    Fwiw, shooting raw video on my 4 year old 50d blows the doors off anything "current" with h264. That includes my hacked gh2. Andrew is correct: the big Japanese camera manufacturers need to innovate or get the fuck out of the way.

    The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera is a wake-up call to the bigger manufacturers and their afterthought video modes.

    I shot a test film using 25mm f/1.4 CCTV cine Fujian:

    I'm pretty happy with the results, especially given the price of the lens:

    Anyone successfully tried a B4 with a 2x doubler on a Canon EOS camera? Seems with ML you get a 3x crop function which is really nice (650D).
     
    Adapter I've ordered.

    Over 600 people on there seem to think c mount lenses are ideal for BMPC and other M4/3 cameras. Some people here need to get a relaity check and start learning the fine art of manual focusing.

    Sorry but you are wrong and that is your opinion. People buy a CINEMA camera and then want to use clinical oversharp lens and they result in a 'video look' is pretty pointless!
     
    Before righting off all C mount lenses, I'd suggest you listen to what others are experiencing in a positive light. I can certainly vouch that the several HIGH QUALITY C Mount zooms used on 16mm and Super 16mm cameras in the past even surpass old B4 ENG lenses.
     
    Also pretty pointless is your suggestion of using FULL FRAME with a 3X crop lenses for the BMPC! The M4/3 Speedbooster or any of it's cheap chinese contemporaries at this time do not exist for purchase. Some of the C mount lenses have as much fine glass and elements in them as much as the "decent 1960's-1980's MF lenses from Zeiss, Nikkor, Olympus, Canon." you suggest as many were made by them!

    Lee Mullen reacted to Oscar M. in Which Compact Flash card for 5D Mark III raw video?   
    OK for on set I understand. But for other "not time constrained" projects, why not grade first? which would be pretty easy with DNGs in AE or photoshop. All you have to do is grade one frame and AE will apply it to the rest of the sequence, then export your graded footage to ProRes for editing.

    The point is, for grading, ProRes just does not have the shadow/highlight recovery flexibility of RAW dng. I think though that Cinema DNG is the way to go for ML.

    If this is in relation to showcasing the raw hack I have one complaint, why is everything shot on a tripod, no moving, no steadycam run and gun, it's like those promotional videos for a camera where you see static gorgeous footage but as soon as you buy it and you start using it is not the same, I want to see some fast action and how it looks.
    Let's see how it handles fast action.

    Lee Mullen reacted to Andrew Reid in Blackmagic 4K Production Camera 'now due in September'   
    If this is true, what on earth are they playing at?
     
    Surely they must have the ability to scale their production to demand.
     
    At a rate of 100 units per month there's a good chance it will take a year to go through the pre-orders and that is a VERY conservative estimate of 1000 pre-orders. I expect they had a lot more than that given the consumer pricing and attractiveness of the spec AND the temptation of people to keep the Pocket pre-order open whilst they cancel others, or even move their pre-order from a more expensive model to the Pocket.
     
    You can't ship such low quantities in this market, even in a niche part of it. Just doesn't work.
     
    Blackmagic need to give us proper answers on their production capacities and whether they can ramp up, otherwise all we're going to be lead to do is speculate that it might take a year for some people to their cameras and that isn't useful or constructive for Blackmagic.

    What annoys me is how some people are happy to take this BMD BS up the arse with comments like "but at least they are trying" or "well we should be grateful for their innovations" or some other nonsense.

    Frankly, I consider the BMD statement outrageous (personally still waiting for the BMCC MFT). They're making fools of their customers. I believe this is some deliberate and historically bad marketing crap like "we must make people talk about the product, then we take the pre-orders, then we see how big the demand probably is, then we check who might manufacture our stuff" [ ... ]

    I mean: They must be kidding. "We are on schedule. It will be July." "July means end of July." "End of July, yes, then we are done with our tests, but, well, production is another thing." "End of July, that is, can we call August still end of July? We surely can." [ ... ]

    I'm still keen on the BMCC for its richness in detail etc. - but following this ridiculous story for a comparatively short time (since February) I really believe someone at BMD seriously needs to be fired. If the "marketing" policy is "invented" (sooooo clever) by the boss himself, well, then I would recommend a fast management buyout and sending the boss to the outback.

    To me, the new "launch dates" really were a litmus test even if I'm not interested in the pocket or 4k version. With this "well, it's a delay, yes, but can't we pretend it is not? Will you buy some totally authorized (!) nonsens blah blah if you get it 'exclusively'?" - they have - in my opinion - ruined their image. Utterly. Sadly.

    Am I upset? Yes, because I'm just fed up to see the world getting ruined by "we are so great, we are one big family, just smile" marketing clowns. BMD is, of course, not the only example here.

    I agree with Tony, this method helps teach.
     
    You get 1.25 seconds per shot (based on 24fps playback).  You only have 1 second to film each shot, so shoot carefully. haha.  Piecing together even the making of the latte required a good bit of thought and planning.  If I miss the final pouring of the milk, then the barista is going to have to make another latte just so I can get the shot again.   Shooting like this with the V1 like this can only improve your skill.  I like it because it makes me be more focused on what exactly I want to capture.  Instead of just pushing record, filming for a few minutes, and then pulling out the 2 second clip I need.  
    Its almost like when some all digital photographers want to learn to shoot film.  It makes them slow down and focus more on composition instead of rapid firing.  You don't want to waste the film.  You want to make it count.  With the V1 shooting 4K Raw, you want to make that 1.25 second shot count.  
     
    Its experimentation.  It should be fun.  It should be creative.  So let the creativity flow!
