BMPCC 6K - 6.6 update => BRAW in 4K?

PostFri Nov 08, 2019 9:49 pm

Hi there,

I'm new to the BMPCC 6K (and to the family of these types of cameras).
I can't seem to find the 4K DCI BRAW options available after updating to 6.6.
Is the 4K BRAW option only available for BMPCC 4K?

Thanks

Thanks Ricardo,

I realize that. I shoot most of my stuff in 4K. I’m also in the process of switching to Resolve.
As BRAW 6K is native to Resolve - and seems to be running on it quite nicely - I was curious to
know why BMD have opted not to add it for 6K users as well.

It would be a welcomed addition.

Yes, the 4K BRaw option is only available on the Pocket 4K Camera. ;)

I discovered this yesterday as well. I was attempting a 3 camera setup to shoot different angles at the same time to speed up production. I used 2P4K and 1 P6K. The fact that all of the cameras couldn't be easily set up on the same resolution was frustrating and took more than a desired amount of time/thought figuring out which resolution each camera should be on for the editors timeline... the two 4k were on 4kdci and the 6k was on 5k I think. Somewhat frustrating

If you want to match shots, resolution and IQ, you need matching cameras. ;)
