Gear used:

Settings for Exposure

Dynamic Range (Gamma): Film

LUT for monitoring: Extended Video

White Balance: 4000K

Codec: Blackmagic RAW Constant Bitrate 3:1, recorded to a Samsung T5 SSD (Amazon, B&H) .

Resolution: 4K DCI (4096 x 2160) at 25 fps. For looks 3 and 4 I shot in 60 fps. Note: If I had shot this with the Pocket 6K, I’d have used 6K full frame at 25 fps. Nothing else would change.

ISO: Typically between 100 to 250. Went up to 500-800 for looks 3 and 4.

Aperture: Lenses were typically from f/1.4 to f/2.8

Color Grading

I used DaVinci Resolve Studio 15.3 for color grading Blackmagic RAW. Note: For the Pocket 6K, you need DaVinci Resolve 16 or higher.

For looks 2 and 4 I used Wolfcrow Film LUTs.

For looks 1 and 3 I used stock LUTs as shown in the video.

With Blackmagic RAW, you can manipulate white balance, ISO, exposure and color spaces in DaVinci Resolve. You can find these under Camera RAW.

That’s it! Let me know if you have any questions.
