I had crop in on the wide shot of the fountain in this clip because of the fisheye vignette but you can see the distortion pretty plainly

Whilst I don't disagree at all with the overall point you're making, I think it is fair to point out that Blackmagic do actually show it in a numerous scenarios in their marketing that would fit into that sort of use, at least in the way they are representing the cameras being used by the operators.
Although the detail in the equipment used section for each scenarios belies those illustrations, which is a bit misleading as well.
Haha I see your point. I guess I’ve only ever saw the video clips and not the way they were used in the marketing material.
I’m curious about the folks “taking away points” from the BMPCC4k for not being a run and gun camera. I’m not sure I saw marketing that claimed it was one. So while I’m sure some people find that input and insight important when choosing a camera, I still find it odd that some use it as a metric to claim the camera is “less usable”
But i guess i agree, if you’re looking for a camera to shoot wedding type events in run-and-gun mixed light scenarios, then this probably isn’t the camera for you. If you want that setup and footage you can just drop a LUT on and not think about. GH5 is hard to beat.
If you’re a more planned and set-up type of photographer who needs a cheap camera that gives you a cinematic raw image that you know how to color correct. This is an excellent choice.

are you in britain and the eu have started running blockades ? ?
that must be pretty embarrassing for bmd to still be so far behind the eight ball. Talk on the facebook page seems to have died down. i thought bmd must have been shipping more units. To be honest i haven't really tried to keep up on whats happening since receiving mine not thats any consolation to you.
The demand must be pretty strong. B&H restocked when the 6K was announced, I got mine that week (end of July I think) from them in store without a preorder and they seemed to be pretty well stocked. Must have moved a lot of units for them to be sold out again less than 3 months later

Or shoulder mount? Honestly I dont think I want to use an EasyRig without an assistant or a production crew around me. Maybe it's just me because I'm not a pro, but it looks like a movie prop
Might help give some heft for a shoulder too. EasyRig solo isn’t that much of a pain. You just pull down the cable with one hand and mount the camera with the other. I used to do it all the time with a c100 mk2 operating without an asst for one reason or another

Having used my P4Ks and my P6K many times on shoots, I wonder about this grip. It looks like it would be great on a tripod, and I love the features, but I really don't see this as being something that would be comfortable to use when going handheld. I have my cameras in a cage with a side handle and a F970 battery on top. With this grip, with the two handles and extra bulk on the bottom, I wonder how well it would work in the field. I would be happy to try it out and see how it works in person.
The extra weight and bulk would come in handy if you had the camera mounted on an EasyRig.

I still consider it a better picture (OG BMPPC).
For more than a year I have been waiting for a video from BMPCC4k that would excite me
I’m not much of a pixel peeper. I don’t use any quantitative measure or anything, I just know what my eye likes. And while I do see the difference between the OG and the 4K, I’d be hard pressed to say I like one over the other. They’re slightly different, but not earth shattering, in my humble opinion.
i really like the image I’m getting from the 4K, for the price of the camera I think the image is incredible. I haven’t had a project come through to put it fully through it’s paces, but so far it’s been more than capable of roaming around the city with me in a minimalistic setup.
Besides the lens, the only thing rigged to the camera is a SmallRig T5 bracket bolted directly to the top 1/4” and a Jobby 5k gorilla pod to use more as a forearm brace than tripod for support. All of it with batteries and filters fit in a Peak Design small sling bag. While not in my pocket, still pretty light setup that’s easy to bring practically anywhere. I even have enough space in the bags for a Cineo Matchbox light
The screen isn’t ideal, but honestly it’s just as frustrating in direct sun as the c100 mk2’s display, and that one swivels ?
Maybe I’m easily amused, but I’m happy.
Here are a few more quick shots
Panasonic Lumix G 12-35mm ii f2.8
Black Pro-Mist 1/4
Been having fun with native lenses on the 4K now that I sorted out a few things to make it a bit more handheld. Honestly it’s such a strange looking camera that I think most people assumed I was shooting stills.
Anyway, here’s a quick 30sec sequence. Using the subway as my muse on a fairly bright overcast day in my neighborhood. I was honestly surprised at how decent the onboard mics are for ambient audio.
Blackmagic Pocket 4k
Olympus 45mm f1.8
Sony ND 8
Tiffen ND 0.6

