Blackmagic Does It Again!
on Apr 8, 2013 at 5:16:24 am

They were the talk of NAB last year with their first-ever camera, the $2995 Blackmagic Cinema Camera - which is now shipping and producing great results.

This year, they're announcing two new cameras:

- The "Blackmagic Production Camera" - a $3995 4K camera with a Super 35 sensor, a global shutter to eliminate CMOS skew/jello, and an EF mount - and

- The "Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera" - a $995 ProRes/CinemaDNG RAW camera with a Super 16 sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range and a micro 4/3 mount.

Here's a fuzzy picture of both cameras from the Twitterverse (official announcement is tomorrow): https://twitter.com/michaelkammes/status/321082752566964224/photo/1

This second camera really interests me - RAW video for less than $1000 - and I already have lenses for it. I'm guessing that it won't ship for awhile, so I'll have time to work on convincing my wife that I need one :)

Cheers,

Bill

I can't believe the Pocket Camera does RAW on SD cards

An unbelievable development, let's see what Resolve 10 brings.

Early reports say ProRes and CinemaDNG RAW: http://www.engadget.com/2013/04/08/blackmagic-pocket-cinema-camera/

But, as we used to say in the military: "the first report is always wrong" :)

Looks like it's correct, have amended my post. Looking forward to the actual announcement

There's nothing we can't argue about on the FCPX COW Forum

None of the BMD cameras feature 50p or 60p.

30p is their top frame rate. If you need >30 fps, use a different camera.

The BMD PC-4K camera can also record 1080 @ 50i or 60i (interlaced), but that's half the res of 1080 @ 50p or 60p.

If Blackmagic give us 50p then they really are going to be full on game changers. What I really like is the way that they're looking at innovation and cost point to completely change the production landscape. Exciting times to be in the industry!
