  1. I'm going to use with the new Pocket 4K vintage full frame manual lenses with Metabones Speed Booster XL 0.64x (Nikon to M4/3). 1. Tokina 28-70 f/2.8, with BMPCC4K (crop 1.9) and 0.64x booster it covers 34-85mm f/1.8. 2. Leica Summicron-R 50mm f/2. 3. And I would like to get Angenieux 70-210mm f/3.5.
  2. I understand their answer as they don't know exactly if their m4/3 0.64x XL Booster will work with the BMPCC 4K because they don't have a camera at the moment to make a test and don't know its specs to develop a new specific model of their Speed Booster for BMPCC 4K. I quote Brian's words (designer of Speed Booster) from the BMCuser forum (04-13-2018): BMPCC 4K have a sensor's diagonal 21.44mm. And from the Brian's words to make it clear: Metabones 0.58x BMPCC Speed Booster was designed to cover a 14.6mm. Metabones 0.64x BMCC Speed Booster was designed to cover a 18.2mm
  3. A couple of days ago I wrote to Metabones: "Will Speed Booster XL 0.64x m4/3 work with the BMPCC 4K or are you developing a new booster especially for the new BMPCC 4K?" Their answer: "Sorry! We still waiting a test with BMPCC 4K …."
  4. This is what I do now: selling Super 16 c-mount lenses which I used with the BMPCC and bought the Speed Booster XL with a full frame Tokina AT-X-Pro 28-70mm F2.6-2.8 (Poor man's Angenieux) and started to invest in a set of Leica R lenses.
  5. BMPCC 4K have sensor's diagonal 21.44mm. Metabones 0.64x for BMCC is not suitable for BMPCC 4K because it covers image circle 18.2mm only. Metabones Nikon G to Micro Four Thirds Speed Booster XL 0.64x have image circle 21.63mm. So it fully covers a new sensor of BMPCC 4K! Anyone knows image circle of Metabones BMPCC 0.58x Speed Booster? I think it is smaller that IC of BMCC.
  6. We suggest Blackmagic Design to add Super 16 windowed mode to new Pocket 4K camera.
  7. Yes, Premiere adds its own LUT on a RAW video so colors and contrast are not accurate.
  8. Stills from this video (exported from edited RAW in Premiere). There is some color noise but it comes from LUT, not from the camera.
  9. BMPCC, RAW with a cheap Meopta lens from the 16mm cinema camera Meopta Admira. Does it look cinematic?
  10. Here is a comparison of brightness of SmallHD Focus vs BMD Assist and it shows that they almost the same.
  11. I have recently got for my old Pocket a good power solution. It works more than 5 hours with this power bank powered by 5x hi quality 18650 batteries. You can also put it in a cell phone tripod mount to attach it to the camera. You need to get a LEMO connector to power a new BMPCC4K. 1. Power Bank 5x18650 QD 185-TY ($20.8) https://www.dhgate.com/product/18650-power-bank-case-battery-holder-output/388633847.html Size: 13cm* 8cm*2.0cm (5.1' x 3' x 0.8'). 2. 5x VariCore New Original 18650 NCR18650B Rechargeable Li-ion battery 3.7V 3400mAh ($14.7) https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/4pc
  12. GH5s sensor size: (19.2 x 13 mm) https://***URL removed***/reviews/panasonic-lumix-dc-gh5s-review/2 The BMPCC4K's sensor is physically larger than its effective size 18.96mm x 10mm.
  13. Cinematographers often use diffusion filters to make image more soft, film-like, less digital looking. So high resolution is not always the very important part of a good looking picture.
  14. I made a comparison of sensor sizes of BMPCC 4K, BMPCC, GH5s, Full Frame.
