    Who cares of this little tuna can video thingy -we want GX7 news. GX7 is the Great Mazinger finally descended upon us. It’s invincible.

    So bad MZgamers doesn’t ship to Argentina

    I had a chance to play with the bmpc very briefly at smpte in Sydney this week, the screen was nice and clear, the one-shot autofocus and iris control worked well with the Panasonic 14mm that was attached and the whole unit seemed really solid. The hdmi feed out was nice and clean too…

      But no RAW and very small sensor, terrible

      • true homer

        Ignorance wins again. Never mind that the output of the bmcc thoroughly kicks everything’s out there ass when it comes to the actual footage, even ff sensor videos, what matters is that you cant brag about the size of the sensor in forums.

          The output of the camera is great my only slight issue is with the 3x crop factor

    • mackajay

      … Yeah super 16 is not “tiny” by any means – but the major draw card of this camera is recording to reasonably compression-artifact free prores, in a highly gradeable colour space…powered m43 lens and the ability to adapt all sorts of lenses… Very exciting! On-board raw would be the icing on the cake, but as-is it will still be a very serious competitor to the hdslr.

    Yes , very small sensor indeed . Speedbooster for this sensor could be make devil from pocket .

  • jake powell

    this sensor size argument really again?! even on a micro four thirds blog? its s16 sized sensor its a well known film size equivalent. with a proper infrastructure of past s16 cinema lenses like zeiss superspeeds to make this camera shine. …

  • alonzo

    Yes you can get super old zeiss 16 . But do not forget you will never be able to use them on full frame ,crop photo,video sensor . I believe sooner or later we will see super 35mm sensor with potential of pocket the same size , and with similar price .

    • Stu5

      Yes everyone is well aware of that alonzo but 16 mm is a very established format it it’s own right. Loads of lenses are available. Plus you can hire these lenses out. It will take a while before super 35mm sensor cameras come down in size and in price. Look at how large the Backmagic one is at the moment. Even then though the lenses will still be larger. The two formats can co exist just like they do with film.

  • Appreciate it, Ample knowledge.
