AbelCine video demonstration of infared IR cut filters for use with BMCC and other digital cinema cameras. IR cut (or combination IR cut/ND) filters are recommended to prevent “IR pollution” which may occur depending on lighting conditions & exposure settings, and especially when using ND filters stronger than approx. .9 ND.
AbelCine “FOV Comparator” page allows you to compare field of view (crop factor) at various lens focal lengths among various sensor sizes. Refer also to this sensor size comparison diagram on ProLost.com.
