Perhaps not a full stop, maybe a half or 2/3 of it in my testing of BRAW in the last couple of days. And to add, it seems to me that people who criticise BRAW - in the sense whether it is RAW or

The BRaw update on the pocket 4k has some really interesting OLPF-like softening of false detail and over sharpening. I personally love it. 

When you're suddenly being sued by Red you've clearly got them concerned. Keep stirring up the industry, BM!

4:1 is usually fine, and of course less is better. :) But I'd probably use VBR HQ for constant quality.

If we shoot CinemaDNG lossless, how many minutes length we can expect as average going with VBR HQ for archive @ post?

If we shoot lossy 4:1 CinemaDNG, would there be any chance to still save space in disk without losing 4K DCP output in mind? If so, what slimraw route?

It depends; variable bit rate means size will vary with image complexity. It is usually (but not always) between 3:1 and 4:1, might be around 600GB for a couple of hours of 4K.

I wouldn't bother shrinking a 4:1 source any further, but if you really have the inclination, you can try 5:1 or 7:1 on top of it, which will shave off ~20% and ~40% respectively. Ofc, always test and judge results yourself.

3.1 is (was) 64m /500GB (4K Dci 24p)...2 hours pre-braw on 500GB has never been a possibility in 4K

In an interview with Cinema 5d IBC 2018 Blackmagic said we are interested to provide BRAW for other camera manufacturers too! That too for free!

Link:- @ 4:30-6:00 min

 

I would love to see BRAW in Fujifilm x series with/without monitor! But I want SDI output from Fujifilm x cameras! 

Recently they anounced 12g sdi RAW output with blackmagic video assist! Who knows blackmagic would become new atomos!?
