This is the best tutorial on exposure I’ve seen yet. I meant to post it sooner.



Unprecedented, you can download all the recent camera files and play with them yourself.

Blackmagic PCC4K Demos


Cinematographer John Brawley, who now works for Blackmagic, said this:

RE:  Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f4.0 PRO Lens,
That lens is a must have for the camera in my view. The IS (image stabilization) works really well, and the slower speed doesn’t matter so much when the sensor can pick up the slack (dual native ISO: 3200). I think they’re a great combo. I shot some other personal stuff with the 12-100 Olympus and I was so impressed by it.




Lens is $1300 and weighs 1 1/4 pounds.





$1295, September, needs expensive CFAST cards or external USB-C drive (cheaper?), new low-light capability.


Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K



Why I love that little BMPCC

  • 13 stops (+) of dynamic range
  • RAW uncompressed data
  • Teeny tiny




Note: The original 2.5K BMCC was not included in this test.  It’s still a top performer with 13 stops DR just like the Pocket cam, although with rolling shutter and moire issues similar to the pocket test above (same sensor, more resolution).  These are difficult decisions, and the cost of all of these has come down radically.  Many more movies are on the way.



This is very usable and should ship within days.

Things to remember about the pocket version:

  • Less Resolution (1920×1080 max.) than BMCC RAW
  • Has an active m4/3 mount, for lens stabilization, auto-focus
  • One third the price
  • Easy Stealth
  • Same sensor with 13+ stops of DR
