Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

Sure, even though the XT3 reports on lack of reliability should concern more than plastic because it doesn't look like very likely PRO... Sigh : -)

I've heard reports of Canon and Sony cameras dying abruptly too. I am not really worried though. I always bring back ups in case of such a thing.

I've heard of RED cameras abruptly going bad, its just the nature of tech IMO. If you really need 100% reliability you just have to be prepared for such a break down. I guess its always possible that your main camera and 2 back ups all break down, but its a freak of nature.

I'll definitely be getting the BMP 4K though I feel like it will be outdated in a short period of time. I guess that is the case with all cameras though.

Funny, I think exactly the opposite. This camera is already outdated from the scratch... Remember, it is MFT : D Well, to my eyes otherwise, it will be much hard to be beaten. To take the previous example(s), not even when BMD will launch a substitute ; -)

I never had a single problem with Panasonic gear BTW...

I guess that's why I don't mind to be called a Panny fanboy : -D

I was as well but I left as Auto focus wasn't good enough for me. Their bodies were really great though. Can't beat the feel and size of the GH5. The GH4 was really nice too.

The new updates definitely seem a lot better then before. Still can't compare with Sony or Fuji unfortunately. Its the old contrast detect system.

Source for (verifying) such bold statement? ; )

Prejudice?

It can even be true but what do you or we know on the subject matter?

I can't compare them... Can you?

Where's a fair comparison? And you or anyone else will be able to shut fanboys mouth then... ; -)

Really? So now prejudice or theory beat practice? Since then?

 

Post it, publish your findings or they are just coming from your keyboard. This applies from mine or someone else's as well : -)

None of the tests I've seen show auto focus that compares to Sony or Fuji. So there is no reason to believe a contrast detect system is going to magically beat systems that have inherently superior hybrid contrast/phase systems in them, especially in low contrast or back lit situations.

The last firmware I had on my GH5 was a lot better, usable at least. But its way behind the fuji.

Its not prejudice. A system with only contrast detection is lesser technology then one that has both.

And today? ; )

Well, 2 million dollars won't make that 100 bucks dinner less expensive than your million... ; -)

There is such a thing as a logical assumption. The XT3 has better high speed video then the GH5 or S, so I am content regardless.

Nothing against. Let's put our money where evidence is, though : ) I'd sincerely appreciate to see AF comparatives. People talk, talk but from theoretical presumptions... Facts are beyond that.

Sure, if someone shows the GH5 beating an XT3 or A7III I'll believe it. However just because panasonic releases a new firmware addressing auto focus doesn't automatically make me think its now operating as well as the two previously mentioned cameras. They've already made like 3 firmware updates addressing auto focus.

Indeed. Even though the results I've seen they have impressed me. They should be working hard to address the issue, isn't it? No GH5 here now. It only remains my four G7 units, so I am unable to see by myself. Hey, I am a believer, though! : -)

Very well @andrgl, it is the second time at least (I only recall my positive remark on Sareesh aka wolfcrow you certainly don't share) you downvote me from your customary reaction towards some members over here when you don't like anything, so I suggest you spill the beans this time...

I am all ears to see your visual : D and factual evidence that we can't have hope on Panasonic firmware updates or you will only downvote me once again instead...?

LOL : )

 

PS: Because if it is for my OT discussion with @thebrothersthre3 once you've downvoted his entries as well or you are virgin over there as we all : -D let me remind you something to our -- mine and his defense in behalf of the fact that P4K is the resurrection of MFT to mismatch the Northrup's death proclamation ; ) I see nothing but useful to not presume the Queen of the format (GH series) is already outdated. Even Fuji's for its price range and segment, let alone questions on reliability and so on, they also converge to be related to this new Pocket 4K camera, obviously (just my 2 cents, fellow : -)

Has anyone tried out the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 g2 with the BMP4K? Looks like the perfect combo for handheld stuff to me. I came across some footage a while back and it didn't look like there was much lens breathing either (sorry footage link lost at the moment).

I have this glass. Just waiting for my cam to arrive

Just can't believe how cheap this camera feels in the hand! 

I used also my good ol' NX1s, which I believe have the best grip and ergonomics, and are extremely well build and robust, and the difference is huge.

Maybe someone should take the insides and make a proper re-housing with a proper F battery instead of the Canon, which is no fun while in the middle of a shooting. It was very stressful last night.

The grip is kinda awkward as well,it lives better on grips and gimbals. I wonder how long the buttons n dials will last 

Maybe it is wiser to see the industry responds and/or the braw implementation first.

What do you mean rehouse? Get rid of the current P4K body? I heard it's plastic-like  maybe you just need to put it in a cage.

Just can’t believe how cheap this camera is.

Pop it in a cage (I’ve got the 8Sinn one) and it feels absolutely fine. And it’s still cheap!
