  1. How do WE react to the Z cam releasing Z Raw today?! How many cameras do we have to buy this year? Don't forget that they soon will release an 8K full frame camera nearly the price of a C200! As of the difference between the P6K and P4K on that tweet, first of all the Viltroxed image is a lot wider, the difference in depth of field is not that much, and the Viltrox is definitely not a Metabones.
  2. Do not know about IQ yet, I am going to have a rest for the next few days until the TV season starts next week (so I do not want to look at a bigger screen than my phone) but Z offers: ProRes/H.265/4K 160fps (it is good to have 120fps at least, I have only used 100/120fps twice!),240fps 1080p with no crop - no crop 1080p is a huge deal, still delivering and shoot 95% in 1080p, even though I am expecting more 4K for 2020, still a huge portion of my video projects will be 1080p. Just perfect to stick a NPF battery at the back, I really like the form factor and I am using the SmallHD Focus with every camera anyway, just can't stand 3-3.5" anymore and the Pocket needs an additional monitor, sadly. Nice aloy also, I am not a big fun of the plasticky Pocket. I also have those CF cards (actually 1) and now they have Zraw..if they drop a hundrend or 2 the next couple months they will be a no brainer.. Pocket has the color science and the free Resolve science, and 500-600€ less. Do they have a good servicing reputation in Europe at all? What do you do if you have a hardware problem?
  3. What's Zraw?! Another one, more tests, more decisions. Things have speed up quite considerably in video terms. Exciting times, and I do not want anyone to complain about it! Never we had so good video quality for so cheap.
  4. 1) I was wondering for actual physical size! I mean in centimeters, which one is physical larger! 2)I thought so.. 3) Is low light clearly better than P4K or similar? 4) cheers, that's good. No Braw at 4K not that good though.. I am in the process of choosing one or the other. I am leaning more to the P4K right now..
  5. I said specificaly "imagine buying a Canon C200 mainly for the Raw and EF mount", so I was really specific. There are 2 ways to use the C200 as it is. 1) a glorified C100. I do a lot of projects per year like this. Shoot 1080p and that's it. 2) cheapest internal raw with EF. The guys that we rent the C200 from do not even have the CFast cards for that! Never used it like this. I even bought one myself (ultra expensive Sandisk, half the price of the P4K!) and finally the producer went the usual 1080p (one of the worst investments I ever did..). In his video @DaveAltizer makes a similar comparison! (Great minds and all..) And now we are at it. @DaveAltizer I have some questions. 1) total depth of P4K+Metabones+X lens vs P6K + same X lens. What is the total depth? 2) do you believe the workflow is not ready yet? What about processing computer power for working with 6K footage? 3) low light performance. This is something a lot of people care to know. 4) except 6K, what other modes use all the sensor? Thanks for the good job, I really enjoy your videos! Edit: let's get real guys. A lot of people will take the 2495$ price, spent another thousand for rigging that, and still be less than half of what an EVA or C200 costs. These are real life sales over there and the money difference is substantial. A lot of people will do. Spending 7-8-9 thousands for cameras right now ia hard for individuals and they will thing again for spending so much when you have a lot cheaper but still capable options. I did a sound job for Singaporean TV a month ago and the camera operator here had the C200. The producer thought they were going to take 10bit! When they realize they were getting "prosumer" files they were shocked!
  6. The BM speedboosters do not work at all at other m43 cameras (Olympus, Panasonic, JVC, e.t.c). 4.1-4.4 for the others, 2.4-2.5 for Blackmagic. No, it isn't, but it is so small that you can really work around it. No flip/swivel screen either. Doesn't it have a touch screen? I didn't know that. We are very far away from a real one. It is just an announcement, while I have done a few P4K projects already so I know what to expect from ergonomics/menus/workflow. That is my point, if you are waiting for the next big announcement, it can take you easily to 2022. These Pockets are good enough for most things and they are available now. The 4K one is so cheap that it doesn't matter if you do a "mistake". Imagine buying a Canon C200 mainly for the Raw and EF mount a week ago, and now you can get it for 1/3 of the money and with cheaper media.
