BMD Pocket Cinema Camera (Shut up and take my money)

During the discussions about the 4K production camera that Blackmagic announced at NAB, I remember someone mentioning they had also announced a smaller, 1080p camera that fits in your pocket. I didn't think much about it at first, because I was interested in hearing about the other one, and I figured a lot must have been sacrificed on this one to make it so portable.

But at the last Premiere group meeting I went to I heard someone talking excitedly about it, and that made me curious so I've been reading more about it online- and I gotta say, the idea of a camera that has a 13-stop dynamic range, records in High-Quality ProRes AND RAW, records to readily-available SDXC cards, has the ability to change lenses, and costs just under a grand has me seriously excited. I want one...

Hi Greg: BMD's new cameras, like the original one, are pretty amazing.

If you haven't already seen it, John Brawley has written a detailed blog post about the new cameras:

Stay tuned to JB's blog. He'll probably post some sample footage from the new cameras "soon".

Cheers.
