In reading and responding to this post please keep in mind I am an amateur who only makes very little money shooting stock video. I mostly want this camera for hobby purposes. With the march to 4k in full swing (ie GH4, Sony FDR-AX100, BMPC 4k, Galaxy Note III, etc) where does that leave the BMCC? Is the BMCC a reasonable camera to buy used now or should people wait for more price reductions? I have always been averse to owning Black Magic cameras. Their lack of pedigree in the camera field and the delays and bugs scared me off. But at this stage if I could pick up a BMCC with Resolve for $1,500ish is this something wise to do? The reason I ask is of all the new wave of cameras to lauch in the last couple of years the BMCC seems like the cheapest to get up and running. I could use my ef lenses on it and SSDs have come down in price. $1,500 is still a lot of money but I could shoot the camera on day one just by adding an SSD. I don't need to shoot for hours. I mostly shoot 10-30 second clips. So there is not a pressing need for an external battery. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.
I'm curious what you guys think. Since it looks like there is a distinct possibility that the GH3 will indeed be inferior in video quality, what will happen to our beloved GH2? A boom in demand? Will retailers quickly burn through their backstock, only to see prices on the secondary market climb higher and higher? Or will the mainstream simply push ahead and leave it forgotten to the past? Pending the actual delivered state of the GH3, will anyone here go out and pickup a backup gh2?
