BMPCC 6K Pro: Through the Watchmakers Eye

Sjoerd Wess is a well known Instagrammer and YouTuber. ‘Through the Watchmakers Eye’ is a beautiful short about his father, who is one of the last master watch repairers in Holland. Sjoerd talks about shooting with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro, using a Mitakon 50mm cine prime and LAOWA 100mm lenses.

“I started thinking I could shoot this project by simply reversing one of my wide angle lenses to be able to shoot in macro. But I wasn’t too sure if it would be good enough quality for this project. Great for bees and flowers, but I had doubts about shooting all of the mechanical bits in a timepiece. And then I got an email from Laowa asking me if I wanted to test any of their lenses! I immediately thought of their 100mm macro. Then Zhongyi Optics reached out to me, asking if I wanted to try out their new Mitakon 50mm cine prime. I couldn’t believe it. I now had ‘the perfect set’ of professional lenses for shooting this project.”
