May I get your opinions on this Cinema Camera Deal?
Hello. So this question is posed to more experience cinematographers/filmmakers alike. There's this bundle in my area for the Black Magic Cinema Camera 2.5k MFT mount. It's selling for $1,600 and includes:
Blackmagic 2.5K Cinema Camera
Blackmagic Cinema Camera Handles for handheld shots
256G 2.5" SSD
External battery pack
MFT to Canon lens adapter
MFT to Nikon lens adapter
Rokinon 35MM 1.4 manual lens
Opteka Shoulder Rig
Opteka Follow Focus
Lilliput 7" field monitor
Hoodman Hoodloupe Optical Viewfinder
All in one bundle. I wanted to know, as a beginning filmmaker in terms of gear I am new. Is this a great deal to craft beautiful films on and learn the practices of cinematography? (taking to account latest firmware fixes etc.) I understand the main gripe in BMCC is the cost to get it running but if I'm correct this bundle covers a large chunk of that. Thanks and please no brand loyalty or hate just based on the tech science and experience!
P.S: I do not own any lenses so cropping of footage from lenses I own is not an issue because I don't have any at all. I'm also not big on sensor size, I wanted the Bolex (and still do).
