    Looks like a great tool. Maybe one day, but as far as I got into video, it looks like it'll have to come at the same time as a multi-core, mega ram, ssd computer to work the files properly (or I'm wrong?)

    IMO you are a bit wrong :)
    Ive edit both 4K avchd from the GH4, 2.5K raw and 1080p raw with my Mac Mini with only 8gb of the cheapest ram I found and Im totally happy with it.
    I have no plans on updating my computer.

    How does the GH4 compare to the BMPCC, if you were only considering video?

    So far I've seen no sunny blue sky day landscape footage from the GH4 in order to evaluate the colors the camera puts out. Panasonic and Sony cameras have historically had problems with "off looking" color compared to cameras from Olympus, Canon and Nikon.

    They have gotten much better from the GH3 on. Panasonic's colors tend to be quite pleasing and natural--a good starting point for color grading. They tend to shift cyan less toward aqua (which manufacturers do to prodice prettier albeit cartoonier skies) and apply less "punch" by default than other manufacturers, but they've ironed out their color science by and large. Canon has their own issues with neon green foliage and amped-up warm tones. Olympus color is punchy, but tends to feel a little overcooked for some people's tastes (though admittedly, I find most samples from the EM-1 are much improved in that regard). I don't like Nikon's color science in general. Too much yellow, especially in skin tones, and just lifeless in general IMHO.

    But if you want to talk bad color science, don't even get me started on Samsung...

    I would say that the bmpcc of cource have a wider dynamic range, higher bitrate and is much more gradable.
    But the GH4 has a larger sensor and higher frame rates so they are a bit diferent and imo not really competing eachother.

    There have been some blue sky sunny clips for a while now, even before the once posted in this thread,

    Thanks, I'm just gathering info at the moment. I'm not sure whether I'm even likely to do enough video to consider a camera with better video capability than the E-M1. Part of my interest in the BMPCC is it's form factor, which allows a little more flexibility in shooting situations than a DSLR style body. Now if Panasonic produced say a GX7 style, or smaller, camera with the capability of the GH4, that would be a different story.

    Hoepfully it will happen in the same way that the GX7 is in the same leage as the GH3. GX8 I guess.
    But if size is everything there is always the gm1 or a rx100ii.

    I can't find any link to a Youtube or Vimeo "shootout" where we can examine the footage of the 4 cameras shooting the same scene.

    I'm still just figuring out video, but the GX7, while it produces very good MP4 or AVCHD files with multiple options, it does not have ability to shoot in MOV like the GH3, so while it will produce video that looks very good, the files have less latitude in post (at least thats what I read)

    The best setting in the gh3 imo and many others is the 50mbit mp4, not the 72mbit alintra. 72mbit is not enough for that type of codec.
    I belive the gx7 has 24mbit and thats not to bad.

    It does have 24mbit. Is that better than the AVCHD modes (24 or 28mbit depending on frame rate)?

    No between them to I probably go avchd (if they are the same mbit), but the difference isn't exactly huge. if you did a side by side I wouldn't be ablate to tell them apart 95% of the times.
