UPDATE - My new LUTs for the BM4K and BMCC/Pocket are released!
WARNING - No tripod was used in the shooting of these clips. :-D If you're one who doesn't like shoulder rig shots, i would stop right there. A lot of this footage was shot at 200mm with no IS (i used none for the entire clip) so be prepared for MOVEMENT. But i will say i was able to pull this off mostly because of the Redrock rig i'm using with their Ultracage etc, check out the rig i used for shooting this here:
The Auckland Lantern Festival was just on the weekend been so we went down so i could grab a few clips. My beta footage video was shot with a previous hardware model (like Grants first footage) that was a bit noisier in the shadows, so i tended to expose "on" at ASA400 to play it safe with that video, but since before shooting that i actually preferred the look of the camera about 1 stop under exposed at ASA400. Now that the shipping models are better with noise, this was a good chance to go out as the sun was setting and get some shots a stop underexposed at 400 (which all these shots are) with pretty low light levels (something i've been meaning to do for a while). I still won't shoot ASA800 even in low light on this cam, as 400 seems better once you bring it back in post. I actually did this for the music video footage on the first beta cam video, even though noise was a bit worse on that cam. 2 stops under seems to bring up noise that i would start using NR on, but no NR was used here as i stuck to one stop under and for shots that were under more than that, i left them "darkish" because they're supposed to be. The last couple of shots were 2-3 stops under which i did raise a bit and there's definitely a bit of noise there, but i chose not to add NR to show how it looks. :-)
Now for $3000USD, this camera is incredible! Way to go BMD!
Edited in Premiere and graded in Resolve using a new LUT i've made i plan to release this week. Some shots i did nothing but add my LUT since as i was shooting, i had my LUT loaded on my SmallHD DP7 OLED and "shot for the look". I also didn't go for a "big fat grade" like my first beta video, but rather went for something more like my other BMCC/Pocket Camera footage/grades.
This is the first time i've tried uploading a Prores LT file to vimeo, so i'm interested to see how it goes compared to my usual H264 uploads. I've enabled download if interested.
Lenses: Sigma 18-35/1.8, Canon 100/2.8L IS Macro, Canon 70-200/2.8L IS II (no IS used for any of these shots).
Hoya PROND's and a Tiffen Glimmerglass #1.
Shot at 30fps conformed to 24fps. ASA400 Prores UHD.
