Hey guys I got my bmpcc6k last wk and finally got to take it out this wknd to do some test shots. Here are some screen grabs. I shot in Braw 6k & 2.8k mixing 23.98, 50 and 120 fps. Lens was canon

I do not want to participate but a specific someone is playing us like a fiddle for 15 pages now. Drags people into the nonsense abyss and single handedly destroyed the P6K thread for everyone that is

The Blackmagic RAW highlight and shadow rolloff sliders affect the roll off of the "S" contrast curve you create with the custom gamma controls. If you add no contrast, they will do nothing as there's

Hi everyone, sorry if I intervene to do a little spam but I just wanted to inform those interested, that the second crowdfunding is underway to get the Magic Booster 6K.
Thanks

No wonder... It seems a cheaper one is on its way: https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/cGAKWGtUxZyXOzAKBmh6fA

Is anyone using the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II VC with their Pocket6K ?

The one I've got I've had for years and it works perfectly but I'm having a lot of trouble with it on the Pocket6K in terms of electronic focus control.

If you press the AF button it goes off for a while trying and generally failing to find a lock and after that it won't accept any more commands so you can't change the aperture or do another AF without un-mounting and re-mounting the lens.

The obvious answer is not to use the AF of course but it is prone to doing exactly the same thing with my focus controller, particularly when its being driven backwards.

It would be a pity to put have to put it on the banned list (as its a decent and very affordable stabilised standard zoom for the Pocket6K) but as it stands its going to have to be unless I can get someone to verify their copy.

As I say, I'm pretty certain there is nothing wrong with my particular copy but if there is anyone one here who has the same combo if they could just check theirs then you'd be doing me a big favour.

In a similar vein, if you have the time and could check for this on any other EF lenses you have (just press AF and see if it locks and then survives subsequent aperture changes etc) and have any similar rogue lenses then that would be a great help as well.

Thanks

I liked the shadow details a lot and it has nice dynamic range.  Definitely a fantastic image.

I would like to have seen it after processing with Sage’s Alexa LUT (when available).

So close.  Close enough?

I have a feeling there is slightly more that can be had out of the Pocket 6K sensor.

Hopefully, we shall see its limits in the coming months...

Here is a short spec ad done by Matteo Bertoli using P6K, Leica R lenses and 1/8 Pro Mist. 

And, my god, does this look fabulous! 

Looks pretty good indeed! but I still find their is too much detail/sharpness/resolution in the skin. Well its just a personal opinion and I even see this in hollywood movies, but when I see pores and the actual make up details it takes me out of it. I feel when the image is too clear, I notice these skin flaws, and usually when I watch movies these actors/actresses looked amazing in the past, like something unreachable ,you cannot achieve. And when the image is so clear, they look like Jenny from the block nextdoor, nothing special. And you would think that with all these details, they look more real, and you would feel even more emotion, but for me it is the exact opposite. I care less and less about them, not sure why though as I love underdog stories.

I see now why you're not a fan lover of MFT... LOL : ) Not surprised though once you don't care for the glass options available out there for this format ; ) MFT is the underdog format by excellence anyway ; -)

Great looking video.  The P6K is the way to go over the M4/3 P4K.

Don't look for emotion when that's not what that video is about. You can take mid range detail out when you color grade, you can't add it when it wasn't recorded.

@Snowbro

Try these colour management settings for better highlight rolloff. It works quite well on the 4k

Can I ask something? All these options are greyed out for me in the management section. What am I missing?
