    Skip77 got a reaction from dslnc in Blackmagic to announce new camera related news at 12 noon PDT (8pm London)   
    It seems like GH5 and P4K owners love to tinker with the adapters and metabones this or that. All trying to see how one lens works and gives you the best picture and results.  On one side I understand this because you want to get more from your camera.  I have the same mind set and we all do. But that's a big waste of time if you think about it and it limits what you can do. 
    The P6K gives you a full frame look right out of the box compared to the P4K. 
    The m43 sensor is the bottle reck with the Gh5 and P4K and owners of these cameras know it.  You can argue all day that it's not but APS-C is the sweet spot for sensors. You's go from APS-C to Full frame and not backwards.
    The P6K will do better in low light. This happens when you move up to a bigger sensor. The P6K also has better processor and gives you upgrades across the board in what it can produce.  Yes the P6K and P4K can work perfect together and that's great. 
    It sucks for P4K owners because they might have waited or bought the P6K if it was released together with the P4K. 
    The Canon to m43 metabones adaptor is $649 -  How do you justify that when that closes the gap to the P6K?  Once you let people know the real cost of adapting lenses for the P4K they cost is much closer to the P6K.   
    The P4K is still a great camera for great price but the m43 put a lot of people off including me.  
    If I get the P6K and 3 EF Canon prime lenses, then I have invested in glass that I can use on the RED and ARRI systems or the C200.  
    You say this but you claim to have pre-ordered the P6K.   Why did you do this if the P4K is the better buy and just as good?
    Read my comments above and you will get educated.  The speed booster cost alone with getting away from the m43 sensor is worth the upgrade from the P4K.  This is easy to see unless you don't have the funds to afford the P6K. 
    The Canon to m43 adaptor is $649, right?  The math says it's not the better buy and you have issues with speed boasters and m43.   
    You guys should argue and justify your P4K purchase. I would but it's also why the P6K sucks for P4K owners.  Good luck unloading that P4K for close to what you paid. No one talks about the price being so low that resale value will be next to nothing.  ( This is if BM keep producing the P4K in numbers that keeps it form being back ordered). 
    People jumped on the P4K for the price and knowing nothing would come out to match the cost to value. That's changed with the P6K.  
    And no adding adaptors is not what 90% of people want to have to do.  The only reason to do it is the m43 is limited and this makes up for it's shortcomings.

    Interesting. 
    I speculate this.... Apple wants to sell a shit load  of Mac Pro’s by putting the power of ProRes RAW and FCPX at the core of pro workflow. So they want more pro cameras with ProRes RAW capability. RED have said “you can’t” so Apple have said “erm...we will”, as Apple wants the pro market, no matter what. 
    Just for fun of speculation, I hope Apple get ProRes RAW clear, more cameras shoot with it, RED make their cameras more affordable (Komodo?) and Apple allows RED to use ProRes RAW as part of the deal. 
    For what it’s worth, the RED image is awesome and REDcode is awesome - so I hope it’s a case of “everybody wins”, whatever happens.

    You only have to use Resolve for color grading, then edit down and transcode the footage out to ProRes HQ.  Then FCPX or PP.  
    It's not the issue most make it out to be. 
    Resolve has killer color grading set up that blow FCPX and PP away.   But for editing Resolve is not fast enough for me. 
    And I love FCPX.

    I found this on a site about h.264 license.  
    Q: Is it safe to use such patented algorithms?
    A: Patent laws vary wildly between jurisdictions, and in many countries patents on algorithms are not recognized. Plus the use of patents to prevent the usage of a format or codec on a specific operating system or together with specific other software might violate antitrust laws.  So whether you are safe or not depends on where you live and how judges interpret the law in your jurisdiction.

    No problem bud.
    My original statement was easy to understand.
    It's great you're in the m43 camp and will defend that camera and mount all day long. 
    But lots of people welcome the P6K and see the advantages.  It boggles the mind to think a NEW BM 6K camera can be released and at the same time has this group of m43 P4K owners have horrible, mean spirited, non factual and brutal half a page long comment on why the P6K is not for them.  It's like the P6K is the enemy and they have to tell everyone not to buy it.

    Since reading comprehension I lacking with you I'll clear this up.
    I think (EF mount is better) and have seen better argument for EF mount and lens for the P6k then the other way around.  
     
    Did you see more detail in the P6K?  Most side by side comparisons show the P6K resolves more detail.  Other then that the image quality looks identical ( the P6K does look better in low light even though other have said the P4K with booster would be better),

    What Sony and Nikon models are you looking forward to?
    MFT lens won't cover the APS-C sensor, right?  
    I think and have sen a better argument for EF mount and lens for the P6k then the other way around.  MFT P4K users are more vocal but the side by side samples sow better detail and clarity on the P6K EF mount.  You can't get detail back if the P4K can't capture it. 
    The P4K looks great until you compare it to the P6K.  (detail wise).

    Last time I checked Sigma Primes, Canon Cine Primes, Zeis, Rokinon and others are EF mount.  
    The test so far show P6K with EF mount out performs the P4K with speed booster for resolving clarity.   Look at the videos comparing the two cameras. 
    I'll say it again the EF lens options are limitless based on choices and quality.  You need more lenses and quality then you need your head checked.  
    Why are you so triggered?  This is not a political board or discussion.   You don't know my world views or political views. Let me guess you're not an American and don't like America or Americans.

    Hey I responded in kind as one.  
    How does EF mount have less options? 
    The lens options are endless and for serious cine shooters EF gives you options that you can build around.  
    There's no extra cost in dealing with 6K footage. You like spreading false information motion don't you? If you're working with P4K 4k footage then you're not talking a hit working with 6k Braw in Resolve.  Resolve has CPU and GPU requirements that are the same for the p4K footage and P6K footage.  But keep spreading false info to make your case.
    It's been proven the P6K resolves better detail then the p4K.  This should worry you but you don't get it or have already made excuses for it. 
    The P4K is a great camera and no need for you to justify your P4K purchase unless you feel threatened.  You can keep your tricked out speed boosters and the issue it brings.  I know P4K speed booster users feel like they're beating the system and that they're smart using speed boosters to cheat the camera up to better specs, but most pro's have embraced the P6K because they see the advantages.  
    And if the additional cost of the P6K bothers you then you really have no business owning the P4K or P6K. ( I paraphrased this from multiple users when they said it too me).
