Is BMCC 2.5k really bad?
I'm new to film making. Recently, I purchased a Blackmagic Cinema Camera 2.5k. My goal is to become a music video producer. I also plan to shoot documentaries with the camera.
A friend of mine who is very experienced came by the house recently and said that Blackmagic is a terrible camera for shooting music videos. According to him, the 'color temperature' is hated by most music video producers. Further he pointed out that the camera cannot shoot slow motion (which I already know).
He recommended the Panasonic GH4 or Sony AH7s ii.
Now, I spent way more acquiring the BMCC. My question is, did I make a mistake? Does anyone have any experience with these cameras?
