      I rebooted and all is well now!

      The part with the guy wearing white shirt and the black vest is fantastic. My BMPC could never have pulled that off.

      This is looking very promising. Can't wait to see some less compressed footage.

        And thank goodness that we may not need IR filtration!

          Before I have chance to write anything more substantial, let me just say that I would echo Romans thoughts here. It's a real spiritual successor to the bmcc.

          It's funny how when trying to fit all the range into an end image, you often end up pushing it close to clipping anyway.

          One of the things I am most excited about is the new film profile. It makes getting good and accurate images only couple of clicks away. Seriously, add a bit of contrast and you're there.

          I love grading Alexa stuff, partly because of the image but mostly because of how their log image is to work with - I would go so far to say that the new film image is actually better to grade with than the Alexa's log image.

          All this translates to faster resolve exports too- as you find yourself with half as many nodes.

              My original 4.6K footage has Hollywood Blackmagic on every shot. Just preference.

              We're still finalizing the colour science as Roman mentioned, so no camera original footage or grabs until that's done sorry.

                Thanks for sharing this. I watched the video before reading your post. I was most impressed with how good the handheld footage looked then I read that Global Shutter was not enabled. That made it even more impressive. The rolling shutter seems to be really well controlled.

                Exciting times. :-)

                  would you say it's closer to the mini 4k or to the bmcc though? someone summed it up nicely as "modern vs old". From CaptainHook's way earlier test the mini4k is similar to that one vs the BMCC.

                    I didn't want to upload to Youtube, but my 5GB limit on Vimeo has been reached, not that it's all that much better though :/

                      Also, 800 is the nativa ASA - and so exposing for this gives you the best range - but this time, its even cleaner - less visible noise - so you have less of an excuse to ettr. Spent Sunday shooting justnat 800 and exposing for it (no ETTR or ETTL) and it really shined. I refused to protect the highlights from clipping and it actually rarely happend (filming mid day in the UK winter) and when it did clip - it felt very natural.

                        In image, the bmcc - ergonomics mini4k (as they share the same body).

                        Think of it as a much higher resolution, higher DR BMCC with much less Rolling shutter skewing. It's still there, but nowhere near as noticeable.

                        In fact, I bet most people will shoot in RS mode unless something on screen demands A GS such as propellers or fast cars driving past.

                        Also the motion cadence is probably in Bolex territory - still evaluating this aspect though.

                            Interesting. To me the mini 4k is similar to the 4.6k in color vs the original bmcc. Though CaptainHook did have HBM on as he said which could be it.

                              what strength did you use on that 4.6k?

                                Wow that is impressive. I still might hold on for the 4.6.
