would love that as well. Any type of wrapper would be amazing for performance and backup speed ==> no need for ProRes RAW if cDNG gets a wrapper.

Hi Kristian, on the topic of timecode, can multiple BMPCC4K camera be set to the real world time using the iOS app? The idea is a poor man's timecode sync. Also how many BMPCC4K can be linked to and triggered from 1 iPad app to start stop recording?

Hi, will the BMPCC4K have a notch in the battery cover to allow for Canon dummy battery solutions?

Unfortunately no. There is no such feature yet in the iPad control.

The iPad app can only control 1 camera at a time.

So can can the time on the camera be set to the time on the iPad? Meaning the time universal iOS timer is synced to the bmpcc4k?

No notch but the door is removable.


Hi Kristian, to clarify: after the door is removed, will the battery or dummy catch and stay in place?

Why can't it be programmed for alternative uses of the ports, bluetooth and WiFi. It's easy enough to sandbox the use of the ports and part of the FPGA. Allowing people to program useful customisations. You know how Red developed the revolutionary Red ray codec, and told us they would reveal his it worked, but then didn't. Let's say somebody had a codec as good or better than redray and prores, which they want to put on your camera as an alternative to prores. That instantly can make the camera much more sable for TV, as you her a near lossless 50 mbit/s or less codec, a small fraction of the data rate of raw.

Thanks


Wayne.

Even more memorable would be actual names, like John, Henry, Carbuncle... :D
