Blackmagic Design just released firmware version 1.5 for the pocket camera, (download here) which allows you to shoot Cinema DNG raw. I have uploaded some RAW files so you can download them and play around with them.
This update makes this tiny and inexpensive camera a great option for budget filmmakers who want to take their productions to the next level, since 12bit RAW, 13 stop dynamic range footage is unheard of at this price point.
Of course, the camera still has its bugs and quirks (audio meters anyone?), but no camera is perfect and until they fix them, we just have to work around these “issues”
Please note that if you try to use “Preview” to see these files on a Mac, it won’t work, it will look like this:
You either have to use Resolve, or Adobe products that support Adobe Camera Raw (After effects, photoshop…)
