A very exciting announcement was made at NAB 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada this week. Blackmagic Design announced two ridiculously affordable cinema cameras. One is a pocket cinema camera which will accept Micro 4/3 (MFT) lenses and uses SD cards to save the data. Very compact and you get the power of RAW. That means you will be able to adjust highlights, shadows and white balance to your liking AFTER you have recorded.
The other camera announced is the brand new Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. It will retail for $4,000.00 and that’s an unbelievable price. RED was rumored, many years ago, to be working on a 4K camera for $4,000.00. It never happened! Once again Blackmagic makes jaws drop across the world with their innovative and affordable technology.
