@joe:
So, good observations. I am actually just trying to learn/play with the BMPCC4K to see how it does. I actually have a Prosumer Sony AX53 4K that I feed to my Atomos Inferno and record in DNxHR with. I even have a 21 foot tripod setup with long HDMI, remote, power cables to get good elevated footage. I use this setup at games when I have no stands/elevation. I was using my AX53 on a tripod as well and it works very well. I will most likely go back to that with one exception. Night games it doesnt do so well. It works OK, but the problem with the AX53 is it has only 1 manual mode option. I have to set that on Focus, so that when I move/pan camera, it doesnt continually try to auto focus. When I do that, I lose the ability to control iris, so as the field is lit better in some areas than others at night, the auto iris mode kicks in (since I am on manual focus mode) and you see the sort of stepped brighter/darker changes in the video. It is not a big deal, as I am ONLY shooting for coach review AND to make highlight reels for kids which has yet to happen. If anything the highlight reels would be a bit more epic style, but they are not to have music, etc. Scouts HATE watching videos with music to them (though I dont understand why its a big deal to just mute it... apparently most of them just toss it out if they hear music/audio).

It may be the music can be distracting if the scouts are concentrating on player skills.

Yup..exactly. Well that and you may piss them off if you choose music they dont like... and apparently it is too hard to just turn it down. A lot of kids put music to it and post it on youtube to share with friends/family as well. Or a lot of parents put music to it to make it appear cool as the events unfold and music is pumping.
