Is the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k any good?? | BMPCC4k

  1. Received my BMPCC 4K these days and …. it's just awesome! The footage (esp in RAW) looks so fantastic. Very happy with it. But it makes sense to add some gear like a rig, SSDs, SSD-holder and lots and lots of batteries 😉

    BTW: The camera fits just fine on the Ronin-S – just use the mount adapter that is delivered with the Ronis-S … it's in the small pouch with all the cables stuff. Put that one the normal mounting plate and the Blackmagic on top and it balances just fine.

  2. Got my Black Magic PCC4K just a few days ago … yeah .. screw RED! $1750 for a 4K camera that gives you 16 bit RAW!!?! … you are nuts if you think that’s bad! For any of the negatives of this camera (battery power isn’t great) it’s hands down the BEST film camera I’ve used. And at this price point .. this was an easy sell. Works beautifully with my sigma 18-35 mm lens (with metabones adapter).

    Nice and light, amazing camera image.

    Don’t use Pro Rez … BM Raw is Better!!!!

  3. From my end the canon looks better for this purpose of YouTube filming. Maybe you just needed to spend more time on the color grade.

    I also own the BMPCC4K and I think it’s great! I also own the Ursa Mini Pro. This camera has officially replaced that. (ANYONE WANNA BUY MY BARELY USED URSA MINI PRO 4.6K?! LOL). I shoot with natural light and the dual sensor is just fantastic. I can’t ever go back to a bad low light camera, that’s what it comes down to. I also love that it’s super light for gimbals.

    Adobe Premiere needs Blackmagic RAW support tho!!! This is killing me!

  4. I do wish it had a neutral density filter tho. And I wish Zeiss and some other renowned lens brands like Leica and Cooke would make some dope Micro four thirds lenses. I want WIDE baby! I have the 0.64x metabones EF speedbooster adapter (I returned the 0.73x one for this, that wasn’t wide enough for me). But it just doesn’t feel right using it with my Zeiss. I needed to purchase lens support which not sorta blocks my Nucleus M motor..I have to look into other lens supports, the small rig one doesn’t cut it. Too bulky. Without lens support for me there is too much movement when I use the focus motor.. and my torque is r crazy or anything, Iran just the nature of the adapter I guess 🙁

  5. 13:30 what do you think would have less noise? A T1.2 lens with a speed booster on the bmpcc 4k or a T1.2 lens of a sony a7iii? Is the full frame sensor going to get cleaner footage with 1 stop less of light?

  6. Wait! 4:50 !
    The Sure SM7b doesn't need phantom power. It's a dynamic mic. Condensers are the ones that need phantom power, not dynamics.

  7. Nothing clever about speaking so fast that people have to go into settings and reduce the playback to 0.75 – Also use cutaways. It's about the kit not you.
    Otherwise reasonable review.

  8. Never mind I see the way you record that's too complex for me on the run ghost hunts I need to move around see and hear stuff I use The rode pro plus It's cool with me cause I had 149 dollar lav mic that sucked then the Rode go came with my 80 d the rode pro plus to me is awesome I feel I can be a one man crew now I don't know how you carry those cinema cameras my 80 d is heavy enough

  9. The 80 D is great I know I'm saying that cause its my camera but you can't beat that auto focus I love the add I call it like me I call it that cause it can do allot even at night if you crank up the iso i don't even know what i'm talking about but I love the 80 D

  10. the thing about the rigging is that you're buying items that can be used for any camera. apart from the cage you can transfer all those accessories to your next camera investment, so if you're a film maker you either already own them or you will need them regardless

  11. Potato Jet, I f'ing love you. BUT, you cant criticize a cinematic camera for not being good at filming yourself. This wasn't meant for vlogging. I know that's a big thing for you, but not for potential buyers of this camera. The LAST thing I want is to see is myself on camera! 🙂 Also, I would love to see the laser test you did with the red on a similar rig.

  12. I'm seeing that in some videos they say that this camera is superb and some "genius" compares it to Alexa and Red .. (ahahaha ..) .. I just say that the BMPCC 4K is a fantastic camera for those who use it semi-professional. But if I have to buy this camera for $ 1300 and then I have to spend another $ 2000 for monitors, SSDs, rigs, Matte boxes, etc … for me it makes absolutely no sense. Throwing the dollars in accessories for a plastic camera I find it really unintelligent .. If I have to shoot a professional video I prefer to rent an Arri or Red or Sony Venice, etc.

  13. question when you filmed the happy birthday part tell you didn't have that entire gear you show leading up to the video.

  14. Great review! I watched it before I bought my BMPCC4k and now I've started my own channel shooting genre shorts with it! Thanks for the great info!!!

  15. You call yourself Professional, BUT obviously you didn't learn that's it's rude to point at people, it's unprofessional to wave your hands around close to the camera, put your hands within inches of the camera and as for your editing, it's very poor. It seems the only thing which makes you think you're pro is the equipment you can afford to use. By the way, anyone can video NASA's launches or anyone else's, come to that.

  16. Its not Black Magic that is priced low…its other cameras that are ripping you off, just because most production companies can afford the ridiculous pricing of RED, Arri, etc.

  17. Hey Potato jet, your video about the 6k version is too late. So all I can do is to watch the video of the old version again in the waiting room 😀

  18. That intro tho!

    Potato, the crop factor on the BMPCC 4k is 1.75 (like the GH5S). Canon apsc crop is 1.6. Not really that different, right?

  19. Sat here watching this and my dad who knows nothing about cameras started watching too. "You can't take your eyes off this video, he is so captivating!" Nice job. Side note: Nice cameras, shame it's not full frame but for the price can't complain I suppose

  20. This is a really informative video! Thankyou for sharing!
    Everyone is going CRAZY for the latest pocket 6K but forget the whole workflow must handle the power! I can’t afford a new mac pro and a 6k screen.
    I’m just enjoying being creative and having fun with the original pocket camera.
    I just put this together!

  21. i love the quality the only problem its the batery u need to buy a lot of baterys if u wanna work with this. Also works with Draw files but thats its a good thing becouse in post production u have more to play

  22. In my high school film class we had a couple black Magic’s but the older model and I absolutely loved them. Honestly my dream camera. Loved the video btw!

  23. Could you please list the accessories you used in the video for the blackmagic e.g matte box, external battery pack, rig, monitor. The set up you had on the tripod outdoors. Thank you

  24. I'm new to all things video, I came across your channel and I'm really enjoying your content. Now, if i can just figure out how to reduce the video noise in my iPhone footage, I'll be making some progress! Anyways, great content +Sub

  25. I once had an acting role and they shot with this pocket 4k, rendering was bad at post idk why but the movie had a bunch of glitches and I remember the Director was constantly pulling out a magnify glass to look the monitor on the camera. 😆 Maybe a lemon? Maybe bad Director? maybe bad post? lol oh those memories are costly haha 👍

  26. your 32Gb would have been 48 with the BMPCC 6k. . . it blows me away people are prepared to deal with these kind of workflows for a prosumer camera sensor/chip.

  27. IMO BDPCC is overkill for YouTube vlogs. It’s a vlog, not a movie. Unnecessary. If Blackmagic wants it’s products used for vlogs, they will make a vlog version. Would you use an Aria for vlogging? Love your videos! Stick with the Canons.

  28. 12:27 I'm not happy about micro 4/3 at all. More noise, darker images, crop factor that affects not only the focal length but the aperature's effective f stop as well. I hate it…but you know what? It's all some people can afford and m 4/3 lenses are significantly cheaper than full frame or super 35 lenses/etc….*sigh*
