For the few lucky folks who have a Blackmagic Cinema Camera in-hand, Blackmagic Design today released a new firmware update version 1.1 which includes long-promised support for DNxHD recording, plus new features: Support for EF lenses with IS (image stabilization), and some additional shutter angles. http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support/
Below is a list I made of the reported new shutter angles and their shutter speed equivalents calculated using this website (to the best of my knowledge the list is correct; since I don’t have my camera yet I can’t confirm it, regrets). http://super8arena.com/shutter_speed.php
Below that is the text of BMD’s Read Me file (Mac version). I assume the Windows version of the Read Me file is similar:
BMCC firmware v1.1 shutter angle and shutter speed equivalents, at 3 example frame rates (with “normal” shutter angle of 180 degrees in bold):
