Tom, I'm sure BMD is not ignoring high frame rates, it's just not a feature of the current cinema cameras. HFR is one of the most requested features to add to their cameras as they concentrate their efforts on delivering a high quality image in raw, ProRes, and DNxHD solution for an economical price. I would expect higher rates perhaps topping off at 48 fps or hopefully 60 fps in the future but that doesn't help Chaz today! They probably want to achieve this using the full active sensor area (2432x1366 on the BMCC and 3840x2160 on the BMPC4K) because they want you to have the ability to render or downscale your deliverables from the highest resolution available on a given camera. Contrast this with most digital film camera manufacturers that offer very high frame rates by increasingly cropping the sensor. Their approach just takes some more time and likely requires faster processors and better cooling and of course reliable faster recording media (SSDs). So hope you'll see there is an upside to their approach and they are listening to requests.
