The Blackmagic Pocket Camera is liberating in many ways. Even with Prores the images are stunning. Here are two videos that explore its capabilities a bit further:
My note: ETTR works better with RAW because of the extra latitude. Without precise tools to help with exposure control, it is a risky business!
New York City with Commentary
Paul Moon from Washington D.C. shared this cool video (this one has commentary but he has another version without it that went viral):
TECHNICAL NOTES: Filmed handheld on a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (bhpho.to/bmccpckt), using a single lens (Panasonic 12-35mm, continuous f2.8 aperture, optically stabilized H-HS12035 | focuspull.in/hs12035). Shooting was on September 1 and 2, 2013, with post-production on September 7 and this commentary on September 12. Edited and graded in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, with clip-by-clip balancing adjustments using Fast Color Corrector, then applying an Adjustment Layer over the entire sequence with FilmConvert Pro 2, using its Blackmagic Cinema Camera profile and selecting the classic film stock emulation of KODAK VISION3 250D Color Negative Film 5207/7207 (with vintage Super 16mm film grain to match the feel — and the actual size — of the BMPC’s digital sensor).
