How good are you at spotting the looks of the three Blackmagic cameras? Hint: all three (Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4K, Blackmagic Cinema Camera, and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera) were used in the making of this music video.
Dave Murray (Director/Editor) and DP Captain Hook shot the debut single for Lizzie Marvelly with all three of Blackmagic's cameras. The challenge is to guess which one was used to shot each shot in the video.

About BMPC 4K – Lizzie Marvelly // Generation Young
See If you can guess in the comments which camera was used for each shot.
I was really impressed with how well all three cameras cut together in the edit. I also found despite the difference in file size, prores was a lot easier/faster to edit with in fcpx than what Im used to with h.264 dslr footage.
One day shoot, 30 giant balloons, one massive tank of helium, one city street, one sacred mountain, 25 extras, one awesome NZ singer and an amazing hard working crew!
Big thanks to NZonair, Lizzie Marvelly and the cast and crew for working so hard to pull this off in such a short amount of time!
And of course Blackmagic Design for the use of the 4k Production Camera. The effort BMD have put into making these cameras over the last couple years is truly incredible!
