    Thanks, interesting comparison and well done showing the two side by side.

    It does appear that the full size camera is better but that shouldn't be surprising. The light gathering ability is very similar{and impressive!} but the big cam has much better color.

    What lenses were used? Lenses can have an affect on color render so it is possible that the lens caused the bad color on the Pocket Cinema footage.

    Panasonic 14/2.5 on bmpcc and Tamron 17-50/2.8 on BMCC. Both goes to f2.6 on the cameras.

    to my eye there would seem to be a slight difference in the WB between the two, sufficient to create a small differential in exposure.

    however, you have all the data and settings so would know; and it may be the lens contribution, or a number of other elements, as already suggested.

    The WB was set to 4.6K in both cameras. But I Think it shows that it would be posible to match them quite Close in camera using the WB. I Think I will do Another video where I try to match them as good as I can.
