Like many of you who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of that little black box with an image on the front that looks like a P&S camera, only that you know it can accomplish so much more in the form of video, my wait was over a little over a week ago. Unfortunately, at the time, I was extremely busy but I still found time to mount my few sets of primes and give the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera a run through over the course of a few days.
Between running around chasing the kids around the house, finding some areas within walking distance of where I live and taking the camera on set of a short film I’m about to wrap filming for (Shameless plug: http://fruitcakemovie.com #FruitcakeMovie @FruitcakeMovie Facebook.com/FruitcakeMovie) I was able to scrape up some footage and get a feel for the camera.
I’m sure there are a butt load of video footage going around the interwebs showing off the capabilities of the BMPCC and the image quality the camera can produce but guess what… this video is no different! Some of the clips are color corrected but only slightly. Some of the clips I’ve shown the original and treated versions of the video.
