WTB: Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

For personal no-budget projects where I'm sadly not always able to use the ol' Aaton I'm looking for an affordable solution to shoot a digital S16 look and I've come to the conclusion that the BMMCC would be a good choice. 

Anyone selling? Preferably a package, preferably in Europe.
This would be an ideal package, though I could source some things elsewhere of course. 

- Camera
- Cage
- A baseplate (doesn't need to be pro like Arri dovetail or VCT but should allow 15mm rods at the correct height)
- A few batteries
- A battery to d-tap solution
- Something to make controls a bit more user friendly like the One Little Remote or a different remote solution
- An OLPF like Rawlite
- MFT to PL mount adapter

 Hit me up if you've got something :).

I do the same - i added a wooden camera PL mount to mine so I can use my 16mm lenses.

Just as a heads up, most newer SD cards don't work with that camera anymore at all speeds (there's a whole thread on BMC forum). I bought ones from Angelbird that work flawlessly.

Thanks for the tip David, I'm actually planning to use PL glass as well so I've added the adapter to the list :).

Cinegearpro in the UK makes a pretty good remote, I recently got one for mine. You could also look at the pocket 4K in S16 crop. Used prices for both are getting similar and better features on the 4K. I recently got my used BMMCC with a cage and Wooden Camera PL adapter for $400 Canadian, but I feel like I just lucked out.

Thanks for the tip Eric. And that sounds like a steal you got there!
Pocket 4K could do the trick as well, but I'd prefer shooting CDNG over braw. 
Have you compared the two? P4K crop mode vs BMMCC?

Does ProResHQ 1080 30p still work? I don't mind if raw is a deal breaker, as it seems that in the past was the biggest issue with SD cards, getting raw to work

I do agree the interface and everything is better on the newer Pocket 4K than on the OG Pocket

here is the thread: https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=83050

many of the new cards are not recognized and can't be formatted by the camera. Some found cards that work at certain speeds. This was not worth the hassle for me, so I went with Angelbird, where when you tell them you want cards for this camera, they send you ones that work at all speeds, raw and Prores.
