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?

 

The Hoya PRO filters are in effect IR cut filters. I’m the same way that Firecrest, Nisi and Lee ND filters aren’t designated IR cut filters but work that way. 

The sensor is covered by the same low IR cut glass as every other BMD camera is. 

A regular ND filter will show IR pollution in the right circumstances.

Here is a comparison of YT vs Vimeo compression. It seems that diffusion filters can help to get less compression artefacts by masking small details in the image that will still be lost.

"Why do we need the same video posted 4 times?'

Yep. And "quoting" with the same image(s) over and over just makes the forum a constant scroll. Just a little thought before as to whether that's really necessary for clarity would help.

So I’m all prepared with batteries and media storage, but not an adapter for my lenses. Because I’m going from aps-c lenses I’m looking at putting in an order for the speedbooster Ultra .71. But I have a question to you more technically involved guys; if metabones did make a specific speedbooster for the P4K down the line, how much better could that be? The Ultra .71 already pushes the lenses capacity in regards to the sensors size no? So there wouldn’t be a point to even create a specific speed booster, am I right?

I am not one of the technical guys, but when I owned the Micro, I had an issue mounting a couple M4/3 lenses due to an extremely tight fit. So a P4K specific speedbooster may be introduced to reflect the exact mount and filter thickness of the camera.

After watching the Shanghai fishing video and learning that the filmmaker used the Turbo II, I would go with that speedbooster, at least temporarily, until we know for sure if Metabones will or won’t make a P4K specific speedbooster.

If you want to save a substantial amount of money but don't want to compromise on optical quality then get a Viltrox EF -M2. Infact get the M1 straight adapter as well and still have plenty left over! No point producing a specific focal reducer for the P4k as it's just a stock M43 sensor size and mount .

The Viltrox EF-M2 has issues with my LS300 though. The connections aren't right and keeps disconnecting the lens. Works like a charm on my GX80 though. Metabones non booster to EF works on the LS. Im hoping it works on the pocket, but only time will tell.

Speaking of time... Is IBC the generally accepted release expectation. BMD have said they have an announcement about this cam at IBC, and they've also said in the last week that they're still aiming for a Sept release.

so I think they'll either release it at IBC, or reveal the final, fixed date.

B&H has the expected availability date listed as 10/5.

That's typical B&H "expected delivery" nonsense in attempt to keep the orders coming in...  BMD are on record denying any involvement in giving them that date or any other date.  My vendor has spoke with the distributor, and they have no date as of yet but still planning for Sept for preorders.
