To me used to see dozens/hundreds of thousands invested on AVID systems before... let alone the hours paid directly in the film lab's bank account... all this seems too odd to read (without extreme roll eyes) several comments written on such completely nonsense posts, a little bit all over internet *phew*

Sanctimonious not?

Hi! Here are some good quality screenshots from a clip that was posted in a BMPCC4k Facebook group. I have the footage in my HDD (12 GB for about 4 minutes), I may re-upload it (original link is gone), but I already feel like a thief writing this post ^^

The footage looks clean and beautiful. No visible noise, just a fine grain. It is not really representative of the final output of the camera but it looks very promising.

I graded it with FilmConvert and the BMPCC video preset. No sharpening, no noise reduction

Please, please post the original unaltered clip! We're like beggars desperate for a hand out!

Appreciate it. I just looked for my own card, couldn’t find it. Maybe it just existed in my imagination. 😂

I just got into the studio and found the card, but annoyingly the Broadcast cam doesn't come with Resolve. I saw the SD while unpacking and building it up last week, and just assumed it on there. We do also have the video assist, but bought that last year, so I'll look around for the box and hope we still have the Resolve card with that. If I can find it, I'll install, I assume it'll be the same version you have. Hopefully I can then update to 15 easily. Either way, I'll let you know later today.

@Federico Res Please share that original file! You get 50gb free on www.mega.nz so it's easy to link.

I found it, it’s Resolve 12.5, still wouldn’t open. @Cinegain thinks it may be the Lite version; he’s probably right.

Ah ok, well, you can download the Lite version of 15b1 on the website and try opening that?

Quick link for anyone who wants it: www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve/

Speaking of the website, I just saw that on the Video Assist page, under the 'Work with Professional Software' heading, it says 'Since it comes bundled with DaVinci Resolve Lite......' So @Cinegain is right, and I'll stop looking for that card haha.

Here's hoping you have better luck with the studio version if you get the P4K @jonpais

What are we nicknaming this camera anyway? BMPCC4K? P4K? Batcam?

LOL No, not at all : ) I even had to google it in order to improve my English now hehe I've learned a lot with you, pal : )) I only think as much as I appreciate to learn with older people than me, I guess people who have no memory of the past (even recent) also have something to listen from people with more experience, of course.

Besides to be really funny how people comment (as written in my post, a little bit everywhere wrongly spread on internet, so spread all over not exactly only here) on something which costed dozens/hundreds of thousands (pending on configuration) free now all included in a package with an inexpensive tool able to provide 12-bit RAW 4K... Oh well :-)

That was the point.

I've started calling it the P4K after I saw someone use it. BMPCC was already kind of ridiculous, but BMPCC4K went straight to plaid.

P4K-422 sounds like a Stargate SG-1 destination.  :)

Forget the SD cards, they only contain the free version of Resolve which you can download anyway. Resolve Studio comes with a USB dongle (the software can be freely downloaded as well but doesn't run without the dongle).

Well, the newer versions come with a license key, which is in the box. In fact, they had a thing I think last year, where you could send them info about your dongle, and they'd send you a new license code. I thought that key might be on the SD cards we have here, but as we've established... it's not. Perhaps it will be by the time the Batcam is sent out?

You can download the Studio version off the website too, and you can even instal it, but before it opens, it asks for this key.\

Either way, the result is the same, but I wanted to point out, we won't be getting physical dongles in the P4K box.

For me, @mercer 's unintentional christening of it as The Pocketii has stuck with me.

I'll be in Modena in July so I might see if someone can re-house it in chrome and leatherette with walnut finish loupe for the rear LCD with an eyepiece made from hand fed calf hide with accent stitching.

See if they can fit some chrome exhausts to the bottom as well.

The original clip on Vimeo is only 153MB. Shame as it's also handheld, so could have been a great sample of what to expect with rolling shutter and colour/gradeability, but the compression means there's not much it can tell us that we don't already know.
