    Blackmagic Night Review, Great turn out of 30, quite a few new attendees including many local TV professionals. Richard kicked off with a brief look at Blackmagic Intensity HDMI capture card, stop motion & Premiere. Dariusz gave a video presentation on Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio, including photoshop preset for creating live graphics. Martyn Chalk from Chalkstar films was a great speaker, he not only brought two of his blackmagic cameras but he also brought his cameraman too so he could answer the very technical questions some of the audience asked. He also showed some of his companies work using the cameras. Questions started off on pro's and con's of DSLRs Verses Blackmagic, through to postproduction workflow, grading, lenses and customisation. One audience brought in his own homemade blackmagic camera batteries he had made! There was a raffle for a years subscription to the Creative Cloud, thanks to Adobe. The prize was won by Luca Koch; and quite a few went to pub after.
