    Yeah I was around bombs and bullets. What have You done for your country? And believe it or not I probably hear about as good as you do.  I think being a groupie at your age might sort of be a problem. Suppose to give that shit up at like 15. Hey they were a good band, not great. Being in the Hall of Fame was a joke I think. But then the Hall of Fame is sort of a joke anymore.

    webrunner5 got a reaction from TheRenaissanceMan in Giving the BMPCC4K the same look as the BMPCC and BMMCC   
    Well sure, I think to stand a chance, the PK4 has to be shot in 1080p. I really believe that is why Arri never really wanted to go all the way to 4K on the Alexa is because it would have been too sharp. And I think the new Arri's have lost their signature look to be honest. I really have never like the Red output as of late. Too good. Even the original Red One looks better than the Red One Mysterium X. Same camera, so called better sensor, and it was DR and noise wise, but not looks wise. More resolution is not Always a good thing for a film look.
    But for Music videos, Doc, Interviews the PK4 is a Lot better than the OG BMPCC. And lets be honest that is where your money is if you are trying to make a buck. The PK4 is a great camera, it is, maybe amazing, but not for a grungy looking old school look. Nothing wrong with that. You can't have everything in one camera. The old no perfect camera thing. But 98% of the people will never know it. So the camera is a winner IF you can get one of them LoL. But sure I hope we all learn something here in this thread. Knowledge is a good thing. And maybe I will be proven wrong. Has happened a couple of times LoL. 😜
    I am sure this can be done pretty close. Look how good @icarrere did with his GH5. There are parts in it where you could believe it was shot on the old BMPCC.  He did a good job giving it an old time look. But it IS in 1080p. Probably one reason it looks so good, ehh to some bad LoL.

    Yeah but like it has been said, it is not desirable to add sharpening in Post. So I want the sharpest camera output and the sharpest lens hanging off the thing. If I Need soft that day put a filter on it, rub your greasy fingers all over it, or correct it in Post. But you can't get back what you never had. And then there is no consistency to using all these odd ball lenses if you need to change focal length.
    True Cine lens sets have the same T stop and the same look through the whole lens line other than extremes at each end. Some sets are all exactly the same diameter for ease of focus pulling rigs. There is good, valid reasons Pros use them. Rental Houses don't have a bunch of odd ball lenses in their inventory.
    Sure for Photo you can use nearly anything. You can spend 4 days in Photoshop fiddling with that one shot if you desire to. Video is a different beast. What good is having 50 odd ball lenses when you really only need 3 or 4 damn good Cine lenses. The total cost in this day and age is probably about the same.
    Even for Anamorphic I think the  Leica Summicron R 50mm f2 is a Way better lens to use than the Helios 44M 58mm f2. The Leica is in a whole different league.

    Almost all ENG cameras, even today, use a Monochrome eyepiece. It just has more distinction than Color does. Way easier to focus.

    If a 1000 Dollars separates you from the competition I think you need to rethink this industry. That is chump change. Not even a good Tripod, a good Anything, let alone great..
    Anyone that is half serious about making money can buy this new 6K camera and make it happen like it or not. Separates the men from the boys

    Oh I am Never going to say something bad about Greece. One of the most beautiful places on earth I have been too, especially the Islands.
    But big time video separates the men from the boys is all I am saying. You can't Give away what you had before is the problem. It goes to auction for 100 Dollars a Pallet. Pay up or go home. Sure some people work for company's on here. Imagine the money the company you work for have tried up in this stuff. Actually unimaginable money. Just think the money  BBC, ESPN, etc. has, and a few years later now it is outdated... It was 10 years or more ago before that happened when I was in it. Even then it was a Big deal. It got worse and worse. Now it is only a few years. Soon year to year. It is going to get really ugly.
    You are Never going to stop social media. There are too many 10 to 14 year old girls in the world. Good luck stopping them! They won't even pick up their clothes lol.

    You are not as smart as you think you are. Coming across as some highly educated person isn't always the best foot forward. You are the one of the worse people on here to understand. I have no clue what you are trying to say half the time trying to come across as Holier than thou.  I sure doubt I am alone. We are not all 5th graders you can impress on here. Grow up.

    Amazingly enough whether you believe it or not every state is really different, even laws wise in the USA. Different economy's, different language, different crops, mindset even. I live in what they call the Tri County Area. Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky is all within 40 miles of each where I live, Indiana is only 5 miles from me. And they are are all day and night different dialect, economy, outlook, education wise, even disposition wise. Not one state is the same. Amazing difference from some. None alike money wise. From filthy rich to filthy poor. Ohio is a Industrial state, Indiana , Kentucky is a farming state. Kentucky a lot poorer over all than the others  near me. It is what is is, And I love all of them. All are beautiful. on their own merits. I think Kentucky is one of the most beautiful states of them all to be honest.

    The market consists of different flavors, noone of the big companies I work for would buy any of the Pockets - ever, I personally, would/will buy one, and a lot of the smaller production companies already are delivering TV shows with GH5 and P4K cameras.
    I am spending big in sound because I am a soundman first, I am not a DP or cameraman, but I do have a production company that needs a small and "cheap-ish" new camera, it doesn't have to be about power struggle and dog eat dog and big fish eats small fish e.t.c I just need a small-ish and reasonably priced camera for the occasional and accordingly priced project. For bigger you rent anyway or co-produce with another company.
    Glad you've been here!
    P.S if they were squeezing an ND filter somewhere in there it would be a certain buy from me.

    Move on or die, you have been warned. I did this stuff 30 years or more. You think I have not seen this stuff happen before? Like this has Never happened? Get real. There are so many naive people on here it is scary. People in power could give a crap if you live or die, really. Plenty more Jackasses out there.  They will work for free to get ahead. NEXT!
    There is ALWAYS someone better than you are trust me. More hungry. That is who they will hire. I would never hire someone behind and pay big money. They are a loser. You live in a dreamworld down the road.

    1 important thing to think about is when it comes time to sell a camera, who's gonna want to buy a 4k only camera in 2023 when you can have a similar 6k body for the same or less. 
    I'm so stoked for 4K/6K/8K HDR to become the norm and for rec 709 1080/4k to die off

    4K is the new 1080p. I just don't see why you guys don't see this coming?? Jesus it is 2019, nearly 2020. 8K is going to be the new 4K. Move up or be left behind. This stuff is big boy toys.  Always has been. It will Never end. Sure it is cheaper than ever now, but to keep up, it is still not easy. Tech never stops, there is money to be had. Money is King.
    Like I have said, you young guys just don't get it lol. I have been through all this crap. Better IS better if you are making money at this stuff. Do you really think a Client would be content with you using the Pk4 over this new 6K machine?? I doubt it. If you can't afford an extra 1000 bucks why have you? That is reality. When they are paying out the ass they will look at your gear, trust me.
    Sure if you are doing this for fun buy a LX100 or a GH2. Even a EOS-M, etc..

    I wouldn't say your color grading skills are awful.
    Your client should have provided you with some sample shots / videos, just to give you something you can rely on when creating a look.
    Turns out you went for a subtle GHAlex look, which may not appeal to everyone, whereas they wanted simple, oversaturated, lively grade.

    They fit the Ursa line, so I don't see a reason they wouldn't fit this. They only don't fit speedboosters because there's extra glass between the mount and the sensor.
