    Well the best artists steal I suppose.
    And I totally see the logic giving a demo unit to someone with 55 subscribers.

    I just got an email from the camera store saying 'Your order is on the way'!
    Needless to say, i was quite excited, and then I remembered I ordered something else from them yesterday (Sunday) so it's not the camera that's coming.  ?

    Hey Everyone, 
    Here’s a bunch of stuff I’ve shot, graded and edited for music videos between 2012-2018. 
    The shots in the reel not done by me are the drone shots. 
     
    For you camera nerds, I used......
    Sony FS700, FS5, FS7, F55, A7SII, A6500.
    Panasonic GH3, GH5. 
    DJI X3, X5R.

    Oh, just saw that 8sin is working on a specific T5 mount. Guess I'll stick around and see what it will look like.

    That's my idea as well: Manfrotto has clamps that should easily hold a t5 in place.

    I think I'm going to use velcro, or bring back that epoxy idea and stick on a shoe mount.
    As for rolling shutter, the mountain bike video will give you a good idea of how much it effects the footage... It's not noticeable to me at all.

    Think they showed us focus peaking when talking about 'waveforms'. Think they have little idea what they're talking about. They also called the 4/3" sensor inside slightly bigger than the Micro Four Thirds sensor... which... is not a thing. xD

    Hmm. Crappy.
    Obviously Blackmagic didn't invite me to the hands-on. Pretty clueless of them not to.
    I would have quite liked to have taken one on a shoot.
    I do at least know what ProRes is

    I like the pictures. A lot. 
    This camera will probably replace the micro cinema camera for me as it’s not much bigger and is much easier to work with. 
    I didn’t feel as strongly about the 4K production camera / Ursa because they were limited, principally by dynamic range.
    I have a deep affection for the 4.6K sensor and have shot nearly daily withnit since before it was launched. I know it very well. 
    This pocket camera will integrate and sit very nicely alongside the 4.6K. It’s already a closer match than the micro for me without having really tested it in an A/B scenario. 
    I was a little worried about it having less DR Than the 4.6K but I think the other clips  show some great examples of what this sensor can do. “Nature” was incredibly tricky material to shoot as anyone who’s been in that situation before would know and it was unfair to see it being derided.  
    Those that did so only reveal their own inadequate understanding of what those shots reveal. 
    I can think of a million other scenarios I would have rather done but these sequences were specifically produced to illuminate what the camera can do in specific situations. 
    What im almost more excited about is the unification that Gen 4 brings. As I mentioned earlier, it’s pretty much the same people at BMD that brought you the first camera working on this camera.
    They’ve learned a lot (and so have I) and I think Gen 4 is really strong. I wish this and extended video would get rolled out wide already as I think half the issue I see with users of BMD products is a lack of knowledge in grading. 
    Now BMD do have perhaps the greatest colour correction tool on the market BUT they don’t make it easy to get to a great result without a little arcane knowledge.
    Even I often run into issues when working by myself and I see extended video being a great step in addressing that shortcoming. There’s no point in talking about how great you can make images shot RAW if you don’t know how to do it and can’t easily or intuitively find a way to do so. 
    With regards to the 4k Pocket. 
    Its a genuine low light contender. I was really impressed at what a useable picture it produces with little lighting.
    I’m laughing at those that said it’s overlit. I mean a 500w chimera dimmed to almost nothing so the background lighting would still show though the tinted hotel windows is very very low light, much lower levels than the idiots demanding I walk out on the street and light by sodium were demanding.
    Again, I laugh when I see comments about how noisy ISO3200 is but I’m guessing those users aren’t aware how much image processing their cameras are doing at high ISOs.  BMD allow you as the user to choose your poison. A very very underrated feature. And like colour correction it’s almost too powerful because users haven’t been instructed to change their expectations, nor how to add noise reduction or sharpening so they can season to taste. 
    The best testbfootage will be friends users so the sooner they ship the cameras the better.  Hopefully Gen 4 means there will be less hysteria about its performance and a few will realise there’s no point comparing it to a GHx or a Sony and learn to get the most from what it is good at.

    Work in advertising and haven't really had much time for my own projects the past years. But I am releasing a music video in June that I directed, shot (handheld BMPCC), edited and colored. 
    For now, this is my latest, for mother's day:

    I have one on order, but have been telling myself not to expect it until 2019. If I get it earlier, yahoo! I also predicted that this thread would grow to over 100 pages before any sample video would be seen. Now I think it might be 200.
    It would be nice if someone from BM would give us an update. Give us some real numbers of when we'll see some sample footage and give us a legit timeframe as to when they will start to ship. It's the least they could do for their customer base.
    Where are you BM?
