With my new BMD camera, I’ve just started taking a closer look at the new software.
I think my friends at BMD forgot to tell me about all the updates, so it was a pleasant surprise to discover that they’ve updated the available WB settings. I know they were initially only planning on doing 3200K, 5600K and 6500K so it’s really awesome that they’ve decided to add some more.
Now for a RAW camera, the WB settings don’t really matter so much, but for those that are planning to shoot ProRes or DNx, it’s a great plus. It means there’s more scope to fine tune the WB point for the compressed codecs and you’ll have a little more breathing room in the grade, presuming you choose the best WB in the first place.
The camera now has 3200K, 4500K, 5000K, 5600K, 6500K and 7500K.
