    from OneRiver Media Added 549K 4,503 645

    Hosted by Marco Solorio of OneRiver Media, this video compares the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera and the Canon 5D Mark III in several tests. This includes dynamic range, sharpness, pushing levels, banding, artifacts, rolling shutter, chromakeying, wide/telephoto lengths, DOF (depth of field), low light, macro blocking, contrast, and more. NEW! Check out our new eBook "Ultimate Comparison Guide to the URSA & CION" at onerivermedia.com/ebooks Check out our follow-up video to this one: "Comparing the Cinema Camera: Part 2, The Impact of 12-bit RAW" https://vimeo.com/52269416 After several DAYS of trying to upload this video to Vimeo, we've ultimately had to reduce the bit-rate compression down to 18mbps (Vimeo recommends 5mbps, ha!), which is down from our minimum quality level of 40mbps. This means the SOURCE file you can download will also inhibit some amount of compression blocking and smearing, even in the Cinema Camera footage, which doesn't originally exist in our ProRes master file. We've tried EVERYTHING, multiple types of uploads, different encoding methods, you name it. Although the downloadable source file is a little better than the streaming version, it still doesn't compare to the original ProRes source file which imposes no banding, compression artifacts, or chrominance sub-sampling (down from 4:4:4 to H.264's 4:2:0 space). Please keep this in mind when viewing. Unfortunately Vimeo only allows 100 downloads per day, so check back to download the 2GB file if the queue is filled. And remember to always watch in FULL 1080 HD or you will have added scaling and moiré issues on some of the tests than what is already been added by Vimeo and our horrid bit-rate restrictions. Thanks for watching. Hope this is as informative for you as it was for me making it.

    • The Bear in NZ Winter - Beta URSA Footage


      from A Couple Of Night Owls Added 112K 992 166

      This is a collection of footage i've shot with a beta unit of the Blackmagic URSA (EF mount) over the last few weeks. Disclaimer: I now work for Blackmagic Design but this video was produced the same way as my previous beta videos, and is definitely not some kind of 'official' demo video. Its just a collection of personal footage i've shot while getting to know the camera recently. - Hook I originally tried to upload an UHD Prores LT, but it failed at 88%. :( I will continue to try and replace the current file but even if not, i still recommend downloading the 1080 Prores LT version - the motion looks a little 'funny' on vimeo. This was all shot using ONLY the built in 10" screen for composing/focus and most of the time it was just Danelle and I grabbing footage, i really wanted to see if this bigger camera could still be used like the much smaller BMD ones without a crew etc. The only exception to this being some music video footage, but that was also a tiny crew of 3 of us involving me as director/dop/gaffer with Johnathan Guest from Halcyon Digital being camera/lighting assist, as well as DIT and dolly grip !! The rest is friends doing us favours and getting footage while on holiday to celebrate our 10 year anniversary in Queenstown. Carrying around the URSA, lenses, and tripod on ski slopes was tiring and hard work and not much of a holiday! I also almost dropped the camera off the side of a friends mini speed boat while trying to hold it up to get footage going down the river. :-P HUGE thanks to: Blackmagic Design Jeremy and Julian McPike Jim Pollard Todd Columb and his freerunning friends Jayden and Ange Keoghan Sound The Ocean Johnathan Guest Chelsea and Michelle Barns Tracey Bourgeois and of course my much better half for the last 10 years - Danelle !! Edited and Graded in DaVinci Resolve 11 Mostly shot at 60fps Prores 422HQ in camera and conformed to 24fps.

      • Comparing the Cinema Camera: Part 2, The Impact of 12-bit RAW


        from OneRiver Media Added 74.7K 828 162

        Going a step closer with the Cinema Camera, Marco Solorio of OneRiver Media focuses on how 12-bit RAW compares in relation to 8-bit alternatives, including many camera solutions costing much more. The difference between “perceived dynamic range” and “available dynamic range” is explored in detail. Also covered is day-for-night, detail versus sharpness, and much more. NEW! Check out our new eBook "Ultimate Comparison Guide to the URSA & CION" at onerivermedia.com/ebooks Some questions have arisen as to why a LOG curve wasn't used (or if it would help) for the 8-bit source (amongst others), I created a blog post on the topic to answer any questions that might be regarding: http://www.onerivermedia.com/blog/?p=750 For best results, view this video in FULL 1080 HD, and even better yet, download the original 15Mbps H.264 file with less compression artifacts.

