New Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

PostFri Jul 13, 2018 12:04 pm

I have a few questions about the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K.

1) All literature mentions Mac & PC, How disadvantage will a Linux used be for software/firmware updates?

2) Does the camera have image stabilization, kind 3 axis, 5 axis?

3) Does the HDMI output contain audio channels for an external monitor.

The reason for the questions is I am considering moving from my Olympus OM-D which has a great 5 axis IS, but it lack audio channels for an external monitor. All my pro lenses would work with the new camera.

Thanks
Paul

Not sure about black magic and Linux

No Ibis is in the pocket or any black magic camera.

HDMI has audio out but limited to a 1080p video signal.

A different beast to the Olympus

A lot is answered on the B&H website, but I'm not 100% convinced that BMD "expert" actually works for BMD. He had no idea what Prores RAW was, and he was wrong about a few things that needed correction. There was a non-bmd employee giving a demo of the Pocket 4K at NAB and on one of the videos online, he claimed you could do 100fps full sensor which is not true.

He's a BMD employee. BMD Expert is not his user name, it's a badge that he was given by B&H.
