  • A Cam/B Cam: BMCC/BMPCC or BMCC/6D

    Hello, everyone. My name is John and I'm new here. :-)

    I did a quick search in the forums and couldn't find an opinion or examples of footage cut between BMCC and the BMPCC or BMCC and a 6D. My old set up was a Canon 5D mk II and Canon 6D. The new setup (for now) is the BMCC and Canon 6D. Anyone been in a similar situation and decided to get the BMPCC as well?

    Any links of the above setups or opinions would be appreciated.

    I did a short film where 80% was shot on a 5d Mkii and 20% on a BMCC in Raw mode.


    https://vimeo.com/64307505


    0:00-3:00 = 5d Mkii
    3:00-3:30 = BMCC
    3:30-4:30 = 5d Mkii
    4:30-7:10 = BMCC
    7:10-10:30= 5d Mkii


    The filming day for the BMCC was literally the day after the camera arrived, so I had little practice with it - subsequently I am able to get much better looking images from the camera which display a greater difference between it and the 5d Mkii.

      Thanks Tom, looks fabulous. Having worked with the camera a lot more (I checked out a number of your BMCC tests, btw, looks great as well), do you find yourself wanting to not use the 5D because it's harder to grade?

        The only time I have used my 5D since getting the BMCC is to film the BMCC itself haha. The difference in image quality and flexibility is night and day.

          Welcome John!

          I have been using my 7D as my B-Cam for my BMCC.. and I really hate doing it. Matching color has been a nightmare. Thankfully I just got my BMPC, and am getting rid of my 7D.

            If at all possible stretch for a second BMC, being able to share media and accessories will almost certainly make it a cheaper option than outfitting a Pocket Cam.

              Thanks Michael and Grug.

              I had access to a 7D for a while, so I totally understand not wanting to use it with a BMCC or even a 5D. I found that the high ISO just didn't compare, and obviously the DOF didn't match as well. I've used it as a second camera when I had to, but would rather have matching cameras if I could. I find that that the 6D handles skin tones better than the 5D mk II. That, and the acceptable ISO levels are close to the 5D mk III.

              I will consider the second BMCC instead of a BMPCC. The way prices are going, it looks like it's almost the same price. ;-) More media and battery solutions, but otherwise pretty close right now.
