    Mostly GH4 in the beginning, Skip to about 4:00 for the two cams.

    Interesting. The resolution drop was a little jarring during the slo mo.

    The GH4 is shaper but I still think the the BMCC has more of a film look. It's a tiny bit softer and the colours are a little bit more flat (this of course could your grading).

    I also noticed that the wake has some blue/green tinges in them on the BMCC where as the GH4 they are all white, once again it could be your grading.

    Clipped highlights in the crashing waves and reflections look REALLY rough on the Bmpc. Really stark and slightly magenta colored. Hopefully this could have been avoided by stopping down a bit, but I fear this scene just required too much DR.

    Was this with the internal recording on the gh4 or with the external? If it's internal I'm selling my gh3 and getting a gh4 instead of a pocket...

    Highly doubt it was external. You would only want a external recorder if you wanted to record 4k in raw.

    Here's another video done with the GH4, best I've seen yet.


    Compare this to the BMPCC


    Like some of the comments in the video are saying, I still think the BMCC has a more film-like look to it and has a bit more dynamic range.

    I'm still trying to decide whether to get a BMPCC or a GH4. The decision is pretty hard, but I'm still leaning toward the Pocket Camera.

    I got a GH4 last week and I can say that its nearly perfect in most of my shooting situations. With that being said, I am not getting rid of my BMPCC. It has a special look and no doubt I'll turn to it in certain situations.
