Can anyone comment about the IR issue?

-Do definitely need an IR filter?

-How do we use one with other filters (ND,pola?)?

-Is there a good (or bad!) brand?

I think a list of IR filters have been posted here maybe page 331 or 332. Check Firecrest and Hoya among others

I sold my Sony a7s and all my Sony lenses, battery grip this week. So I am in the market LoL.

I thought you were going to pull a Charlton Heston with your a7s:

"Pry it from my cold, dead hands!"

Maybe @Andrew Reid can start working on a NEW camera profile called a7SHD where we can give new Fuji, Nikon and Canon cameras those lovely green skin tones from the original a7S???

@Andrew Reid

Yeah I sort of thought that also LoL. No good way to match the a7s with the Canon C100 footage. But it really is too small for my hands. Now with the battery grip on it it is not too bad. But by the time I rig it out it looks like a Arri Alexa that was in a train wreck. So Main reason I want to go to a C100. I sort of still miss my Panny AF100 layout wise. The C100 is capable of being hand held at times, so I think it will be a better fit for me.  And there is a lot of cheaper lenses for it over the a7s that have AF, the EF-S stuff is damn cheap. And the output is easier to work with. As I am in no real hurry shooting I think it is my best way to go. Now no photo capability, but nothing is perfect for all of it.

Plus I want to start back doing some birding again, and the C100 with the crop is a way better fit for that I think. I have a Swivel Gimbal that I hope the C100 fits on?

An older version of this one I have had for years. https://www.amazon.com/Benro-Carbon-Fiber-Gimbal-GH2C/dp/B00Z17RIN4/ref=sr_1_27?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1542900862&sr=1-27&keywords=swivel+gimbal

I just picked one of these up to serve as a b-cam/gimbal cam alongside my Ursa Mini and ran the first tests with it.

First impressions; it's a beast. The ergonomics are spot on and as a former 5D2 user I feel right at home with it. The UI is essentially the same as in the Ursa Mini which is nice.

And coming from the Ursa, and BMCC2,5K before that, the low light capabilities... they're just like, damn. I just want to go all run 'n gun and shoot my next short with all natural light. I ran a test on how far I could push it  while still getting a clean image - ended up fitting it with a speedbooster and a Pentax SMC 50/1.2. I was able to ETTR at 50fps in city areas, and shoot comfortably in even extremely dim locations. In fact, I had to stop down/up the shutter speed on several occasions.  The image wasn't 100% clean though - I'm assuming it's like in the previous BMD products, in that noise reduction is only applied in prores. I shot RAW so I had to do some cleaning up in Resolve (a process I've accustomed to with previous BMD products mind you - but in ISO 800 in their case), but the image did clean up very nicely and retained all the detail.

It's probably the first time I'm seeing an actual cinema grade camera do low light this well. I felt that I could use a reflector to bounce the available light and the camera would actually pick it up.

Attached two snaps from my short walk with the camera. Not very cinematic - but rather tests on how much data I could get from available nightime light. Quite a bit, even in indirect light, as evidenced by the second picture.

I've heard they are just shipping replacement doors to people who have the loose ones so you don't need to ship your camera in anymore and they're easy to take off. Looking at the mechanism of mine, I'm pretty impressed with how easy they are to remove.

It just fell off on it's own? ;)

So I know no one has them in stock, but is there a dealer in the states that we know/guess will get the P4K sooner than later? 

I know that when the Ninja V and the AtomX SSD were  backordered at B&H, I was able to get them from Texas Media Systems. Had them 3 days after ordering. Might try them.

@webrunner5 Don, you can reach Terry on dvxuser:

Worthy of a try once the worldwide demand since this camera is the dream of some generations as matter of fact, from a Texas seller though, who knows? They are a reputable supplier, you'll only end fine there : -)
