  1. Andrew, the comments about grading weren’t intended for you specifically. Read the post. I was talking in generalities about recent facebook groups I’d left and a similar entitled tone here. It was not a personal attack but you chose to take it that way. Cmon, I shoot these shots for BMD for exactly this purpose. To be downloaded and graded. If I was truly precious about it I wouldn’t do it again and again would I ? You’re throwing a tantrum, publicly, because you dind’t get an invite to a BMD event that is seems like few even knew about. Somehow you think that’s got somethi
  2. I don’t actually work for Blackmagic. It’s not my job to make you happy or smooth anything over when you have an issue with them not inviting you to an event. It’s not my job to pander to anyone. I don’t answer to BMD. Just like you I’m an independent opinion and my opinion doesn’t reflect Blackmagic’s views. I think you’re misunderstand why I’m here. Nice job on the personal attack Andrew. JB
  3. Nope. You all aren't my customers. I don't sell anything. I thought you were professional colleagues. I'm not here to sell cameras. I'm a working cinematographer. I used to enjoy sharing what I knew. I do unpaid consulting work with many manufacturers, including BMD. Feel free to delete every single one of my posts. You don't have to host them. JB
  4. What a shame. Who are these "deep state" BMD insiders that are here pushing an agenda ? Myself and Hook. Who else ? What do you guys think, there's a plot and conspiracy ? You guys don't wat these contributions I guess ? I'm here because I've been a member here for years and I'm on many camera forums and this is just another one I like to read and contribute to where I can. I want to know where all the clowns that were saying on this thread that the world was going to end because BMD didn't have any footage out yet and that definitely meant something was very wrong and the sh
  5. It takes a lot of processing power to do what is essentially a detailed and sophisticated real time animation overlay over the live image (or even from the live image) JB
  6. He’s posted a few times on the BMD forum about this issue. Some others have tested his assertions as well. My takeaway is that the edges are “softer” and have more aberrations with fast primes because the design isn’t optimised for the different thickness in cover glass (not made by Sony) https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=71899 and https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=26122 JB EDIT and actually this post and the video below it demonstrates the differences visually. https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/v
  7. The sensor maker doesn’t necessarily make the sensor stack. The very fact that the sensor stack thickness is consistent with BMD cameras should tell you this. Wide open lenses with shorter cover glass isn’t the issue. It’s because we’re adding another optical formula in between the rear of the lens and the sensor. The thickness isn’t important to performance either. Obviously or we’d have noticed major problems by now ! It changes the optics performance of what a speed booster is doing though. And THATS the issue. It’s not worse. Or better. It’s just different to other M
  8. It’s not to do with getting focus at infinity at all. its about optimising performance with very fast lenses when shooting wide open. Previously it meant making a specifically optimised BMD SB variant to account for the different IR cover glass thickness. You can still use a regular SB and it will still hit infinity. It’s just less optimised to work with faster than F2 lenses. JB
  9. The Hoya PRO filters are in effect IR cut filters. I’m the same way that Firecrest, Nisi and Lee ND filters aren’t designated IR cut filters but work that way. The sensor is covered by the same low IR cut glass as every other BMD camera is. A regular ND filter will show IR pollution in the right circumstances. JB
  10. I doubt it. Philosophically it's not what BMD do. JB
  11. I think maybe 192 is right because we had some flicker from practicals but I don't think 215 sounds right for day. JB
  12. I had the audio in camera turned off in mine. You don't want to listen to me directing the cast and "handling" the camera. JB
  13. Let's see what you colourists are made of. JB
  14. Leslie. You've admitted you've not watched any footage and have no production experience. You're speaking to an audience here in this thread that has a either a great deal of experience, or lot more experience than you yourself and who have actually bothered to read a little more before posting to an audience of like minded individuals. Consider researching a little more thoroughly at least before throwing some handgrenades of questions like the ones you dropped in your previous post. I don't even know where to begin if I have to explain why it can take much longer to grade a
  15. It's the same size. Here's some examples of scenarios for me where using a micro that will be replaced by a p4K once I can get one. JB Yes I've been on GEN 4 for a while with the Ursa's and of course the P4K and use them for monitoring. It's VERY hard to go back to using VIDEO. JB
