It’s Really Happening. Anyone Else Excited?

I just got confirmation about a little package on it's way as we speak, and will be arriving in my mailbox tomorrow. Now I don't want to spoil all the excitement, but I guess I'll leave a few clues as to what I should expect to receive tomorrow.

It's mostly #Black with Tan accents, and I think it's just #Magic how they've managed to make this item #Pocket sized and affordable for the #Cinema market....

    &Oman M - I have a GH3 for wide angle (and often stabilized) shots, and for slow motion. The BMPCC will be nice for normal/tele work and is better for post production since it is 4:2:2 raw. Excellent for green screens etc.

  2. Yeah, great for you perhaps, but what about the rest of us? Plus, the 3x focal length is a killer, how can we go wide angle? What about 60fps? I think a little GX7 will do me just fine!

    @MJ: You're comparing two totally different cameras. I like the Canon Raw look, but I don't own one. Super 16 is one of the best frame sizes ever for run and gun shooting, and incredible glass - can't wait to go back to shooting it.

    People who are getting their pocket cams, can you please post were and when you ordered them so the rest of us have a little idea on when we might get ours. Thanks.

    No. Not excited at all.
    1. Magic Lantern broke the code for Raw on DSLRs
    2. Ridiculous Crop Factor
    3. Not good in low light

    @Brad - I'll speak more about this tomorrow when the item arrives. I'll have some bad news, and possibly some very good news for a very very small handful of people.

    @Emm, when did you order yours? I pre-ordered on 4.10 via Adorama so I an wondering where that puts me in line?
