pocket cinema camera or canon 600d
on Aug 5, 2014 at 3:22:40 pm

good afternoon to all,

i have decided to buy either the black magic pocket cine camera or the canon 600d for filmmaking but i really don't know which one

please let me ask some questions about the pocket cinema camera

what is the max video duration i can shoot with an sdhcd card (32 gb)
if class 6 for an sdchd card is sufficient for video

some lenses recommendations for landscape and documentary video

my only problem with bot the canon 600d and black magic pocket camera is that you cannot shoot long videos

many thanks in advance

Hi Kathreen - there is no time duration limit on the Blackmagic Camera besides card capacity (you will need more than a Class 6 card to record ProRes, though).

There is, however, a 12 minute continuous recording limit for the 600D. The camera will stop recording and need to be re-started after 12 minutes.

Hope this is helpful!

good afternoon dear Bill and thanks for your kind reply

i apologize for the delay in replying

12 minutes of continue recording is not good news for me especially for any live event....

i think that pocket camera is good but not so good for any pro or any serious shooting unless you invest on some lenses and accessories

i have been told by a professional friend that the d600 have really good video quality and with some carefully post editing you can have an amazing cine look

thanks for your reply

Granted you do need lenses, etc. with the BMPCC, but you'll obtain beautiful 10-bit imagery. And the new firmware lets you choose which flavor of ProRes you want: ProResHQ, ProRes 422, ProResLT or ProRes Proxy, so you can fit more on your memory card. ProRes which is 10-bit (no halos in sky or across graded backgrounds) and gives you beautiful video. And, of course, you can record RAW. You have tremendous flexibility. But ProRes works great. I recently shot a series of interior interviews where we occasionally had windows in the backgrounds. The camera's latitude was amazing (we were shooting ProRes422) and we were able to hold exposure through the windows. And you may still be able to buy a BMPCC for $495. That's a deal.

good morning dear John,

first let me thank you very much for your kind reply and i apologize for the big delay in replying

yes, the price of the pocket camera is really cheap

i agree that the quality would be really good

although i would be needed at least one lens something like 35mm - to 70mm

i doubt if vegas 8 could render anything like raw or pro res

thanks

I'm not familiar with Vegas 8, but DaVinci Resolve Lite is a free download. It will transcode RAW to other output formats.
