    I'm going to shoot a music video that's going to be shot mostly at night. On the beach, in a car, etc.
    Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Light your set for this camera and shoot at native ISO. It's all about lighting.

    Light and rigging are really important.

    Light, because it really isnīt a lowlight champ, so bring some flexible lighting options to the set.
    Rigging, because the formfactor isnīt the best and a good rig/tripod helps a lot.

    And keep in mind, that the crop factor of the BMCC is 2.28, so if you want to go wide, your options are kinda limited.

    If you have the MFT mount, you can use/rent a Speed Booster if possible.

    If you don't have the option to light, regardless of why, the bmcc is really the wrong camera for the job.

    Consider renting something with low-light ability like a sony a7sii.
