Just Great!

by Giantommaso Puglisi
I've bought this course just before buying the BMPCC4K to help me get through the understanding of the new camera and it was priceless! It helped me a lot and it explains you everything there is to know about it and you can always go back and watch it again if you have any doubt! Thanks a lot!

An EXCELLENT walkthrough!

by Jackson Hayes
I really enjoyed this walkthrough. While I knew about 80% of the material covered, there were little tricks here and there that I never would have found on my own. Thanks Caleb!

Excellent Introduction to the BMPCC 4K

by Samuel Kpakiwa
Caleb this is a phenomenal introduction to this camera. You covered pretty much everything that I was curious about and more. I also love the access to the Discord group and your plans to follow up with a Blackmagic RAW update to this content. I am really looking forward to that. Though I am a long time subscriber to your site this is the first guide/course that I have purchased from you. I am more than satisfied with my purchase and look forward to future guides. This is excellent work and worth every penny. Thank you for this guide and keep up the wonderful work on your YouTube channel.

What an awesome learning opportunity!

by Shireen Lakhani
This is my first "real" camera for shooting video, so a lot of the lingo was new to me, but still I didn't feel overwhelmed because Caleb has a fantastic way of explaining the features and concepts. This is a fantastic guide for this camera - especially the lesson on getting the correct exposure (that one I'll have to watch repeatedly - so much good information is packed in it)! Makes me very excited to get started with the Pocket 4K! Thank you for this guide!

Great Blackmagic Pocket 4k overview!

by Jeremy Moser
I will be purchasing a Blackmagic Pocket 4k camera soon and this guide was perfect for me! It was very well presented and explained! Great job!

First BMPC4K accessory you need to buy.

by Jeff Carter
Once you've made the investment in a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K this is the first "accessory" you need to buy. Not only does Caleb walk you through the process of setting up this camera, he also guides you through what you need to buy to make this camera function to it's full potential. Much like his YouTube videos, this course is packed with useful information that is delivered in a straight-forward, easy to follow way. In each section Caleb gets immediately to the subject at hand. He doesn't waste a minute of your time in the whole five hour course. This is the best $80 you'll ever spend.

Great complete guide and overview

Well Spoken

by Paul Goodwin
Good narration. Video editing is excellent also. Not only am I learning very quickly about this camera, but I am becoming very excited about it. I don't even own the Pocket 4K yet. It is not available at the moment (4/12/2019).

An awesome course EVERY BMPCC4K camera owner should purchase a copy of

by Martin Turner
This course is incredibly detailed and useful. I went from "Gee, what do I do now?" to now being comfortable enough to start using my new BMPCC4K camera! Great job, Caleb!!!

Learning the camera before I have the camera

by Stephen Butterworth
Unfortunately I am in a small country, i.e. a small market........ I have a pre-order and am number 6 in line, but reseller says end June 2019! Anyway whilst looking at LUT's etc etc, I came across this video course and I am thrilled that I did. Caleb, has a friendly laid-back style that I like. He's articulate and sound and vision is brilliant, also on the downloaded videos. By the time I have absorbed all of the important stuff, I should feel at home with the camera actually in my hands thanks to this video course. I also look forward to the updates as V6.2 has brought many serious updates from BRAW onwards.

Binge-worthy Camera Guide!

by Chris Ratchford
Excellent, in-depth guide and a great time-saver for learning the Pocket 4K! Even if you are still waiting for your camera to arrive, this guide will enable you to hit the ground running when you actually do receive your camera. I’m sure I will refer to this guide many times as I learn more about this awesome camera!

good job!
