Earlier this week we announced the upcoming Blackmagic Cinema Camera, an extremely well-priced 2.5K resolution high-definition video camera. Well, it didn't take long for this sucker to go up for sale, and now you can pre-order it at B&H Photo. At such a tempting price point, who here is going to grab one as soon as they can?
It's small, it's powerful, and most importantly, it's cheap. In case you missed the specs, the Blackmagic looks like this:
- 2.5K Image Sensor
- 12-bit RAW, ProRes and DNxHD Formats
- 13 Stop Dynamic Range
- 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30p Frame Rates
- EF and ZE Lens Mount
- LCD Touchscreen with Metadata Entry
- SDI Video Output and Thunderbolt Port
- Mic/Line Audio Inputs
- Records to Removable SSD Drives
- Includes DaVinci Resolve and UltraScope
What I like most about these is the lens mounting flexibility. What stops me from moving from one brand's camera to another tends to be the issue with having to buy new lenses. With this, I wouldn't have to worry about a thing.
