Hi everyone, how cool do these BMC's look! (both spec & design build wise)

I've got 2 Panasonic GH13's so I'm running m4/3 lenses (14-140 & 100-300), also canon, nikon & minolta m4/3 adaptors for a few lenses.
Vote + 1 for the m4/3 option for me.
But the biggest thing for me is the option for using my 50-500mm Sigma canon (BMC has a 2.3 crop?)
I shoot mainly surfing hence the user name.
I've been waiting for the birger mount...don't need to now, BMC here I come!

04-23-2012, 05:02 AM

Hello everyone. #1 in line at Markertek. Can't wait to get it.

04-23-2012, 07:42 AM
Hi All, I'm still a film student but really interested in this camera. Preordered already. Can't wait.

04-23-2012, 08:12 AM
Today's my birthday and I get this for a gift! This is awesome! I think I'm going real name here...

04-23-2012, 08:15 AM
Whoa! BMC gets its own site off dvxuser!

Ryan Glover
04-23-2012, 08:43 AM
Cool that it got its own site already!
Very excited for the camera. What you get for the price is stunning.

04-23-2012, 08:44 AM
Ah, this answers my question about not being able to edit.

Thanks for all your effort, and I'm sure I'll be spending *lots* of time here! Here's to the end of July coming fast...

I'm a 7D user, and have a dozen or so lenses - Canon, Zeiss, Nikon prime - that I believe will be of great use with the BMC. I'm just thrilled with the power of this new tool, and am thankful I'm geared up with an 8-drive RAID array. I know it will be put to good use with those 12-bit RAW files!

And if anyone's looking for custom original music for their projects, I majored in music at Brown (focusing on synths) and have done lots of industrial film / commercial scoring, in addition to playing live at Burning Man. Feel free to contact me for a demo - I'm good! (not cheap, but good! :) )

Glad to see such a good turnout for our open house.

Was presently surprised to see this forum set up. Have my camera preordered and looking forward to getting my grubby little paws on it.


04-23-2012, 04:30 PM
Hello everyone! "Just" 3 months to wait... :)

04-23-2012, 04:45 PM
Hi, I preordered too. Yehhaaa

04-23-2012, 05:09 PM

These are great times

04-23-2012, 05:39 PM
Thanks for the dedicated forum, Jason. Howdy, all.

04-23-2012, 05:52 PM
Sounds Good.

04-23-2012, 08:25 PM
Very exciting. Really love the concept of this camera but not sure if I can use it. Looking forward to investigating in this forum

Hi, posting for the first time.

Looking forward to this, can't wait to see the DIY section here. On that note, the beauty of the camera design, to me, is that it's so flat and square. The rail-based rig systems we've all used for 35mm lens adapters, big ass matteboxes, follow focs, or whatever, seem like such a throwback to a different time. One hope I have for the BMC is that it gets us re-thinking camera rigs, shows people that a 10 dollar piece of aluminum flatbar in their garage is just is good as any wildly overpriced 15mm set of anodized tubes. Pre-ordered and loving it.

04-24-2012, 03:48 AM
Hi everybody!

User 38 here :)

This camera is so exciting, I think I'll be following this forum on a regular basis.

Just signed up after being linked from DVXUser. Good times ;)

06-21-2012, 11:09 AM
Greetings all. Heard good things about this camera, even fom some seasoned pros who are leery of digital everything. Can't wait for it to b released.

06-24-2012, 02:25 PM
Hi my name is Richie I am a VFX artist, matte painter and professional ENG camera guy. I am moving more into independent film making so with a great deal of trust and trepidation pre ordered my BMC. I aim at a budget to make it a cine camera for hire with operator (my self). It will also be used for matte painting and vfx plate work.

Hope to join in and learn from this community of nervous pre buyers,


06-28-2012, 09:51 AM

I guess I should have said: "Hello" here before I posted elsewhere. I didn't mean to break a rule; I was just excited. Sorry Jason.

I joined in April, but had nothing to offer until now ;)

Note to self: Always read the FAQ

Hi Everyone,

I'm a long-time DVXUser member, Steve Strickland, and now a BMCUser junky. Been lurking here forever and finally decided to post. I decided to go back to my legacy screen name from years past.:cool:

Me and my buddy are going in together on the BMC Cam and are early on the B&H pre-order list. This cam is going to be amazing!

