Whilst doing a pre shoot for a feature film "The Turning" i took the chance to shoot some scenes with the m4/3 Blackmagic Cinema Camera and the super awesome SLR Magic 12mm T1.6 as well as the voigtlander 17.5mm T0.96.
The day shots are all with the SLR magic 12mm and the shots after sunset of the reeds are the 17.5mm Voightlander. This was shot RAW and with a single node of correction. All handheld with no rig.
Notes on workflow:
Both the Sony NEX-FS100 and the Canon 5DMK2 footage was transcoded to ProRes HQ with 5DtoRGB. I then colour corrected the footage in Final Cut Pro X.
The Blackmagic footage was exported from Resolve in 3 ways as I wanted to test different work flows.
• 1st option I applied a Rec709 LUT to the RAW files and exported ProRes HQ 1080p.
• 2nd option I applied the BMC Film LUT to the RAW files and exported ProRes HQ 1080p.
Both methods involved not colour correction in Resolve. All that was do was a LUT was applied to the RAW files. I then colour corrected the footage in Final Cut Pro X.
• In the 3rd option I graded the footage in Resolve with a single node and exported ProRes HQ 1080p
All footage was then edited in ProRes HQ in Final Cut Pro X.

A quick test shoot with the Black Magic Cinema Camera to see it's low light shooting capabilities. Shot by Joel Crane and Tanya Voltchanskaya, featuring Chloe Flockart.
Unfortunately, the compression turned out really bad when I uploaded it, so for those keen to see, I've put up a few ungraded stills from the shoot. Download them here: joelcranephotography.com/teststills.zip
