Lenses for Blackmagic Pocket 4K Camera

Great camera goes only as far as the lenses you pair it with. The amazing Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema 4K camera is no exception.

I have previously tested and showed how different lens adapters work on this camera, specially when you plan on using full frame cinema lenses and APS-C lenses. Now I want to show you what you can expect with various native lenses that have the micro four thirds lens mount. Some lenses I think are a must but others I would say skip if you don’t want to spend money on something that will just take up space in your camera bag but will almost never get used.

Top 15 Live Streaming Upgrades for Worship

Is your live stream all that you want it to be? If it’s not, it is very likely that budget is part of the reason why. Here, are some simple (cost effective) improvement measures.


It’s probably easy to think of reasons why your stream is not everything you would like it to be. Most of them are likely financial. When that is the case, it can be easier to ignore the things that you can do because of what you can’t.But it is always a good idea to ask what could improve, given the same circumstances.

So, consider this article just that—a list of things to consider. Maybe, they won’t all be applicable, but something on this list will definitely make your live stream better. Who knows, maybe a little improvement will free up some finances for some. So, with that in mind, put all the reasons why these ideas won’t work aside. Try them, because nearly every house of worship has room to grow, even if there isn’t capital to buy new equipment.

       1. Make better use of what you have

Let’s start by taking a close look at your stream and possible changes that don’t involve money. Are you using your equipment as a pro would? Where have you said, “That doesn’t apply to us?” Reconsider it if you have.

       2. Ensure better shot selection

Remember who your audience is and where they’re viewing your stream. They’re not sitting in the seats in your sanctuary. They don’t have the advantage of seeing the “wide shot” in person. All they have is the stream. Click here to read the full article.
