Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Review

blackmagic cameras canon video

A Broadcaster's Perspective

By Brian Hallett | October 14, 2013

Seven days... I had the camera for exactly seven days.  That was seven days to take the little camera through the paces and see what are the strengths, weaknesses and how it would fit in a broadcaster's tool kit.   I will say, shooting with a brand new camera is always a bit of a discovery process for any cameraman and these seven days proved to be rewarding.  To help you with your tests/discovery process with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera you'll find both color graded and ungraded videos that are downloadable.  This way you can see the footage and do your own color grade.

Split, cut, join without recompression

blackmagic cameras canon video

By Rich Young | October 14, 2013

Sometimes even crude jumpcuts are preferable than trying to gather nearly forgotten source files, or recompressing an old madly-compressed live stream archive that YouTube or Vimeo will recompress yet again. Here's a few apps that can make quick work for those looking for a low-cost way to salvage content that needs a few tweaks.

The Sound of “Gravity”

blackmagic cameras canon video

Mixing sound on Alfonso Cuaron's latest film

By Matthew Jeppsen | October 10, 2013

Here's an exceptional behind-the-scenes featurette that talks about the sound and foley work in Gravity. One interesting note...the Foley artists used transducer contact mics to create many of the sounds in the film…that is, they recorded vibration from contact, not airborne audio, which is similar to how astronauts would experience sound in space. They also talk about using Dolby Atmos to fine-tune panning and positioning of audio, and how that helped to mirror the disorientation of on-screen characters. It's a fascinating piece, watch below.

As a DP who prefers to shoot things practically, I'm frankly surprised at the need to make up some of these locations in post! I'd love to know the budgetary and scheduling limitations that pushed these filmmakers to do some of these shots with visual effects instead of live. Watch below.

UI: User interfaces in the movies and beyond

'Make It So': a noteworthy book

By Rich Young | October 03, 2013

About a year ago, interface designers Nathan Shedroff and Christopher Noessel published their book 'Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction', on how sci-fi and real world interfaces influence each other. User interfaces and human-computer interaction is a vast topic. Mostly we're interested in creating graphics that visualize what might be possible, or perhaps prototyping actual interfaces, so it's nice to peek at what others imagine and who's involved, especially if they use After Effects and Creative Cloud.
