Maybe it’s because I’m using adapter lenses , but I’m having no problems with CA or distortion. 

I do have the cheap as chips MFT Meike 28mm f2.8 and that also works perfectly. Maybe wider, native lenses present a problem though

Only electronic lenses would have options to correct distortion in a Panasonic body. 

So your 28mm would look exactly the same on a GH5S or a BMPCC4K

The monitor is just not bright enough and also the screen is highly reflective so outside use is problematic without a hood or Loupe.


Kinda defeats the purpose of the MASSIVE monitor on the BMPCC4K then.

anyone would recommend a cheap (under 50 usd) external monitor that has small screen (around 3.5 inch)? i would use it for screen tilting only.


Under $50 is crazy too low! (unless you go DIY like @BTM_Pix and others have done)

As it is, I'm already astonished just how very very very low prices of monitors have fallen in recent years! 

Personally I'm liking my Lilliput A5 monitor quite a lot, it is a 5" monitor for only US$150

I want to buy a stabilized travel zoom lens for P4K (that also fits on my Canon 700D).

Dou you guys think the Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO lens + Viltrox Viltrox EF M2 0.71x would be a good combination (no vignette, etc) for P4K?

If I am right I should get around 12-200mm 2.4-4.4 with the speedbooster attached.

You should probably cue the X files music in the background because I have literally just bought a used one of these lenses about an hour ago as a general purpose lens for a few different cameras and put it on the BM4K!

My live report from the scene is no vignette, reports f2.5 on the short end and f4 on the long end. VC works and is surprisingly effective at the long end.

No AF though either one shot or touch.

I cannot tell you how much I'm looking forward to seeing this. I absolutely love a 80s film look. What lenses did you use ?

It’s actually a music video for the Plain White T’s. I used the Pocket 4k and RED Gemini. Lenses were Canon FD primes, and Sigma 18-35.

Cinemartin has a 5 inch for 95 EUR +38EUR shipping. Not sure about the quality though, I couldn't find any review.

Looks really good, love the vintage feel.

Out of curiosity, why did you choose to shoot with the Pocket 4K and Gemini instead of just one camera ? More coverage?

I used the Ronin S for quite a few shots w/ the pocket 4K. I also planned on using it for a car mount but ended up using the Gemini with that.

Sorry, your other posts didn't appear on my view (possibly as you are a new member I think so there is a delay)

I've just had a look at both sites and its doing the same in terms of emptying the cart when you try to check out whether its the lens regain or ND version.

However, on a hunch, on the European one I added one of their Amaran lights first, then added the ND (which is the only one in stock), then removed the light from the cart and it retained the ND in the cart when I went to the checkout as you can see here

Try that in the US store as it might be worth a go.

Other than that, try the contact page and message them about whats going on as it might just be a weird glitch (which it seems it could be judging by my basket trick).

 

manage to order this morning.

at this price it is worth the try

Bit of a strange one today...

Shot 10 clips in 120fps HD mode that when I came to review them later on in the camera didn't actually appear.

Selecting next clip in playback menu just bypassed all 10 of them and went to the next clip that it found that wasn't 120fps.

Checking the Cfast card and they are all there in their correct folders but the camera just doesn't want to play them.

Thinking this might be an undocumented "feature" that wasn't in the manual, I had a scout around and couldn't see anyone having reported or commented on something like this.

So I've just shot another 120fps clip and lo and behold this one plays back in the camera but the other ones still don't.

Very strange.

Anyone else had anything like this ?
