BMPCC - Robust color in RAW?

Recommended Posts


I've started playing with my BMPCC, and am wondering why my RAW video looks so good right out of the camera. From every review and sample video I've seen, RAW video should look flat and washed out, but my RAW video has a very saturated look to it. I'm in "film" mode (no option for video in RAW) . I've attached a JPG sample. Format is RAW, 200ASA, 30 FPS, 180 degree shutter angle. Firmware is up to date. Using a cheap panasonic lens for testing purposes. What am I doing wrong?

Please help.

I did not find the right solution from the internet.

Yeah, that’s def not what it looks like on my BMPCC’s DNGs. Can you please upload a DNG to here?

you will need to check that your record settings (Dynamic Range) are set to 'Film' CinemaDNG RAW. I usually set the viewfinder to 'film' too

Keep ISO to the native 800 (experience tells me it is pointless doing anything else in reality)

You can’t video DR on pocket while shooting RAW. It defaults to Film.
