My cameras and kit

  1. This is a promotional reel I've just made for the small videography business I'm currently setting up (one-man-band doing local community organisations, weddings etc). Everything in it was shot on low-end/cheap cameras, several of which have been discussed and compared extensively on this forum over the last year or two. To boot, other than the Tokina 11-16mm all of the lenses were each bought for under $300. After a couple of enquiries about the gear I used for this reel, I've decided to add subtitles to show each camera (and lens) each shot was taken with. Just click the 'CC' button in t
  2. Sorry if this has been asked, but I cannot find it with search. I have a speedbooster for Nikon glass on mFT that I use on my GH3. I'm considering a used BMPCC camera and just wanted to check that the speedbooster is OK for this. I have read there is a special BMPCC version, but not sure what is the difference. If I cannot use the speed booster the BMPCC is not so interesting. Got to love the IQ of the camera though! Thanks in advance.
  3. Hello everyone. I just bought a perfect condition Angenieux 12-120mm 2.2 with C-Mount and I need to adapt it to the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. Using a cheap C-Mount/MFT adapter ring (very like this one:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321527133930) I can't find neither infinite focus nor parfocal zooming. I bought the lens expecially for parfocal zooming, so I really need to reach it. Does anyone have experience with the lens and can help me out? - Are there reccomended-best fitting C/MFT adapter to be used with the Angenieux 12-120? Most says the Metabones one or the Ciecio7 Ebay Seller one
  4. I received my BM Pocket last week (after buying it in the summer sale and waiting aaaagggges for it). Anyway, I haven't had much time to play with it so this is my first attempt (RAW and ProRes 422 mix): Graded in FCPX (Resolve to convert the RAW) I love the camera already. The image is just so rich and full and happy to be pushed around. The moire bothers me a fair bit, but it's not a deal breaker.

    My first BMPCC film ...

    I received my BM Pocket last week (after buying it in the summer sale and waiting aaaagggges for it). Anyway, I haven't had much time to play with it so this is my first attempt (RAW and ProRes 422 mix): Graded in FCPX (Resolve to convert the RAW) I love the camera already.

  6. No official prices announced. Estimated between 300 - 400 $.
  7. Hi, i have a BMPCC with a set of very small and nice Switar lenses and i am loving this compact setup. . Now i am looking for an anamorphic adapter.or lens that has some characteristics that allow me to keep things small and manageable,: 1. Small - dont want a lens support or something bulky. 2. Focus Through - I am tired of double focusing.:) 3. 1.5x or 2x, i love oval bokeh. . Is there such a thing? The iscorama 36 maybe?
  8. Here. Remaining time is top on everyone's wish list, very probably it will soon come for the smaller models. As histogram (a nice one!) and audio levels appear through the touchscreen-function 'Head-Up', they might be still missing for the Pocket, but let's be thankful that there are things to come (instead of the theory that BMD abandoned the BMPCC after clearing their storage rooms with the summer special).
  9. text reads: According to Holdan UK the UK distributor for Blackmagic, BMD are going to withdraw the Blackmagic Pocket Camera within the next 24-48hrs. We currently have 6 Pocket cameras available at this price (Due back in stock end of this week). Once they are gone the price will have to rise back up to £558 ex vat so get yours now whilst we have stock at this price. http://www.3dbroadcastsales.com/cameras/cinematic-camcorders/blackmagic-design-cinema-camera/blackmagic-pocket-cinema-camera-7366 Marketing ploy? You decide..
  10. This is a trailer for my new short film which will be getting it's first screening on July 17th. I shot this entirely on two BMPCCs both with speed boosters. I hope you all like it! Trey
  11. Hello, This year started with some new 4k consumer cameras releases and 4k projectors, TVs etc. I'm not an expert, but it seems that this 4k thing is not close to become the standard yet. It took years to get 1080p RAW and once that it hit the market, they released the 4k, but it seems rushed. Now, I'm writing a script for a feature, which I'd like to shoot with my own gear. For that I am planning on buying a BMPCC+speedbooster. That is a major upgrade from my T2i. My question is: Is it a bad investment to get the BMPCC now, or is it wiser to wait and see what the market brings in
  12. Hello to everyone, I've been looking for a small anamorphic adapter for a long long time from now, and finally, I got mine. I've been hesitating about which one to take : the search of the perfect adapter that would suit all my needs.. for a reasonnable price ofc.. (Yeah, I know..) :rolleyes: Anyway I'm so happy to tell you that I "may" have found it : The Yashica Scope, 1.5x adapter anamorphic for 8mm ! (Well let's make the things clear, I was looking for a tiny, compact, and light weight adapter, to be paired to some old school c-mount lenses on a BMPCC, I don't cla

    BMPCC or GH4?

