Simple natural light portrait, but can you guess the camera?

For my thousandth post! - the camera was the Blackmagic Cinema Camera (link (external link)). 12 bit uncompressed RAW, 13 stops of dynamic range, and a ~3.3MP sensor (2432 x 1366px).

I know 3.3MP doesn't seem like a lot, but I can tell you right now I can print a solid 12x18. This is a video camera that costs less than a 5DIII.

So when I got my hands on the camera I wanted to know if I could finally use a motion camera to capture natural light portraits. I put the shutter to ~1/200 equivalent and just let the camera roll. It's amazing. No moments missed. No expressions escaped. I'm shooting stills - literally still DNG files - at 30 frames per second - 2x as fast as a 1DX for less than half the price.

Obviously there are issues and some of the comparisons I've made are only superficially fair, but I think this camera represents the future. Hold on to your butts.

For a look at one of my motion projects on the camera, hop on over to vimeo:

Just a WAG, 10D? Judging by the noise.

Nope. Although to be fair, I added a little bit of grain as part of my edit. The original file is pretty clean (it was 800 iso).

Think a little bigger.

Or substantially bigger, depending on your perspective of size.

So you enjoy spray and pray? I would much rather look through 30 frames of a portrait rather than 30 frames per second for even just 10 seconds, which would be 300!

It's not really spray and pray. My normal portrait shooting style is actually the farthest thing from it anyway. I'm talking about an allowance for subject spontaneity far beyond what photographers are used to.

That is cool in concept but I agree it would be kind of a pain going through that many images. If you ended up with just ~10 minutes of "shooting", that's 18,000 frames.

Thanks guys. I am dying to shoot a wedding film with this thing and see if I can pull out solid printable stills of the best moments. Actually I know I can do it, I just want to do it now haha. Doing wedding cinematography we are always fighting photographers for budget; we're getting very close to being able to do both. Heresy, I know. But I think that's the future.

Anyway. I just did a blog post today detailing how I approached shooting video in the same way I would shoot still portraits: http://www.emptybucket​studios.com/color-grading-with-raw-video/ (external link)
