Here is a mélange of clips taken during my first week with the BMCC. This is not a "piece" - no audio, no color correction (or careful white balancing!), nothing approaching creative editing; just some of the first images to hit my sensor. I didn't want to put it out on Vimeo; it's more of something to share with this community that's put up with me for nine months. We will each have our first post with the grail; some pedestrian, some sublime... this, for better or worse, is mine.

All shot in Rhode Island over the past week. If you don't like New England weather, wait a minute. RAW, exposure corrected in Resolve, edited in FCP

Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 ZE
Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye
Nikon 20mm f/2.8 AIS

You got some really great shots in there. Not a fan of the 8mm fisheye though. Loved the snow street scene with the car driving off.

Agreed. I also quite liked the wide of the monument. Thanks for sharing. I hope to have something to contribute in a couple of weeks.

Nice shots. I take it the really wide are the 8mm, any way to straighten it out a bit or is there to much curve? I've been looking at that lens cuz the price is right.
Just was looking at this: http://www.fcpeffects.com/collections/new-stuff/products/fisheye-removal-plugin

I feel the same. The fisheye works when you want distortion for effect such as in the bamboo forest where the bending bamboo looks a bit scary. But with a building and columns, not a lens I would recommend. Liked the rest of course.

That's one reason I'm disappointed that the Samyang/Rokinon 10mm rectilinear lens has been postponed until much later this year... it would deliver a lot of the wide without the distortion.

Why not have a try at the Sigma 8-16mm?

people continue to overlook the Sigma 8-16 even though some have done some great footage sing it like the big sur clip.

This piece Andrew shot was on the 8-16. A very fine look.

The only reason NOT to use the Sigma is if you wanted a faster aperture.

With the metabones adapter, you could convert a 14mm f/2.8 to a 10mm f/2, which is nice.

I'm also waiting for the Samyang 10mm f/2.8. Come on guys!

I'm sure that will be a good lens when it arrives. I'm waiting on SLR Magic lenses introduced at NAB 2012 but hopefully they'll arrive about NAB 2013 with the BMCC MFT. Someday reality will catch up with the fantasy.
