    tweak got a reaction from zerocool22 in Zcam Sub Forum.   
    I use BM5 and the Powerextra NPF960 with DC out on top. The Portkeys BM5 comes with a short locking cord to plug it into the battery. To put in my bag I just fold the screen down flat (take the handle off if one is attached) and shut the bag. Couldn't be much simpler. Batteries last longer than my 256GB CFast2.0 card takes to fill.

    Hi @Andrew Reid,

    Just wondering if it would be possible to make an Zcam sub forum? The FB group is very popular but it's a terrible way to access information, it would be cool to have a proper place to direct people and catalogue information.

    Cheers.

    p.s. Delete this thread if you want.

    Yes you can do 4K with ML. Yes the framing is impractical for any professional application. Yes they haven’t fixed this on the mark iii and probably never will. That camera doesn’t seem to get much development nowadays

    Why can't canon just do something half decent? I'd kill for an APS-C canon version of a6500 or GH5 etc... Yeah I know why, but still it would be nice.

    I don't see any noise issues what so ever with my shots. I mainly shoot Proress 422 48fps.
    If you expose properly (as you must with most cameras, just don't overexpose) the colour, detail and DR from this camera punches way above it's price point.

    Oh, very much. I've given up on gimbals altogether a few shoots ago. They always fail. And look mechanic.
    As for the weight, I'm pretty flimsy, so when I have my Iscorama rig up, (rails, follow focus, v-lock, evf, I'll already feel it at the end of the day. And I only shoot handheld.

    Might depend on the size of battery?
    This I don't want to have to do to be honest. I could probably live with it. But the point for the C-fast over the ssd for me is easy access and quick turn around.
    This is very good to know. First straight answer Ive gotten and I have asked a lot of reviewers. Thanks
    I know. But it so far doesn't have it in all frame rates, which are the main attraction over the BMPCC4K for my usage.
    But since I recently sold my second BMPCC4K last week its main competition is now a Fuji for 120p. And then it might win

    Swapping batteries is actually super simple, it looks like it would be an issue but once you've done it you realise it's easy.
    With a smallrig cage Cfast is easy to get to. Mount your handle on the nato rail with a quick release and it's less of an issue (I've found myself hardly shooting with the side handle anymore though).
    Image is great. You're right that not much good footage is floating about, it's something that held me back as well.
    Crop factor is the same for all codecs/speeds as far as I can see, the only change is if you use the 2.7K super16 crop mode. 

    You're correct that most reviews online for the cam are rubbish.

    I've mentioned a few times over the years that this lens is limited & not very practical for many filming situations, but I suppose most people don't like searching too far back into the forum's history. It is a nice little lens & the glass is superb, but best for situations where you don't have to film past 5M & you'll need low powered diopters.
    You can rack a little, maybe a meter or 2, but not over a long distance - you need a taking lens with a decent amount of focus throw at the 5M mark & the use of a +0.3 or +0.5 helps, as does stopping down the lens a little. I used it for filming concerts, so it was ideal for this as you could focus a little without having to change the diopters all the time & with strong stage lights it flared as well. You can film past 5M, but it won't be tack sharp & Infinity is not an option.
    I've no idea how much they go for now, but you'd get better value for money going for a dual focus & then add a variable diopter.

    tweak got a reaction from Zak Forsman in Z-CAM quietly announce 8k and 6k FULL FRAME cameras - no joke!   
    Nice job! Skin tones are easy to get right on the E2 and although there may be some noise due to M43 sensor size, I don't feel like it's an issue or limiting my work at all.
    I also consider getting one of the newer models when they come out, but I'm wondering how much that would really add to my production level. The low light is actually surprisingly good on E2, but I guess we always want better  .
