Really nice new cameras, but...

PostThu Jul 29, 2021 6:53 pm

Really nice new cameras, especially the low light capabilities, and improved audio is great. Also possibility to use Ethernet cable for remote video and control and the new focus and zoom controller, awesome.

...I just hope we will see a new micro studio version of it soon. Would be great to have it for something like this



and this



The complains we had with the current Micro Studio is that it is too noisy for VR studio, The new sensors seems to be much better.

I see them sliding off a few tripods as they appear to have no safety lock.

That can be replaced, I wonder why it is not an optional part.

The more I look that camera, the more I like it. for sure it will find its use, and we could even put it on the gimbal, though for that use the display is unnecessary annoyance.

Surprisingly I find in additional to good low light it has also good 13 stop dynamic range.

For this kind of installation the display could be even a good thing, and power, video and control over one cable would be excellent.

I really would love it, if BMD adds an optional zoom motor (similar to the Tilta Nucleus) component to the system, so we could use other lenses than the 5 current MFT power zoom lenses.

this release caught me by surprise. The good thing about that is that the Micro Cinema 4K release may catch me by surprise as well.

I like to use small camera/gimbal combos, and I had been thinking I would have a lighter Blackmagic camera for gimbal work by now. I finally gave up and got a gimbal that could hold my Pocket 4K.

The fact that this is MFT makes me think that if/when they release an updated Micro Cinema camera that it should also be MFT. That's a good indicator that I should be able to keep my lenses and can invest in the Meike lenses without worrying that I would not be able to use them with future cameras.

seems attractive at first sight. Lut button may works on this release ;)

I only regret lack of fiber input for pro version. Hope fiber mini-converter will work and support all new features.

Can we make any guesses how far away a Micro version is off? I'd love a Micro version of the new Plus but with a HDMI and an Ethernet port (and of course the USB ports). Plus a "Micro Studio Converter" - HDMI in, ethernet out for power and control. Or a "4 x Micro Studio Converter" 4 x HDMI in , 4 x Ethernet in a rack mount :)

Live production camera without a b4 lens mount is not very good idea
