For some times, cinema pros have used Blackmagic Cinema Cameras for their work, considering how awesome the cameras and their features were. But now, Blackmagic has something for the consumer crowd that would usually buy DSLRs or Micro Four Thirds cameras: the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. It sports a Super 16mm-sized, 1080p-capable sensor with 13 stops of dynamic range, an SD slot for expandable storage, and compatibility with Micro Four Thirds lenses. The biggest deal about the Pocket Cinema Camera is its ability to record in Apple ProRes or lossless CinemaDNG RAW formats — for that crisp, rich, 1080p HD professional look which is ripe for editing.
It’ll cost $999 come shipping time in July. The adoption rate for this in cinema and journalism should be interesting.