    Hello everyone, My first post. I'm about to buy BMPCC or a GH4. I'm not sure of which one would suit me best, and I´d like to hear some comments. I'm interested in the experience of everyone who is kind enough to share it, and I don't expect a consensus. Let me pose some questions and add a few details about the problems I'm planning to face with either camera: - I'll be delivering purely HD for at least two or three more years (I live in Mexico, a country that's usually a few years behind the US and the first world...). A 4K ready camera is not a bad thing, but it's not essential. I
  14. Hello I'm trying to figurate what lens are the best for me. Art Director and Visual Effect Artist with more than 10 years of experience. I want to enter in the film directions realms and buying a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera for start, and need advice for lens for videoclips and short films mainly, to archive the best cinematography quality possible. Budget $3000 top for cover all the lens range, (no run and gun, no vintage lens ... from now) This are my options: Option A: $2530 Metabone SpeedBooster (SB) for BMPCC: $490 24mm: Samyang 24mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Nikon F $7
  15. As many of you will have noticed, our little precious is prone to moire, not only in raw. I have gone a long way to overcome all problems with this beast, but moire makes me sick to a point where I just want to sell the whole bundle and just stick to my G6. However, the more I compare my most felicitous test shots to what I knew before, I know I would regret it forever. It's time to address the issue. When I bought the Pocket, I reckoned the Sigma 18-35 with the Metabones BMPCC Speedbooster could substitute all my MFT lenses, and I sold them all (now only own the 14-42mm G6 kit len
  16. Hi everybody, 2 Years i'm following Eoshd and only discover the forum now ... So i share with You a series of travelling movie i start to shoot with a blackmagic pocket CC with a pancake 20mm f1,7, This starts in Japan / Tokyo:
  17. I bought a Chinese Focal Reducer on eBay for $96. Shipped here to U.S. in one week. Tried it with with a Nikon 24mm 2.8D. Unfortunately, the focal reducer does not "lock" into the BMPCC, just turns enough to stay on gingerly. Mounts onto a Panasonic GF3 fine. Wrote the seller, waiting for response. UPDATE: see below, it can be fixed. You would need a dremel, some flat sanding disks. Naturally, would be best if you get one that works perfectly. HOW IF FIXED IT HERE :http://maxotics.com/?p=296 Upshot BEFORE YOU BUY ANY FOCAL REDUCER ASK IF IT SPECIFICALLY MOUNTS ONTO YOUR CA

    BMPCC vs GM1

    As much as I love the BMPCC, and I do, I can no longer ignore how much time and effort I work on shooting, copying and grading the footage. Video is secondary for me. So I bought a GM1 based on Andrew's insight and have to agree that when time is at a premium I can get more done with the GM1. I'm going to sell my BMPCC because I know I'll be tortured knowing it's here. If I was making films, there is NO WAY I would do this. The BMPCC is an extraordinary camera. It is truly a "cinema" camera. What surprised me about the GM1 is how small it is. It makes the BMPCC look big. That gave m
  19. I shot this after my BMPCC Speed Booster finally arrived. When I mount the Tokina 11-16 f2.8 DX2 to it, I can notice a big problem with sharpness in the center, especially when wide open. The corners, ironically, seem to be way better. Even when stepped down, the sharpness is not really good. Does anyone else have that problem and/or a solution for it?
  20. Hello Forum! I'm from Russia This is my design - rig for BMPCC
  21. GH3 vs. GH4 vs. BMPCC Comparison
  22. This is my fifth attempt to find an affordable stabilization solution for the BMPCC, particularly for the heavy setup with Speedbooster and Sigma 18-35. It works perfectly, and the only two things that are missing are 1. Pistol grip to be clicked underneath the cage with a quick release plate and 2. Lanc-controller with button on top of the grip for START/STOP. It consists of an old, self-built shoulder pad with counterweight (aluminum rack, ~$ 5,- , bent in a vice and padded with foam rubber, ~ $ 2,-), a micro goose neck with 3/8" connections, ~ $ 7,- , filled with a steel rod, ~ $1,-
  23. While filming in Brazil in April (not over 30°C) I noticed that the colour on my BMPCC's buttons was "washing" away while I touched them. I'm NOT using my finger nail here. Does anyone else have that problem or has heared of it?
