Digital Bolex ?. have you seen the position of the XLRs ?

Will be unusable

As for the rest, I think the ENG cams are OK

Cameras are a nightmare in design, I have yet to be near one that you could operate by touch (unlike and pro DSLR)

Black Magic?

The mount choice is utterly dumb, a FF35 mount on a S16 chip

Means you cant use any lenses designed for that sensor

Again virtually unusable

I assume they did that to get the Canon DSLR crowd to buy into their system. One can also use Nikon, PL and Leica R glass with adapters.

And I'm not sure if traditional C-mount lenses can out-resolve EF and ZE lenses. Who knows? We might see the resurgence of 35mm DOF adapters!

I dont think you can use many PL lenses, this is somewhat unclear, I would be interested in a 10-xx S16 lens on that camera

Nikon and canon glass is pretty scarce in the 8-10mm range (that is what is required on this sensor to give a FF28 look or thereabouts)

Its also slow, you cant get any 1.8 canikon lenses in sub 20mm, due to the small sensor f2 will give a nice look similar I geuess to 5.6 on a FF35

Basically there is one plastic canon crappo zoom 10-XX

There is also the Tonka 11-16 which has quite a good rep, also slow at 2.8

Cmount wont go on.

As for lens res, it is important to consider projected area, - a canon lens might resolve 6000 lines across its image circle which is (I guess) 2000 lines on the black magic sensor, being just the middle - that should be enough

I guess lenses designed for small sensors have higher res per unit area of image circle..

Altogether a bad design driven by (as you suggest) a few canon fan boys and no optical engineers apparently

The very opposite of beautiful design

lol...funny how they haven't released side-view pictures of it without a lens...

My recommendations for lenses - 11-16mm f/2.8 Tokina, 17-55mm f/2.8 IS Canon, 70-200mm f/2.8 IS USM L Canon, Samyang 24mm f/1.4 and 35mm f/1.4

There is nothing more versatile when it comes
To lenses than the m4/3 sensors.

The zuiko digital from the pro line are the best
Glasses you can mount to date on a digital body
And recognized as such. They are what the leitz
Were to Analog cams .

I had  the chance  on set to compare  them
With the best canon pro line because a shooter
who was doing the making-of used those zuiko digital
and the quality is absolutly stunning, up with the best Leicas.

If only pana would boost the next gh to more than
8 bits we would compeat with the alexa output for 1000 euros.
(with still the hassles of the mini HDMI etc...)
