Blackmagic Design - Photo Savings BMD-CINECAMPOCHDMFT4K Final Thoughts

"Ease, convenience, speed!"

Some reviewers have problems with clarity, but I certainly do not. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. The only problem I had was with the LCD screen. I'm still playing around with it. After over 10,000 pictures, my Blackmagic Design - Photo Savings BMD-CINECAMPOCHDMFT4K operates perfectly in every aspect.
