Re: What Don't You Like about the BMPCC?

Well may you ask! Not a word have I heard.

But, come July 25th, 2013, about 8 30 am I fully expect a knock on my door and it will be the delivery person with a smile, and my BMPCC.

Pigs might fly, ha ha ha. No, seriously, Iím optimistic. I already have a lens sitting here just waiting for consummation.

Re: What Don't You Like about the BMPCC?

The place where I preordered my pocket cam, I had also preordered a lens. I happen to notice they charged my card card about 36 hours before updating their site, and my online order status, that my lens was in and shipping. So I keep checking my online card account, to see,if the charge gets initiated.

Re: What Don't You Like about the BMPCC?

My local dealer tells me it'll be here in a week or two, so I'm pretty hopeful.

I've got one lens here waiting, a 14-42 OIS, and a MFT-EF adaptor I'm hoping might work.

Now all I need are a couple of SD cards and a couple of batteries, and ready to hit the ground running.

Which MFT-EF adaptor do you have may I ask?

Is it the Redrock Micro one?

I was hoping that was about 20 or 30% higher. A little bit of over sampling for the debayer process might have been a good idea.
That's exactly why the 2.5K BMCC exists.

The restriction in low light of this camera doesn't help either.
They exist. I bet you won't like the cost.

There's the Zeiss Ultraspeed 6mm T1.3

There's the Century 6mm T1.9 (which also has an excellent 4.5mm attachment)

Otherwise a 12mm T1.6 SLR magic works well.

As you can see I've been shooting with it.

Nothing I can release as yet.

The HotRod PL adaptor.

Works brilliantly out of the box. Has also the option for LW lens support as well.

Re: What Don't You Like about the BMPCC?

That's what John said, he was just pointing out that very fast wide angle lenses do exist.

Re: What Don't You Like about the BMPCC?

Sensor too small. They should have put a 4/3 size one instead so it could use all them lenses easily. The body itself is way too tiny , a bit larger with space to fit a larger capacity battery and a larger screen with touch menus. Besides some other things too many to mention.
