As the release date looms near for both Blackmagic's Pocket Camera & 4K Cinema Camera we are all eager to see footage from them. In one of my previous posts I was able to link to some test footage here: First BM Pocket Camera footage from a great DP out of Australia named John Brawley who has been working with Blackmagic testing the camera. The footage looked very promising and very similar from what we see saw with the 2.5k version released earlier this year. Well John Brawley has some more footage to show us from this wonderful little camera. I like this test because it explores the camera in a more in-depth way using a variety of Aperture and ISO settings as well as different lens combos. It also demonstrates the camera in a variety of different locations. I really feel the beach footage demonstrates how well this camera preforms. I like how sharp the water looks and how well the waves hold together. I feel that with some of other cameras using a lessor sensor and codec other than
(Apple ProRes 422) these shots would not have held so well together. Now keep in mind some of this footage is handheld, I will let you be the judge. Enjoy and please comments your thoughts.
