Processing power?

When using waveforms in an NLE it does add a performance hit on the CPU/GPU so maybe this is a factor. I'd like to see an RGB parade as well for the very reason it makes ETTR easier. Zebras are usually linked to the green channel so it's quite possible to be clipping red or blue channels and not be aware of it.

I don't recall as I didn't use it much, but did Canon's camera take a massive battery hit when using Magic Lantern's Waveform?

not an engineer, never shot with ML.

Panasonic said they couldn't implement focus peaking on the GH3 and Fuji said they couldn't add zebras on the X-T2 because of the lack of processing power.

If the P4K doesn't have waveforms now, it doesn't necessarily mean they don't plan to add it in a future update if possible.

Not battery drain. It takes processor cycles to display a waveform in real time and the more complex ones that have 3 channels presumably the most. Resolve can start to skip frames with the RGB parade up so I'm just suggesting the lack of scopes may be a physical limitation and not a deliberate choice / crippled feature?

Sorta autofocus* (if/when accurate) multi-focus points seems pretty enough to me (info minute 3:50):

* tap-to-focus is the most reliable technique for moving image IMHO where you can really select the subject to focus (random focus is pure nonsense)

Unbelievable. That BM Pocket 4K event was in Manchester.

If I had known about this I would have only had travel 30 mins and walk right in. Please keep me in the loop better in future Blackmagic, I have been waiting to get my hands on once for what seems like forever.

You mean DPAF, focus tracking, face and eye detect and continuous AF are all baloney? 😂

I always thought a follow focus was the most reliable and cinematic looking method.

I doubt it was a personal thing. Who knows who else was on the guest list, and how many deserving people were left off? 

BMD don't know you live half an hour away, and also won't notice the loss of one sale as a result of your cancelation.

If people don't buy this camera just because Andrew canceled his order and don't review it - then I'll be shocked. 

There will be thousands of reviews the day it's released. They may or may not be as honest and thorough as Mr. Reid's, but they will give a good enough picture of the product. I guarantee Philip Bloom will do a 45 minute or more video before the year is out.

If I want to buy something that's worth reading a review about, I don't really care who DIDN'T review it.

LOL!

Just wanted one hand on the camera, and a chat with BM when they are in the city I have clearly stated as "Location" under all 10,000 posts on this place. Not much to ask is it!? Not looking for a flight to Hawaii and twelve beers.

Good for you. But a bit more courtesy to your host would be nice.

Prick

Totally, didn't mean to offend. I was just surprised by what appears to be a knee jerk reaction. 

What I mean is, if I'm looking for reviews and see you or Bloom didn't review it, I'd just find someone who has, not look into the reasons why, or try to find out if you were planning a review soon. 

Anyway, I'll stop digging this hole. No offense or harm meant at all.

OK man. You've made your point. You don't care who doesn't review it. You don't care if an EOSHD review exists at all. As long as you keep using my forum for free information on the camera, you're happy, and to hell with the site itself and the people working hard to provide it you.

behind HDblog there is a large publishing company, very powerful in Europe, will have invited them for this ...

Sure, it is. I meant for these type of devices and one-man-show shooting style designed by and for the shooter/buyer.

AF related. They must have some kind of autofocus anyway.

We can call AF to the automatic follow focus tool going along with GH5, but we can't exactly tell the same as far as follow focus goes, hence manual focus technique, actually, is.

 

To my usage and taste too. Accurate tap-to-focus available on touchscreen is enough for me.

Well it appears Blackmagic would rather the usual shills got hold of the camera before the experts. A bit sad. I thought they were different. Patrick Hussey at Blackmagic knows who I am, did not even think it was worth getting in touch in the 4 months since NAB. I have been back in the UK for almost a year, but yes, still visit Berlin occasionally. Not that it makes a difference where I am based in this case - at the event were Italians and all sorts from around the continent.

I don't want lavish dinners. I don't want fancy events in Hawaii. I don't want personal friendships with a range of salesman. I just want a camera on a desk, maybe even as a courtesy, an invite to a meet-up when Blackmagic hold an event in my home city... organised by the Blackmagic UK people themselves based in Knutsford... whom are already familiar with who I am, what I do, and where I do it from, and are 1 hour drive from my home. In fact I have met some of the guys in person several times. That's all I need! It isn't much.

Pathetic.
