I bought a LaCie DJI Copilot 2TB drive for backups.
I just plug my T5 into it (USB-C !) and, using the Android app on my phone, can backup the whole thing without using a laptop. It also has a built-in SD card reader. I just love it !
The copilot has a built in battery to charge phones but I haven't tried charging the Pocket's battery with it (yet).
Great shots, Daniel !
I got my Pocket this week and didn't feel like I had to just go out without any preparation or plan, shoot whatever's in front of me, and post it on the web to be the laughing stock of pros and amateurs alike.
Other users have done stellar tests and the world doesn't need more crappy shots posted as "so-called" test footage.
But hey: this is NoFilmSchool. The once great site that has gone to shit, thanks to VRenee and all the other idiot re-bloggers trying to pass as "journalists".
(Guys, bare with me: writing "journalists" made me spit my Canada Dry out of my nose).
That being said...
Battery life is horrible. If you do any shooting at all, you'll need a ton of LP-E6. Worst thing is: it's hard to find batteries that will work at all !
Out of the 5 batteries I already had (used a few times on a Video Assist), two just turn the camera on for a few seconds, then die. The battery included with the cam has unreliable "meter" info: it can be fully charged and show 60%, then it falls rapidly to, let's say, 30%, last for 20 minutes or so, then shuts down after showing 25%.
There really is now way of knowing if the "no-name" LP-E6 will work at all. A shot in the dark.
Image quality is stellar. But... UHD at 24p in Prores fills a 64GB SD card in about 10 minutes.
So: if you want that camera, you'll get an incredible deal. But be prepared to invest in some king of external power solution and buy tons of storage.
The test wasn't for:
1-A very interesting story
2-First rate actors
3-High production value non related to camera.
Just because the test criteria was irreverent from your own doen't invalidate this particular test.