Jesse Borkowski
07-19-2012, 07:44 AM

I pre-orded my BMCC a little bit ago and am looking forward to using it on a feature documentary that I have coming up. This looks like a great community to have and support as we all start the learning curve on this camera.

07-24-2012, 01:39 PM
Hey guys,

Been lurking on the forum for a month or two now, finally stopped being lazy and registered.

I originally preordered with bhphoto back in April, canceled and preordered with Safe Harbor Computers in June ( I know, but the free ssd was a win).

hello to all,

I've been also lurking on these forums since they almost started, and ended registering in the end. (better late then never they say? ;))

Originaly from Norway (polish parents) but now in Poland and soon to be a 5th year student of Cinematography at the Polish Filmschool in Lodz.
If interested here is some of my work (some movies have yet to be uploaded, like my 2 first year and 1 2nd year movie, all shot on 35mm) sorry for the lack of showreel, which im trying also to make.


07-28-2012, 05:41 PM
First post here :) Just saying hi and glad to be part of this forum!

07-28-2012, 06:21 PM

Just noticed this thread after posting for a while...so "hey everybody"

07-28-2012, 10:16 PM
I've been snooping here for a while now, but I won't make any more posts until I get my camera. Then, the questions will begin!


07-30-2012, 12:58 AM
Hi, I'm Chris. I'm a support representative for Blackmagic Design. I have been helping out with your DeckLink cards, VideoHubs and Mini Converters from the EMEA region office since 2008, but recently moved to our office in Japan. You may also know me from the occasional post on another BMD forum. I don't want to get anyone too excited, my registration here is not officially sanctioned by Blackmagic, I really only registered here because I've been lurking for a while, and now I can't keep up with the posts I have and haven't read without an account. I also think the Cinema Camera is the most exciting product we've announced to date and can't wait to see what everyone will be doing with it.

I don't have any direct link to the production of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, so I won't be able to answer many of the questions you may have. So I will be keeping relatively, if not entirely quiet until the cameras are out there in the wild and being used. At which point I will try and help as best I can, when I can. If you do have technical questions or requests however, I do recommend giving your regional Blackmagic office or distributor a call, or indeed sending a support request via the support section on the Blackmagic website.

Hi. Like many I've been lurking here for a while and now am saying hello.

I have preordered the BMCC (although doubt I'm in the very first run) and can't wait until we all get our hands on it.

And as a bit of background on me, i've been working in TV for the past decade, mainly as a producer / director but also as a lighting cameraman - mainly on ENG type cameras. Having access to most cameras at work I've never considered shelling out money for my own camera until now.

Looking forward to sharing our experiences of the Cinema Camera soon and thanks to JB for the sneak previews all of which indicate that I've made the right choice in preordering

Hi everyone.

08-02-2012, 01:49 PM
Hello everyone!

After coming to this site virtually daily for the past month, I finally joined up. Pre-ordered the BMCC on 4/24 through BH, very excited, to start making films with this little beast. I come from the theater world, so my strengths are in story and working with actors. I am very much a newbie with most of the tech specs with this camera(and most cameras for that matter), and this site has been a godsend for me as make a huge leap, from my minimal camera experience with the HV30 and 7D to the brave new world of the BMCC.

Rock n roll!

08-02-2012, 04:53 PM
Ah no wonder. I'm looking forward to buying the BMCC soon! Hopefully it won't be too difficult getting my hands on one when I can afford it.

08-03-2012, 09:12 AM

Hi everyone! Just would like to introduce myself - I'm a recent graduate of a small midwest college here in the US. I was fortunate enough to get a job right away as a video editor and have been eyeing the BMCC since NAB. I have not pre-ordered yet, but I hope to before the end of the week in order to get the safe harbor deal.

Looking forward to talking and sharing our creative-ness in this community!

Hey there all,
I can't wait to get my hands on my own BMC. Seemed to be quite the game changer at NAB.
I've owned 3 RED Ones and a Scarlet... LOVE shooting in RAW.
Now just ship the darn things!;)

08-22-2012, 07:42 AM
Jason, Any chance of adding a locked thread about the release of the camera? One where if there's any actual news, it can be submitted to you and then you post it? In doing this, I think most who are here and ready to buy the camera would truly appreciate "just the facts" and not have to browse through 89+ pages of chatter to the info.

Hello, all. If you have just joined, you may have tried to edit your profile and realized that you cannot. There is a necessary buffer in place to help prevent a particularly pesky type of spammer.

To be promoted to full permissions, you need only make a single post on the forum. Feel free to use this thread for that purpose and to introduce yourself if you like. You should gain full permissions within the hour.

