I bought this camera with hopes of getting exactly what they promised: A S35 Sensor with options of RAW and Prores. It was a dream come true and an incredibly reasonable price. They even dropped the price. Well guess what? There is a reason they mysteriously dropped the price. The Sensor is faulty. Every camera has what is called Fixed Patter Noise which shows up as Vertical Bars on your image. The worst part is that Blackmagic is refusing several consumers to return their camera for a working ones. Here is the response I got from them "You can check the forums for workarounds. I believe you can underexpose, use a lower ISO then fix it in post."

If you are in the market for a $3k paper weight, then go ahead and buy this camera.

So I waited about six months before I pulled the trigger on this purchase. My biggest fears were FPN and hot pixels. When I got the camera, it was heavier than I expected. With the external battery, it was even heavier. I rigged it up and I must say, it's not as small and handy as a dslr, but it's still pretty compact. So let's talk image. Out of the box there was a lot of FPN (fixed pattern noise). I was understandably concerned. But I did some research and did some firmware upgrades and found that if you upgrade sequentially, from 1.8, to 1.9, instead of going straight to 1.9, it help with the sensor calibration and I can say my FPN is pretty much all gone. Hot pixels are sort of an issue. I say sort of, because they are present in tests, but not practical use. When I test the camera in a pure black situation at ISO 800, I see hot pixels. However, when shooting in low light in a practical situation, I honestly can't find any hot pixels. I've come to terms with this black magic (pun intended). More about the picture. I really wanted to see what it could do, so I went out and shot some 4k raw, and the picture was absolutely stunning. The raw is VERY gradable, even if the workflow is a bit of a pain, the images were great. The in camera color profile is flat and neutral, and with the right LUT and some grading the images sparkle. I still have some tests to do as far as long takes go (recording for 20-30 minute stretches) but I can say all in all I'm very happy with the camera. Also, they say this is not a low light camera, this is true, it is a light hog, however, I shot an interview yesterday where I used a couple hardware store bucket lights with 100w bus and got a fantastic image.Read more ›

It's early in the game for the Blackmagic design 4K camera, the long overdue camera has ever increasing competition such as the GH4 and the Sony cameras which seem to pop out of every nook and cranny. Despite that, the Blackmagic 4K camera still has what no one else does, namely: Global shutter, prores, RAW(eventually), SSDs, price.

This review will get longer and more detailed as i log more hours with the camera.

Preface for expectations

If there is one thing i would insist people know before even thinking about this camera: It's that Blackmagic Design, is NOT a camera company. If you can process and understand that, and curb your typical camera expectations, then you'll see this camera for what it is. What i've come to calling it, is the most beautiful pain in the ass you can buy. Why is that? Again, because blackmagic is not a camera company. See, camera companies have had years and boatloads of money to research, design, optimize, etc... in all the areas of making a camera. What shape should it be, how will it be held, how is it powered, etc...Blackmagic doesn't have this, what they do have, is an expertise in hardware and software for just about everything but cameras. This is their strong point, because the sensor was the only thing that they needed to have brought in (supposedly). Everything else they could do in house. But simply looking at their average product, you see mostly boxes, very simple designs because those types of products don't typically need anything fancier. But with cameras, things are totally different, because humans will be handling them in many different ways. It's completely understandable that they chose to keep it simple and just make a box, again, because it's not within their repertoire and they had to keep costs down somewhere.

I bought one from Adorama a month ago. These cameras suffer from a problem called Fixed Pattern Noise or FPN. There are vertical lines throughout the image. The cameras are faulty and Blackmagic Design has yet to acknowledge the problem nor fix it. If you go to the forums on blackmagicdesign.com you can see the numerous posts from customers who all suffer from the same problem. DO NOT BUY until the problem is fixed or you will be stuck with a $3,000 paperweight. DO NOT BUY!!!!!

The Camera is brilliant in terms of user interface, functionality, packaged software and support (Davinci Resolve, live shooting and monitoring applications) and quality of footage. I own this model, the EF mount, and love it, It's excellent for production shooting, daylight shooting, journalism, anything where you can control the light a lot and have access to power. The global shutter is also a fantastic feature, giving you an amazingly filmic look. For Journalists and interviewers shooting one of the great advantages of the camera is that it's easily usable and stunning 4K footage can allow you to shoot 1 camera coverage for interviews which you master to the still industry standard 1080p via flexible crop factor. However, for more run and gun shooting you will want battery power (like an anker pack) and external mounts/sticks. Also, keep in mind that the lowlight is an issue. You can get some pretty brilliant stuff with available light in urban settings, but you need to push and process. In pretty much all cases, even with (or perhaps even because of) the excellent dynamic range of the footage and the multiple shooting resolutions, the footage takes processing.

Other things to keep in mind are that the camera, in certain circumstances, can overheat. Design your rig not to block the fan. The FPN issues still exist, particularly at the highest ISO setting of 800 and when pushing the camera exposure to it's limits (the promised and advertised 1600 iso is still not active on the camera). That said, as an early adopter of the camera, BM has radically improved the functionality and diminished the FPN already through firmware solutions, and the packaged davinci resolve color correction and cleaning software is by far the best tool to handle it available.
