Hiking in the Alps – Shot on BMPCC4K

Last week my wife and I went to the Alps and I decided to bring the BMPCC4K with me. On the second day we did one of the most exhausting and beautiful hike I’ve ever done. We went up to Rifugio Garibaldi. The total time going up and down was about 7h. This is my 3rd time doing that hike and every time I forget about how long it is! Of course I didn’t have a full rig, but just the camera, cage, handle, Power Junkie by Blindspot with 2 NP-F970 batteries (and dummy battery) and a Canon FD 24mm f/2.8. I didn’t even bring the monitor and I completely forgot my Tiffen Variable ND. Everything fit perfectly in my backpack, which wasn’t too heavy. All the wide shots were filmed during that hike, while the long shots of the mountains were filmed on a separate day with the camera full rigged, on the tripod and with my Canon FD 70-210. The PJ by Blindspot is actually a very smart solution and I was able to shoot pretty much 7h with only 2 batteries. Definitely a smart solution if you wanna keep your camera lightweight.

As far as exposure goes I mainly exposed by eye, but always checking my false colors to be sure I wasn’t overexposing. Keeping everything in the pink/green is good and if you have to underexpose a bit, that’s ok. With digital cameras is way easier to recover shadows than highlights, that’s why I don’t recommend ETTR. A video about exposure will definitely come out at some point in September. I’ve been traveling since July 27th and I’ll be back in California on September 18th, so I’ll do my best. Everything was shot at ISO 400.

As far as color goes I used the BUTTERY Natural Rec709 and then I played around with contrast, WB and tint. Everything was edited and graded in DaVinci Resolve 16.
