18:1 Braw on the pocket 4k?

PostSun Oct 18, 2020 5:50 am

Hey All,

I see that the new 12k Ursa can do 18:1 Braw and I'd love to see that level of compression on all cameras especially the pockets as they're in the 'budget' range. I have so many Sandisk Extreme Pro SD cards from over the years and would love to be able to utilise them on any project that 18:1 compression would be suitable for!

Hopefully this is something that is technically possible and may make it's way down the line.

Cheers,
Ryan

We all hope for q3 (18:1) obviously :-)
I think both pockets 4K and 6k can benefit from these two new compression ratio.

Hey Ryan, I have a Pocket 6K and have a few Sandisk Extreme Pro SD Cards (90MB/s) ones too. I am able to record on them at 12:1 BRAW at 5.7K 24fps without issues. At that resolution and frame rate, the write speed is approx 49.7 MB/s (or 50MB/s). So you should be able to use them with 12:1 BRAW 4K @ 24fps without issues on the Pocket 4K. I don't have a P4K but the that should work for you too.

Further to Carlo’s comment, it would be nice to have the Q1 quantization setting as well on the BMPCC4K as I usually use Q0 versus Q5. Q1 and Q3 please. No rush due to the pandemic shutdown of my shoots.
