Comparing the BMPCC 4K | Mirrorless Cameras | Part 1

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

Close

Finally, we’ve had the chance to compare the BMPCC 4K to other cameras. This is going to be the first video in our camera comparison series, so if there’s something you’d like to see, leave a comment down below and we’ll hopefully be able to test it!

In this video we tested:

A7s II: https://www.proav.co.uk/sony-a7s-ii-35mm-camera

A7R III: https://www.proav.co.uk/sony-alpha-a7r-mark-iii-digital-camera-body

GH5: https://www.proav.co.uk/panasonic-gh5-lumix-mirrorless-camera

GH5s: https://www.proav.co.uk/panasonic-lumix-dmc-gh5s-mirrorless-camera-body-only

EOS R: https://www.proav.co.uk/canon-eos-r-digital-full-frame-mirrorless-camera

This video was filmed using:
Main Camera – Canon C300 MKII: https://www.proav.co.uk/canon-eos-c300-mark-ii
Lens – Sigma 18-35mm f1.8: https://www.proav.co.uk/sigma-18-35mm-f-1-8-dc-hsm-art-lens-canon-fit

We have made a new video, investigating why the Blackmagic clips at +3 and if raw would help that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItdE_rsv014

Hi Great Video
Very helpful

Which do you recommend to purchase for a beginner film maker, to shoot short films

I’m tore between Blackmagic 4K pocket. Or the EOS R to shoot in there C-log

Thanks

Fast forward 1 year and we now have a Speed Booster for the EOS R! Does that make it a contender?

John’s Films says:

GH5 Vlog has terrible noise in low light – the Cine profiles are a much better test in lower light…

Martin Lachmair Photo Video says:

great and useful comparison! thanks for that and greetings from austria.

Juan Ignacio Coda says:

Hi, in a few days I will be shooting a theater play with the bmpcc4k. Do yo have any idea how to set a similar function to "Full Auto Exposure" or at least a way to avoiding the exposure jumps of the auto-shutter-speed function? Thank you. Regards from Argentina

Tatsūkiji says:

I usually do -1 on hue for the panasonic to remove the magenta color shift. Good test btw.

Carlos Moral films says:

Canon color => Easy and fast workflow => more projects at time => +€ 😉

certainly joel says:

Do you think prores proxy is useable on the BMPCC 4K?

The Filmmaking Channel says:

I just want to say that the girl is cute.

starky497 says:

Perhaps someone could enlighten me. The methodology in this test increases ISO to achieve over exposure. The problem with this methodology is that doing so shifts the dynamic range but also the range of stops above and below middle grey that the sensor can resolve detail at. I think it would have been better to change another exposure variable and shoot each camera at its native iso, a more useful comparison because we are not sure if the clipping at +3 would still be happening if the camera was shooting at native iso. Thoughts?
