    Same OS doesn't mean same capabilities, because the hardware itself is different. Same with computers - 2 machines with the same OS won't necessarily have the same capabilities, depending on the hardware.

    Thee decimal places means you can shoot at precise multiples of a project rate, so in a 25 FPS project I could shoot at 6.250FPS or 3.125 an retime to exactly 25 fps sync playback. Combined with a true 180 deg shutter then you get some very interesting effects. This is called step printing. It's the OPPOSITE of short shutter. It gives you a long shutter with sync sound.

    Think the opening of Gladiator or Wong Kar Wai.

    It would also help in some scenarios where you have a flicker from a monitor. So being able to shoot at shot at 37.876 FPS might be the perfect frame rate to have zero flicker on a monitor or an exit light that's flickering in the back of shot.

    In 25 FPS countries you often want to shoot at weird flicker free window frame rates like 33.333 FPS as well.

    That makes sense. I'm all for having options I wouldn't even think to need, but one of the things BMD has been praised for is their simple and useful camera GUI. I'm sure it's something they try to balance. I'd love to have a switch deep in the menu that could be toggled to unlock all sorts of functions. Kind of like a blackMagic Lantern Mode or something.

    Where is the documentation on "Off-Speed Frame Rate?"

    And more importantly: is the new Pocket 4K going to have it?
    This sounds promising. I would be very happy if it went as low as 1 or 2 fps. We'll see soon enough!

    Or like the shutter angle, you can punch in manual exposure times ?

    seems reasonable. Only reason they wouldn't were if they intended to keep the bmpcc on sale as the s16 camera but since it's gone from the website that's unlikely . Another reason might be to have to be a feature of the higher end cameras but considering this is replacing the s16 bmpcc I'd expect it in there at some point, maybe not right away.

    The two Micro cameras remain as S16 cameras. Only high end csmera would be the Ursa Mini Pro which has a 2K window that is close to S16, but still a little smaller than the BMPCC sensor.
    Cheers

    NEED to know how the DJI Ronin-S may work with focus pulling on the BMCP4K and which lenses would be usable?

    Anyone using this already?
