    Camera Test Movie I presented by MasterPlan Productions. Filmed, edited, mixed and graded by Tomas Stacewicz. Published on 25 November 2016.

    A Dogme 95 style experimental test film shot on CinemaDNG RAW with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and the Zenit-LOMO Meteor 5-1 f/1.9 17-69 mm lens, using the RafCamera M42x1-MTF lens adapter. All shots were filmed handheld using a pistol grip and shoulder brace stock taken from the Zenit Krasnogorsk-3 camera kit, the exception being the timelapse shot which was shot using a tripod. Filmed on location in Kungsladugård and Slottsskogen, Göteborg, Sweden.

    General camera settings: ISO 800, Shutter Angle 180º and 24 fps. Night shot camera settings: White Balance 3200K and f/1.9. Day shot camera settings: White Balance 6500K, f/1.9-7 and ND x4 filter. Timelapse camera settings: 10 seconds timelapse, White Balance 3000K (Color Temp raised to 3500K in post), Focal Lenght F=25, f/1.9-22 (continuously stepped down during timelapse; Exposure -3 and Highlights -100 in post) and ND x4 filter. General audio settings: All sound were recorded on the inboard stereo microphone of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, with microphone and channel (line) levels set to 50%.

    Edited, graded, stabilized and rendered on Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve 12.5.2. Colour correction was made manually using the Blackmagic Cinema Camera Film to Rec. 709 v2 LUT as a reference, raising Saturation to 100 and keeping Hue at level 50, adjusting the final grading with the aid of color wheels to create a balanced RGB profile. Vignetting was adjusted with a 16% maximum Zooming. Rendered to QuickTime containing the DNxHR SQ video compression codec and two cannel PCM audio codec. Enhancements was made on YouTube by raising Saturation +1 and Contrast 0; this level was chosen as a average to accomodate for computers and monitors that desaturates and flattens the original image quality, as well as not exaggerating saturation and contrast on well calibrated monitors.

    I lowered the contrast setting on YouTube down to 0; now you are better able to see the good handling of night scenes on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera :-)

    Here are some screen shots that I captured from Resolve in the RAW format, with some examples of shallow depth of field, bokeh, noise and flare:

    Guided by suggestions made by other forum members, I finally uploaded the Test Movie using the DNxHR HQ compression codec wrapped in QuickTime and Ultra HD 4K 3840×2160 resolution. Now finally YouTube does justice to the native CinemaDNG RAW 1080p footage coming from the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and the LOMO Meteor 5-1 lens!

    Here is my latest cut of my first ever footage shot with the BMPCC. I made another shot at stabilizing the footage using both the new and classic Stabilizer of DaVinci Resolve 14, as well as cutting out parts that I couldn't manage to stabilize good enough.
