Phillip Bloom posted Part 1 and Part 2 of the Blackmagic Pocket Camera review (Click here). Final Conclusion will be posted by Philip soon! By the way Philip, if you read this next time call me when you are in Venice. I am very close to you now
And what about the Blooming Issue? At Blackmagic Forum there is an official BM statement:
As promised, here’s an update on the ‘blooming’ sensor topic.
All sensors, be it CCD or CMOS, will have a ‘blooming’ effect when during severe overexposure, the pixel is over saturated and excessive charges overflow to neighbouring pixels. It just looks different depending on the sensor type.
We are not seeing this on some of our test cameras so it might be something that is calibration related. Please contact your nearest support office and we’ll run another calibration on the camera.
That’s great news! P.S.: Link found via Slashcam.de (Thanks!).
