Been gone for a long time, paying the bills doing photojournalism. Been itching to get back to cinematography for a while, but haven't made the leap.
Just discovered the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera today and was pretty blown away, as I was always a huge fan of the Super 16mm format and still have quite a bit of 16mm glass.
My question has to do with the camera, the codecs, and Final Cut Pro. I really loved using FCP from version 1.2.5 all the way up to 7.0.3. Didn't get along well with the new FCP as my old system was set up like a typical film editing suite, and the new FCP just screamed Video, Video, Video. Can I use the Pocket Cinema Camera, my 16mm glass, and edit everything in FCP 7, like in the old film days? It seems like folks are using FCP 7 with this camera. Or do you need to be using the latest FCP (whatever it's called).
Thanks for any and all input.
