Fooling around with my family at home as I am recovering from the hospital. I'm ok people! I have been out of the game in bed for about a month and I have a couple of months to go to recover. More to come on this, I will be blogging about my experience, all I will say now is I have a new appreciation for how much control the mind has over the body. Choose your relationships well, it could cost you more than you think.
But with all of your support I am getting better, thank you all for the love! Thanks for your patience, here are two videos I did with my family to test out the daylight and night time capabilities of this wonderful camera! I am in love, there is so much stuff out there about it please find below some of my quick insights.
Footage test with the Black Magic Ursa Mini 4K.
Shot in 4K RAW - 4:1 - 60 FRAMES
Graded lightly with DaVinci Resolve.
Lens - Sigma 16-35mm 1.8
No lighting was used to fill.
Global Shutter (no rolling shutter). Frames melt into each other, makes the footage look very natural and smooth which results in cinematic looking footage (much better than my Sony a7 series)
Contrary to popular belief, this does not have a Low light issue, it has a daylight issue, you need a matte box with IRCUT and IR filters. All great video cameras are like this.
Stuck at native ASA ISO 400 (There are no options to change this.) You must use pro equipment to control your scenes.
Great focus peaking at ISO 400 and the huge 5-inch screen is a dream. Can't wait to get the wonderful URSA viewfinder but its so expensive! $2000 lol.
Overall, Its all about the footage and it is amazing when you control your scene. For reference, this feature film was filmed on it.
THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI (VIDEO BELOW AS WELL)
More to come, can't wait to see what we can create with our fashion / editorial films. Going to be a blast!
Keep Shooting beautiful people!

A Little About Me. #bio #nerd #aspiration
My name is Eli Samuel, my passion is to empower artists to bring a little bit more beauty into the world one image at a time. I am a little nerdy, a little crass and an endless chatterbox. Blogging is my way of giving back. I read the posts published by the photographic heroes regularly like Steve Huff, Ken Rockwell etc. I thought to myself, stop being selfish! My dream is to grace the cover of Vogue Italia. I am coming for you Vogue! Help me get there.
