This review is from: Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera CINECAMPOCHDMFT
Pros: The BMPCC is a Siper16 sensor camera that uses micro4/3 lenses (not included). The camera can shoot in both ProRes422 and cinema raw (with a firmware update).I have tested both the Panasonic and Olympus lenses with mine and both work well.
Cons: You will require the fastest SD cards available if you do not want to have dropped frames ( I use SanDisk Extreme pro and SanDisk Extreme both cards can record at 80 Mbs or better). The camera will give you approx. 32min per card using Pro Res. You will also need several (3 or more) Nikon EL-EN20 batteries (you get aboue23min per battery depending on the on time of the camera).
Other Thoughts: The BBMPCC is not for the casual videographer. The expense of fast SD cards and the short battery life place the camera firmly in the advanced amateur to professional realm. IN addition you will have to process the footage with an editing program ( such as Final cut Pro,Premiere Pro or DiVinci Lite. You can download DiVinci Lite from the BlackMagic site for free.
