    So I've been shooting a series on a sony A7iii for a couple months now, because thats what the people who hired me have. However I'm shooting 2 of the episodes on my UMP and Pocket 4k (one episode on each cam). First 3 grabs (exteriors) are from the UMP and the rest (Interiors) are from the pocket 4k.

    Shot on UMP with SLR magic APO PL mount lenses with 1/8 hollywood blackmagic diffusion

    And Pocket 4k with metabones PL to MTF .71x speedbooster with SLR magic APO lenses, 1/8 hollywood blackmagic diffusion

    Pic of the pocket rig below.

    Nice shots, very organic Id say.
    Do you have some stills of the A7iii in the same/similar Locations, to compare the look?

    Thank you. Yes below are a couple in the same interior with that same dude talking to that characters sister. I will say I am really pleasantly surprised with the A7iii. I've been getting some good colour out of it albeit a little more plastic in looks. But I've come a long way with Sony...i used to hate it. Took a long time for me to find how to get it right as I used to hate their colour. However part of that was down to how other people was grading it (online when I looked and people who graded my work). When I started grading it myself ...well

    Also threw in 2 exteriors of the Sony ...not in the same location though. This was at a beach. Lighting set up for the exteriors on both Sony and BMD cameras . https://www.instagram.com/p/BpR1CGXg1Y0/ https://www.instagram.com/p/Btt1Stah31Q/ All natural light. Just some negative fill and diffusion. Interiors lit with Aputure 120d and LS1.

    These were shot on A7iii with Rokinon lenses. I prefer the A7iii to the A7sii which I have shot on alot also over the years.

    Thank you for posting those images and the useful information.
    Those Sony shots look very pleasing and natural, but the sharpness seems to have a different structure (but I like to use the Rokinon Lenses with my BMCC a lot).
    Whats your experience of the sony when it comes to darker skin tones?
    Did you use the "1/8 hollywood blackmagic diffusion" here as well?

    Beautiful work sir!
    Can tell the difference in skin tone on those Sony shots. Those Sony mirrorless just love to push yellow/green into the skin tones.

    Is it just me, or the slightly different grading/lighting but I find these Sony shots more surgical clean looking, somehow more distanced?

    No its not you. The Sony footage is more "plastic". I'm surprised you see if in these grabs as they are pretty deteriorated...but in moving images at full res...its very clean and smoothed out somewhat.

    Yeh its some of the best images i've gotten out of a Sony alpha series in years. I didn't use diffusion on the Sony images as I didn't have access to it.

    In regards to dark skin....I'm pleasantly surprised that these do look rich. I find that if i underxpose both cameras for dark skin it looks more rich so I i use negative fill whenever I can.
