I'm skeptical  

I can make a video and say it's made with this camera too and it seems like a good way to get views. Jus' Sayn'

 

Seems legit. They have posted pics on Facebook of their camera setup at the zoo (basically handheld with a Samsung SSD). As well as shots of it on a crane for use in a k-pop music video.

Not to be spiteful, but where's that guy that argued these Samsung SSD's would never work and it was all marketing hype? ? But seriously this is very exciting. I'm glad BM sent this out to a regular user to showcase its broad uses.

Beautiful piece! Lovely colours and the grain looks 'filmic' enough ;).

This one may be my favorite. The shot at 1:35 looks effin brilliant.

Has there been any word about IR filtration on these videos?

Ha, just realized that’s the shot they used for their thumbnail.

The guy who shot the Seoul Zoo footage had this to say over on bmcuser:

"I did another shoot yesterday which I'm editing right now. I used Hoya Pro NDs (2-4-6 stops) and I haven't noticed a thing related to IR. Blacks are neutral and clean"

So sounds promising! And yeah, that footage is beautiful.

Thanks. One of these days, after a few more short films, this camera looks like it could be a logical upgrade for me. If I can scrounge the money together I may get it sooner to practice color grading. Being an FCPX user, ProRes is always appealing.
