    To be fair, BMD's first camera was *ancient* history!

    Exactly the same could be said about the RED ONE: "a lesson on what not to do".

    Actually.

    I lied. Turns out you can zoom on an external monitor. New feature :-)

    Not many people realise but there’s a SECOND SET 12k BRAW clips on the below page and they have supersaturated LED lights in them. About half way down the page...

    Nice! So does the external output follow the zoom and panning on the main display?

    I haven't actually tried it I just got told about it. I never knew it was in the menu :-)

    I believe you can maybe stear it using the knob on the side. Again, second hand information as I don't have a way of checking here right now... I'll have to get back to you and confirm...

    Not everything that happens at raw2rec709 conversion happens at raw2HDR conversion, letting go the out of gamut colors being one of the things. You guys are aware of that?
    Want the highlights, the juicy tail lights? At 100 nits? Expose properly for them, pretty please. :)

    It’s amazing to witness this level of technology in the hands of cinematographers. It’s very similar to music production now and how you can create Grammy winning albums on your laptop, tablet, even phone!

    With forward thinking companies like RED when they released their first cinema camera, which was relatively affordable at the time and Blackmagic with this innovative paradigm of collecting light, plus having it super affordable, ambitious visual creatives can embark on the next classic narrative or award winning documentary.

    I am pretty eager to see what is coming next from both companies.

    I am somewhat ignorant about colour spaces. But, if the data were captured properly, it could be brought into line with basic curve adjustments. One could fix the light source problem, I assume, by massively underexposing while shooting RAW. But you do need RAW, or close to it.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.
