I Love Blackmagic

PostTue Apr 01, 2014 12:21 am

Just wanted to say. I love my BMCC. For the price, no other camera can touch it.

I love what Blackmagic has done over the course of the last year. I have faith they will announce a firmware update to the BMCC at NAB.

So much so that I just ordered another Blackmagic product (the Multideck 2) to edit straight off the camera. :)

Keep up the good work guys!

Seriously guys,

BMCC 2.5k in RAW mode is ideal for short clips in amazing quality (4:4:4 encoding in razor-sharp resolution). This is exactly what we use it for professionally in our job-coaching agency in Zürich! We and our customers simply love the high-end look this cam delivers!

Sure a bunch of us have issues with the firmware, but the image this camera produces cannot be denied. It's pretty incredible that I can afford to own (not just rent) a camera that allows me to get this level of fidelity. Remember the RED epic was actually a very low cost camera for what it can do and it's what? 15x the price of the BMCC?

I was just explaining to a photographer on the stills side that my BMCC takes up to 30 uncompressed 2MP RAW images PER SECOND and they were pretty blown away...
