Blackmagic RAW on the Pocket 4K

PostTue Feb 12, 2019 12:35 am

Hi! Any news?
I have my Pocket Cinema 4K Camera and really hope Blackmagic RAW gets realeased for it soon, I got to see BRAW on the URSA Mini Pro and it is such an amazing codec!

If Blackmagic RAW's data rates are considerably smaller than CDNG, and given that the sensor can feasibly scan at 120fps, what are the chances of gaining 120fps at 4k on the Pocket 4k?

The sensor only scans 120FPS at 1080 resolution (as far as I know).

Blackmagic RAW on the Pocket 4K

Kays, even if the camera processor could do it, is there media that will record that on a single card? I guess BRAW could at the lower data rates, so a fair question then, but in the meantime...

My 1TB SSD, recording 4K DCI RAW 4:1, will record around 173 min at 24 fps and around 80 min at 60 fps, so you should get around 40 min at 120 fps.

That’s roughly 420MB/s so I guess that could be sustainable. Thanks.

Any update on when the BMRAW codec will be released for the BMPCC 4K, as soon as it is, I plan to purchase at least two BMPCC 4K's.

I think we can only speculate on when it will come to the Pocket 4K since BMD is keeping mum on the whole thing. My hunch is NAB so they have something to stir up excitement for their products but obviously I dunno for sure. Unless a BMD rep can give us some insight as to the update coming earlier than NAB, thats my prediction.

I'm hoping by the end of February, but it'll probably be NAB - and I speculate that they will announce the UMP v2: 5.7 or 6k, Blackmagic raw, similar body to the current UMP...and available to order now (could explain the seeming slowdown of production on the P4k).
