I've owned and sold, the BMPCC, the GH4 and A7SII. The Long story short, the BMPCC is a pain to shoot with do the periphery gear you need to add to it to make it work (monitor, speed booster, battery pack, pile of hard drives for storage). The A7S II is the best of the bunch, for anything you plan to release online. The camera noise on the GH4 and BMPCC doesn't compress well on youtube and vimeo.
Young filmmakers need to get a life, or read about interesting lives in books. Articles like these, are addictive reassurance. I'm starting to feel like this whole site is one big stalling tactic, distracting young people from writing shooting and editing.

The global shutter was the only thing that interested me about this camera. Curious if the new sensor was scrapped completely. Perhaps this the Pocket sensor has been added to the new Micro housing? I was disappointed with the noise and moire / aliasing in the pocket, so I sold it.
Does it charge while recording? For me, that was the biggest limitation of the previous generation of Sony's.
