It's a 1.17x crop of an APS-C sensor, which is a 1.52x crop factor when compared to full frame sensors. So to shoot 4K... it's essentially 1.69x crop factor, which is unfortunate.
I love how he's selling us the "doing it digitally" is the same as using their filters. I'd love to see how their digital ND filter works :)
Instead of spending $1K on the plugin, I'll just wait for the free Lumetri update to Premiere CC 2015. Seems faster and more powerful, if you ask me.
Looks cool — but it's $999 for the drone, then you need another $399 for the gimbal and another $499 for Hero 4 (plus any accessories). So you're looking at almost $2k when it's all said and done.
$1299 for the Phantom 3, seems like a better bargain. The DJI gimbal looks a little smoother to my eye as well.
The camera pictured is called the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera
Two different cameras. The Ursa Mini is a Super35 sensor. This camera (shown on a drone) is a S16 sensor.
I can't think of a single person I would recommend this camera to. It's out of reach for your basic consumers (expensive, c-log requires significant grading knowledge, the codec is data-intensive so you need bigger hard drives, and C-Fast 2.0 is also expensive and not as ubiquitous as SD cards and readers), but you aren't going to find any prosumers interested in this either. Back in 2008, prosumers flocked to DLSRs because it finally gave us freedom from our fixed-lens, small sensor cameras. So I just don't see a place for this.
Manufacturers caught on that we loved the image from DSLRs, the option to change lenses and use larger sensors... but we missed the form-factor of our beloved DVX100. So they started developing cameras like the Sony FS100, the Canon C100 and so-on. I'm just trying to figure out where Canon though we might want the opposite of that; the image of a fixed-lens, small sensor camera inside the ergonomics of a DSLR. It just doesn't make sense to me.