        • Just Lookin' | Blackmagic "FOURKS" 4K Production Camera


          from Camp Comet Added

          Some of this stuff's more recent than the last video, some of it's pulled from the same day. It's a mix of super early production camera footage and some from the production run build. 4K ready file here, but it's H.264 so keep that in mind. Camera: Blackmagic 4K Production Camera @400 and 800 ISO Format: UHD 4K ProRes 422 HQ@24 Glass (In order of appearance): Canon 70-200/2.8 IS II, Zeiss Otus 55/1.4, Tokina 11-16/2.8 Filters: Hoya ProND, Hoya IR CUT Color: Davinci Resolve 10 -- zero noise reduction These are early days with the camera, there's more to be explored so I wouldn't base my final decision off of what you see here, unless you really like it. In that case, base.

          • BMPC vs. 5D3 with 5DtoBMD picture style


            from DSLR Perfection Added 4,930 50 40

            With the new 5DtoBMD picture style 5DmkIII matches with the BMPC in terms of color, luma and dynamic range. For more information on the dynamic range of this two cameras please visit: http://www.dslrperfection.com/5D3_vs_BMPC_true_dynamic_range 5DtoBMD is available at www.dslrperfection.com A general note: Please remember that this is neither a sharpness test, nor are we suggesting that either one of these cameras is "the better camera" by all means. Everybody who owns either one of them knows their downfalls. But, 1) RAW to RAW comparisons have shown that BMPC 4K has no wider dynamic range than 5Dmk3. 2) Many videographers are still professionally dependent on their DSLRs and they won't throw them away just because a BMD camera is available. 3) With 5DtoBMD we are giving you a better DR recovery in H264 (or over HDMI output) than you have experienced from many other picture styles. It is closer to the DR in RAW, but for more convenient use. Just the same purpose as the internal ProRes recording of BMD. 4) You can conveniently match your 5D to a Blackmagic, for example for multicamera shootings, or simply when you want to use LUTs or color grading presets which were made for "BMD film".

              from Thomas Arnold Added 13.3K 72 29

              A short exercise shot with the BMCC. I just wanted to do a small project with camera. I though it would be fun to challenge myself limiting the shooting to one floor and trying to find interesting shots.

              • FOURKS at Venice | Blackmagic 4K Production Camera


                from Camp Comet Added

                DISCLAIMER: This is early test footage, still getting to know the camera back then. I've since become more accustomed to shooting with it and have found more in the camera than before. Will post new footage soon. This is pretty much to take a glance at the camera JUST shooting. I had gone out with it much earlier, this time with a more finished version. If you were curious about global shutter, FOV, aesthetic, I think it shows. Ignore the color for the most part, to me it feels a bit over saturated but it was a one pass. TECHNICAL: B4K "Fourks" ISO 400 and 800 ProRes 4K Canon 70-200/2.8 for most of it Zeiss Otus 55/1.4 @ 1.4 near the end Tokina 11-16/2.8 Hoya ProND Hoya IR Cut

                  Some motion clips from URSA shooting our sketches ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC55ADnOfqe2awGj6Voi_VTw ). Most of what's up there has been shot with URSA in the past few months. One-man-camera crew with some extra hands from actors moving house lamps around. "LIGHTING" 60W 2700K LED IKEA Bulbs 1 x 150W HMI Bounce CAMERA URSA @ 400ISO 1080HQ and 4KHQ ProRes POST Quick color adjustments (nothing final at all) No noise reduction or grain for interior stuff. Grain added on the exterior night stuff for texture (it was too clean!) but no noise reduction done. Thoroughly enjoy this camera for my personal work and paid work, that's including slinging it around with no tripod in sight, handheld. The weight is amazing and the image is more than satisfying to me. Of course, others mileage may vary!

PA's: Ricardo Gutierrez & Graham Flatts Song used from the Vimeo Music Store: "Cerulean" by The Electric Amygdala (https://electricamygdala.bandcamp.com/) Visualized from this account of a dream from one of my crew members. With some creative liberties taken, of course. "I had this dream once. Such a peaceful and serene dream. I was just laying in a field, no, it was by a lake. Yeah, by a lake. And I was like skipping rocks or something. And I think I had my guitar. And I was with someone, not sure who. Maybe Rick. And we were by the lake, but then there was a forest we were going into. Or, I met him in the woods or something. Because then it was just me and there was something changing me. I don't remember what it was, or why it was after me. But right before it could get me, I woke up scared as shit. I think. " -Graham Created for the Weekend Challenge: vimeo.com/groups/weekendchallenge
