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

The article also reads, “it’s been designed to be handheld,” rather funny, because best results will be had shooting on a gimbal, tripod or other support. 

Still handheld even if you hold it up on a gimbal or even monopod for extra weight, no? 😏

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.

The author of this video "Bubble Gum" answered that he didn't use any IR CUT filters. Does it mean that there is not IR pollution in the BMP4K and we don't need IR CUT filters anymore?

Do you need to use a IR cut?

I used Hoya Pro NDs. Didn't see an IR.

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

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.

@DBounce for the last several months you've been preparing us all for some major omissions from this camera's promoted specs. At this point do you think BM has delivered, or is it still too early to tell?

@Jonesy Jones Honestly, the footage speaks volumes... I'm happy to report, thus far I am loving what I see. The battery life was as expected. I owned the original pocket, and loved the output, so this is a big step up from that in many regards. Better on camera audio support is welcomed. I want to mount this to the Ronin S... something tells me the two will be a good match. This camera has  that something special. In all honesty, my girlfriend saw the footage from the new Canon Eos R and said, " I don't like it",  but after reviewing the footage from the P4K immediately proclaimed how good it looked. I think even if there are a couple small omissions, the price more than compensates for anything that didn't make the cut. I like the new pocket 4k. I think it will be a great travel, and gimbal camera. It's also affordable enough and unassuming enough not to have to worry about unwanted attention. 

Sorry for the long winded answer... But to the point... So far it looks like we are going to get what was promised. Now the only question is when? Oh and the elephant in the room... what does this mean for GH5S owners? Given it's low resolution stills, it limits the camera to video only... And in all honesty the Pk4 looks to have it's lunch in the video department. Also with a new full frame Panasonic around the corner... 😖

One hell of a month!
