Revolutionary Video Camera
As an old TV and film producer and Director, I started my career as a cameraman at channel Nine.. My love of photography has been mainly in the still arena, but apart from shooting professional film productions, where I used mainly Arriflex and Panavision cameras, my amateur pursuits were limited to 3 chip pro/amateur cameras. In this area most enthusiastic amateurs are limited by size and price.
Although I have not been able to get my hands on this camera yet, I felt I should report this camera that I believe will revolutionise smaller budget productions and give amateurs the opportunity to duplicate high-end professional quality. Achieve the look of a feature film on a small budget with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera! With a2.5K CMOS image sensor delivering 13 stops of dynamic range, and an EF-compatible lens mount, amazing high quality movie footage from a compact and affordable body is now possible. Recording uncompressed Cinema DNG RAW and industry-standard Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD file formats directly to 2.5” SSD drives*, and sporting a 5” LCD Touch Screen with easy metadata entry, you can get the shots and edits you want – on-time and on-budget.
Standard connections include 3Gb/s SDI out, mic/line in, 12V-30V external power, headphone out, LANC and Thunderbolt^. Furthermore, Davinci Resolve grading software is included! The Blackmagic is perfect for the budding indie filmmaker or seasoned pro looking for an impressive-yet-compact cinematic solution.
This is a body only kit and does not include a lens.,high quality lenses from different manufacturers are available for under a thousand dollars. A compatible lens is required to shoot video footage. Mac Thunderbolt will output 10 bit 4:2:2 1920×1080 video. The camera should be able to capture RAW from Thunderbolt in a future firmware update. I can’t wait to get my hands on this camera. John Pond
