Blackmagic 4K Production Camera Put to the Test – What do you think?

The One River Media team had access to a BMC beta Blackmagic 4K Production Camera for only three hours so they shot an event filled with BMW cars.

From an article – “Blackmagic 4K Production Camera Used for Documentary Short” from doddleNEWS.

Via DoddleNEWS:

The short was released by One River Media, with Marco Solario doing the gunning as part of a larger documentary called “Ten Tenths,” about turning street cars into serious racing rigs. They couldn’t use the camera for the entire film, unfortunately, since they were able to get a pre-release BMD 4K Production camera running beta firmware for a brief 3-hour window.

Still, they made the most of it by shooting a car event at a local high performance car store in Northern California. They shot interiors, exteriors, interviews, and even a few slider shots in order to take the camera through its paces.

All shots used EF mount lenses including Canon 50mm f/1.2L, 85mm f/1.2L II, 135mm f/2L, Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6, and since the camera is Super35mm, there’s little in the way of crop factor to deal with, which is nice. And because it was a beta version of the firmware, they shot in ProRes HQ with LOG.
