Haha! Loved your video. You are hilarious man! Do standup?
This is just another tool. There isn't just one way to do things, this one I guess offers a consumer friendly way since most don't own Premiere Pro or other pro-editing software.
I saw it as a regular print though. Additional hardware was tripods, external microphones etc. is what I am thinking which is pretty apparent in the video itself. BTW I am no Apple fanboi, my views are based on observations only.
Wondering why did this comment above has negative votes?
A perfect example of dogfooding. I wonder if it was shot in 4K - just kidding...
I own a BMCC 2.5K EF Mount. My answers are based on what I know and personal experiences:
"- No digital aperture control"
It actually does have that, unless the Lens is manual or doesn't support it. I use Canon and Sigma lens, I can control aperture digitally, no problem. I have some manual lens that I use, well they are manual.
"- No shutterspeed control"
This camera uses Shutter Angle (like pro film cameras) which is different from shutter speed. Look it up you need more information on the differences and what that means.
"- White balance control is not for beginners"
If you shoot RAW then white balance is not an issue, you can always correct it in post. On ProRes not that hard either if you know what you are doing. But this camera is really not for beginners.
"- Ultra storage savvy, i.e. 1.4gbps per second
- 500GB ssd records only 25 minutes 4K raw footage, 4K prores422hq footage 1.35 hours, Full HD prores422HQ footage 4.30 hours"
That is just the nature of the beast, for uncompressed RAW footage you have to expect that storage, like with all other cameras that shoot RAW. I have 2.5K, shoots 50 minutes of RAW on 500GB SSD, but can shoot up to 5 hours of ProRez 422
"- You also need Mac Pro with atleast 2 gb graphics card and a 16 gb memory"
I use a PC with 32GB of RAM, Intel i7 Processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 3GB GPU, with 6 hot swappable HDD/SSD slots and a 2K Monitor. Free full version DaVinci Resolve 11 (Came free with the camera). Machine works flawlessly and costs less than Macs.
"- You also need Davinci Resolve [costs $1000] (If using premier cc the cost is 0$)"
Free with camera purchase. They send you a dongle.
"- Requires atleast 1TB space for editing 1 hour video."
Unavoidable if shot RAW. Storage is inexpensive these days.
I do use camera rigs and gimbals and stabilizers for my shoots. This is definitely not a run and gun camera. If you are going for a controlled shooting environment then you'll be just fine if plan ahead. I chose it for it's price point VS capabilities and I am a happy camper. You just have to get used to what you have and learn it all the way. The recent BMCC firmware updates has removed a few earlier issues and added a lot of useful features. You get that film look right from the get go and then the latitude to color grade RAW allows for limitless creativity.
Plan to add external batteries or sources. That's definitely a negative. But to me the positives outweigh the negatives especially with the workflow and the setup I already have.
C100 sounds like a great camera too, I looked into it as well, but settled for BMCC eventually.
Hope this helps.
