BlackMagic Cameras Exposure Tests- CFS
A short video from the Fall 2013 student’s exposure test using the BlackMagic 2.5k and Pocket Camera.
The executive summary is, expose gray at 35%, dial it to flavor in Resolve. Watch latitude when using pro-res, paste hits hard and early when using 422 film mode.
The CinemaDNG did prove to hold detail at the 5th and 6th stop above gray, however, sticking to the old 3.5 stops of latitude rule, like film, to deliver consistent results.
