Amazing quality footage for the price
The one thing I do not like about the camera is the menu. Most settings need to be changed via the menu by navigating away from the current view.
Short battery life with the default battery.
I enjoy using the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC). It has excellent quality and is portable enough to bring with me to places without drawing excess attention. Canon and Nikon Lenses can be placed on the camera with the right adapters. I use the 24-105mm L Lens for my camera.
One thing to be aware of is the Crop factor. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crop_factor
This can be adjusted with a Speed Booster” which can be expensive depending on what you need (around $100-$650).
- From my research, the Black Magic Pocket Cinema camera does not support a card like this one:
SanDisk Extreme PRO SDHC/SDXC UHS-II
The Extreme Pro SD Card that has 95MB/s is sufficient.

- Not all video editors support RAW Cinema DNG files. If you are looking for a free option, try the free version of DaVinci Resolve:
- Buy extra batteries and a charger.
