    And here's another grab from a low light shoot though like I've said, high contrast really helps the sensor.

    Sigma 18-35 with Booster. Think I'm around a 1.8 here but I could by wide open at 1.1, not sure. It was 5 in the morning.

    Thanks for keeping an eye out. After 1-2 years of using these cameras and all the updates, I'm pretty much on cruise control with them at this point. Moire is the only thing that still kills me. Just not sure I want to sink another $500 each in these bad boys if you know what I mean.

    My desktop on my computer This is just a screen capture of 2 pngs stacked on one another. Nothing to sound the BM alarm about.

    You can see the lack of IR on the original but you did a nice job working around it Vic.

    Thanks and yep, this is that project I called you about. The director wanted to have this scene B&W and after I gave him this grade he changed his mind. I went for the DRIVE look and I love it.

    Finally got it all sorted out but damn it was a mess and of course no IR cut Even though these cameras have been out for some time, it seems 75% of the people I see use them still have no idea about the ND/IR cut situation.

    And here's a film I'm grading where they used the Pocket. Man this low light stuff looks amazing. As long as you have some high contrast in the background the sensors really pull though.

    @bscenefilms I really enjoyed this. I lost interest in the technical issues, it just worked for me. Happy New Year!

    Here's something I shot at night to try out my Canon 55/1.2 and I was quite surprised as I couldn't really use 1.2 as it was still too bright in the city, shot on BMC EF with an adapted Canon FD 55/1.2 S.S.C.
    ISO 800, f.1.8 - 2.2, a bit of NeatVideo, no Speedbooster involved:

    Even more impressive since that Tokina is an f4 (wish I still had mine) and the 24mm Rok is their softest lens by far.

    Here is a test with some lowlight, I shot 2 years ago.
    I mean, I was able to shoot under moonlight, and no noise reduction at all.

    Best day for night ever Frank! Just kidding. Damn man, why haven't I seen this stuff before. Reassuring indeed sir. Were you using Roks there?
