What Users Are Saying
Blackmagic Camera 7.7 was beta tested by users, including cinematographer Vance Burberry. He used the update extensively on live productions and found the software made images cleaner in the shadows.
“Usually I’d never try to pull up the shadows, but when I did, there was less noise and at normal exposure, the shadows stayed very clean,” Burberry said. “There is something special about the URSA Mini Pro 12K’s sensor. It has this incredible resolution but, at the same time, has a delicateness to it that really reminds me of film.”