Thanks for your understanding.

Dude, I totally pulled a n00bie move and asked "Why can't I change my profile?" without checking the forum FAQs. D'oh!

Anywho, I'm Amy O'Brien, AmyO most places on the 'Nets. Amy Beth O'Brien in film credits. Got a Pocket Cinema Camera on pre-order with a local dealer that has a pretty short list, so hopefully it will be here soon!

Ah, permission granted.

Hi, my name is Jamie and I am looking to enter into the fray.

I am strictly a hobbyist. My wife is an avid photographer, and I have a pretty nice arsenal of nikon glass to use. Hoping to learn a lot and figure out what the minimum that I actually have to buy.

I am leaning towards one of the "bundles" that come with an external battery and a speedbooster.

Hi I'm Kyle Messina, a cinematographer/camera assistant. I co-own a media production company called Summit Collective. We at Summit are eagerly looking forward in purchasing a BMCC rig very soon.

Normally we shoot on RED but have to rent it. Hopefully this BMCC will satisfy our needs on commercial shoots and short films.

09-25-2013, 10:54 AM
thanks for the chance to give me access to this portal of knowledge about my bmcc

Hello all from Brazil.

I'll be getting my MFT BMCC in a couple of weeks, I'm sure it's going to be a challenging but rewarding journey from my hacked GH2 + GH1 workflow. I'm hoping to learn a lot about grading while exploring the new possibilities raw and resolve offer. Glad to be able to use all my vintage glass and adapters even if the excellent Lumix lenses are useless on it.

If you'd like, please check out my current commercial/institutional portfolio (http://telecinese.com) or find me in twitter: @telecinese_film (http://twitter.com/telecinese_film). Let's talk!

Hi folks,

New member joining the group here. Just got a bmpcc from my wife for Christmas, and that's after much protests from the lady since freelance jobs requiring this camera are few and far in between. But I really love the sample images produced by this camera and want to learn as much as I can in using it.

01-07-2014, 08:38 AM
Hello everybody! Greatful this forum exists. Just got my pocket cinema and have felt like a noob ever since. Can't wait to share and soak up some knowledge.


01-10-2014, 03:54 PM
Looking forward to learning and sharing with everyone... just finished putting together my BMCC MFT kt pictured below.


02-07-2014, 07:44 PM
Hello all,

First poster here and new BMPCC owner. Kudos to Jason and company on this great forum! I am looking forward to getting to know the camera and it's pros and cons to squeeze the most out of it as possible and appreciate such a cool community to become a part of. Thanks much!

02-13-2014, 11:16 PM
Hi everyone. Took a while but finally joined! Been lurking on here since I first heard about the BMPCC in December, learning about it. Finally purchased one last Wed. (I also own a Panny GH2) and shot a tv commercial this past weekend with it. Awesome camera! I am not really a cinematographer, more of an all-around filmmaker, but I love being able to afford such an incredible cinema camera for whenever inspiration strikes (and the odd paying job here and there…)

02-14-2014, 05:18 PM

Welcome brother...

Funny thing happened the other day as I was working in Resolve and I realized I actually know what I'm doing now, lol. When I first started it was like looking into a pilot's cockpit. The bmpcc is an incredible camera and look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Hi!! I LOVE the audio line level inputs in my bmpcc! With my AKG414ULS into a nice preamp and a balanced output, the audio sounded as good as my RME Fireface 800 in my opinion! Audio is very high quality in my opinion. Rock on!

I like Resolve, and the Micro is tempting, but why I really registered is to perv my way through that 95 page Pocket rig thread. Hey.

09-21-2015, 11:44 AM
I'm an old member of the DVXuser forum (Tommygun). I started out with a Panasonic DVX100A with an SGpro r3 35mm adapter, and when the DSLR wave hit for good I went over to a Canon 7D. I never quite liked the Canon as much as my old rig and it even managed to get some water damage (or rust on the inside), which unfortunately wasn't covered by either insurance or warranty, and I was left with no camera.

That sucked hard. but I had started studying and I put filmmaking on hold. But, now I have my BA in economics and innovation, and I'm ready to make some filmlove again. I just purchased the BMPCC and I'm looking forward to learning a lot from you guys, I have a lot to catch up on!

I will first and foremost focus on C-mount lenses (or old school lenses). I've seen a lot of footage from many types of lenses and I really like the look from them, and they're dirt cheap.
