    I completely agree with the general sentiment here. The P4k is an excellent camera, but I'm bummed by the DSLR form factor... a magnesium body would have been welcome as well. Here's hoping for an...

    You should check out Mocha Pro. There's a bit of a learning curve, but it's a much more mature product and you have a lot more control over the process of object removal.

    Understood - I'm just saying that they could remove DNxHD from the record tab if they're not actually going to add it... that doesn't seem like something that would take much effort.

    I believe BMD have stated that global shutter wasn't possible, but they could remove DNxHD from the record tab... at this point, it just seems dishonest. :-)

    Sooo… does anyone think that BRAW will come to the Ursa Mini 4k and 4.6k? It's been more than a year since these cameras were updated and today seems like it would have been a good time for BMD to...

    I haven't run into this with my UM4.6k. I did blow the preamps on the camera a couple of years ago, but BMD replaced the camera quickly. Other than that, audio capture using external microphones has...

    Yup, same story in the US. If providers are struggling to offer better than (I'm guessing) 3Mbps content at 1080p, how realistic is 8k delivery at a decent bitrate?

    It will be interesting for sure. I don't see myself adopting 8k at any point, but I agree, it is fun to watch technology develop. :-)

    I don't think 8bit 4:2:0, even at 8k is competition for 12bit raw or 10bit ProRes recording at 4k.

    There should be a table for compressed raw recording times in the manual (like there is for Cinema DNG)... probably not for the VBR version of BRAW though, because file size will depend on the...

    Doesn't Teradek offer a fairly inexpensive wireless transmission system.. like, below 2k for transmitter and receiver? I think Cinegears definitely does.

    This is great, thanks for putting this together! Have you cut P4K with Ursa Mini 4.6k footage yet? How close do these cameras match out of the box?

    I wasn't making a technical argument... just pointing out that BMD does state in their marketing materials that the P4K has a 4/3rds sensor. Can you see where there might be some confusion?
