    I find the best results when I expose correctly with the Pocket 4k. I also almost always stay at 400.

    Mattias Burling got a reaction from darklight00 in BMMCC - Huge kit   
    Cleaning out some excess gear. This is a Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera with pretty much everything you need.
    PM if interested. We can start at €950 and see if we have any takers. 
    I can ship with ease within the EU but also Canada/USA even though that might be expensive.

    The kit contains:
    BMMCC body
    Metabones BMPCC-EF Speedbooster
    iKan VL35 Monitor
    URSA-mini handle
    One Little Remote v4
    Sandisk Extreme 512GB
    Smallrig Cage
    Rosette mount
    URSA-mini handle
    Radioproektor Breakout Box
    HDMI-clamp
    HDMI-kabel
    LANC-kabel

    As well as some extra bits and pieces like a speed booster support mount etc.

    The only issue with any of it is the middle out of the three mounting points at the bottom of the camera. The other two works. And if you keep it in the cage you will never even see it let alone have any issues with not using it (the cage has more mounting holes than you can ever need).
    The URSA-handle with the breakout box or through the Little remote v4 lets you start/stop, auto iris and AF.
    The One Little Remote lets you:
    * IRIS
    * Focus
    * White balance
    * ISO
    * Zoom (with supported lens),
    * Shutter angle,
    * Audio levels.
    * Codec selection (Micro Cinema only)
    * Frame rate selection
    * Auto focus
    * Auto exposure
    * focus stops
    * remote control up to 80m

    Mattias Burling got a reaction from tokyojerry in Canon rush to reassure investors as camera profits plunge 64%   
    Just because you don't understand my point doesn't mean that others live in a dream world. Sony has lost so much money on their camera business over the last year's that it's gonna take a long time to recover.
    You are talking about Sony as a whole and yes they make a lot of money. So do Panasonic. But it's not from cameras. Same with Fuji whos reports show its basically Instax film making the money in the photo segment, not the XT3.
    But we have been down this boring road before where we argue about the same thing. A few talk about camera sales and others about cameras + water heaters. The numbers don't add up and instead of communication it's attacks and baiting. Then someone calls me an idiot and you explain that you are old and therefore right by default
    So I will end it there.
    All I say is read the financial reports and be critical. They to are written for marketing reasons. Don't just eat the propaganda. Ask why cameras are lumped with TVs in one company but separated at others? Ask why Sony lumps it with video cameras etc? Ask why some put them under "other"? And ask if you think they would show huge profits from a segment if they could, would share holders care?

    Luckily there are many business men and women in your age that does not roll over and give up. Instead they see the potential for something different, which unlike what many believe, isn't the same as worse. Will be fun to follow which camera companies that gets it and doesn't die.
    Trying to make the this century a copy paste of the last is a first class ticket to marginalization.

    Mattias Burling got a reaction from newfoundmass in Sony - the new Canon!   
    Pentax have more options, more function and more buttons, but their menus is way more intuitive.
    My smartphone has way more options, +100,000 apps and accesses millions of web pages. None of them are that unintuitive.
    I have no problem using the Sony menus, I of course know them after years of use. But the original design, from an objective perspective, compared to other cameras and devices, is absolutely awful.
    In a world where UI and user experience is a key element when designing products the Sony menu is a joke.
    @Robert Collins makes a good point about how reviewers is a good measure of how bad the menus are. If people that try out all kinds of different cameras with no issues and ease, still have to point out Sony as a weird example.. then it probably is.
    Sony makes lovely cameras. But like all brands there are some downsides as well.

    I always ETTR on the BMCC/BMPCC but not on the new BMPCC4K. I used the native ISOs and tried to get as close to the final exposure as I could in camera. With the new color science it's been a winning concept for me.
    I still have never been able to create any type of "blue sky macro blocking", and I've owned two separate units.

    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

    Would you mind clarifying how the slowmotion works? Google only serves me people who guess or start their sentence with "to my understanding"..
    What is the highest frame rate in HD, without crop, where you can still manually expose your image?
    This is something that actually could tip the scale for me.

    IMO, It's not as accurate as MF, doesn't understand when you want to track something else, can't change speed without digging into the menu, doesn't work on manual lenses, messes up your grip, the list goes on.
    Again, no excuses, just don't care about it working or not. My workhorse is equiped with the best video AF there is. Never use it.
    I haven't seen anybody make such excuses.
    I know perfectly well how it works thank you. Btw, you don't get to dictate why others reason the way they do. No one said you weren't allowed to wish for good AF in the Panasonic. You can wish it to give you a golden shower for all I care. We just have our opinion on it.

    Personally, the A7riv is the first interesting model since the original A7. So I'm not hating on it. I actually wish I could justify the cost..
    ..But...
    Hilarious irony for someone who has been told a million times that I'm an idiot for shooting a camera with 2016 video specs.. only to see Philip Bloom of all people point out that the Sony flagship is using 2015 video specs.. I spilled my coffee laughing.
    (And to be fare to Canon, it at least has 400mbit and 10-bit out with it's 2016 specs.)

    It probably will. Because it is easy on all Sony's imo. Just time consuming like you describe (minor desaturation of colors × 1000 images per day = gray hair).
