  • Mini 4.6k FW 4.2

    Anyone noticed improvement. If so what has improved, is it just crosshatch or other improvement such as vertical FPN?

    Is it better to let the camera powered on for awhile before performing black calibration?
    Should I set the camera at a particular ISO?

    Black balance, haven't tried yet

      Hopefully this trickles down to the other cameras

          This is great! Finally.

          Did blackshading 10min after boot-up. Does it work similar as RED?

            Detail is for when the camera is connected to an ATEM switch in a broadcast environment. It's not intended to be used for normal shooting. This is explained in the manual.

              It does not address FPD. It's main point is to address the raised blue channel that some cameras are showing. This will give you cleaner more balanced shadows. It also tries to address the cross hatching some people are getting in their cameras when the footage is not scaled.

              It's a pretty solid update and the black shading process is super quick.

                Cross hatch no longer appear on Resolve preview with 4k or 4.6k resolution.

                  I know the purpose of "Detail" option but I find it particularly useful for focusing while filming without the need of peaking.
                  Previousely crosshatching was partly blamed on the Detail being switched on. Now with the FW 4.2 which supppose to have fixed crosshatching would having Detail on reinstate crosshatching?

                    When is it recommended to do a black shade?

                      Just tested with Detail set to default. I have not seen any increase in crosshatch.

                        I'm wondering this too

                          I would Black shade if your ambient temperature changes more than 15 degrees Fahrenheit over the course of your shoot or between your current shoot and previous shoot. Up or down. I'd also let the camera warm up for at least 15-20min before blackshading.

                          I don't work for BM obviously but this seems like generally good practice.

                          I'd also do it for high speed work - 60Fps or higher... not sure if it cals all speeds with one blackshade, but generally if you are doing more than 2x standard frame rate it can't hurt (i.e. 48, 60, 120) if 24 timebase.

                            Some RED operators black shade their camera every time they turn it on.

                              At ISO 1600 perform black shading has less noticeable FPN at that setting than black shading at ISO 800 and increase to ISO 1600. Looks like this calibration might be needed everytime the ISO is changed.
