Amazing New Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Footage

Another sign that the camera is about to ship.  Shot in lovely Auckland, New Zealand by Captain Hook and his partner at  "A Couple of Night Owls".  Shot at 220mbps in ProRes422.  Sadly, no CinemaDNG RAW examples yet.

Still, the dynamic range is awesome - and it still floors me that a camera this size can record and process this much data in real time.

For those of you who have pre-ordered this camera, I recommend you read Hook's notes on the shoot and then wade through the comments section for lots of great technical information on your new camera. 

I learned from the comments, for example, the Pocket Cinema Camera has no ability to delete clips in camera.  No big deal, but it's nice to know.

Hook also details the reasoning behind his choice of ISO settings and a few other tips that make reading through the comments worthwhile - so please head over to Vimeo and take a look.

For those of you who haven't yet pre-ordered this $995 "wonder camera", please get in line at Adorama by using this link.  It costs the same as going directly to Adorama, you'll be supporting the blog, and they won't charge your card until it ships - which should be 'real soon now'.
