Have a good color quality. If you uses RAW it's espectacular and better, it's small :D

Kelly, go ahead and share yours! Clearly in your profile pic you are operating a nice BMPCC rig but regretfully there is neither a reel in your profile nor a website to see what kind of work you do.

Good luck!

My favorite camera that I've ever owned. I'm only beginning to unleash its potential...

Same. I've had it for about 6 months and really just getting into it. I often work for a production company that has EX1's, a C100, 5Diii and FS700 and the blackmagic pocket has a nicer looking picture than all of them! It's a crazy little camera once you get to know it. It's just a shame if you have to bolt loads of stuff onto it.

I love it for music video because you don't need sound, and can keep it small.

I sometimes crave more buttons and dials though!

it's a good small camera to have around at home for fun. i use it in two different setups. one that's rigged out with enough accessories to do what it needs to do, another just to carry around with a lens. i highly recommend the ikan/tilta cage.
its beautiful, ergonomic and has all the traits you would want in a cage.
however it's not really a pocket camera. you definitely want a small bag.
also the lcd really sucks. there's no contrast, hard to see. it might look blown out to the eye but if you look at your scopes it's actually safe. you have to basically get a small lcd to judge any time of color. if going with no monitor you can use the histogram for exposure and just framing. it's pretty useless outside of that.

also the claim that prores is enough on most shoots. maybe to some but always shooting on larger cameras, i've felt the prores was not enough for me

Ditto - go Raw to preserve dynamic range.

I just got mine a few days ago. I'm a total noob. It's the first camera I own. I find it quite intimadating actually. Does anyone have any good tutorials I could check out on how to use the camera effeciently?

Here are the two videos I have shot with the BMPCC so far:

I also have a short film in the editing process!
I just love this camera. True 1080, prores, 10bit 4:2:2... Amaaazing!! The only thing I miss from my t4i (which I continue using) is the articulating screen.

I'm still figuring it all out and learning but here's my entry to the my rode reel 2015 contest shot on bmpcc:

and here's a music video I shot fall of last year when I first got the camera, I don't really like some stuff about it but thankfully it taught me a lot in the process

Those are the two projects I've shot on it so far. What do you guys think about keeping the black magic as opposed to getting the GH4?

Pushing the dynamic range to its limit: wide open at f/1.4 + speedbooster in daylight.
