I saw that video when it first came out. That is the video that I was talking about in my post.

I have three P4Ks and have tested all of them. Mine don't lose footage when they lose power. I wonder if his camera was defective or if that was an early firmware issue. All I can say is none of my three P4Ks behave that way.

I never lost files not even with the first firmware.
Looking on the external sdd the files where always there and useable when the battery ran out of juice.

sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but where are people selling their resolve keys? I don't see any for sale on ebay and I would like to buy one from someone who bought a BMCC4k but already had resolve/didn't want it.

Did anybody try and use any new and small USB-C flash drive as solution? Some of them reach even 150mb/s writing speed, so in theory could safely been used for 5:1 and Q5 codecs, or even better for some simpler scenery.

My experience with flash drives is that even the tough & pro ones die instantly, without any warning. Never was able to recover one.

Actually, there are also USB3.1 models that go up to 350Mb/s, so it is possible to connect them via 90 degree speedy USBc-USBA adapter. For short filming there's no danger of heating. 

@Yannick Willox ... I've read that some of the newest are claimed to be much better in that regard. ... Anyway, I think about usage for not longer than few minutes sessions of shooting-then-stopping, so not too much exploiting... Of course, idea is to cut need for more cables and save space for run/gun situations.

I've got a 1tb mSATA drive in a USB 3.1 enclosure that works with BRAW at the highest data rates.  You have to be careful though as I've got a very slightly different enclosure and mSATA that the camera doesn't recognise.

Can you provide a link for that that works (and another one to be avoided) ?

The Samsung EVO  860 works but the 850 doesn't. Don't know the models of the enclosures as they are cheap no-brand ebay purchases.

Thanks... I'll have opportunity firstly to check SanDisk SSD plus used in Atomos recorders. But maybe somebody already tried it also...

See previous reply 😉

 

Something like this (but with a usb 3.1-C cable)

I think there are now USB-C to USB-C versions as well. As I said some versions may work and some may not.....

How much better for heavy grading is BRAW vs 10bit 4:2:2 with some flat profile/log?

I tested both, raw is Far better if your doing color correction. Prores okay for basic correction, make sure you nail the white balance in camera. 

Really wish the pocket received the prores 4:4:4 codec from the Ursa mini. Love that codec.
