I'm 18 years old still attending high school and trying to start my way in the film world!
The canon Ti series has been exceptional for people who are starting out in the film industry. I have been filming with my t3i for quite a while and I love it.
I read this post earlier today that said "stop obsessing over gear and make some damn films". I'm not saying you are not making stuff. I'm trying to say that there will always be something better then what you have. The bmpcc is a perfectly capable camera. As far as I am concerned you have all the tools to make an amazing film. Remember its the person behind the camera that makes the difference between amateur and professional footage , not the camera.
You should always finish your projects. Even if its bad you have something to compare to future projects to see your progress.
Is that a famous quote?......because it should be! Well said
Lighting and your skill with the camera effect the look of your footage. With dslrs you have to deal with crappy dynamic range. I suggest downloading cinestyle on your camera to optimize it. Also investing into a set of primes is a good option. Hope this helps!
Right now the gh4 blows every other camera out of the water for the price. Canon is slowly being passed up by other camera company's like Panasonic in the video industry.
