Buying USED Black Magic Pocket Camera from EBAY?

I reside in Pakistan and would love to get hold of a camera with 4K RAW capabilities though on extreme tight budget so thinking about buying a used (mint condition) Black Magic Pocket Camera along with some cheap EF to MFT adapter (cursed by EF mounts).

Is it wise or recommended to buy such cameras in used condition from Ebay?

Also whats the max ISO for BMPC for low light for grain free footage? is it 800iso or 1200iso?

Please advice, thanks.

BMPCC is not 4k. And if u want to shoot RAW DNG plz consider tremendous post production and High end editing solutions.

Bmpcc gives u optional prores HQ.

Max ISO is 1600 min 200.

and don't confuse with BMCC Which is either 2.5k or 4k. Chk out with blackmagic design site for other requirements models and specification.

There will be grain at 1600 ISO but it's a very film-like grain so I don't mind it.

I've shot at 1600 ISO.. results were amazing... if you go to the last part of this music video i shot with the walking scene you will see what i mean. Really sweet camera but you need the resources to handle the footage.
