  1. Selling this BMMCC kit for $1000 USD. In great condition and includes SmallHD Focus which also serves as power supply and the One Little Remote v4 as well as a SmallRig cage. Love the image but for workflow reasons I’m moving to a multi Z Cam E2C set up as they allow integrated remote control and IP features. Will ship priority USPS in the US. Price excludes PayPal fees depending on how you pay. Thanks!
  2. Wow, it may sound sad but I’m excited about this. ? 24p was one of the main reasons I got an R over an RP (besides c-log). I might pick up an RP as a b-cam now. I didn’t see the new M6 mark ii mentioned but hoping it’s included.
  3. Ahh, so it DOES have 25p, but not 24p. I guess the 25p doesn't show for me because I have it set to NTSC. So that might an option to set it to PAL and get 25p. But still very odd to exclude 24p in 1080p 10-bit.
  4. @thebrothersthre3 @Vision well you get 10-bit 1080p in v-log BUT only down to 30p. So no 24 or 25p. Seems so Canon-like to remove those and I hope S1H doesn’t have that limitation.
  5. Don’t have my S1 in front of me but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t have 10-bit available in 1080p which was a big disappointment for me as 10-bit 4k h.264 doesn’t edit well in my MacBook. Hoping S1H doesn’t have this limitation.
  6. Interesting. I’m mainly an audio guy but wasn’t aware of that. That was my understanding too. It just takes two different exposures in quick succession thus the worse rolling shutter performance. Doesn’t RED do this too in their special WDR modes? As opposed to Arri where it seems that both exposures happen together.
  7. I’m curious why simultaneous dual gain sensor architectures a la the Alexa Alev III aren’t more common in smaller cameras. This allows a low and high ISO signal to be combined for one HDR image. It seems that in ten years most cameras still can’t match the Alexa for sheer video dynamic range, yet CMOS sensor technology has obviously evolved in many ways. Is there a limiting factor like size/heat, a patent, or maybe otherwise? Perhaps it’s just that the average consumer is more interested in increased resolution? We now are seeing the switchable dual gain architecture used more, but I’m not aware of lower end cameras using simultaneous dual gain.

  8. Good question. I believe it was also noted in the Newshooter S1H article when he referred to the “highlight bleed” in the blue channel.
  9. I thought part of the advantage of having full v-gamut was to avoid things like this. ?
  10. Amen. A lot of people rave about sharpness, but that is the exact opposite of what I look for in an image. It’s one reason I’ve enjoyed shooting on Canon over Sony (despite the disappointing lack of features in their lower tier cameras).
  11. That’s great. I hope it goes better than the Z6 has ?
  12. @deezid nice. I’ve never shot on a Varicam but I feel like the S1 v-log gets in the realm of that creaminess which i love so much in Varicam samples I’ve seen.
  13. @funkyou86 thanks for posting that! I have the S1 but not the Pocket. Which camera is on the left? That frame grab seemed to have a little more highlight info and/or smoother roll off in the window.
  14. Curious to see this too. Closest comparison I could find was S1 to EVA1.
  15. @mercer @crevice I'm getting a little over 3 hours of power with the large NPF batteries running through the SmallHD Focus, One Little Remote v4, and the Micro with a Metabones Super16 Speedbooster attached. Not sure what actual record time will be like, but that's pretty impressive.
  16. Camera maxes out at 1600 ISO. I've only shot a couple test clips so far, but the noise seemed lower than I expected and very fine and pleasing in RAW format. Haven't tried noise reduction yet. @BenEricson "glossy" is actually the perfect description for most of the modern 4k cameras. I like how the older Blackmagic cameras with the Fairchild sensors have a characterful imperfection to them. To me they look a little more vintage vs modern.
  17. Will do! The seller told me he got a couple hours on the larger batteries. They actually designed the micro HDMI port in a clever way. It’s recessed at a diagonal angle in the bottom corner with support walls on either side of the inlet that seem to be custom fit to the cable connector so that the plug is secured and is prevented from getting stressed at the actual connection. Pretty cool.
  18. Just got my Micro rig and powering via SmallHD Focus works perfectly with the DC coupler dummy battery.
  19. Ok good to know. Might stick with the Sigma for now then. Curious to compare the 3:1 to lossless raw. Couldn’t find many comparisons online.
  20. Interesting. I thought Alicia Robbins said it would. But of course hers wasn’t a final model too so a lot of features may be TBD.
  21. Will do! Yeah, I’m excited to try it out. I might end using the CineEye instead of the Focus so I can remotely monitor and control from the OLR app. I picked up a speedbooster but thinking the Lumix 12-35 might be nice for having OIS as none of my Canon primes have any.
  22. Yeah, apparently. I didn’t realize that either. Look at pic 6. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323866768893 I confirmed with the seller as well.
  23. Thanks. I just checked Amazon and it seems that my 2016 Sandisk card is supported but the 2017 one I bought has the SDSDXXG prefix. Can’t physically tell them apart so guess I’ll just have to test. The rig I bought has a SmallHD Focus that apparently can power the camera from the monitor’s NPF, but I may end up getting that adapter too. Thanks for the tip!
  24. Okay @crevice I just pulled the trigger on a Micro rig with the One Little Remote on eBay. I’m blaming you ??
