Note the exposure match between the foreground subjects, the sky and the people in the background. The Dynamic Range from the $1000 BPCC is clearly wider and more "film like" than any 8 bit consumer camcorder or DSL camera (even my $1300 GH3). Case in point - see the blown-out backgrounds/skies in this otherwise wonderful little GH3 test film:
And the skies in this Canon HF G10 test:
The BPCC delivers a very similar look to the 16mm film cameras I shot with in the 70s - at a much lower price in 1970s dollars - with the addition of internal sound recording, lens stabilization, focus peaking and a headphone jack - and without the hassle and expense of film processing and splicing.
This test footage was what I was waiting for. I just pre-ordered my BPCC from Adorama!
Really looking forward to what this little camera can do when it gets the CinemaDNG RAW upgrade.
