    Black Magic m4/3 action cam

    This might interest some m4/3 users. Very interesting video camera:



    https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/pro...rocinemacamera

    - Active m4/3 mount
    - Global shutter
    - DNG RAW
    - Countless ways of expanding with extra equipment

    Now, where's that money.... oops... spent them on the Zeiss 21mm. Have to wait for a few months then, but this will be an interesting companion to my D810, using the same lenses with adapter. Just have to add a WA lens

    Ah... forgot to mention. The sensor is Super 16mm, so crop factor is around 3.

    I saw that when I looked at their website. Not a problem. I'm sure there will be plenty of usefulness from it. They show it with the Panasonic 14mm in quite a few photos, which makes sense: that's a 28 equivalent on FourThirds, on Super16 it's EFoV of a 42mm lens, a good focal length for a lot of uses.

    You'll need a Panasonic or Olympus 7-14 for an ultrawide EFoV 21mm lens. :-)

    Since the sensor is smaller will it handle the rolling shutter or jello effect one gets from fast pans or side motion?

    It has global shutter, so there's no jello.

    There's also a "studio version" with 4K which is slightly more expensive, $1,295 vs. $995

    And look at the accessories... this is a very cool system

    Yeah, a system that has the fastest lenses possible (using a speedbooster)!

    I had forgotten about that. There's even a special speed booster for Black Magic and the Super 16mm format. An excellent ultra WA lens for this system will the obviously be the relatively inexpensive Sigma 8-16mm plus speed booster.

    I suppose there are reasons why he has come up with a product like this and I haven't
