Digital Cameras have come a long way in the past 5-6 years in terms of improving image quality, workflow, meeting the demands of independent filmmakers, and affordability. However, there is a new digital camera aiming to take progress even one step further- The Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera.
Manufactured by the Australian based company Blackmagic Design, this latest digital camera delivers a score of impressive features, including:
- A 2.5K Image Sensor
- 12-bit Raw ProRes and DNxHD Formats
- 13 Stops of Dynamic Range
- EF and ZE Lens Mount (which is compatible with the Canon EF, Zeiss CP.2 and ZE lenses)
- A 5’’ LCD Touchscreen with Metadata Entry
- Records to Removable SSD Drives
- Includes DaVinci Resolve and Ultrascope (a $1,000 system for FREE)
- and Much, Much MORE.
Probably the most astonishing feature and the one that will seize the attention of most independent filmmakers, is the insanely low price point- $2,995!
While this camera does still contain some flaws, like utilizing a 4/3s sensor instead of a Super 35mm-sized sensor like the RED or Canon C300, I still predict this camera will be a popular item once it’s released in late July among the independent film crowd.
