First in Perth to shoot TVC on new Black Magic Camera.
Last week I had the opportunity to shoot with the new “Black Magic 2.5K (Raw) camera. The camera itself definitely has some draw backs, but for $3000 you cant really complain. We didn’t use the full 2.5K raw files instead we shot Pro Res HQ 4.2.2 which was more then enough. With no budget for a gaffer all the exteriors were shot oysters, and one light used for the interiors. You cant white balance the camera, just selected increments from 3200 – 7500. I used my Canon EF series lenses. Its a small sensor so we used a Tonika 10-11mm (which was about 25mm on a 7D at the wide end). All in all not a bad result. (see behind the scene shots below.)
