    Ah oh well, still a nice camera. There is an Ursa mini 4.6k on ebay right now for just above $3000. If this drives the prices of them down more that would be cool. Though if the only upgrade is 300fps I don't see it being that big of a killer. 

    4.6k 120fps is the biggest upgrade imo....

    In short, Fran is not finished, which, again, the company accepts. Other camera manufacturers have probably taken orders for cameras which were less finished than this one. Even so, it's rather unusual to have started talking about reviews at this very early stage. It's fine for manufacturers to send out early versions of products with known issues highlighted as a work in progress. That's done all the time, and should continue. Fran, though, is really in a very elementary condition, with some serious issues, such as the very slow user interface.

    There is no XLR audio, no timecode, no SDI, no EF lens control, no LUTs, no genlock, no full-rate playback of high resolution material. There's much that's right about the camera-as-a-platform model, especially running a popular OS with good development tools, but, to be charitable, Fran is a lot of work away from realising the benefits of that approach.

    I don't think it is aimed at Pocket owners. At this price, if you have the P4K it'd be better to get the 5inch Blackmagic Video Assist that records 1080p as well. The UI between camera and VA is the same, the batteries are the same and you can record 1080 and 4K at the same time. - the Ninja V is overkill since the P4K doesn't output 4k, and the Shinobi is just a monitor (with great features).

    If you want a proxy then sure it would be a great fit... but how many users want that? The video assist is still great but I think a lot of users would take the 1000 nits and smaller profile of the Atomos over the  assist! 

  4. I guess they've gone after people that would want the ninja v with the pocket 4k... (obviously don't need the recorder). 

    Really in terms of price; I think under £350 would have been great but it still is unbeatable a this price!

    And while we're at it, Atomos would also have a big hit by doing an affordable EVF.

    couldn't agree more, seriously. People would be hot on a great evf, with less than zacuto prices ?

    looks decent. Cheaper body but very similar features for around £400 (no recorder) 1000nits, 427 ppi 5 inch. 


    Monitoring FeaturesLuma Waveform, RGB parade, RGB Overlay, Vectorscope, Vectorscope Zoom, Histogram,

    RGB Histogram, Anlaysis mode (Multiview scopes: Waveform, Histogram, Vectorscope), Focus Peaking,

    Zebra, False Colour, Blue Only Exposure, Zoom (1:1, 2:1, 4:1), SMPTE Safe Areas, Cinema Guides, Anamorphic Desqueeze





    The new multi tool 'analysis' seems like a great feature. It simultaneously shows the image, plus waveform, histogram, vectorscope and audio-level meters. In addition, there are multiple options inside each of these tools. This gives the operator a complete picture of what is going on within the image, at any time

    .braw will be invaluable because it gives RAW flexibility at prores file sizes. It also seems to create more organic detail than RAW, perhaps close to prores? I "want" it.

    Same guy shot this one. I'd seen this and really enjoyed it. I think the newer one has a more Kodak grade which I love. They're both great. I'm also a massive fan of the Southwest and desert. I'd shoot every single frame there if I had my way.


    Very nice! Makes me want to rewatch Breaking Bad haha!
