I went out into the marshy mists of Suffolk, England, to test the Blackmagic Cinema camera. And met death. Beware. May upset sensitive viewers (which I mention merely because it's always surprising when it happens).

Shot on Blackmagic Cinema camera with Canon 28mm f2.8 in flat ProRes. Sound recorded via Rode VideoMic Pro. I promised myself I wouldn't shoot anything on the BMCC without an external mic due to fan noise. More on mic setup here: bradbell.tumblr.com/post/43076845180/blackmagic-cine-rode-videomic-pro

Edited and colour corrected in FCPX. I'll add some stills showing before and after correction shortly. In some of the shots, the original image looks completely white, yet miraculously, details emerge from the fog - even in ProRes. Big lesson - with a 10-bit codec, it is astounding how much you can push and pull the image - even in ProRes. (A very reasonably priced 120GB SSD gets you about 90 minutes of ProRes.)

Look at those telephone wires! Just look at them. I am so pleased to see them rendered properly I don't even mind them 'ruining' shots. It makes very me happy :-)

There is now a Blackmagic in the Sun, taken the next day in the same general area, which runs from late afternoon to sunset and night: vimeo.com/60946743

The flat ProRes files are no longer available for download.

Music by Theta-Sound, which I thrashed pretty badly to stretch it out over the piece. Please listen to the original - it's a very polished, crisp, professional piece of horror music: jamendo.com/en/track/893403/revenge
