I currently shoot on Canon Xa25 cameras which shoot in the compressed format of AVCHD. I would really like to save my money to get a BlackMagic Camera that Shoots RAW 4k. I'm a total newb at this RAW format and have some questions.
1. What is better to record in? RAW Uncompressed or Compressed Raw? Can I still bring out the detail in post productions with Compressed Raw just as well as if I shot in Uncompressed RAW?
2. Is either RAW format the same thing as 2K, 4k etc or is that different?
3. What about storage capacity? Can I shoot up to say 5 hours of a concert on one SDHC card using Uncompressed RAW or Compressed Raw, 4k etc or do i need a different storage system?
4. Is the IRE levels the same? Like is the 75 percent skin tone or the black level still at 0 with a black magic camera?
I think that's all the questions for now. If I think of More I will add.
