13 Stops of Dynamic Range
The dynamic range for a traditional film look!
What makes film look like film? Frame rate, depth of field, noise and other factors are all part of the answer, however all cinematographers agree that Dynamic Range is the major reason. Video cameras are not able to handle light in the same way as film and their narrower dynamic range causes highlights to ‘blow out’ and shadows to appear ‘crushed’. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera’s image sensor captures 13 stops of wide dynamic range, so you retain much more detail and get images that emulate film.
