Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera CINECAMPOCHDMFT
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs not for the uniniated 01/19/2014

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.

SIIG SC-SA0L11-S1 PCI-Express 2.0 Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) 2-Port Host Adapter
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I had to purchase this card from another source because it was out of stock at Newegg. Sorry! Installed in a pci-e slot with the capability of X8 (only requires X1). After loading the drivers from the supplied disc, restarted and the card was immediately recognized by Win7. After attaching a WD1Terra drive restarted the machine and the drive was immediately available for formatting.

Cons: I can't think of any

Other Thoughts: The item was not available from SIIG at the time so I called them and got a Recording to leave a messagr and to leave a callback#.Thought I would never hear from them but a few hours later that evening support called back and I was told that they would be in stock in a few weeks. The representative further stated that if I had any problems with the insillation to call back and they woulr resolve my issues . Now that's customer service!
