Blooming and white orbs with BMCC (Yes, not the pocket camera, the BMCC)

Recommended Posts

Hello~

 

I was getting scared off by all the white orb issues with the upcoming pocket cam, so I went ahead and decided to buy the BMCC 2.5k cam in MFT mount.  I went home to do some tests and discovered that I was getting the very same white orbs effects that people had been reporting with the pocket cam.  I figured it was a fluke, but I exchanged mine for a new one today only to find that the second one was having the same problem as well.  I haven't heard any other BMCC MFT owners complain about this, but I wanted to reach out to see if anyone else was having the issue.  I've attatched some screen shots of footage I shot with both cameras, so you can see the issue.  All footage was shot in Pro res, 200 ASA, with the SLR Magic 25mm .95 hyperprime.  

 

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.  Andrew, I know you own this lens and the BMCC MFT, have you ever had issues with this combo before?

 

Thanks. 

 

~Tom

Do you have the original raw DNG's? You should ask on the black magic camera forums.

 

It was all shot on pro res, but I still have the original files.  I have posted on the BMC forums, but wanted to post here as well, especially because I know Andrew has also used the same camera/ lens combination.

      Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera in Excellent Condition. I only used this in a few test footage scenarios but it wasn’t right for my needs. Included with this will be Davinci Resolve 15 with SD Card and code it came with. The Smallrig BMMCC Cage and Top Handle to keep the camera protected. Another item is the S-Bus cable included. 
      Selling for $950. 
      I have an Aputure v5 monitor and NPF-Battery bridge + Batteries I can include for a higher offer for the complete kit.

      Hey guys,
      I'm selling a brand new Wooden Camera cage for the BMMCC plus the Wooden Camera PL Mount kit for it.
      Asking price is 300€ for everything ! ! ! !
      I'm in Italy and I can ship to Europe for fair prices and even WW if needed (postal or UPS).
      BTW I also have a SpeedBooster for the Pocket and the Micro, Canon EF lens version for sale in another thread.

      Hi,
      I have a brand new unopened Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k that I bought from B&H. Still in it's wrapped plastic seal from B&H so obviously it includes everything that comes with it. I am thinking/considering going a different route with my camera gear and looking to gauge interest if anyone is looking for one. 
      Let me know if you're interested.

      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?
