We Tested The BMPCC6K At Burning Man and It Was (Low) Lit
We took Blackmagic's latest into the field to capture some unique images. Here are the results.
When it comes to putting the BMPCC6K through its paces, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better, or at the very least, more exciting place to do it than at Burning Man in the Black Rock Desert.
We were able to capture some beautiful, rich images with the BMPCC6K throughout the day and during Golden Hour, grabbing some quick shots of Chandler Lovelle for example. But once the sun had set, we were able to take the camera for a real spin.
Being out in the desert at nightfall allowed us to examine the low-light capabilities of this shooter, and with all of the kaleidoscopic lights, lasers, and burning effigies in the background, dynamic range was an entertaining test to perform.
The footage was edited and graded in Davinci Resolve.
