This camera has no rival for it's value.
Domex, 17.01.2021
This is simply the best camera you can get in this price range (and even higher)

I just have clarify one important thing: It's a cinema camera, not a camera for photography or vloging. So I don't really think it's worth for people who are not into professional/half-professional shooting. The camera has no stabilization, cause the manufacturer counts with you, having an external rig, stabilizer or a tripod.

Pros:

The most stunning thing is the sensor - the dynamic range grants you so many post production/color possibilities.
The menu of the camera is the most comprehensible and the most intuitive menu I've ever seen.
You have a variety of very useful inputs into the camera (including HDMI, Mini XLR, 2x 3,5 jacks for mic and headphones, USB-C for either charging or using an external SSD instead of SD or CF cards).
Reliable timecode for audio/video synchronization.

Cons:
Battery life is poor - lasts around 40 minutes, but you have many options how to solve this problem (V-mount battery, power banks, battery grip, etc...)
The battery is chargable only in the camera.

Overall:
I just can't believe (not only) the image quality you can get for such a low price.

It's kinda amazing
Giedrius A, 01.03.2021
Not a professional, however, very happy with the camera. Though if you buy it - expect to invest a lot of money until you get it functional to a desired level.

Hält was sie verspricht!
FritzK, 23.11.2020
Die LowLight Eigenschaften sind echt super. Der Touchscreen und die Bedienung sind sehr durchdacht.
Die Einstellmöglichkeiten sind sehr umfangreich und für Umsteiger von diversen Foto-/Film- Kameras Anfangs recht üppig. Die einfachen Klick- und Fertig-Automatiken sind zugunsten des professionellen Anwender weggelassen.
Wir verwenden die Kamera hauptsächlich Indoor und bei LowLight-Aufnahmen und auf Bühnen. Da macht sich der große Belichtungsspielraum und BMD-Raw angenehm bemerkbar.
Kritikpunkte - wie in diversen Reviews zu sehen - ist die geringe Akkulaufzeit und der in hellem Sonnenlicht schlecht lesbare Touchscreen. Aber dafür gibt es viele Abhilfen. Allerdings haben die ihren Preis.

BMPCC4K - pas grand chose à lui reprocher
Pixelumi, 15.03.2021
Notre association audiovisuelle, Pixelumi, est amenée à filmer des sujets variés dans des environnements et circonstances variés. Dapuis que nous l'avons, nous avons déjà utilisé la BMPCC4K pour filmer une classe de chant lyrique, des interviews et pour notre projet de documentaire sur les abeilles sauvages. Notre achat était très réfléchi, nous étions notamment au courant des problèmes d'autonomie de cette caméra mais aussi de la qualité des images qu'elle est capable de produire. Or, au dérushage du tournage en classe de chant lyrique où nous avions une prise de son séparée, nous avons été très surpris par la qualité de la captation par les micros internes de la caméra (sachant qu'elle propose aussi une prise micro XLR).
Pour résumer, nous sommes très satisfaits par cette caméra ! Attention, toutefois, il est nécessaire de faire des investissements supplémentaires pour en profiter pleinement, à commencer par les objectifs (en l'occurrence un adaptateur pour objectifs EF en plus des objectifs en tant que tels) et une solution pour prolonger l'autonomie de la caméra.
