Is it bad that I'm extremely turned on by a female filmmaker building her own computer?
Better idea. Get a Canon 50D, ($300) on ebay, install Magic Lantern. You can shoot in RAW close to 1080p. Download bake in LUT picture presets to your camera such as Cinebooster or Lightform C, which boost your color spectrum and effective dynamic range. Canon has better chroma and colors, while the BMPCC wins at dynamic range and luminance. If you're on a budget, this is your best option.
Bmpcc all the way. You can't beat the ability to shoot in RAW AND Prores HQ. 13 stops of dynamic range. With both Film Log and Rec709 to choose from. Its designed for filmmakers in mind. Yeah you'll have to rig it out a bit and get an alternate battery solution and an external monitor. But it will change the game. 4k is nice, but in a UHD codec its still compressed way more than ProRes. I'm used to shooting on a Canon 60D. Time to junk the ol' H.264. Compression and bitrate is an important thing to consider.
