So a couple of weeks ago John Brawley tested the Blackmagic Pocket Camera at night and here are the results for all to see. Not really touted as a great lowlight camera, it is good to see some night footage from it. Though not the best lowlight footage I have seen out of a camera, there is still lots of high dynamic range demonstrated in the video. After all for a camera that is priced around a thousand dollars, we can only ask so much. All the footage was shot in Apple ProRes at ISO 800 for the first few shots and the rest of it was shot at ISO 1600. I will let you be the judge. Check out the embedded video and feel free to leave your comments and thoughts about the footage below.
