  1. I've been wrestling with the idea of selling my C100ii since I've loaded up on too many cameras. I also have a GH5, G9, BMPCC4K, and just bought a BMPCC6K. The issue is that while there is a fair bit of overlap in many of these cameras, none of them have the total package of the C100ii—the ND's, Dual Pixel AF, built-in dual XLR, EVF and flip screen, fantastic low light, incredibly light but still quality codec, dual card slots, battery life for hours, etc. etc. etc. At the end of the day if you can afford to keep the C100 and still get the BMPCC4K, I think you'll find value in having both
  2. Super long shot here, but here it goes. I'm looking to trade my Blackmagic ATEM Mini Pro (plus cash) for a ATEM Mini Pro ISO. I've had my Pro since the early days and absolutely love it. It really is fantastic! But, since the beginning I wished it had the ability to sync up clips recorded in camera with the streamed video for later editing and 4K output in Resolve. So, I when the ISO was announced offering exactly this I was both excited and disappointed that the Pro didn't have these features. So, if anyone happens to have purchased the ISO and for whatever reason wants to "downgrade" to
  3. This is truly amazing testing @Andrew Reid! I was honestly skeptical in the very, very beginning that Canon could possibly fake the camera overheating as a means to cripple it and protect the cinema line. But, wow. Using their own tools and measurements shows the damning truth. Your test results should be used as exhibits A-Z in a class action lawsuit. Truly sad that Canon thought they could pull this $hit.
  4. I feel I'm stuck. I ordered Pro and waited about 6 weeks for delivery. I actually built a little segment of my business around the functionality it gave me. Now, the ISO version presents me with a super useful and sought after feature I've wanted since I got the Pro, but long after I could return the Pro. Also, I can't really even dump the Pro in favor of ordering the ISO since I need it for my work now. Choice is great. I just wish I had this choice when I ordered the Pro!
  5. I have to admit I'm a littleeeeeee bit salty over this new ISO version. I definitely feels like a feature they could have thought to add to the Pro at the time of launch. Getting too segmented with this weird release schedule is a way to start pissing people off. This should have been put out in tandem with the Pro.
  6. I'm seeing so many "Is the BMPCC worth it in 2020?????" Youtube videos lately. It seems every year there's a resurgence of people realizing how amazing that little camera is. I still regularly (well COVID hasn't helped) use it as a B or C cam. The footage is so thick with a wonderful grain structure natively. Sharp, but not sharpened. I decided to film a little test today with my new flapjack light. The BMPCC footage cleans up so well and looks amazing when superscaled.
  7. Scale might have something to do with it. The larger camera manufacturers need more sensors on demand (or at least consistently) to keep up with their larger production runs compared to say Blackmagic. We've become accustomed to BM having supply chain issues because it's a sort of quirk of the company, but notice we don't see any of the major players really having the same issues. Not saying is just sensors, but maybe the principle applies across the board.
  8. Has anyone worked with the test footage yet? I've been playing around with it a bit and it seriously runs smoother than 4K ProRes in Premiere on my machine.
  9. Okay now we know you're trolling. Enough.
  10. It's okay @hijodeibn. You're in a safe space now. Tell us where BMD hurt you. Seriously man your beef with a camera company is hilarious.
  11. Feel free to move along friend. Others can use tools you don't personally like.
  12. I know you didn't ask me, but I see great use for this cam in stock footage and 4K interviews.
  13. Lol then take your money elsewhere friend.
  14. Exactly. It should make the camera relevant for years. 4K in 2020, 8K in 2022, and 12K whenever that comes. But honestly I see huge use for 12K capture of 4K stock footage.