  7. Is it? Where did you see it? I am consider getting the X0.64 version for using my Samyangs.
  8. I know. Dont use AF anyway and I have shot a few projects with the P4K so I know what is capable of. Just trying to find another plus for the 6K to make me want to spend the extra 1300€, but do not see it happening. For 2000-2500€ I could be waiting for the FP, seems like a very well thought project, unlike the design and ergonomics of the Pocket cameras. Seriously, what they were thinking?!
  9. Yes, I know. I should say it is not exactly impressive, being native EF and all that. All these little things add to me going the P4K route. Just trying to balance everything, and the P4K is 70% to P6K 30% at the moment! The Sigma Fp is an impressive proposition also. Unbelievable size/weight and modularity. But if I wait for november (or whenever it is coming) for one, maybe the GH6 will be announced, then the Canon 90D, then the A7Siii, then the new BM, then the Sharp 8K, then the JVC LS3000mkII, then...you get the point!
  10. A strap! Damn..I have to get it now.. The AF at 04:07 is really terrible, it is really a MF camera, which is fine for me. I am doing 95% AF myself, even with C cameras. What do you guys think, has the P4K+speedbooster+lens less depth than P6K+same said lens?
  11. @Skip77 If you want to read my specific case you can read here M43 has advantages. Dual ISO and bigger photons improve greatly the low light capabilities. "There are just so many options with the 4K, I have a lens regain (X0.75), I can get the no-glass Viltrox (X1.9) for dead cheap, and maybe the P4K Speedbooster (X0.64) just to be safe for my wider primes. 1 lens almost 3 different lenses! Also, consider skipping the 6K resolution altogether, there will be a lot of 8K options in a year..better save the extra 1400€ for then.." I just bought 2 lavalier microphones and their accessories for 2000€, accusing people that are "too cheap" for this camera is a very silly argument. We shoot tv shows with GH5 cameras and the Oly 12-100mm by the way. M43 is great and alive.
  12. How much? What is the relevance Vs P4K 0.64 + 0.71 Speedboosters?
  13. On my 2018 OLED, 1080 from film is really beautiful. For me, HDR is much more important than resolution. Declaring something is dead, is over the top and maybe a little disrespectful! When we are ready for 8K, 16K will be there, which it will be amazing for VR worlds.
  14. The spectacular ones usually have humidity issues. Very difficult to shoot for a long period of time also. I have met this guy in Edinburgh festival. He became ultra successful later on. Great low budget cave film, I believe most of it is on a studio. https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0435625/
  15. If you would like, I can elaborate a little; Sensors are doing miracles these days. Higher ISO is not an issue anynore, in most cases. I mean, 3200 native is just an unbelievable number. When run n gunning I want a dependable lens with a good selection of focal lengths and IS, which is my first and preferable solution for stabilization (tripod, IS, monopod, gymbal, IBIS - in that order for me). I do also care for size and weight. Bigger productions include more people, for lower ones I am most of those people in one body! I already explained why my NX1+16-50S is alive and kicking. Just too convinient to throw away..also have 4 cameras in total and 8 lenses, so I am covered in most circumstances. When I shoot C cameras the EF have so many limitations for the price (95% of the time I use those though, because they are "industry standard" here from the C100/C300 popular days, so production companies ask a lot for C200/C300mkII + a bag full of L lenses). The UWZ is too short. Also, when you have 4f on such a wide and very short zoom, you can not really zoom in to create tele subject seperation. The 24-70mm is just not wide at all, 36 on a C camera, 38mm on a P6K/Canon APS-C. Terrible! 24-105mm 4f, could be, but still 36-38mm at the wide end, and for some reason I do not particularly like this lens. Too mediocre in everything for me. 70-200mm is good for tele anyway and everyone has to own at least one white lens! I have the 70-200mm 4f, because I am not crazy about 2.8 aperture anyway, and I really value weight and size, the lack of them. I bought the 18-135mm nano for a more convinient solution when I can not change lenses. I am thinking to get the EF-PZ1 (or whatever its called) mechanism to "emulate" a normal broadcast lens. It is not particular cheap though, I am not using the 18-135mm as much anymore (actually the one I own is still brand new!). For someone that want to go on the cheap: EF S 10-22 f/3.5-4.5 EF S 17-55 f/2.8 EF 70-200 f/4 L IS if you want white, or the exceptional 70-300mm nano. Nano is the most modern and fastest AF mechanism by the way, so these nano lenses have some extra value. For m43 the 12-100mm 4f is exceptional for me. A little more expensive than I would like, but it is a workhorse. It is only 4f, but you zoom in a bit and you can shoot portraits or details, wide open you have 24mm which is the golden focal length for me, wide enough for establishing shots and scenary and groups of people, such a versarile focal length. I shoot some car TV shows and this lens for fast action is Godsend. I am also waiting for a bag of Samyangs and have a set of FD (haven't used them for 3-4 years now) and a smaller set of M42 (mainly Pentax). And that is why I am tempted to go P4K more than the 6K! There are just so many options with the 4K, I have a lens regain (X0.75), I can get the no-glass Viltrox (X1.9) for dead cheap, and maybe the P4K Speedbooster (X0.64) just to be safe for my wider primes. 1 lens almost 3 different lenses! Also, consider skipping the 6K resolution altogether, there will be a lot of 8K options in a year..better save the extra 1400€ for then..
