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.