get an extra phone mount, the next video challenge might be some kind of phone challenge if you have a spare holder you'll be ready.
i already have mine prepared, just in case ( see what i did there ?)
Not sure how much glamming up my iPhone 6 footage can take. But at least I have the neat “blackmist” permanent scratches on the lens. So at least it will be very filmic
For those who care:
If anyone is looking for a mounting solution for a none Samsung T5 ssd, I found this to be a pretty cheap option.
I had a spare Sandisk extreme pro SSD from my Atomos ninja and wanted a mounting option for the larger external SSD enclosure.
This is the enclosure I went with
as for the mount I went with this bracket. It’s meant for a smartphone but it’s a good quality aluminum alloy bracket with multiple mount points. Works great and can hold varying width enclosures
Thought I’d share, cheers!

I found myself doing that a bit awhile back too and I kind of called myself out on it. When I stopped shying away from green tints and cooler tones, I started notice how much color contrast and I was robbing that picture of. Of course, that's just when it comes to color correction not when going to for a look.
I think I started to veer warmer in my corrections because, as I stated in my OP, I've been doing a lot of work that is being mostly consumed via handheld digital device or laptop. As much as I would love for more people to watch YT and such on their big fancy smart TVs, we're just not there yet according to the back-end analytics.

They're actually properly white balanced. You just tend to prefer things to be very warm looking judging from your grades.
For example, the sun is rising in the balloon shot and everything else in the shot is in shadow so it would actually be very blue because it's being lit by the sky itself. In the forest shot, you made all the trees very yellow which makes things feel sunnier, but the trees are obviously green.
A lot of BMD shooters seem to do that though, but it's a preference, it's not accurate.
Fair enough, I believe you're right. I'm definitely no professional colorist, and I probably have started to lean towards preferring more warmer tones lately.

Pretty sure that was just what the white balance was set to.
Maybe, but I found it to be the case in the other 2 shots I colored as well. All three had to have reds and oranges pushed into the highs and mids.

I love what you did with the balloon footage. I tried that but hated all of my attempts... so much blue, cool to see you pull the orange out of the sky.
Yeah I really like the BM color science in this PCC4k, but it does skew cool in the highlights and mids for sure. I'm pushing quite a bit of orange and red into them for that balloon shot, using the color wheels in Lumetri.
Been lurking in this thread since the announcement. Thought I'd throw my hat in the ring and put some color on the footage. I wanted to color it with the least amount of lift to get it looking good, so I chose colored it within Premiere only using the available Lumetri Color panel. No sharpening or grain correction (adding or removing), no HSL Secondary, just color. My rationale for this being that I think the BPCC4k would fair rather well on shoots for a media company who's main delivery is YT/FB/.Com etc. This is the world I currently work in professionally, and the skill level of a video team in that world can vary greatly.
I think it fairs pretty well without going with an extreme pro level of correction, with fairly minimal time spent. Which is exciting when I'm thinking about projects where the deadline is tight.

Looks like an Ikonoskop.
Ah, cool. Never heard of or seen one before. Googling now. Thanks!
I'm not sure what to even google for this, so if it's been discussed I apologize.
I've been editing video for NY Fashion Week. In the last eight days I've scrubbed through about terabyte of video. While going through video yesterday I spotted this camera and at first glance I thought it was the Blackmagic camera. Then I saw it from the profile and had a "WTF?" moment.
I asked the videographer if she happen to ask him what it was and she said she did but only got a vague "it's a prototype from sweden" as an answer.
Anyway i grabbed some cropped stills of the camera and the operator. Anyone have any info?
Introducing the EOSHD Tim Apple LUT for that washed out nationalist propaganda look
You can spot the fools duped by the Soviet propaganda machine because they regurgitate the buzzword phrases they’ve been fed; “so-called,” “like a fiddle,” “the libs,” etc. You all sound like someone pulled the string on the back of your Putin dolly.
So far the right-wing commenters here are relying on gaslighting, straw men, and false equivalency. Not a single fact or citation to defend Comrade Trump. But I suppose if this was the guy I thought was a hero of the people, I’d have nothing to go on either.
