The Blackmagic Cinema Camera from Blackmagic Design brings to film makers a tool that many have waited for. Recording to a 2.5K image sensor, the camera is capable of recording 12-bit RAW DNG files. As well as ProRes and DNxHD formats to built-in removable SSD drives (not included), while delivering 13 stops of dynamic range. And it does so at a previously unheard of price point.
The camera is housed in an elegant, minimalist enclosure, crafted from a single block of aluminum. Blackmagic Cinema Camera can be used hand held or mounted on industry standard hardware. The lens mount accepts Canon EF and Zeiss ZE lenses. And the LCD touchscreen provides lots of thinks. Monitoring, plus the ability for the user to add metadata such as shot number, filenames and keywords.
