    I probably would, yes. I was not entirely satisfied with the GH4's 100 Mb/s quality. Given the added color information of the GH5's 4:2:2 signal, it's very possible I won't be satisfied with it's 150 Mb/s mode either.

    Fair enough. But it's an inconvenience I do not have to deal with on the BMPCC. I was hoping for that same lack of inconvenience on the new GH5.

    The file is properly closed before the camera shuts down. That's how any camera should work. It's how the BMPCC does work. It's what I would expect from the GH5 as well.

    That is very possible. There are may factors that go into my decision to stick with the BMPCC or move back to the GH5. Right now I'm just collecting data with which to make that decision.

    Seeing reviews and footage from the 400 Mb/s mode after it's released will also be a factor in that decision.

    Can we hope that until that happens, we will not need to hear any more about your BMPCC?

    Why does it even matter? When you drop it in premiere or whatever, the split is seamless. Then do your post tweaking and any audio edits and render out. Or do no edits and leave it rendering in background. Or use an external recorder.

    There's a laundry list of compromises for every camera, I can't imagine this is that big of a deal. I'd like the BMPC to last long enough to actually record that take on a single battery. So whatcha gonna so? Just pick the best tool for you and figure out the solutions to the inevitable compromises.

    They are both great (and very different) cameras...

    Are you looking for solutions?

    It matters for instance if you use Plural Eyes.
    Plural Eyes treats the split clips as separate clips and because of that may correct audio drift which may give unwanted gaps.
    To prevent it you have to manually merge the clips first and then run Plural Eyes.

    Can't you just nest the clips as a sequence first, and then sync audio and the sequence?

    You shouldn't necessarily expect better visual quality from the 400mbps all-i format. All that is given is less work for your CPU's during editing.

    I think it will depend on how the 400 Mbps ALL-I mode is built, so it's possible the end result may be different from that of the 150 Mbps IPB format.
