Filmed in infrared with my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k and a Cokin infrared filter. I used a Nikon 50mm f1.8 and a Viltrox NF-M43X Lens Mount giving me 1 stop extra. Wide-open and at 3200 ISO I got an ‘ideal’ histogram. Less grain and a better black & white result.
Infrared (IR) light starts in the high-red area of the visible spectrum at around 750nm and goes up beyond 1000nm. This light is not visible to the naked eye. The IR cut filter on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is weak and is susceptible to some IR pollution under certain circumstances. I wondered if I could film in infrared with this camera. I used a Cokin 720-89B Infrared filter. This filter only passes light at 720nm (high-red) and above. These are my first results. I did not bother to remove the noise as this is simply a test.
In August I got a second-hand DJI Osmo Mobile 2, a gimbal for a phone.
Shot on my Pocophone F1 at 1080p 240 fps using Filmic Pro for Android and the Osmo Mobile 2.
This is a first attempt using this combination. I also bought the Log v2 option for Filmic Pro.
They claim it offers about 2 – 2.5 stops of extra dynamic range and I tend to believe them. Shooting in Log offers some extra fine-tuning when it comes to grading my footage.
