  1. 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):


    There are already two Speed Boosters dedicated for M43: The 0.71x Ultra and the 0.64x XL. These should work very well on the 4k Pocket (4kP?) The only reason I can see for custom Blackmagic versions is if the new camera repeats the sins of the old pocket camera by having a non-standard filter pack thickness. Going to a more extreme design than the 0.64x (e.g., 0.63x or less) is a non-starter in my view because I can't maintain the image quality expected from true Speed Boosters.

    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.

    Metabones M4/3 Speed Booster XL 0.64x was designed to cover a 21.63mm.

    I read in the info box over at YouTube that there was a problem trying to work with RAW in Premiere - is that still the case?

    Yes, Premiere adds its own LUT on a RAW video so colors and contrast are not accurate.

  3. 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.
