Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

If this can be done in a 'legit' way - ie, with some assurance of quality of workmanship and support from someone that customers know and trust then this is quite a cool thing.  Having options for customisation is quite cool.

Nice looking grip with Dtap, USB power and dummy battery:

https://www.newsshooter.com/2019/09/17/cine-x-battery-grip-for-the-bmpcc-6k-4k/

Having used my P4Ks and my P6K many times on shoots, I wonder about this grip. It looks like it would be great on a tripod, and I love the features, but I really don't see this as being something that would be comfortable to use when going handheld. I have my cameras in a cage with a side handle and a F970 battery on top. With this grip, with the two handles and extra bulk on the bottom, I wonder how well it would work in the field. I would be happy to try it out and see how it works in person.

The extra weight and bulk would come in handy if you had the camera mounted on an EasyRig.

Or shoulder mount? Honestly I dont think I want to use an EasyRig without an assistant or a production crew around me. Maybe it's just me because I'm not a pro, but it looks like a movie prop

Might help give some heft for a shoulder too. EasyRig solo isn’t that much of a pain. You just pull down the cable with one hand and mount the camera with the other. I used to do it all the time with a c100 mk2 operating without an asst for one reason or another

If you shoot in anything other than 4k DCI, the sensor gets windowed, that symbol is letting you know. 

Sucks!

On another note - that still sucks, I have pre-ordered an P4K 20 days ago and the latest official reply was "it can arrive in one week, or two months"..

Why? The sensor is wider than 16x9, so to get a 16x9 aspect ratio you need to crop (or window) the pixels on the side. The only alternative is to squeeze the extra pixels into the 16x9 frame and that would be awful haha.

Yeah I also thought with the release of the P6K, there will be a better inventory for P4K. But it seems that the P6k is better stocked than the P4K.

I just remembered that NX1 did 4K from 6K 5 years ago!

I still use 1080p and 120 frames are "too" windowed. Whatever you choose, except 4K, have to use a calculator!
