Emm from Cheesycam is ready with his video review of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. The quality of the final footage is great but there are some things to consider – the battery drains very quickly, the LCD screen is not good for working outside and there are no audio meters.
I’m not saying this isn’t a a great camera, in fact i’m still excited for my Pocket Cinema Cameras to arrive. I think the size, quality, features, and price of this camera make it a tool that many professionals would love to have available to them. If you can afford the BMPCC and the few items it requires to work smoothly, then by all means go for it. If they unlock the RAW features, this camera will be (dare I say) ‘a game changer’.
