You’ve waited. And waited. And waited some more. And now Blackmagic delivers.
Yesterday, Blackmagic sent out the new firmware version 1.5 for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera to unlocking recording in 12 bit Raw. Link to the support page at the bottom of this post.
This is exciting for a number of reasons, the main one being we can now use this camera to its full potential.
I received my camera on Oct 1 and instantly fell in love with it. I’ve got it working well with my current EF and MD mount lenses via lens adapters I bought on Amazon.
If you haven’t already seen the short I shot in Banff the week I got the camera, check it out here.
I’m simply blown away by the quality of this little camera in terms of the dynamic range, colour, and overall sharpness.
It does have its obvious draw backs but there is always comprise when it comes to cost vs what you get. And what you get here is nothing short of amazing considering a few years ago a camera of this quality was unattainable for so many.
I will add some RAW frames as I shoot them.
A new attraction in downtown Calgary. Kind odd the first time you see it. It’s pretty neat to look at it from every different angle.
Castle Mountain is one of the more distinct looking mountains along the Trans Canada as you head towards Lake Louise from Banff. It stands out from neighbouring mountains with its unique shape and colour. Castle Mountain has been photographed many times over the years, so here’s a different look at this neat looking mountain!
I took a trip out to Banff National Park this weekend. I noticed my annual pass expires at the end of this month so I wanted to get one more trip in! The weather was absolutely beautiful. That allowed me to snap this wonderful photo of Rundle Mountain, just outside of the Banff townsite.
