1. So it's time to look at some footage from the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.

    ADDED ** For ungraded look at vimeo.com/64944847

    This footage was shot over about an hour at my local market on Sunday morning. So yeah, it's just home movies. I was literally grabbing shots where I could whilst I was shopping ! But, you do get to see what one man can do with a pocket cinema camera and a 12-35 Panasonic m4/3 zoom. I guess for those that like to shoot discretely, guerrilla or documentary style, this will give you a good sense of what you're going to get. The same great DR and look has been inherited from the BMCC.

    All this footage was shot using the FILM look. I set my exposure by ETTR and using the 100% zebra to indicate clipping. I had IS on all the time. I had a Hoya ND16 on as well to keep me at a slightly nicer stop. I set the rear monitor to VIDEO and then used focus peaking all the time.

    There are plans afoot to create something that's more *finished* in the way of demo footage in a more formal and drama / narrative style, but for now this should whet your appetite.

    Its rough and ready, and really it was just something I threw together very quickly. Interestingly, I had one guy actually recognise that it was a BMCC pocket and several others stopped me to ask what the camera was !

    I cut the footage using FCPx and used my colleague Captain Hook for the grade. He's made some fantastic LUT's for Resolve as donation-ware to make grading BMCC footage even easier. I encourage those of you who work with BMCC footage to check out these great LUT's. There's some great before and after examples there as well.

    Enjoy !
