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.

More likely turning down/off the inputs but still recording silent audio tracks.

I messed around with the Daylight Models shot a little bit. I went for a little more of a flat, matte grade. I really liked the color nuances in the whites and neutral colors in the set up, so here's my poor attempt... 

EDIT: Nevermind... as soon as I loaded it, the contrast was way more punchy than it shows in my NLE... Ugh. I really need to invest in a new computer with a calibrated screen.

Heh, I can only assume mine is still calibrated. I lost my Spyder in a move, so not sure what everyone else see's how mine looks either! That can be a real problem LoL.But yeah it looks like something you would do on my screen. I like it.

Been lurking in this thread since the announcement. Thought I'd throw my hat in the ring and put some color on the footage. I wanted to color it with the least amount of lift to get it looking good, so I chose colored it within Premiere only using the available Lumetri Color panel. No sharpening or grain correction (adding or removing), no HSL Secondary, just color. My rationale for this being that I think the BPCC4k would fair rather well on shoots for a media company who's main delivery is YT/FB/.Com etc. This is the world I currently work in professionally, and the skill level of a video team in that world can vary greatly. 

I think it fairs pretty well without going with an extreme pro level of correction, with fairly minimal time spent. Which is exciting when I'm thinking about projects where the deadline is tight.

I love what you did with the balloon footage. I tried that but hated all of my attempts... so much blue, cool to see you pull the orange out of the sky.

Yeah I really like the BM color science in this PCC4k, but it does skew cool in the highlights and mids for sure. I'm pushing quite a bit of orange and red into them for that balloon shot, using the color wheels in Lumetri.

Pretty sure that was just what the white balance was set to.

Maybe, but I found it to be the case in the other 2 shots I colored as well. All three had to have reds and oranges pushed into the highs and mids. 

They're actually properly white balanced. You just tend to prefer things to be very warm looking judging from your grades.

For example, the sun is rising in the balloon shot and everything else in the shot is in shadow so it would actually be very blue because it's being lit by the sky itself. In the forest shot, you made all the trees very yellow which makes things feel sunnier, but the trees are obviously green.

A lot of BMD shooters seem to do that though, but it's a preference, it's not accurate.

Fair enough, I believe you're right. I'm definitely no professional colorist, and I probably have started to lean towards preferring more warmer tones lately.
