    That doesn't mean they clipped. "Overexposed" is a relative term, "clipping" is hitting a hard data limit.

    One man's "too soft" is another's "lack of false detail"

    Unless you are lucky enough to be supersampling 8K for 4K delivery, Nyquist can bite you in the ass. There is no perfect decode.

    Not hard to believe. But you're a data point of one. There are also chain smokers that live to be 98, cancer free. Doesn't mean that cigarettes are good for you. ;-)

    As is usually the case, the truth about BMD's quality control can be found somewhere in the balance instead of to one extreme or the other. While you can't factually argue that the Pocket 4K is a...

    Once you get used to being able to reframe a 4K shot for 1080P, it's difficult to imagine losing that ability. For that reason alone, I would strongly consider the P4K if I were in your shoes.

    I highly doubt it does, as it is an issue with V4 color science. You only need to map the color gamut into rec709 space to correct. (Resolve has a OFX plug-in to do this.) There are YouTube videos...

    So, just a note to remind everyone that the Nano motor can use much more power than the typical 5v that can be drawn from a typical USB port. I believe it can support up to 14.5v. The more power you...

    What about a Wooden Camera zip box? It's pretty compact and allows you to use up to two 4x4 without worrying about lens size.

    For my set-up, I have IR cut on the lens itself, and then 4x4 NDs.
