Blackmagic Camera sample footage

Here we have some clips which we have filmed with the Blackmagic cameras. Feel free to download and test it with your own systems. Please do not use it in your own productions or provide it for download yourself.

These shots will not be showing the Blackmagic camera at its best as we are only using regular lenses and have a limited amount of time to film. They are presented exactly as they came off the camera, completely with any bad camera movements and comments that may have been recorded during filming.  They have not been graded or tweaked in any way and will look a lot better if this is done. 

The main purpose of this footage is to allow you to see some results from the camera and to see how well it works in your own computer.


This clips were filmed using the Blackmagic Production 4K camera on its very first release.  The lens is a fairly standard Canon 1.8 50mm lens.  We simply set up the tripod, pointed, focused and filmed.  The shots are in Quicktime 4K resolution.

To download the clips we suggest you right click and choose "save target as..." otherwise the clips will try and load into your web browsers player and will probably fail, or load up so large that you cannot see it properly.

This shot was taken on Brighton beach just before the rain started coming down, on a dull and overcast day. You can see an incredible amount of detail in the image such as the cars passing on top of the distant hill.- approx 2GB

A small clip, only 18 frames, although good enough to see the sharpness of a night shot and not too large to download - approx 70MB

Brighton Pier Video settinghttp://www.dvc.uk.com/downloads/bm4k/pier_with_white_shed_01_video.mov

(For best results right click on the link above and choose "save target as...")

A shot of Brighton pier with the luminance range set to "video". This shot was taken at exactly the same time as the one above which has the luminance range set to "film". Film gives you "flatter" images but also should give you a greater range when you come to come to grading your project.

The difference between "film" and "video" settings is not as great when using Quicktime files as it is when using DNG files.  On its first release the Blackmagic camera does not support DNG files.

Brighton Pier HD http://www.dvc.uk.com/downloads/bm4k/brighton_pierHD.mov

(For best results right click on the link above and choose "save target as...")

The same shot as above but with the camera set to HD instead of 4K, so you may get an idea of the difference in resolution between 4K and HD.  Please note that these are two different shots taken directly from the camera;  we have not converted the 4K shot in any software.  The Blackmagic camera can film both HD and 4K pictures in QuickTime format.

Size: approx 396MB
