Not sure if it's been asked/ requested but will we be able to dual record/ relay record? SSD - Cfast for higher codecs and SSD- SD or Cfast to SD for lower? Would really be a fantastic feature to bump this into a cheap yet professional workhorse of a small form factor camera. It's a real big asset for the Gh5 line and while I know the Ursa OS can't proxy record I hope it can backup for redundancy? Would save the need for an external recorder on anything I'm getting paid to shoot, never want to be the guy/girl who lost the footage.

Ah dang I figured it'd be a hard sell processing power wise considering the price point.

All will be known once we land in a few weeks.


I could do a lot with that. What's the resolution on Mars with the Hubble?

It wouldn't be a processor limitation. It's more likely the case that the card readers and both being connected through the same USB controller and the controller itself is the limitation.

Ah yeah makes sense though as anything additional would've increased the size and cost.

This camera is going to be a true successor to the pocket maybe not in size but in it's ability to allow an entry point into high end cinema. 4k dual iso raw, not even a year ago if I heard someone rattle off those specs I'd think a new 40k dollar camera just came out.

Are there any news on the Viltrox ef-m2 being compatible to the BMPCC4K ? I'm at the edge of buying one so I don't have to let go of my canon glass but did not find any definite info in the recent threads in the last couple of weeks.

I'm keen to know the answer to this as well as I've got the BMPCC4K on order and need to get an adapter for my EF lenses.
