I'm thinking of adapting M42 lenses to my BMP4K, using a M42 to EF adapter on top of my current Viltrox EF to micro43 speedbooster. Is this a bad idea, guys? 

Why wouldn't you? Then you have access to Helios 40, Jupiter 9, etc.. I have them adapted to Nikon and then added filter step rings to them for NDs and ProMist. Softens up and adds character to 4k image. Just be careful of flaring. It can get cray in ways that you may not want.

Ive also got the smallrig full cage but I much prefer the tilta half cage. (I don't really like full cages). I'm still awaiting the ssd holder & Tilta usb-c cable.

Looking into buying a small rib cage, and I’m wondering what the functional difference is between a nato handle and a regular handle.

nato handle comes in 5.56 mm and has an extra external trigger, not for an external sound recorder or hdmi recorder as you might expect. but rather if you pull the wrong trigger someone gets dead'ed,made for the american cinematographer / prepper who loves to be prepared even while at work. come in your two traditional camo styles and an urban camouflage  and a popular blackout option for the taticool cinematographer. 😉

edit : you may or may  not have  noticed, i'm a bit bored at the moment 🙂

You can say "4K 7 units + 1080p 5 units" or "7x 4K units + 5x 1080p units"... Does it make any difference for real? ; -)

The 512GB is 545, that means 775$ off the original price!!??!!

CF are still crazy expensive though, and the brilliant choice of BM to support USB-C recording will help a lot of people to test some kind of raw for cheap.

This camera just offers too much value for the money.

I am wondering how many they have sold already, and how many they have on order status.

It is kind of amazing to me that BMD screwed up another launch. Surely they had a clue on the pre orders that they needed a Lot of them manufactured? I would like to know how many people that buy one will actually keep it, or give up pretty fast and re sell them. There were a lot of the original ones that changed hands a lot. BMD cameras are not for everyone that is for sure. Not BMD's fault really. Cine cameras have very few auto anything in them. You sort of Have to know what you are doing to make them happen. And also not too many people that buy one is going to have the Computer Horsepower to even edit the footage, and the storage to hold it. I think a lot of them down the road will be on ebay, Amazon to be honest. Shame really.

Not really. These cameras are much user friendly. Easier to shoot with one than with any mirrorless camera these days. Boring automated devices fully messed up IMO.

P4K seems an old film stills camera centered on ISO & WB controls but for motion picture in hybrid age.

HFR or not + shutter at the distance of a button or alike without forgetting the best of the digital world: zebras and focus assist.

Not even need for other tools very easy to get from the most intuitive menu I've ever found in a camera and you can set off by default.

Set up your lens aperture and that's it.

You can even select a LUT of your preference. Import anything you want. Lots of free stuff out there BTW.

A breeze, my friend.

What else a shooter can ask?

 

Test one Don to begin with ; )

er... i think i have to put my hand up for all of the above except the storage, i have that covered at least i think. but you could be right about there being a few up for resale shortly. but i also think its about perseverance or willpower perhaps, if you want something bad enough then you will make it happen one way or another. i imagine its going to be a pretty steep learning curve right from the get go. probably great for everyone who makes computers and the other bits as we will forced to upgrade to do anything in a reasonable amount of time. i am of the opinion that for the price point that this camera comes in at, its worth jumping in at the deep end  boots an all  then thrash around like a madman trying to stay afloat.😁 its like xmen stuff adapt or die perhaps 🤔
