    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    FS7 does it too and it's a quite popular camera. Don't blame it all on Blackmagic. It might have to do with the frame rates. All Sony mirrorless cameras can't record in Pal and NTSC on the same card. There must be some kind of software limitation. It's like the clips you can't delete. At first you think it's poor ergonomy, and then you discover there are reasons behind it (for safer media for recording in the second case). But i'm no engineer, maybe someone more qualified can chime in and tell us more about it.

    I WILL be getting a Fuji X-T3!

    How do you lock the auto white balance with the X-T3 ? Nice feature ! and it’s a shame that the natural live view has auto white balance and you can’t preview your custom WB. It defeats the purpose 😕 but the preview is nice though, so much better than sony’s view assist. And it would be great if it didn’t go away while recording. It seems to be designed more for photography than video. Hearing about allo your QC issues with the X-T3 is worrying ! I guess I had the chance to get a good copy. It’s funny to hear about the flimsy built quality because I used the BMPCC 4K these last days so when I had the X-T3 in hands, I told myself how robust it feels ! It’s all relative 😂

    Does it ? Because I haven’t found it in the menus. It’d be nice to have a view assist or at least to be able to change quickly from flog to other film simulations to get a better idea of what you shoot ! And although colors and footage are gorgious with this camera, I agree with snowbro, sometimes skin tones look a little bit waxy (the fuji illness...), with not many shades. And thanks for the LUTs, they work great ! Just like the fuji Wide DR lut but without crushing blacks and blowing out highlights !

    I WILL be getting a Fuji X-T3!

    Hi guys ! I’m about to buy a Fuji X-T3 and wanted to know if someone tried to record 4K at 400 mbps on a sandisk extreme pro SDXC UHS I 95MB U3. You know, the common ones recommended for sony 4K. I know it’s better to have UHS II cards but since i manage to record Prores HQ 4K on those with my bmpcc4k and i have a ton of those cards, I wanted to know if there’s a possibility my cards would be enough ! Has someone already tried it ? Will fuji prevent me to chose 400mbps in the menu if I don’t put an UHS II card like sony does ? And if so, do you have suggestions for a good cheap UHS II card that would do the job ? Thank you !

    Pocket 4K Aperture Value Issues

    I don’t own native lenses. It was with the canon 24-105 and the Viltrox EF-M2. So with an adapter indeed. BTM_Pix seemed to have the same issue with mft glass though 😕

    Pocket 4K Aperture Value Issues

    The oldest available. 2.3 if i remember correctly. IS is still greyed out but if you turn on IS on the lens, you can hear it work and stop when turned off.

    Pocket 4K Aperture Value Issues

    None so far ! Yes, it is almost accepted first BM buyers are like beta testers. But it’s actually quite puzzling. Even though I have sympathy for this brand, it’s not professional to release a camera not finished. It reminds me of my first minutes with my RX100 V. I was only browsing menus and then I had this overheating warning almost right away during my first clip... Shocking !

    Pocket 4K Aperture Value Issues

    I also noticed a weird aperture behavior with the 24-105mm and the Viltrox EF-M2. I didn't notice it when I was using the lens with the latest firmware of the adapter (although it could have already been there!). Then I downgraded the firmware to get IS to work (nice find btw) and that's when I noticed it. Especially at the widest aperture, I had two different steps, showing the same F stop but different light gathering. And if I turned the dial too fast, I couldn't fully open the aperture. I had to go backward and close the aperture a bit and the turn the dial more slowly to get the lens to go wide open... Weird... I thought it was an issue with the adapter, but apparently it is also present with native mft lenses as BTM_Pix said. It would be interesting to know if it occurs with every lens controlled with electronics. It reminds me of a bug where switching lens IS on and off with the BMPCC did change the amount of light on the sensor. The screen showed the same f stop and same iso, etc. but the image would go darker... I think it changed the aperture. There was a work around, you had to turn IS off and then on, only when the camera is on. Don't even know if they fixed it and if it was metabones adapter's fault or the camera's.

    This is great news ! Did you actually try it yourself ? I was afraid the rear element of the speedbooster would hit the glass protecting the sensor !

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    Hey Andrew ! I made a review of the camera ! I tried to stay impartial and to put as much footage as possible in it and not just filming myself just talking about the camera. That's actually what made me do this review in the first place. I can't take it anymore : people talking about something in front of a camera with no footage to show. If you have time, I'd really like to have your input on my review ! Cheers ! (I'm sorry to for the repost )

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    Thank you ! It is nice to hear, especially coming from someone I always enjoy reading ! Yes I'm sure the camera can endure shocks but I won't try it either ! Blackmagic could surely offer a "my menu" tab, but the whole menu is so clean and simple, I don't even know I would use it ! Anyway, I had so much more to say about the camera, but doing it in english was so exhausting haha, so I tried to keep it simple. In french, I'd probably freestyle for hours about the camera !

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    My review is finally online ! I hope it will help people and answer a few questions ! Let me know what you think of it ! It took me so much time and yet I just have shaky footage to show... I'll shoot something decent soon, a real project !

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    Hello guys ! Hopefully, you'll have my 15 minute long review of the camera this afternoon. The upload crashed last night. It was a long time I hadn't create a YouTube channel, I forgot the pain in the ass it is to deal with YouTube ! (same goes with FB!) You can change the name of your channel but it takes days to appear, same with photos. Also once you put a background image, you can't have none anymore, etc. You shoot and edit a review that took you weeks and you just can't upload it easily. Boy was I mad at YouTube in front of my computer yesterday ! With all the recent/not so recent Vimeo issues as well (not able to load a simple fullHD video without a scandalous wait! policy changing...), we really need another video website to enter the game. This monopoly is just unbearable and counterproductive. And the overall management of YouTube reminds me of MySpace. If YouTube is still here, it is only because there's the only one on the market (not even talking about the dreaded Dailymotion website and app ). Fiiiiouuu ! Sorry for the rant but it felt good

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    I’ll try tonight. I already did but the glass element wasn’t rotating. I might have to use more strength... I’ll also do a test with a simple adapter, no focal reducer. I’ll keep you posted.
