    This is a subtle regrade but also looks different as I have spent a lot of time fine tuning the shots within Premiere CC and Warp Stabilze (but used in the tiniest amount mostly using position which keeps some of the wobble and shakiness and loses that shifting warping perspective) I did lots of experimentation to make it still look like handheld and this is the 2nd version I have uploaded as the 1st one looked too "warpy!" It's also uploaded in ProRes Proxy, which actually was around same size file as my high bitrate H264. The H264 couldn't handle the fine detail but the prores proxy did and Vimeo's conversion holds that. I prefer it and am much happier now. I didn't need to do much for the night stuff as I had the Zacuto Marauder rig for that so was much steadier! USE A RIG! Always better to stabilise when shooting. FIx in post is never fun. On the eye I had no choice unfortunately. Music courtesy of The Music Bed.

With the lovely actress Kate Loustau @kate_loustau Graded with Film Convert using Provia Stock. 10% off at gopb.co/filmconvert All shots on the London Eye filmed in "stealth mode" No rig and one lens. The SLR Magic 12mm F1.6 with a Schneider Optics Variable ND Shots at Waterlook Bridge shot with the Samyang/ Rokinon 35mm F1.4 and Metabones Speed Booster for MFT Nikon Mount. I used the Zacuto Marauder RIg to get fluid handheld motion. Much better! St Paul's Cathedral shot filmed with the Leica 90mm F2 on a tripod! A huge thanks to actress Kate Loustau who I asked if she wouldn't mind letting me film her for a few shots to test out the Pocket Camera for my review in exchange for dinner. If she had known she probably would have preferred to have gone hungry! The London Eye is ridiculously strict about what you use camera wise in the capsules. Multiple lenses, tripods, video camera are a big fat no. Had many a...disagreement in the past :) This was filmed for Part 2 of my Blackmagic Pocket Camera Review which is almost finished in edit. Part 1 is done but I can't export it due to major computer issues. I shall keep trying! Thanks again to Kate. You made this piece lovely.

      Although this review has been partly subsidised by CVP about 10x more time and effort has gone into making these that what that covered. In fact it only covered a fraction of Part 1. So, if you find any of these reviews helpful or useful and want to help keep them going in the future I have activated tipjar on them. Thanks if you do use it! Part 2 of my 3 part review of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. This is the one where it's all filmed on location finding out what is it actually like to shoot with?

        I finally came around color correcting this footage. This camera gives a lot to play with. I have included the screenshots at the bottom of this page of "with and without color correction" so that you can compare. Thanks!

            This is my grade of Philip Blooms Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera test footage. The image quality achieved by this $1100 camera body is extremely impressive, and the PRORES 422 codec gives a wide amount of data to manipulate and correct the image. Graded in Premiere Pro CC Credits to Philip Bloom and the actress Kate Loustau. Music Holly Maher "Hiding Place" courtesy of The Music Bed.
