I'm a Director of Photography, Writer, Director and Editor. I created this blog to share my work, post gear reviews, and talk about anything film related.
Late Night with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera Part 2
It’s a Friday night, well very early Saturday morning if you’re being politically correct. After my unfortunate situation with a bunk SSD, B&H sent me a brand new SanDisk 240gb SSD. And you know what? It works like a charm. One of my major pains in the ass and finally life with the lovely BMCC is starting to look good. 
What we have here is a converted .DNG file from one of the shots I took from around the house. Again, nothing to exciting here, just really getting use to the camera. As I type, DaVinci Resolve is exporting some of the footage I shot this evening so I can begin editing it together. As for the picture above, this is Mr. Bingley, one of three house hold cats. I filmed him all in Raw 2.5K using the “Film” dynamic range setting. What I like about this is the sharpness and the detail the image has. I took another shot of him as an ECU and the detail in his fur is really impressive. 
I took advantage of the camera’s slate option while filming. This is something I really like. Having this integrated on the camera is really helpful, especially from an editing standpoint. Obviously it’s not ideal for run and gun situations, but if you’re on set, this is something to really consider. 
I should be wrapping this post up soon. Doing a few more tests, then my final thoughts. That’s it for now.
