Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera

Hey guys , I'm a documentary and short film director and cinematographer , I've been looking into the BMPCC lately as a video alternative to my EOS 6D , I can't sell the 6D since I also work mostly as a photographer and I'm not really able to invest in an expensive camera system , so I was considering getting the BMPCC and buying an EF mount to make the most out of my Canon EF lenses , is it worth the buy or should I stick to the 6D ?


stick to what you have

You voted '+1'.

depends on what you shoot. Bmpcc sucks in lowlight. Crop factor is almost 3x. No slow motion. Not good for run and gun in my opinion. Need external monitor cause lcd is terrible resolution. Bad preaamps. Plus it's hard to match that with a 6D for two camera shoots. But at the end of the day, if you know how to use a BMPCC, its strengths and weaknesses, and for the right project and conditions....the images are beautiful...like a wild stallion you have to tame.
