    Ps... i really enjoyed my nx1, but if you think it's anywhere close to this... might be time for a trip to the opticians.

    To be honest, I think that John B has a point.  It really doesn't make sense for Blackmagic to give it's unreleased camera to reviewers.  It could hurt sales if there are issues.  Also, you can't get mad at John because you've kind of positioned yourself as a "blogger" / "reviewer".  In regards to his "butchered footage" comment... I mean... uuhhh... some of it was pretty bad. Blackmagic customers ARE entitled... Have you been on their forum lately??  The can 100% guarantee that the second the pocket 4k is released, a thread will be started called "Pocket 4K v2 requests".  Lastly, you're not promoting their camera.  You're doing your blogging duties by talking about the most anticipated camera of the year.   It does seemed rather presumptuous to think that they'd send you a camera because of that.  It sounds like you're mad that you don't get the credit/respect that you think you deserve.  This is life.  I think the biggest issue though, is that you are in a box now, it's a blogger/reviewer box.  If you want to be in a filmmaker/shooter box, changing that  is in your hands.

    I am really looking forward to this review. Please include in your review about the focus peaking. That is the one feature that seems a little fiddly when I tested my friend’s. Since he already owns one, I am seriously considering this as the glovebox, hybrid cam I’ve been looking for. Also if you get a chance, I would love to see some footage with some of those Kern Paillards you have?

    This camera should flop anyway. I cancelled my pre-order the other day to go with the X-T3. A lot has changed since the original pcoket cam came out, the magic of raw doesn't quite hold up these days. I even went and repurchased my old pocket cam a few weeks ago at the same time that I also purchased a used EOSM for the purpose of shooting raw on it with Magic Lantern- I ended up returning the pocket cam and keeping the EOSM because even at $160 it was a better raw shooter than the BM.

    Sadly, I have seen crazy banding in many xt3 videos. That killed it for me; now to see if Panasonic or Sony can release what we want...

    You're a provocateur ... and a little sick:) .... Buy yourself a real professional video camera that can do it all and not a camera for photos. Also, the X-T3 is a camera with a video function and not vice versa. You are a troll;)

    I often get banding added in youtube compression so I wouldn't read to much into it before seeing original clips.

    Ditto.
     
    (BTW this thread is fully underestimated... 
    ...this Fuji is the 1st one of its kind to match the current GH series standard...
    ...other than going along BMD for motion picture
    with a plus:
    this is a hybrid!)

    Thanks @Alpicat. For the first few tests I used MLV app to decode the MLV files to DNG, then brought into Resolve 15 for editing and CC. On that last test, I finally got MLVFS to work on my Mac (still no luck on Windows side, just pink DNG's), and after a few strange renders (realized I had to set Chroma smoothing to 2x2 in MLVFS to get rid of some weird patterns that were showing up) I brought those DNG's into Resolve- MLVFS workflow is a great timesaver.

    I've spent too much money, blood, sweat and tears to just give away all my secrets. You'll have to go buy all the cameras yourself to find out.

    Well I liked the E-M1ii quite a bit, but knowing that the GH5 had 10bit, 400mbps ALL-I kept gnawing at me (even though I had no issue with the video I was getting from the E-M1ii), so I ended up switching. And the GH5 I quite liked as well, though its AF was definitely a step down from the phase-detection on the Olympus, so again I'm never happy. But everything was fine, until the A7iii was announced, for basically the same price I paid for the GH5, and it just seemed to be by far the smart choice all around. And I've owned quite a few Sony's, and besides the rolling shutter and boring erogomics, the picture and AF was always solid. The problem is the waiting for the A7iii to come out, I start seeing all these rave reviews of the Fuji, a company I also love quite a bit, so here I am.
    I think it comes down to the fact that I can't afford more than one camera, so I want to make sure I'm getting the best deal for the price (which is completely relative and unobtainable). I really had been doing quite well with sticking to one camera for the past year or so until a few months ago...

    All true, I guess I'm just coming off my few months of GH5/E-M1ii ownerships where I was truly spoiled in that regard.

    Does Andrew have some clairvoyant type knowledge of some future 'big' video related firmware update I wonder? Would make a lot of sense. My anticipation is that zebra's and/or false colour could come as well as general minor tweaks. Could there be limited record 4K 60p as well? Panning (in video) stabili(s)ation (hehe) tweaks perhaps, if this is even a confirmed issue or room for improvement.
    The stabilisation is great, but really it's not at present walking about great in my view, especially coupled with let's say average rolling shutter performance. My experience is that it's great for what it is, careful and considered hand held shooting, though don't expect wonders if moving about much unless perhaps coupled with your gimbal of choice....
