    Hey all!

    So Iím VERY happy with the new pocket 4K. Itís everything I expected and more!

    A couple of dum dum questions, so what better place to ask!

    Can you do prores at 120fps? I couldnít seem to go past 60, but I switched to RAW and had the full spectrum.

    When I go into playback, how do I go back to my record screen? Iíve found I just press the record button, but sometimes that starts recording when I donít want it to. Is there an easier way that Iím stupidly missing?

    Thirdly, I have some dirty, rough, run n gun footage I shot with my mates taking a stroll to test the camera. Iím nervous about posting it.

    Anybody genuinely interested? Itís essentially the first shots I took with the camera. Lots of challenging lighting and pushed colour grading.

    UPDATE: https://vimeo.com/295925638

    Could anyone embed it?

    .
    Yes, but only if you window (or crop) into the sensor. You get the full 120 fps in RAW because it automatically crops by default.

    I think you just have to press the playback button again to return to the recording screen.

    Doesn't work in my case. Pressing the record button brings you back to the regular interface.

    Of course! Agh I'm so stupid. So when I chose prores, it wouldn't go past 60 because I was using the down sampled 1080. Makes sense!

    Pressing the playback button only plays the media that you're on. So you press the menu button and it opens the menu. Pressing the menu button again, takes you back to playback mode. Pressing play in the menu, takes you to playback mode.

    There must be a simpler way without accidentally recording?

    Bmpcc and the BMMCC both use the record button to return.

    Hmm. It’s something so small, but so annoying! Did you ever find yourself accidentally recording too?

    During the time of shooting the video I’ve linked above, I had three instances where it accidentally recorded. It really isn’t a major issue, I just feel like it could be fixed so easily!

    Never had problems on the BMCC!

    It's lovely, Very nice showcase of what the camera can do with virtually nothing.
