    I was testing my new OLPF from Rawlite regarding sharpness and how effective the IR cut was, and to my surprise, my bokeh and the way the camera renders the "in focus" and "out of focus" areas is quite different. But for the better! At least to my eyes. It looks much more organic. I shot these with my Tokina 28-70, so expect a bit of vintage vibe, but the falloff just looks better and more artistic.

    Was this on the original pocket, UMP or have they made one for the new pocket 4k?

    Neither. This was on my Ursa Mini 4.6k. They just released their OLPF for the original UM 4.6k.

    Anyone else has this OLPF for the original UM 4.6k? I believe this should work on the 4k as well.

    I've been waiting for the OLPF for the original ursa mini 4.6k, where did you get one from?

    Also, if you can please upload some dngs! Those look beautiful.

    I got one from Rawlite. They were working on the olpf for the original UM cameras for a while and finally finished. I'm guessing the filter is very similar to the UMpro but with different housing to fit.

    Sure, here are two DNGs:

    And a few more jpegs with very simple grading. What I notice the most is the way the image is sharp in the focus area but the fall off is not that typical digital sharpness that we're used to. I have to try this with a sharper lens such as the Sigma 18-35 and see how it performs.

    Looks very nice David! Was the conversion easy? How do you order one? They only have the OLPF for the Ursa Mini Pro listed on their website.

    I sent an email to them and Hans replied telling me they were just finishing the olpf for the original UM4.6k. The conversion becomes easy as you become more familiar with the video they send you. But basically, I had to add a shim over the existing one and remove the original filter (this was the tricky part) to install the new one. Removing the original is tricky because the rubber band is very tightly secure... But it's doable.
