    I recently got a Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4k to go along with my Gemini and UMP, as was wondering if anyone was interested in seeing how well the files grade? If so, please make your requests for types of shots you're interested in grading and what flavor of codec you prefer. Then I'll make a dropbox link!

    Thanks!

    Sure, I'd only be interested in raw or braw, personally.

    Main request: Skin tones at varying fill ratios if possible. Flat (1:1), 1 stop under (2:1), 2 stops under (4:1), 3 stops under (8:1), 4 stops under (16:1).

    Other goodies:
    Golden hour/sunset/sun in the shot, etc or other clipped highlights.
    Blue hour (just after sunset).
    Landscape - natural greens/blue sky, etc.
    3200 ISO nicely lit stuff with good CRI, 3200 ISO poorly lit with bad CRI stuff (night exteriors probably)

    Oh and cats. Can't be a camera test without cats. ;)

    some good tests online vs the alexa, basically shows how the color hue holds in over and under exposure on the Alexa but not on the BM, that and dynamic range...

    but seems like an awesome little cam!
