Here’s a few frame grabs from a short film I recently shot.

shot with the Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6k camera and a set of Rokinon cinema prime lenses (24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm) as well as a couple of Canon lenses (100mm macro and 24mm pancake)
 
For the most part I was pleased with how the camera and lens package performed.
The one big issue we ran into early was, in low light situations (which the majority of the film takes place) the Ursa Mini had noticeable FPN at both ISO 800 and 1600.
In order to combat this I was forced to shoot a lot of the film with ISO 400 to drop the noise floor which meant I needed more lights to be able to get a proper exposure.
As a team we had to work creatively to come up with solutions but I think in the end we were pretty pleased with the final images.
 
Cheers!
Ian

Looks great mate. You ever work up in Portland or mostly in Eugene?

Thanks Guys!

 
Yes Brenton, I do get up to PDX occasionally. I’m originally from there.
The Ad agency and Production company I work for has clients up in that part of the state so we do go up there and shoot on occasion.
 
Pendulum was shot in both Portland and in Eugene.
