A lot of what you see are peoples specific grades. I almost didn't buy a camera because of how bad a lot of footages looked on vimeo/youtube.
I enjoy shooting Raw but hated how yellow it looked until I downloaded the BMDfilm from vision-color. after that the footage can look as simple as canon or any other camera.
Fixed pattern noise seems to be a part of all their cameras. I had the pocket. It was there if I raised the blacks to high or used iso 1600. Same with my 2.5k I have now.
It would be nice if they could take this 4.6k sensor and slap it in the classic bmcc body and limit the spec to make s better 4k camera.
Also it would be great so I could keep all my other expensive devices. Cards. Rig. Batteries.
call it the BMPCC MARK II
They should make a cinema camera already.
I really enjoyed the lack of music. Too many short films or indie features have template generic soundtracks.
I agree about the constant creeping zooms.
I think you're talking about purchasing an Alexa. You can always rent one. it's cheaper! Heck, I'd of taken a blackmagic pocket, or sony A7s. Buy someone had to be first.
