Here are five back to back Blackmagic Pocket Camera tests for your viewing pleasure.
Hot pixels at low ISO?
I just got my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera a few days ago and noticed something bothersome when grading the footage. The number of hot pixels seems to be quite high. They are not very visible at all in the straight LOG ProRes files. But as soon as I crush the blacks and raise the mids a bit they start popping out of the darkness.
