Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

Recommended Posts

Andrew, this community you've founded became huge and a vivid home for many of your readers to feel it like ours : ) The proof is the alive 24/7 camera forum (compare with others) we've found here with you and actually, a good sign of the strength of your reasoning for the subject matter (E : -)

What does this exactly mean? 

from cinema5d:

"While recording to an external media via the USB C connector, the images can not be captured internally simultaneously"

I assume it means you cannot capture to SD/cFast as well as SSD at the same time.

I still want to believe goodwill and good sense can always save the grace. The trouble is when people forget to listen the other side. You Andrew have spoken. Let's now hope for a better insight.

Without a little help of a friendly hand is harder to arrive there, that's for sure : -)

You'll only have one of those options: 1) internal recording; 2) externally via USB Type-C connector.

A little offtopic but I havent found the answer for this anywhere.

It does record 4K cdng 60fps, if 30fps is 272MBps, 60fps is 544MBps.

Most CFast and SSD dont write at this speed, how will this work out?

What am I missing here?

I'm gonna take a guess and say it can only do 4k60p DNG at 3:1. Not even the atomos inferno can do 4k 60p to DNG

That would be bad. I pre-ordered this to replace my Sony FS and Odyssey recorder, I can do 4K60 with it 😕

It does, thats why I wonder how BM would do it with only one ssd or cfast. My hope was dual recording to CFast and SSD, but looks like it wont.

Yeah, that stinks. Maybe we'll get prores raw at least. It's no DNG, but it's pretty close

To be honest, I think that John B has a point.  It really doesn't make sense for Blackmagic to give it's unreleased camera to reviewers.  It could hurt sales if there are issues.  Also, you can't get mad at John because you've kind of positioned yourself as a "blogger" / "reviewer".  In regards to his "butchered footage" comment... I mean... uuhhh... some of it was pretty bad. Blackmagic customers ARE entitled... Have you been on their forum lately??  The can 100% guarantee that the second the pocket 4k is released, a thread will be started called "Pocket 4K v2 requests".  Lastly, you're not promoting their camera.  You're doing your blogging duties by talking about the most anticipated camera of the year.   It does seemed rather presumptuous to think that they'd send you a camera because of that.  It sounds like you're mad that you don't get the credit/respect that you think you deserve.  This is life.  I think the biggest issue though, is that you are in a box now, it's a blogger/reviewer box.  If you want to be in a filmmaker/shooter box, changing that  is in your hands.

I understand the issue with the label but anyone who has been around here long enough knows Andrew can shoot.

So, should we infer that those stats here won't bring relevant sales for Blackmagic...? Is that so? The things we learn on these pages... : -D I wonder what some of these posters are doing over such lousy place, isn't it? ; -)

They did give the camera to reviewers. John was either wrong or lying.

Correct. Just want to do my fucking job.

It only sounds presumptuous if you aren't aware that this thread alone has 380,000 views, and the blog a million since August, and that I have been covering 'pocket' cinema cameras of all varieties since 2010 with the GH1 and was the first blogger to embrace Blackmagic's cameras when they came out in 2012. If you followed EOSHD from 2013 onwards you'd understand why it is an injustice. It's hard to explain this without sounding rather big headed about it, but that's the truth.

Well, you won't get the camera reviews you deserve if you don't support an honest reviewer. That's life!

I don't care about being in the pro box with lots of dull clients and a day rate.

I make my own films and music videos. You clearly haven't been following EOSHD for long enough to realise it and it's a really off judgement you're making, and not a very nice one if I may say so as well.

The ISO chart that they showed at that event that's on the Cinema 5D blog is interesting.   Seems as if the middle grey point shifts within the dynamic-range range.  I assume that's just for prores (and maybe raw metadata).

That would mean that besides simply giving more brightness it would be more of an image manipulation tool.  You choose the ISO depending on whether you want more range in the shadows or in the highlights.  Look at the difference between 1000 and 1250:      Goes from 7.8 stops latitude below and 5.3 stops above to 10 stops below and 2.3 stops above.   A small change in brightness but probably a big change in the look of the image.       Then with gradual changes going down or up from those points.