  16. At 00:35 clearly shows that P6K is deeper because of the mount. Pretty obvious, but BM didn't clear things out completely at the beginning.
  17. Have no clue, just copied the BM nunbers. There are proper tables and all in this article. https://www.newsshooter.com/2019/08/09/blackmagic-design-releases-pocket-cinema-camera-6k-with-ef-mount/#disqus_thread All these crop factors do not make our life easy, for sure. Also no 4K in Braw, and the full sensor is only for 6K. The P6K seems less and less appealing by the day..
  18. "The sensor is a 6K S35 23.10mm x 12.99 with 6144 x 3456 resolution. When shooting in 6K using the full size of the sensor the crop factor is 1.558x... ..now, as far as the sensor crop is concerned when shooting in various resolutions and frame rates, in 6K it is 1.558x, in 6K 2.4:1 it is 1.650x, in 5.7K it is 1.692x. The crop factor when shooting 2.8K and HD at 120fps in 3.388x." From the Newsshooter article. Sorry if posted before. As of the size "issue", I read that dimensions are the same, but I believe the P6K mount can be seen from the profile pictures and scetches that protrudes the hand grip (if I am using the right words).
  19. Ofcourse not. I never mentioned IS. I just said that I am avoiding the 18-35mm lens on most cameras because it is not wide enough for my style. Mind you that I still use the NX1+16-50mm 2-2.8f combo. Starts wider and goes almost as far as the Sigma with just 0.2-0.5f less, while 15mm more at the tele end, plus IS.
  20. B. For sure. 18-35mm is too long for me, doesn't match my style at all. If you do the X1.55 or X1.6 maths then is almost a 29-30mm, not wide enough.. For the P4K the Olympus 12-100mm will be my run n gun. For C cameras I use a lot the 18-135mm EF-S for run n gun.
  21. I doubt many clients even know that 6K exists! The next resolution will be 8K I guess.
  22. Reading a little bit more into the P4K vs the P6K dilemma, I tend to believe that the EF mount could be possible a disadvantage. I would prefer 1) m43 mount with variable S35 sensor a la JVC LS300 2) EF-M mount! Yes, I am for real. I am asking for an XC type of camera with EF-M mount for years and years. Perfectly adapted to EF also (same electronics I believe). I have a full set of FD lenses since my AE-1 days, does that mean that the EF mount is not a good option for me?
  23. The Avengers movie only, did something like 2.6 billions in tickets. You have no clue how big the industry is, and where, and how. https://www.businessinsider.com/avengers-endgame-box-office-might-not-surpass-avatar-2019-5 Edit: 4K is great, 6K even better, 8K even more, 16K angelic. I do not disagree with what you say, but the way you say it, and I would be glad to make a masterpiece in 720p, than a stupid iMax nothingness.
  24. Wow! Who chooses those words "no argument because I'm right", to start a sentence on an internet forum, or any forum for that matter !! Indeed, Netflix requirements is a very popular topic, and not only in this forum. Funny thing is that people worry too much about the requirements, and not for the fact that they won't ever produce anything worthy of Netflix distribution, even though it seems like they are accepting almost anything these days. Netflix is just a bleep in the the whole industry worldwide. ..and this is a thread about a 6K camera by the way!
