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 note some error from your keyboard though, Don... you mean "...Arri Alexa image quality..." instead? LOL ; -)

Yeah you know I think with some skill it might not be too far off. I know the bit rate is lower even in Raw. But there is nearly enough info there to make some damn good stuff happen.

Think about it. We have seen Very little footage with a Speedbooster on one. That ought to kick it up a notch as they say. And a couple of nice Cooke Anamorphic PL lenses hanging off the SB. Hell away we go. Andrew ought to be able to make that happen. Hint. ?

Not sure if you guys have seen this one yet. It's long. Skip here and there through it if you like. I've personally shot a LOT in the desert. This is what it's supposed to look like. I shot with multiple different cameras including the BMPCC and it looked very similar. Personally I think this camera is all it's cracked up to be, the physical quirks aside which will eventually get remedied.

I agree this does look really clean. I think the flat grade also gives it more of that look that a lot of people associate with the bmpcc, but that's not really where that camera thrives. 

What's happening here with the highlights on the hood and the sky through the tree edges? Chromatic Aberration? Blue highlight bloom on the power line too.

Just found out I'm next in line at Hot Rod Cameras! Getting pretty excited. For those who've used it, does the Viltrox .71 work well enough or is it Metabones or nothing? Sorry if this was answered in another thread. I tried looking around a little, but figured id just go ahead and ask since some have probably had more time to use it.

I've used the Viltrox EF-M2 exclusively and it works great. You will loose an AF abilities the lens has, but I understand that's also the case with Metabones too. 

I assume you're not buying this for AF anyway, but worth mentioning just incase.

Pocket 4K tap-to-focus feature is actually unusable so better to accept manual focus as mandatory in this camera.

"Maybe someone should take the insides and make a proper re-housing with a proper F battery instead of the Canon"

Given the many non-Canon devices using this battery format, there ought to be 3rd party folks making various capacity compatible batts as is common in Sony style. The LPe6 has lots of room to grow in depth and capacity.

Make it so.

(you too Mr. Petty)

22 minutes later... WOW Say then to @John Brawley & @CaptainHook (I'd really like to address it to Grant Petty as well, but I guess he has already been informed directly and through his brand reps too ; ) this site doesn't sell cameras... Sure not... How have so many units been sold anyway...? ; ) I presume because of tap-to-focus feature, correct? LOL : -)
