I love Blackmagic, but they do need to fix their issues with aliasing, moire and IR pollution. I am confident that the noise issue they have currently with their 12k footage will be fixed. Hands down though, the colors that thing produces blows Canon out of the water, the full RGB sensor is incredible. When they get the bugs ironed out, I will absolutely be using this on productions.
Only in specific models.
I agree. While generally I would not mind at all to use this camera, the fact that it is so outlandishly priced compared to what it's competitors are offering is beyond me.
I think Canon still thinks they own the indie digital cinema market that they accidentally created back in 2008. They don't look at what the competition is doing, and when they have to they take the smallest step forward as possible.
The BMPCC6k offers almost the exact same features ergonomically and costs 1/3 of the price. If Canon looked at what could be done at that price point, looked into correcting the issues of the competitor's products and offered it at a comparable and competitive price they would be dominating right now.
They have stuck their heads in the sand too often and now they have to play catch up, but they are still trying to stick their head in the sand while running. I guess that's what you call sticking your head up your bum.
Alexa, RED, and Panavision don't have built in ND. Be careful how you use the term ANY professional video camera. I find the only people who complain about this are documentary filmmakers and amateurs.
Whether we like it or not, 8K is the next thing. Perhaps not for home viewing but in terms of capturing high fidelity and flexibile images (especially as far and going to the cinema is concerned) it is the future. This is a Cinema camera, it's not a vlogging camera, it's not a youtuber camera, it is for high end Cinema, that has been Blackmagic's goal from the beginning and they just made the Industry notice them.
No, this is not true. Fairchild Imaging has provided their sensors from the beginning. Cmosis provided the sensor for the Production camera 4k and the original Ursa. BM returned to Fairchild after Cmosis did not live up to their standards and had them build a custom sensor for the Ursa Mini 4.6k.
The pocket camera 4k and 6k are the only cameras in their lineup that use sony sensors.
Their new 12k Ursa uses a new custom sensor. Fairchild has not yet announced a new sensor, but neither has Sony. I am willing to bet that they are using Fairchild since they have a stronger history with that company.
