Bridge pilot takes boat expertly under low Wroxham Bridge, Norfolk Broads with nothing to spare

Bridge pilot expertly takes a large boat under the low Wroxham Bridge on the Norflok Broads. It’s mandatory for certain size vessels to pay a fee for the Bridge Pilot to skipper the boat through the low bridge. When you see how close it can be to disaster it’s worth the current price of £15!

Filmed on Blackmagic Cinema Camera Full Frame and Sirui Venus 75mm t2.9 1.6x anamorphic lens.

Travelling the Suffolk & Norfolk Coast & Happisburgh the village falling in to the sea

Took a couple of days out travelling along the Suffolk & Norfolk coast on the east of England. Came across Happisburgh which is a delightful coastal village that is falling in to the sea. Coastal erosion is slowly consuming this charming village and no more is being done to prevent it.

Filmed with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K Full Frame and the Sirui 75mm Venus f2.9 1.6x anamorphic lens.

36 clips I’ve shot with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 in the past few weeks. May 2024.

May 2024. 36 clips I’ve shot with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 in the past few weeks. BMPCC 6K G2.

Using a variety of lenses.

Davinci Resolve Magic Mask Test – BMPCC 6K G2

First time testing the “Magic Mask” facility within Davinci Resolve. I didn’t spend long adjusting the settings and also didn’t spend much time drawing the mask outline. I drew roughly around the inside of the lizard and then inverted the mask. The result is not perfect but considering the lack of care and time put in to this I’m suitably impressed. Probably with a bit more care and attention to the settings this may have been a perfect result but with the noise present in the shot at ISO1250 on the BMPCC 6K G2 it may cause glitches in the ability for the mask to define the edge exactly. The mixed indoor lighting and the reflections in the glass may also prove a hindrance to the masks ability to attain perfection.

Shot with the BMPCC 6K G2, Canon 100-400 USM IS L MKII, through glass at a distance form the subject of approx 2.5 metres. The subject was a Fiji Banded Iguana which was about max 30cm long from nose to tail tip.

Sirui Venus 75mm T2.9 1.6x Anamorphic sample video. L mount BMCC6K full frame.

First test shots with the Sirui 75mm T2.9 1.6x anamophic lens. Shot on the Blackmagic cinema camera 6K full frame (BMCC6K FF).

A very sharp lens with beautiful rendering.

Chillin’ with the Chimps – Tombe & Talia at Colchester Zoo.

These magnificent chimpanzees were spending some time chilling out at Colchester Zoo in Essex. The boss chimp, Tombe, was fascinated with the camera, and Talia a younger female came to inspect all the gear before settling down and posing for me. A rare moment for us as they are normally very active and hard to shoot.

Shot with the Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 6K G2 (BMPCC6K G2) & Legacy Tamron 90mm macro lens (72b), on a tripod. Lighting conditions were tricky and the chosen ISO was 1250. The camera coped well with the dynamic range and after a bit of noise reduction the results are pleasing. Shooting through glass does take the edge off slightly but the footage is still pleasantly sharp.

Gone Fishing. Test shots – Blackmagic BMPCC 6K G2 & CANON EF 100-400MM F/4.5-5.6L IS II USM.

First test clips using the CANON EF 100-400MM F/4.5-5.6L IS II USM with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2.

Shot on the waters of Hanningfield Reservoir in Essex.

Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 6K G2. Video samples from Tollesbury using a legacy Tamron 90mm f2.8

Shot some video samples with BMPCC 6K G2 and the Tamron Adaptall II 90mm f2.8 Macro lens (72b) at Tollesbury which is on the mouth of the river Blackwater in Essex.

The Tamron is another truly great legacy lens.

Review & samples: Legacy Olympus 50mm f3.5 Macro lens with Blackmagic Pocket 6K. Travel video setup.

I’ve just put together my latest travel setup for video capture with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2. The aim was to get the BMPCC 6K G2 in to a reasonably sized camera bag along with other lenses and accessories. This is the result.

The Olympus Zuiko 50mm Macro f3.5 lens is surprisingly sharp for general video and has the benefit of close focus for 0.5x magnification. Optically, one of the best legacy lenses I have ever tested and better than some of my modern lenses. A truly tiny powerhouse of a lens with the bonus of it exhibiting practically zero chromatic aberration (on APSC sensor).

A brief review and a large selection of samples taken on a tripod, with clips that are long enough to study.

Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K Full Frame. Exposure, ISO & Noise

Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K Full Frame. Perhaps some interesting observations with regards to how ISO and exposure affect noise on the BMCC 6K FF.
