Blackmagic RAW file sizes


So, my Blackmagic 6k Pocket Cinema Camera arrived a couple of weeks back, and I have been doing some testing with it, and I wanted to share something interesting… The Video sizes are large! Very LARGE. Shooting 6k Blackmagic 12:1 RAW, a 1-minute 4-second video at 30FPS is 5.2GB in size. 2 minute 22-second clip is 11.65GB. The first video i shot with it and posted to Youtube about my Quad 2.5Gb/s router took 27 gigs of RAW video for around 5 min of Youtube video (the final exported 4k Video was under 400MB!) With all this said, my MacBook Pro 16" with M1 Max and 64GB RAM had no issues processing or working with it, so at least there is that…
