Black Magic Cinema Camera LUTs

Hi all,

Below are samples of grades made with the LUT that I made for the Black Magic Cinema Camera and BMCC Pocket edition. The LUT is for use with Davinci Resolve. I created a LUT-family with different ‘flavors’ of color saturation. Saturation is not increased with the default saturation tool, but controlled per channel to prevent the image from looking over-saturated. Resulting in a richness of the colors that are already present in ProRes and raw dng (without changing them).

The Tone Mapping curve resembles the curve of the Arri Alexa for smooth roll-off into shadows and highlights.

[UPDATE: free download link removed. Please donate for high quality LUTs for BMCC and BMPCC]

To verify that the LUT is to your liking you can send an e-mail with one .dng file attached (taken with BMCC or BMPCC). Your image will be graded with the LUT and you’ll receive a .jpg file back. Send to: hanshij@xs4all.nl

If you find this LUT useful and would like to donate $10 USD, I will send you the complete LUT-family of variants with increasing richness of color (different than adding default saturation).

[UPDATE: improved version 3 of the LUT, delivered after donation]
