Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

Recommended Posts

Just received word from Hot Rod Cameras that only 50 cameras have been shipped to the US. ( I assume these cameras were all demos for the stores ) as Hot Rod Received one. They did tell me that they have been promised that some of their ordered cameras will arrive next week some time.

Whoever comes up with a proper battery grip for this camera, will sell as many grips as there are cameras. Let's hope a Chinese manufacturer like Neewer or Meiki who make grips for Canon cameras can come up with a grip themselves that follows the form of the Pocket4k!

Hell by the time you put a battery grip, a SSD, a mike, a cage, ND filters, oh and you Need a Gimbal because it has no IBIS, a wireless focus controller because it has no continuous AF, you might as well carry around a Arri Alexa!

Hardly, a pocket 4K probably won’t cost more then 4000$ fully tricked out with every possible accessory.

One of the best things about getting a P4k from CVP is the fun one can have dissolving all the packaging bits (like tasteless Wotsits for those who know such things).

In a 8Sinn cage it’s certainly quite large - just searched my wardrobe and definitely don’t have a suitably sized pocket.

Right... initial review done so I’ll attach a lens...

Which 8sin did you get? I’m looking at the half cafe with Scorpio handle.

The full one but without a handle. It provides good all round protection and sufficient bits to grip (albeit with the handle that’s not so important).

The three function buttons are not as convenient (given the cage) as they might be but I suppose it’ll just take some getting used to.

I do have nato rail handles so will probably fit one.

The menu system is fabulous.

You're clearly not searching hard enough.

Nowhere near big enough!

Did you see what Jim (yes, that Jim) has done for the titanium Hydrogen preorders? Now that is a “big pocket with long arms”.

I never said it wold cost more, it will be damn near as big. This is suppose to be a POCKET camera, not a Cinema Scope camera. And for 4 grand you can buy a real Cine camera used.

a comparison between the Pocket 4K, Arri Alexa and GH5. (mostly for skin tones, dynamic range)

 

He had another video saying how he wouldn't review the eos r. I think after seeing how bad he missed focus here he might want to give that another thought. The skintones for the gh5 look pretty bad imo. Not sure if it was because of the LUT he was using.

Yeah, right. And since they're about the same price, that seems like a no-brainer.

Where the hell did I say Anything about a price? It is about the size! Price is irreverent. If I was rich, I kind of used to be, even a Arri Alexa LF wouldn't cost me shit for money compared to what I make. You act like everyone is poor as hell.

The GH5 is crippled when shot in V-LOG and the standard Panasonic LUT as it's designed for the varicam and not the GH5. Better to use HLG and Resolve color management to convert to REC709 (with all 3 cameras infact). I'm also not sure how relevant 3 stops under and over are to real world shooting as I doubt even the most cack-handed operator would get exposures this wrong but at least it proves what you pay for with the Alexa. It kind of confirms what I though though that the GH5 is not going to be significantly out performed by the P4k as long as you expose and WB it correctly and use the 10 bit 4.2.2 codec.

LoL, that could apply to a whole hell of a lot of cameras that are out now, and have been out for 5 years or more.  Camera operator skill.😄
