The video was unavailable, but it's not an either or proposition. They different tools for different work. I wouldn't go exclusively to the BMPCC unless you were shooting only narrative. The GH4 does a lot things well.

You're comparing apples and oranges. One has 4K, the other one doesn't. One shoots raw, the other doesn't. One eats batteries, the other one lasts hours on a single battery.

What matters to you when you're shooting? No one on this forum can answer that question but you.

a cinema camera vs a photo camera with an eye to filmaking work... the question is a waste of time. I used both, for different work and shooting requirment. you can do excellent work with both, with different pro and cons. like Sathya told you, the only people that can answer to you is you.

I've owned and sold, the BMPCC, the GH4 and A7SII. The Long story short, the BMPCC is a pain to shoot with do the periphery gear you need to add to it to make it work (monitor, speed booster, battery pack, pile of hard drives for storage). The A7S II is the best of the bunch, for anything you plan to release online. The camera noise on the GH4 and BMPCC doesn't compress well on youtube and vimeo.
