    Turboguard got a reaction from Juxx989 in Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K   
    Funny how people on here say they don’t want the camera but still come back to have opinions about it, a camera barely no one has their hands on yet and they probably have never even seen in real life on top of that.
     
    As someone who owns it (and loves it!) and also still owns the OG pocket, I can let you know that with both cameras I get paid 700dollars a day to take pictures with them. Funny right!
     
    Next week is first day to take pictures with the P4K actually. I have a very simple work flow with it, just load your DNG into ACR and voila! Here’s a load of pictures taken with OG pocket if you wanna have a look;

    I don't think it's a binary choice like that at all.
    We have the Pocket, Micro, UMP and new P4k.
    Always loved the look of the original Pocket. The Micro while a bit different is very similar and a bit better over all in noise, moire and detail
    I can make the P4k look exactly like the pocket/Micro in a minute in post but I could never make the original Pocket look as good as the P4k.
    The P4k is a totally next level camera and image.

    I uploaded a few ProRes 1080p 24fps in this thread last week.

    FWIW, especially shooting in ProRes, I'd avoid shooting in Extended Video.
    I did extensive testing with EV vs Film log and there's no reason to take the hit on DR...especially baking it in.
    Monitor in EV if you like while shooting FIlm and then it's simply one step to apply EV in post which will look identical on scopes to EV in camera but with the latitide to get the full DR of the new camera.
    Also, when shooting ProRes I don't bother with Resolve as FCPX is optimized for it and really fast  - even UHD, even on a MB pro.
    Also, if using the EV LUT in FCPX, I've found dialing in to around 30% after balancing initially with the scopes is the sweet spot.

    Ewwwww free stuff?! Affordability?! Groooosss, did I accidentally buy a camera for poor people?! I’m giving my P4K away, my iPhone Xs Max has better color science, IBIS AND shoots 4K60p! Oh and it was more expensive than the P4K so I won’t be embarrassed when shooting my next gig with it, PHEW!
    But I saw tons of total nobodies using the camera back in August all over YouTube! It already exists, where is mine?! I bought the original on release, used it for gigs such as products for e-commerce companies back in day, as well as my partner using it for his street photography (he’s a famous photographer) so WHY do I have to wait?!?! It already exists?!?

    Okay guys, PANASONIC DROPPED THE FUCKING BOMB. I ordered Lumix LX100-2 on announcement, was said to receive it OCT 1st!!! Then that changed to Oct 16th, which is tomorrow, and STILL no shipping, I looked at BH now and it says exp delivery Oct 25th?!? WTF Panasonic?! I will never trust a company that lies so much to its customers! I’m not canceling my preorder cause it was a gift to my partner, but listen PANA, you lost a customer in me! Panasonic = Evil corporation mentality, I’m nothing but a slave consumer to them.
     
    edit: this is a Panasonic thread no?

    Well going by the comments on DPR you ought to be glad you are canceling it.

    I’ve done commercials with BMD cameras and Software that A LOT of people have seen, a lot more people than the people writing and viewing this thread, did I get a free camera? Can we put this shit behind us?
    I have P4K, T5 and 5 LPE6 at the moment. Probably rounded up to say 1800

    Ben, I didn’t post any of the shots to rave. I even said that I was intoxicated (probably 10th old fashion at the time I brought out the camera). Did you see the OG post?

    Well guys, as someone who has it, (and works professionally with cameras) I can tell you I love it! That’s it, it’s a beautiful piece of technology and even though I haven’t had time to shoot something bigger than a few ProRes clips in the evenings before bed I totally adore the images it produce. I’m very excited for my 8sinn cage and T5 holder to arrive next week as I have 2 days off to really get to know the camera!

    I still find it funny that reviewers of the old BMPCC pulled out the word "pocket" and pretended it belong with the RX100x. 
    IMO, its a Cinema camera. A pocket sized cinema camera. No matter how much you say that lenses, batteries etc makes it bigger.
    That does not take away the fact that this is a cinema camera. A pocket sized cinema camera.

    It’s heavy with the Sigma 18-35 on it. I can’t single hand it for very long. Second night now I have some time to play with it. Loving everything so far!

    Here's a quick grade of the ProRes. Grades super smooth, as expected. Love how it handles details and highlights. This footage is like kindergarten level compared to grading the OG BMPCC's prores (meaning this is so smooth and easy). And I don't like adding sharpness (midtone details) or the like. All luma curve, some temp and tint change, and hue.

    Would anyone want some fresh of the card ProRes HQ 422's that I shot (while I was a little too drunk) last night? Handheld with speedbooster .71(Nikon) and Sigma 18-35.

    These are the settings for all clips:

     
    Disclaimer! I did remove the audio because of privacy (eg I'm wasted and slurring) but I will say that the on board microphones ARE FINE, they are very clear and I'm super surprised by both picture and sound!

    WELL, I can confirm that my third party batteries are showing % on the BMPCC. I have Green Extreme and Watson. I am working on holiday commercials incl Black Friday PLUS coloring a documentary that's being shown at SXSW so have ZERO time to play. But if you have any questions/concerns I can answer them all in time.
     
    I also bought the XLR adapter from BMD today so will do some audio tests!
