Some shots of what I've been using the Pocket for the past two years.
I'm glad I found this company and I'm glad I found this site.

Really cool! There's a lot of incredible footage in here. I love the time-lapse.

Cool stuff.

Some of those tracking shots on the cyclists were pure money!

Those shots with the kid on the bike... How the hell did you pull that off. Doesn't look like golden hour but exposure is perfect. You can see all the detail even in the sky and clouds.

What aperture did you shoot at and did you used ND?

Did you shoot RAW and expose for the sky then raise the darks in post?

I think you're talking about the BMX bike shots? @ 00:12 and 2:18

It was probably around 3:00pm summer time. I did use ND and it was a variable.
We get several thunderstorms that roll through Texas during the summer. And they produce some visually striking giant tower like cloud formations. I did want to make sure the sky was exposed properly to show those off, and the overall brightness of the day allowed for the rider to be exposed enough that I only slightly had to bring his levels up.

I did shoot in Raw, and was probably around F6 or F7.
I find when I need to expose the sky I let the zebras do their thing and adjust the F stop and ND to get the shot I want.

Thanks

I just did a tracking bike shot like this over the weekend with a BMCC and an ND filter, bright sunny day. Turned out great but yours is even better. Thanks for posting!

Thanks! And Thanks for watching.
It's amazing what these "cinema" cameras are capable of.
