My dear erstwhile member can you please stop attacking John Brawley now. I have long since given up on camera forum arguments so might not be completely up on who is right and who is wrong-evil /

I like the pictures. A lot.  This camera will probably replace the micro cinema camera for me as it’s not much bigger and is much easier to work with.  I didn’t feel as strongly about the 4K

What a shame. Who are these "deep state" BMD insiders that are here pushing an agenda ? Myself and Hook.  Who else ?  What do you guys think, there's a plot and conspiracy ?  You guys don't wat t

I don't think the DNGs weigh anything

After some research on a film, data does indeed have a weight. All the data of the internet weighs about the same as a strawberry :)

On topic- After Magic Lantern on the 5dIII, raw/prores on this camera coupled with Black Magic's focus for a professional tool makes my next camera purchase easier to decide.

Having options is always a good thing, agree with that.

Exactly, I want the best possible camera, but also it is nice if it is a bunch of medium and low level settings underneath the top setting as well. 

This is one of the downsides of the C200, it didn't have that many options, just raw or 8bit

Oh dear they don't really understand raw or prores at all ,they think raw related to the 'film' profile and proress to 'video'. I suppose such a cheap cinema cam puts itself within reach of people that don't really understand what they are getting. Nice to see more articles popping up though

Hmm. Crappy.

Obviously Blackmagic didn't invite me to the hands-on. Pretty clueless of them not to.

I would have quite liked to have taken one on a shoot.

I do at least know what ProRes is :)

Still not a single info about the built-in audio mic quality.

This is on the article I posted:

"Either side of the lens are two mic housings which are home to four microphones, tuned for vocal pick-up."

"The BMPCC4K also has quiet audio circuits and a built in mini XLR, something that no alternative mirrorless camera has unless you purchase a costly add on device...."

But yeah, very little to go on for now.

Quite a nice hands on review on the usability of the camera:


Raw DNG untouched 4000iso:

Looks like they have ditched the Carbon Fiber body in favor of plastic. From the article.



It’s light

Picking up the BMPCC4K for the first time, and the light weight of it becomes very apparent, thanks to the new polycarbonate body.
