The One - First Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Shortfilm

Here is a little short I shot onthe Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. The Audio was also recorded in camera, with a JuicedLink BMC366 preamp. I did the color grading in Resolve, with one of my experimental LUTs. For more information and BTS, have a look at my blog article: frankglencairn.wordpress.com/2013/09/18/the-1-shooting-a-short-with-the-bmc-pocket-and-much-coffee/

Holi from Variable on Vimeo.

The world is fascinating. People and cultures inspire us. Sadly, the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us. Our goal with this film is to help viewers further appreciate and take notice of the beauty in life & culture that lies within our world…

…so the next time you notice something that strikes you as interesting, stop for a second, start powering on your camera, think about why it’s unique, and snap the shot before you miss it. Life is extraordinary. Embrace it.

Twixtor Vs Optical Flow FCPX from Mitch Payne on Vimeo.

Just updated to Twixtor for FCPX and wanted to see how she compared to optical flow. In my opinion if your footage isn’t going to work with optical flow, twixtor will only make it marginally better. For what it’s worth I would save my money or spend it on other plug-ins. Motion estimation software can have some amazing results, it just doesn’t work well with a lot of the content I deal with.

On the plus side, it renders a hell of a lot faster in X then it does in 7.

RED EPIC DRAGON - IT’S THE REAL DEAL ! from Mark Toia on Vimeo.

The Red Dragon sensor has 3 F STOPS more than before. 1 in the hight lights which rolls over wonderfully !, 2 solid extra stops in the darks…. maybe 3 once the colour science has been perfected.
But there is still noise, but nothing like before. I ran some 250d 2k film rushes next some of my 4000asa stuff, And silly as it sounds, it looks like film grain, not noise. Don’t ask me how, as I wouldn’t have a clue. But it looks great !

Red Dragon now has the best highlight fall off I have ever seen from any digital camera. Beating film! Big call I know, but after shooting film and pushing it around in telecine chains for more than a decade, I can categorically say that this new sensor has a better range than film ever had.

Single still frames compared to a top of the line professional 35mm Digital stills cameras, I’m going to say that the EPIC matches, if not betters most. Don’t ask me how they do it, but every single frame from the DRAGON is 109meg !! @16bit when saved as a tiff from RCX. and at 100 Frames per second, I tell you this… someone has sold there soul to the devil.
If you are a pro photographer, you are mad if you don’t have this camera in your tool box. You quite literally will never miss a single shot.

Is Dragon better than 65mm Film…. (with good lenses) YES. No shit…
The images out of the Dragon are so smooth now… so so smooth, like low asa large format film.

The Dragon is more stable than my current MX EPIC’s.

The SONY F65 I rate as having the best sensor in the market for a production cine camera. Yes.. it’s better than the EPIC- MX. (I’m not going to harp on about the size of it or the price comparisons).
Even Jim knows that Sony have done very well with the F65 sensor and that was obviously pissing him off, because his new Dragon sensor has just given the the F65 notice.
All the F65 SONY purists out there will dispute this. But I have Sony files here with me, and I’m looking at both side by side… and Dragons grain (noise) structure is cleaner and it has more range.
Dragon is now the King. (AND… I’m not going to harp on about the size of it or the price comparisons). or did I ..ha !

The single one sentence i can say that can sum up everything is this..
It’s the first camera ever that I have used that captures exactly what I see with my own eye.
Never have I seen this before. !
