Philip Bloom’s Black Magic Camera Review: Part Two.

Back in September of last year, Philip Bloom reviewed the Black Magic Cinema Camera with the EF lens mount. While he was impressed with image quality, he rightfully pointed out a number of flaws that the version one camera has. Last week he posted an update on Vimeo featuring the Black Magic with the micro 4/3 mount. As he points out the camera still has flaws, but the new lens mount makes a huge difference because now the crop takes full advantage of the complete lens, not just the centered weighted portion of the glass.  I’m still interested in this camera, and I can’t wait to see where Black Magic takes it in the future.

Ponte Tower, by Philip Bloom

Philip Bloom has released a new short documentary on Vimeo. The film focuses on Ponte Tower in Johannesburg, South Africa, and captures the feeling of the haunting structure, with beautiful cinematography and editing. The film was shot on the new Black Magic cinema camera with time lapse sequences being shot on a Canon 5D Mk II.
