    Agreed on the audio. They just need to get the eq and the level to v1.2, minus the DC offset.

      There was a great improvement back in an early firmware update on the BMCC. It used to be a lot worse.

      My "lay" understanding is that it's not that easy a "fix" if you're trying to maximise DR from the sensor..... So by clipping it early you change the sensor DR performance. It has to be optimised and this can take time to do well. They have a certain amount of resource ay their disposal.

      John, you are correct about the Alexa. I was surprised to discover that.

      It was also on the Red One and took a little while to fix. Hopefully Blackmagic can sort it out for the BMCC.

        Don't worry, I have JUST purchased an EVF with audio meters and a Shotgun mic that includes audio meters and a recording option, so an update fixing all these issues should be right around the corner...

            I bought the cineroid evf because i dont have a ton of money and the meters are passable at best. Essentially, they have it calibrated to where -12 to 0 takes up 85% of the meters width, and it tends to spike a lot. You can see issues with this implementation, in that it is difficult to get your levels around -12 because anything under -12 takes up only 15% of the meter.

            The point of this long story is that i actually decided to email cineroid about the issue and they said they were going to chat with their engineers about the issue. We will see what happens.

              It would be sweet if BMD released a "big" firmware update for the original BMCC at least a week or two before the BMPC-4K starts to ship, assuming the update at least improves things like the BMCC's ProRes Video mode, adds compressed RAW, addresses some audio issues, etc.

              That way people can decide if they want to spend $2K on a "new & improved" BMCC or instead get a $4K BMPC-4K.

              Well, I can dream anyway ...

                Could be the reason why they are holding off the update for the BMCC too.'Yea? Why update an old camera if they are trying to sell a new one.

                  Ahhh, yes, I'm in the same boat as both of you on this one! I have this luck and another version that whenever I'm on a show, I either get killed or the show is cancelled shortly there after.
