    Is there any good reason why we're in the last week of August and there's still no footage?

    Are we missing something?

    This is the first BMD camera I haven't pre-ordered because I haven't seen anything from it. And I have to know the lower bit rates can meet and or exceed 400mbs All-i GH5 and Eva-1 footage.

    I think you may be mixing up the Mbps per second with MBs (bits vs bytes). The PCC4K has a way higher bit rate than the EVA-1 or GH5.
    The PCC4K is 272 MBs which would be 2176 Mbps comparatively. If the GH5 is 400Mbps then it would only be 50MBs.

    So the Pocket 4K has about 5X the bit rate of those other cameras.

    That's specifically for losslessly compressed 4K DCI RAW at 30 fps.

    How bout changing the title or adding a "?", it feels like a cheesy digital ad.

    Sure got my hopes up haha, but Tim's dead right with the data rates. The pocket 4k is much higher than the gh5. I think this is going to be a bigger factor than most think especially if they're coming over from Sony etc.

    It has about the same data rates as the original ursa, I was looking at footage we shot with that last week and image quality was amazing on that camera (when well lit haha)

    No codec camera under $10,000 has ever equaled BMD RAW I.Q.
    This is absolutely going to include every flavor of GH5 as well. It's a fundamental limitation of the codecs. Nothin' personal.
    Cameras: Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Blackmagic Pocket Camera (x2), Panasonic GH2 (x2), Sony RX100 ii, Canon 6D, Canon T2i,
    Mics: Sennheiser, AKG, Shure, Sanken, Audio-Technica, Audix
    Lights: Every Chinese clone you can imagine

    But really I just want this camera already. My mind keeps flip flopping between the ease of GH5 ibis, Dual Iso of the GH5s but the 4k could easily calm my mind by blowing them both away in IQ at 1300 dollars.
