Black Magic Cinema 4K

Has their been any discussion on how good this camera is in low light? I know that the original wasn't terrible, but I was hoping this one would be better. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Chad Dyle

My understanding is that it will be not as good as the BMCC when it comes to low light shooting.

Re: Black Magic Cinema 4K

the purpose of this camera is to be used in situation where light is controlled (studio), so low light should not be a problem.

Re: Black Magic Cinema 4K

The sensor is bigger, so that would mean more light sensitivity. But it's also got more pixels, so that'd slightly decrease sensitivity. The original version had a native ISO of 400 (if I'm not mistaken) - the 4K seems to be getting ISO 640 as its native value. So all in all I suspect the 4K to be very close to the original, with the original being the 'winner'. Though I guess it's too early to tell at this stage. Wait and see, it's all we can do for now.
