Re: Blackmagic Design 12K camera
Brand new sensor, 3 years in the making.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Native 800 iso.
14 stops (that’s probably a bit conservative, they haven’t been able to properly check it because the models are based on Bayer sensors...:-)
It’s not Bayer, but it has a very small pixel pitch of 2.2 microns. (Alexa is 8)
Instead of Bayer 2x2 grid of GRBG it has a 6x6 grid. 6G, 6B and 6R plus 18 W pixels.
The W are clear or “white” pixels. This overcomes the reduced sensitivity issue of a 2.2 micron pitch.
Combined with their codec that is profiled to the sensor, it enables other modes of operation. This what get’s you 12k, 8K 4K RAW without changing field of view. There’s also a 6K super 16 mode.
Mostly I’m excited by the colour and look.
Here’s a day of shooting from an early not final hardware build of the camera. Edited on my 2017 MacBook Pro using a low-fi Drobo as a raid.
