Black Magic

Will the black magic cinema camera work good at night?

I'm working on a low budget independent horror movie and would like to find out if the black magic cinema camera will do the job when it comes to shooting in low light environments. Any feedback from some professionals out there in the movie business would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Jim is half right here. The BMCC has a native ISO of 800 and looks pretty good even at 3200 - which is pretty much shooting in the dark. You always need some light to see by - in a night scene it could be the moon, a lamp, a candle etc - it's a question of the brightness of the source, the speed of the lens and the tradeoff of high ISO with noise. I've shot candlelit scenes on a DSLR at ISO 800, using the light just to pick out features etc and it looked great, especially with a bit of colour work in post.

In short, with today's sensors shooting in near dark is a lot better than the bad old days with slow film stocks. You always need SOME light, but you can get away with practical sources like lamps or a big diffuse glow to simulate the moon without having to make them horrendously bright. Day for night is still an option but has never looked great. Better to shoot in the dark with cunning use of motivated light.

Finally, ignore the reference to the hollywood way of doing things. You said low budget independent horror right? Since when have such films played by the rules...
