It is hard to part with this baby and I am using it everyday. Power keeps on running out but battery is very inexpensive so I bought a few. There are some draw backs on in-camera fuctions, such as no format option, audio, histogram, exposure meters and a dozen of tools that are normally in most cameras. Since Blackmagic is not a major player like Sony, Panasonic, Nikon and Canon, they may not have enough man power but I think these upgrades will come with the new firmware. It is an excellent pro video camera, easy to lug around and gets the job done. Its ISO performance is not comparable to the 5D in low light but under adequate lighting or outdoor it's sharper with more detail than a full frame. Anyway since the sensor is a small super 16, I didn't expect lower noise at high ISO. Still sensors in general have better ISO performance but they are prone to have moire issue and lower dynamic range. Even the Red Epic has noise problem in low light and I am hoping it will get much better with the new Dragon. There are an abundance of Micro 4/3 lens available for this camera but a wide lens is hard to find, only the Panasonic aspherical 7-14mm is wide enough. Anything wider will be a fisheye lens. I tried the Olympus 9-18mm and when framed in 9mm, it was comparable to my 24mm on the 5D. I have not measured it with a protractor but I am guessing the crop factor is more like 2.5 despite what was claimed. The BMPC may not be a consumer camera but I can't imagine any pro or enthusiast wouldn't want one in the bag. However, even for a rookie that can change with a bit of training. I must say when I first received it, I was a quite frustrated. It took a while to figure out the memory chip must be reformatted to exFAT with a PC and then I ran into problem playing back the clips.Read more ›

This camera is years ahead of the video you can get from your DSLR or iPhone. I can't compare it to other consumer cameras because it is not like any other video camera you can buy under $5,000. If you want a certain type of image, then the drawbacks of this camera are insignificant.

This camera is not over-hyped. It records 10x more image detail than any video camera you paid less then $5,000 for. These are the facts.

The total pixels in a frame is 1,920 pixels wide and 1,080 pixels high. A total of about 2 million pixels. In one second, we watch 30 of those frames, or roughly 60 million pixels per second. For a minute we'd need 60 million times 60 seconds, or 3.6 billion little dots of color. Even for a computer, that's a lot.

The human eye can discern about 12 million colors. We need 3 bytes per pixel, or, in the above example, 10.8 gigabytes per minute*. As you know, you're not streaming 10 gigabytes of video to your TV every minute. Video compression cuts it down to a manageable size. However, video compression throws out image data that, if you want to change the video later, let's say, make the clouds more billowy, or the grass blades sharper, is impossible to do.

The BMPCC throws out 10-times less visual information than your DSLR in video-mode. It saves the full color value for EVERY pixel. You can take a frame from this camera, print it on a normal photo paper, and it will look exactly like a photograph. If you do that with the video that comes out of other cameras, it will look okay, but will be missing a fair amount of detail and color nuance. You didn't notice the missing colors that were "compressed" away because the video was moving too fast.

This company is doing great things, that is to say, they're doing what other companies are not. It works out great for us since it gives us new tools to choose from, and sometimes gets the other manufacturers to compete and give us more.

The pocket camera is an interesting tool, and if you're on a budget you'll be hard pressed to compare it to anything else out there at the moment, but that really does come down to its very high quality recording format, if you were to take that away, it would be a far less interesting camera.

Let's get right into the breakdown

-very portable
-RAW video, unheard to be built in-camera and at this price(though compressed)
-Uses a wide variety of lenses(active vs dumb mount for m43
-Same sensor image quality/color/sharpness as BMC
-Really cheap all things considered

And now the not so nice considerations...
-Very short battery life, & external batteries add size/weight
-NOT a low light friendly camera(bring lights! Always! even with good low light cameras!)
-Significant Moire/Aliasing
-No high compression options: sometimes you need more space, and these files are very large.
-Some might consider 1080 a limiter, but it's still very good
-No high frame rate options
-Rolling shutter/Jello (don't shake the baby)
-Sensor is small, DOF junkies will complain about things not being out of focus enough

Verified Purchase
I was so excited to use my kickstarter funds to purchase this camera. To charge the battery you have to charge it in camera. I came back to check on the progress of the battery, and the battery had melted, working with the SD slot and the entire insides of the camera around the battery and the SD card holder.

Two voicemails and emails have resulted in no contact. No one picks up the phone at their headquarters, you leave a message and they get back to you.
The our stated on their phone system do not match the hours on their website.
Search for melted or battery for explosion and black magic on YouTube, and you will see that there are number of electrical problems that happen for no reason with many of these devices. Buyer beware, I cannot have another kick starter to get another camera. My project is really wrecked now.
