Don't know if everyone has seen this, but BM is allowing us to download the files for ALL of the sample videos posted. Before I found this I had only seen the download feature enabled for one of John's videos. But they can all be downloaded here. - https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/blackmagicpocketcinemacamera/gallery

That's amazing, thanks for providing the link!

If these are camera files, why is the 'Nature' footage, which was supposedly shot in RAW actually a ProRes file? 

I also notice there's no audio on the clips. Were the mics turned off or have these files been adjusted for the downloads?

Grant made so many comments about the built in audio, but has given little info away on it.

It doesn't really matter, but I'm just curious ?

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.

I can't imagine that John shot that at anything other 180 degrees.

And it looks pretty oobvious that he did.

Actually, he didn't. According to the files that we can now download, 'Close Up Night' was 192 deg and 'Walking Day' was 215 deg.

@John Brawley do you know / remember if that's correct? 

Also, that's what I thought about the audio.

I think maybe 192 is right because we had some flicker from practicals but I don't think 215 sounds right for day.

Ok, I wanted to see how organic/filmic I could get this footage without going too vintage. I was going for something filmic while still modern. What do you folks think? Ignore the low resolution image below... it's actually at 1080p and looks much better. Not sure why YouTube always show these awful looking placeholder images?

As someone who has no experience with BMD's newer cameras, I didn't know that was an option. I kind of love that ? Saves a little (very little) space when shooting certain things.

(where's the chroma noise from the vimeo clips?)

I think you might have crushed it in your grade. I still see it in my grade.

My grade on it.

 

Looks nice, add a touch more contrast and it will be singing.

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.

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.

I love these BTS production stills. And it still makes me happy to see your stripped down Micro rig. I may forego the P4K for the time being and pick up a used Micro and I was curious how you expose your Micro footage in these scenarios? With my limited experience with the Micro and Pocket, I would zebra at 90% for ProRes HQ. Do you meter your shots? Zebras? Waveforms or False Color? And did the P4K’s sensor change your method in any way?
