My cameras and kit

  1. Does anyone know how much frame coverage LOMO's 16mm lenses get? Will the Kinor 16 lenses cover the BMPCC's S16 sensor? I ask because Kinor 16 lenses are dirt cheap on ebay, right now I can only find this one but I seem to recall there being a few more options (a 10mm and an 8mm and some longer options maybe?)
  2. I single-handedly shot an entire narrative short film during the first lockdown, using the original BMPCC. The camera performed magnificently but I did have it fully rigged out. Shot using two SLR Magic primes - 10mm T2.1 and the 17mm T1.6. A one-person crew and one-mother cast, this is a film featuring my poor mum, who’s never acted, and a very, very unlikely hero… Jean-Luc Godard once said “All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.” My mum doesn’t speak very good English, so I had to do without dialogue. I didn’t have a gun so we had to do without that too. We couldn’t leave the house, so I shot it all there. And I had no crew to help me, so I did everything myself. If anyone has any feedback or questions I'm always happy to hear! https://youtu.be/SBwje8EDl84
  3. Hey all, I'm looking to shoot a narrative short film with controlled lighting early next year and am thinking about shooting it on my original BMPCC... I know, I know. No 4K, terrible low-light, and horrible battery life. But if 1080p was fine, controlled lighting throughout, and an external battery solution, is it better for me to use the original and cancel my 4K pre-order? I could use the money saved to pay for an additional cine prime/actually pay actors a decent wage... What would be the advantages in this case of using the 4K over the original?
  4. Shot in Rec709 and ProResLT! ha Quick BTS on my YT channel: The final edited result is already up: And this is how a clip looked straight out of camera (you can even hear how I recorded the right track at a lower level than the left track! Intentionally so as a safety measure):
  5. Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum but have been following it for a while. I'd like to share some music videos I shot for an electronic music album I wrote and just released. They were all filmed on the Blackmagic pocket cinema camera. The videos are essentially camera tests, but I tried to capture the mood of the music when putting it all together. I used the Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 and 55-200mm f3.5-5.6 lens with a Metabones speed booster (Nikon mount), and also the Panasonic Lumix 14-42mm kit lens and Olympus 9mm bodycap lens for the 4th video here. Editing and colour was done on Davinci Resolve 12.5 ASGAT (raw) Story of Photon (raw) Themis I (raw) Parallax Error (Prores HQ)
  6. I did a rough test between three cameras: the Nikon D750, Lumix GH2, and Black Magic Pocket Camera. I wanted to see how their videos compared in general. I'm swamped in work, so I couldn't make this as good as I wanted. I literally shot it on lunch break from a day job at an PR firm. However, I think the results are clear and I wanted to share the video and a link to my blog with you guys in hopes that others can learn or give me some good feedback on questions I raise. I'm rusty on the whole shooting thing because I've devoted the last 3 years to teaching and commercial work/writing. It's good to get back into it, and necessary because I have a script I want to shoot next month. http://www.production1studio.com/2016/02/23/3-camera-test/ I know some won't be interested in the blog link above, like I'm plugging myself, but there is a lot of insight into the footage, what I was trying to do, and a big piece on lenses and the way they work (like feel) on different cameras.
  7. In the process of updating some equipment. Had this for about a year and though I love it, my work is moving in a direction where it's not as practical. I have some basic accessories, and the voigtlander 17.5mm. There is some cosmetic wear, but overall everything is in solid condition and works perfectly. This cam has been a great little work horse. http://www.ebay.com/itm/171860800251?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/171859860073?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Voigtlander listing is ending very soon!
  8. Hi guys, I was just having a look on b&h at the ef to bmpcc speed boosters and found two different versions listed: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1064603-REG/metabones_mb_spef_bmpcc_bm1_canon_ef_to_bmpcc.html and http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1174582-REG/metabones_mb_spef_bmpcc_bt1_metabones_canon_ef_lens.html I was just wondering if anyone knows what the 'T' in the second link means? Is it an updated version? Thanks.
  9. Pretty much the final edit for this short music doc - if you see anything that just sticks out like a sore thumb, please say (after a while you just stop seeing things). Thanks for watching or commenting...

  10. I got in on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (bmpcc) fire sale and in preperation for receiving my new camera I have been researching neutral density filters. What I would like to know is what are people's preferences between single ND filters and variable ND filters. And also your thoughts on IR filtration for the bmpcc. I already know if you go the "straight" variable ND route Tiffen seems to be a good trade off as far as quality and price. Dave Dugdale did an incredible review of "straight" variable ND filters. Honestly it is amazing it took an amateur like Dave to do such a test. I see so many posts on the internet from people who could have either saved themselves money or used a higher quality product had someone simply done what Dave did and test them out. These people are pros mind you! So the choice was simply, right? Wrong! I then came across another video showing IR (near infrared) issues with the BMCC... and other cameras including Alexa products. So there are numerous solutions. One could say the near IR pollution thing is nonsense and just get a "straight" Tiffen variable ND. Or you could go with a set of individual ND filters and skip the variable. You could also get an IR cut filter and use either single NDs or variable ND. Or you could get the Tiffen combined IRND variable filter. Or you could get the single IR ND filter sets. B&H has a strong three filter set for $164.50. Okay, that is a lot of options. The reason I posted is I want to know which one will give you the best results. I know the variable NDs have the polarization "issue." Sometimes I like using a polarizer on video so it isn't always an issue for me. Also there is a hack where by you turn the whole filter assembly en bloc to reduce or get rid of the polarization effect. I don't know how effective that is. This guy shows the "hack" to optimize the use of a variable ND filter... Here is a video showcasing the Tiffen IRND variable filter. So what should I do?
  11. Hi, I´m using a Sigma 18-35 1.8 with a Metabones Speed Booster on my BMPCC. What I noticed is that the left side of the image isn´t perfectly in focus while the right side is spot-on. If I try to get the left side as sharp as possible, the middle of the picture and the right side will be slightly out of focus. Please take a look at the pictures below. Notice how the very left side seems to be quite blurry, while the right side isn´t that bad. The aperture was 2.5. '> '> I´ve tried two Sigma 18-35 and two different Speed Boosters, but the results were exactly the same. Has anyone else noticed similar effects? I would be very happy if someone with a Sigma 18-35 and a SB tried to shoot something outside with the lens wide open and focus set to infinity.
  12. I'm starting to set myself up a small videography business: just a one-man-band doing local stuff - community group promos, weddings, etc. I'm still working on the website (www.lintelfilms.co.uk) and have just finished the 2nd draft of my promotional film. I'd really appreciate your feedback on the film. I don't mind at all if you are brutal!
  13. Looks like my BMPCC is dying. Or something is wrong with it. I've had it for a few months, and it worked just fine until now. With the latest firmware update. I haven't used it for the past three weeks, and it has been stored appropriately in a closet during that time. Today I took it out to prepare it for a shoot, and noticed that it wouldn't power on normally. First I thought the battery had dried out inside it, so I swapped it. Same result. When I press the power button, the screen will flash on like it normally does, but after that the camera goes dark, in less than a full second. Another press of the button either does the same, just a blip on the screen, then nothing, or it doesn't do anything. After recharging and trying out four different batteries and even with the power chord plugged in the camera, with or without a battery inside, the result is always the same. The camera powers on for less than a second, then becomes a brick. The camera does still have a warranty, obviously, and I know I'll probably have to send it in for a warranty repair, but I was just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem, and if anyone might know if there's anything I could try before sending it in. After all, sending it in for a warranty repair will probably take quite a while, and I'd like to avoid the hassle, if this happens to be some known issue and fixable by the user.
  14. For those of you who want to look at beautiful footage--don't look!!! :) For those, like me, who will watch even the worst camera tests, then there may be something here for you. I adore the BMPCC, but the GM1 is very close, almost perfect, when you don't require subtle color and wide DR. I have the Sony 10-18mm lens on the a7 (which it isn't made for). Casual shooting with the Sony a7 and 10-18mm as long shot. Max is shooting with a Panasonic GM1 and an old Panasonic 14-45 lens with external OIS button (useful for BMPCC). Frank is shooting with a BMPCC and Olympus 17mm/1.8 lens (ProRes HQ). I meant to use the sound from the BMPCC but we still need to work on levels. So I'm using the A7's camera audio track. As you can see, the BMPCC is so sharp, that the 17mm is quite jittery. Beautiful lens though! Don't jump to hard conclusions from this video. I hardly spent any time on the footage. The a7 probably wasn't set up well and the clip probably needed more sharpening. The a7 and a6000 shoot very nice video. I'll put that stuff on Vimeo later. I edited this in Sony Vegas Pro 12. I'm new to the multi-camera feature. Again, haven't had a lot of time. Was fun. Love all three cameras.
  15. Hi forum. This is my development for BMPCC http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr-6hdQPlUk
  16. 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 the Vimeo play bar to turn the subtitles on. I'd welcome feedback on my reel, but this is mainly posted here in the hope it might be of use to others: Sorry the subtitles aren't synched perfectly to each edit (it's not easy with Amara). You'll work it out though I hope ...
  17. 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.
  18. 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. Any thoughs? - How can I get infinite focus and parfocal zooming without modifying the lens? - Is there anyone who has it successfully (parfocal and infinity focus) mounted on the Pocket? Thanks everyone!
  19. 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.

  21. No official prices announced. Estimated between 300 - 400 $.
  22. 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?
