Around the web and on Blackmagic Design’s own forums, the few lucky early people who preordered the Blackmagic Pocket cinema camera have been reporting a strange problem with blown out footage. Apparently, instead of softly blowing out footage the pocket camera produces a milky white, almost liquid looking blooming effect around bright lights. A footage test of illustrating the problem is below. If the problem is real as it appears to be, the next question is whether this is a hardware or software issue. If it’s a software issue, we may have a bigger problem that just the late shipping issues to deal with.
