Pocket Cam revolution

PostTue Sep 10, 2013 11:19 pm

I got my pocket cam.
At work I use Alexa and 2/3inch 3ccd broadcast cameras.
My initial impressions checked on Eizo reference monitor are that this little cam is nothing short of a revolution.
The picture quality is comparable to that from 3x 2/3 inch broadcast cameras recording to pro codecs (AVCIntra100).
With the upcoming raw option I am pretty sure it will be able to intercut with Alexa-- with some grading applied. It can then serve on top movie productions as b/c cam.
I would not be surprised to see some theater distribution movies to be fully made on the pocket cam. Again the raw option for grading will be instrumental here.
Of course it can be improved and developed further, but even as it is in mk1 version, with the form factor, features and price, it's a breakthrough creative device for film people.
PS. I ordered quite a few more units now.

Don't necessarily need to wait for the BMPCC pocket RAW update. See John Brawley's recent tweet:
