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 know this has been talked about before, SD-Cards, just curious. Technically I can shoot 8.5min of 4K DCI RAW 30p with this correct?

With the new BRAW codec, you shouldn't need to record onto anything other than SD cards. 

BRAW Uncompressed is 550MB/s (30p) and I think if you want to shoot 4K 60p in both 3:1 and Q0 you'd have to use CFast or SSD.

with BRAW - the blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k maybe the best smallest cinema camera ever made.

I am curious to see dynamic range, skintones and motion and low light capabilities.

After taking the new Ursa Mini Pro with BRAW for a turn - all the limitations - the low iso, the magneta shifting, the dead skintones - all have been lifted from my eyes

My sentiments exactly.

It seems to me that this camera is going to just get out of the way of the creative process from shooting (good monitor, hopefully good audio, great low light), to editing (low bit rate for ease of playback of multiple video streams), to grading (RAW and recall of the camera shooting settings, and good color science).

Blackmagic has removed the issues that get in the way of me just getting out and shooting and editing.

Dynamic range is a question I would like to answered as well...
