BMCC MFT or BMPC 4K ?
So, I've been looking into getting a new camera, and I'm curious what input/advice some of you guys may have?
Two cameras in considering are the Blackmagic models, 2.5k Cinema and the 4K Production.
The 2.5k can run for $1000-1500 used with Davinci Resolve included. A lot of my lenses wouldn't particularly work well with the 2.3x crop, but with an MFT mount, I can get a speed booster and still get a S35 look with my Nikkor glass. The 2.5k camera is better in low light, I've heard, but it has some Moire & aliasing compared to its 4K counterpart, which also has issues of FPN (Fixed Pattern Noise) and isn't the greatest in low light, but has a built in S35 sensor and an EF mount.
What do you guys think? This is really just for narrative work, not so much business. Any opinions or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
