  1. XC10 or XC15 is great if you're shooting outdoors and need a compact camera. I would shoot C-log or Wide DR. If you're shooting over 1250/1600 ISO, I would just shoot a baked in profile, avoid log.
  2. Working on a new project currently in post. This was a few stops over and shot at 15000k! It was my first day using the camera and something happened with the settings. I am having a colorist grade it. Here is what he was able to get this out of the frame.
  3. Really beautiful images with the worst song possible. I thought a window had popped up in the background somewhere. The original bmpcc can be made to look like a Arri or Red at 1080p.
  4. Same here. 35mm F2 and the 24-105 or 100mm Macro IS if you’re indoors.
  5. More importantly, you’re completely screwed on location if you don’t charge the only battery available. Do they have an auto shutoff like the updated rode vmp did? 5 hours is also super limiting if you have a full day of shooting...

    Sony A6400

    Yikes. That color too. 😕
  7. Looks nice. I love a compact setup. Do you shoot mostly at night or in low luminance areas? It can be a struggle to compete with natural light in a bright space, having a few 5/1s can a life saver to create a nice look.
  8. This has been said over and over but is not true. None of the BMP4K images come close. They're not even in the same realm in my opinion.
  9. Would this work? https://www.ebay.com/i/312231238771?chn=ps&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F711-117182-37290-0%2F2%3Fmpre%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.ebay.com%252Fi%252F312231238771%253Fchn%253Dps%26itemid%3D312231238771%26targetid%3D477926080956%26device%3Dm%26adtype%3Dpla%26googleloc%3D9032824%26poi%3D%26campaignid%3D1488062876%26adgroupid%3D57569192076%26rlsatarget%3Dpla-477926080956%26abcId%3D1139326%26merchantid%3D7994914%26gclid%3DCjwKCAiAjNjgBRAgEiwAGLlf2iWcELFEIa__CoKPc6sAnFVvdcFJTv0tmW19p_unqOxHvyIgdN1QmhoCJI4QAvD_BwE%26srcrot%3D711-117182-37290-0%26rvr_id%3D1785912243437%26rvr_ts%3Dba943caf1670ab14e963b67afffb24f7
  10. Realistically you don’t need RAW when the colors look that good. It does do 1080/12 bit internal. Gotta be one of the easiest cameras to get an amazing image out of with very little effort.
  11. I would assume something with the sequence settings. Can you switch to the camera's native? Are you able to check your settings on an old project file and mirror those.
  12. Nah, I don’t think I really touched those files. Maybe used the three way color to ease off the black level a tiny bit or shift the WB.
  13. I was using the C300 Log 2 or 3 LUT? Probably not the proper way to do it, but I am happy with the results. Sorry, I can't remember which profile it was. Early on people were recommending it as the best profile with the least amount of NR.
  14. You may have seen this, but I shot this when I first bought the camera. Looking at this footage reminds of how crazy easy the camera is to shoot with and how good the stabilizer on the long end is crazy good. The shots at :09 were shot on the "standard" profile I believe, with the NR and Sharpening all the way down. They seem to have a thicker color than the other clips I shot. You could easily cut shots like that with a C300 and not notice. The indoor shots are all ETTR (expose to the right, kept the clouds jammed to the right on the histogram.) The highlights are so soft I don't think it would matter if they clipped anyway.
  15. I forgot it went to 2.8 on the wide end. 2.8 is great. I just notice the image gets noticeably mushy if you’re all the way closed down.
  16. It depends how fast your subject is moving and if you are following motion or not. I would suggest running tests. You're not going to be able to do any crazy twixtor or optical flow with 180 degree shutter.
  17. You will, but it needs to be F3.5 - F8 and it needs to be 4K. I had my best luck with CLOG @ ISO500. Some of the built in profiles are nice if you turn the noise reduction all the way down. Talking about this camera makes me want this camera again. The colors it produces are just really so nice. Perfect camera to bring on trips, as long as you’re only shooting in the day. The range on the lens is incredible.
  18. The RED cameras in general have to be one of the easiest cameras to find for.a rental. It all depends on your market, but in Seattle there are so many. Harder to find a Canon C300ii... Which I use a lot more.
  19. You need to conform to 24p. Don’t slow it down with slow motions tools, conform the media. I don’t use revolve but in premiere you right click on the clip in the media window. I am sure it is done similarly.
  20. Looks good. If you’re renting, why not the C300 mk2? I’m assuming for narrative the high but rate would be more valuable than the 60p in 4K.
  21. Starting bid is 2500. This forum isn't really for ebay links.
  22. Agreed. I was using the F3 with the 7Q for a while. You get really nice heavy and smooth movements with that setup. The way the camera settles is different than a camera with no weight. Surprised so many people would recommend steady cams and Ronins? There’s no need to complicate things. You need a well balanced rig that weights 7/8 pounds.
  23. I guess if you’re only shooting overcrank at high shutter speeds. Once you’re shooting at ISO400/24p in the sun, you will definitely need one. From my experience with the OG pocket, the color was just better with an IR cut filter on all the time, not just when using NDs. Was it really worse? I mean the Iphone was producing more accurate color. If Black Magic or anyone for that matter would have addressed this with the original pocket, you wouldn’t have seen brown footage for the first year and half.
  24. No complaints about the IR pollution, but this needs to well documented. It would be nice if it was in the manual. Multiple people have said it was no longer a issue and I haven’t seen any tests. What percentage of OG pocket owners even know about IR filters? You know most people are just worried about which ssd mount to get for their cage. 😂
  25. It looks like it vignettes with the speed booster though?
