    Mattias Burling got a reaction from JordanWright in Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K   
    Not my experience, I got better looking footage with the older sensor in all lighting conditions. Specially in dim light (I shoot a lot of murky interiors and lights is not an option).
    But its great that others like it and I'm happy for you 
    The more that gets to enjoy the Blackmagics the better. I might buy one again in a year or so when they can be had cheap on the used market.
    One really positive thing I can say about the new sensor is that SOOC with a in camera LUT looks very good.

    Yup, same experience. I wanted nothing more than to love the BMCCii.. cough.. I mean BMPCC4K. 
    And there was a lot to love like handling, controls, screen, braw, window mode, slowmo, I can make this list really really long.
    But there was one single thing where it imo lacked compared to my Micro: Image.

    I spent several days shooting side by sides. Then hours in Final Cut and Resolve tweaking and grading. 
    The image from the newer camera is nice, no doubt. But the old sensor was just so much better in my eyes. I could spend an hour grading pocket footage to get it good looking. And then on the corresponding Micro clip I just threw on one of my custom presets or even just slap on Filmconvert and it was spot on immediately. It kinda reminded me of the A7sii. Everything was perfect on paper, handling it was fine, footage looked great on the back display but then.. meh..
    I packed up the bmpcc4k and shipped it it out to its new owner yesterday. The extra cash went into some more parts for my Micro.
    Will make a few different setups that I can flip between depending on the shooting scenario.

    It's all about the mage. I've shot side by sides all weekend long and the Micro consistently comes out on top. Both in raw and in Prores. A shame since using the BMPCC4K is an absolute breeze. Love the handling. The window mode and slowmotion is also sweet.
    (But I do really enjoy the SOOC image from the BMPCC4K when baking in the built-in LUT. But this camera is not meant for that type of shooting within my arsenal.)

    What goes around comes around. I think a tiny little thread to balance the thousands and thousands of trolls and paid commenters is ok. It can be a place for us camera agnostics to ventilate a little frustration

    Another question is when will any camera manufacturer give you those specs?
    Probably not for a long time. And when they do it's probably some h.265 crap. It sounds like it's time to graduate from messing with stills cameras and getting a real video camera. Won't be FF though.

    No one has said anything about that. I suggest you ignore this thread because it's not about criticism. It's about the over representation of Sony users threatening, attacking and bullying anyone who doesn't blindly apologize for Sony's shortcomings and hate all other brands.
    If you haven't experienced it, good for you. But many have and there is data supporting it. So we wish to discuss it

    Mattias Burling got a reaction from Django in I voted for Raw recording on the R   
    Not correct. LOG is available.
    Personally I shoot HD on all stills cameras (Sony, Fuji, etc) because of rolling shutter. The EOS-R has no RS in HD. So it is full frame for me.
    (4K on these consumer stills cameras doesn't make any sense for me for other reasons as well like file size, computer power and that no one can see the difference anyway. Not online and not on the big screen. So I dont bother, 4K better be on a real camera or not at all. But if one must have 4K I agree, framing would be difficult if one isn't quick enough.)
    Agreed. Never seen a camera with easier transitions between video and stills. Its one of the main reasons I pre-ordered one and later bought one for my employer as well.

    For me there was simply to many upsides. Biggest and most affordable lens line in history, top display, ergonomics, no RS, Full Frame video with C-log, Canon colors, 30mp stills, 8fps Raw continuous AF with a huge buffer, DPAF for stills (loved it since the 6Dmkii), good EVF, and more. All at a competitive price.
    I totally get why some choose an A7iii, Z6, S1, GH5, etc instead. We all have different needs. But trying to dismiss the R as being "bad" or calling anyone that find it useful a "fool" or "zombie" is just being totally naive, a fanboy or a troll.

    I wonder if it's some sort of over compensation for always playing catch up. Sony has no real "firsts". And even if that doesn't mean anything, because it doesn't. It seems important among spec hunters.

    If Fuji moves away from X-trans then I will move away from Fuji. The X-trans raw files is the main reason why I use them so much.

    It would be cool for sure. 
    Speaking of the R. Picked up my second R a few hours ago together with the 35mm f1.8 IS Macro.
    That lens has officially blown my mind. It is insanely detailed without being to sharp. IS works quietly. AF is fast.
    Before preordering my personal R the 35mm itself was one of the main reasons. Now I know that my thought process was justified

    My friend will be getting 2 R’s after he tried one for a wedding shoot to go with c200, I guess that make more sense than the a6500 he got as bcam atm.
     
    Yeah the Canon 35mm IS with 0.5 macro is the best everyday lens anyone has come up with so far! That macro is really useful for slice of life stuff, the closest thing would be Batis 40 f2 cf or Tamron 35 1.8 VC but their magnification is around 0.3x and batis is like 3x the price.
