    Prepping for a lowlight (candles, oil lamps and skintone) shootout between BMC and FS100.

    And yeah, I know this is cruel, but I guess a lot of you guys want to know how the BMC holds up against the official "Queen of the Night"

    My guess it the FS100 will do a little better in low light, but the BMCC footage will be able to be fixed in post more than the FS100's footage, so the BMCC will likely get a better finished result.

    After all these test and playing around with the footage, I'll have to agree. Hopefully we're right!

    Appreciate the test! A short film I'm writing right now (shoot hopefully in March) calls for many 'campfire' scenes. Curious how much artificial light I'm going to need to bring in.

    Awesome. Don't forget to use the occasional smartphone screen as a fill, too.

    I am definitely looking forward to seeing the results of this test but I am fully expecting the FS100 to crush the BMCC in lowlight performance.

    When you compare the .MTS and the .DNG files, of course there will be a lot of noise in the RAW files from the BMCC. But (!) denoising the RAW files works so much better than H264 that it could be the same outcome at ISO 800. Above, the FS100 is a killer. It gave me noisefree images at ISO 2000...
