If you’re a filmmaker wanting to shoot characters at night who also are in motion, you’re going to run into changing light temperatures and light sources, and you need a camera that’s just as flexible and shoots RAW. You also need something small, that can be affordably stabilized, and will shoot great footage in low light.

In this collaboration between Blackmagic Design and No Film School, Charles Haine worked with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro on a night shoot. Charles was especially interested in working with the new higher ISO setting. That’s because 3200 ISO is useful for night shoots along with night walk and talks.

This article provides sample footage, technical setups, and more.

    Headline drew me in Larry and when I got to the article, I was disappointed as there was not much content to ingest without clicking on other links. I detest this tactic as I can’t budget my time to read it/watch it before I start it. I’m guessing there’s great stuff there, but I’ll have to find out at another time (when I’ve have time to go down the rabbit hole.)
