get an extra phone mount, the next video challenge might be some kind of phone challenge if you have a spare holder you'll be ready.

i already have mine prepared,  just in case ( see what i did there ?)

Not sure how much glamming up my iPhone 6 footage can take. But at least I have the neat “blackmist” permanent scratches on the lens. So at least it will be very filmic

My dear erstwhile member can you please stop attacking John Brawley now. I have long since given up on camera forum arguments so might not be completely up on who is right and who is wrong-evil /

I like the pictures. A lot.  This camera will probably replace the micro cinema camera for me as it’s not much bigger and is much easier to work with.  I didn’t feel as strongly about the 4K

What a shame. Who are these "deep state" BMD insiders that are here pushing an agenda ? Myself and Hook.  Who else ?  What do you guys think, there's a plot and conspiracy ?  You guys don't wat t

In the middle of an more serious and exhausted job, I've found two days and appropriate hero to test Pocket 4k and  Panasonic 12-35, all I had with me at the moment... So, to add contribution to the topic of this so lovely camera... Maybe someone find some usable conclusion about its possibility in extremely unprepared, worse than run/gun conditions - except for plenty of will and little bit of ideas.

Sorry,  but the picture is really bad, grading is terrible.. it is my opinion

Been having fun with native lenses on the 4K now that I sorted out a few things to make it a bit more handheld. Honestly it’s such a strange looking camera that I think most people assumed I was shooting stills.

Anyway, here’s a quick 30sec sequence. Using the subway as my muse on a fairly bright overcast day in my neighborhood. I was honestly surprised at how decent the onboard mics are for ambient audio.

Thanks, and no need for excuse, opinions are always welcome, at least they are now divided :) But, apart of usual youtube execution (especially at iso4-5000), it is brief attempt  of two-part quasi artistic  story (not camera-accurateness-intended-showcase) with weird  at first and everyday at second part atmosphere and similar grading goals - and to catch it, it has to be seen all... which might be, I suppose, pretty boring experience.

I liked it.

I still consider it a better picture (OG BMPPC).

 

 For more than a year I have been waiting for a video from BMPCC4k that would excite me

 

 

I’m not much of a pixel peeper. I don’t use any quantitative measure or anything, I just know what my eye likes. And while I do see the difference between the OG and the 4K, I’d be hard pressed to say I like one over the other. They’re slightly different, but not earth shattering, in my humble opinion.

i really like the image I’m getting from the 4K, for the price of the camera I think the image is incredible. I haven’t had a project come through to put it fully through it’s paces, but so far it’s been more than capable of roaming around the city with me in a minimalistic setup. 

Besides the lens, the only thing rigged to the camera is a SmallRig T5 bracket bolted directly to the top 1/4” and a Jobby 5k gorilla pod to use more as a forearm brace than tripod for support. All of it with batteries and filters fit in a Peak Design small sling bag. While not in my pocket, still pretty light setup that’s easy to bring practically anywhere. I even have enough space in the bags for a Cineo Matchbox light 

 

The screen isn’t ideal, but honestly it’s just as frustrating in direct sun as the c100 mk2’s display, and that one swivels ?

Maybe I’m easily amused, but I’m happy.

Here are a few more quick shots

Hi Yannick,

I do this all the time with my F8n, on multiple P4Ks & P6K. Just plug your BNC cable into the BNC out on the Zoom F8(n) and plug in to the P4K mic input. You will instantly see your timecode sync. Let me know if you have trouble and I can walk you through the steps.

I finally got the cable and the P4K syncs perfectly now ! When I play a file on the F8, the timecode changes immediately to the TC in the audio file.

That will save a couple of hours in post-production !
