metabones seems a bit ahead when wide open

I was reading about this at another forum. Considering how the Viltrox typically is just as sharp as the Metabones on other M43 cameras, the running theory there is that it’s something to do with the coating on the speed boosters and Blackmagic’s sensor in the Pocket 4K. 

Still, I think either would work well enough overall.

  What do you people think (or know) about BMP4K and the Ronin S?

What other speedbooster people recommend? I have the Dec Regain on order, but I do not like that you always have to use its handle, so I would probably buy another one, just in case.

You can control the aperture directly from the plug in receiver so you only need the handle if you want to do remote focus.

As the other speedboosters don't allow any sort of focus control on the P4K anyway it would be much of a muchness aside from the extra bulk of the plug in receiver.

I don't think PK4 will ever have the same look as the original good or bad. Lots of cameras are unique, and not easily reproduced. C100, Sony F3, BMPCC on and on. I am not super impressed with the PK4 footage I have seen yet. Yes it is good, but I still think it is not what most people expected, me included. I have no desire yet to buy one..

Hmm that is hard to describe. I was expecting a better BMPCC I guess. Better LCD, better batter life, maybe continuous AF. It to me, the PK4 is sort of half way between the original and a GH5s output wise. A bit too sharp, not as thick, or old timey looking. I guess I was looking for a cross between a newer original one and a Digital Bolex for a cheap price. They sure did the price right that is for sure.  It is just not creamy looking like the older BMD cameras. More of a modern look to it. And that is for most people probably a good thing.

My biggest beef is that it still is a camera body that you need to rig the hell out of it, just like the original one, to really make it work. It is not a C100 where you can just turn it on and go right out of the box. When you add a cage to a body they Always end up making it harder to get to stuff. It doesn't fit your hand smoothly anymore. It is no longer a part of you, it is a lump of metal with tons of holes in it, stuff hanging everywhere.

But for the money it is a gift from the gods for what it really is capable of. So I am sure I will snag one down the road for a good price. Really nothing to take it;s place. I am not really at this point in a position to buy anything right now. So just looking as they say now, and seeing what you guys that have them come up with. That is the proof.

does this camera suffers from aliasing? would it be noticeable on a large screen as a movie theatre? I need to understand if use it as DOP, for short movies that smay be projected on very large cinema screens.

thx

I haven't noticed any in my short time with it.

It doesn't have a Anti aliasing filter, so yeah you are going to have to use a external IR-cut or IRND filter for a lot of situations.

thx, which products does this job for example?
