Sugarway didn’t manage to attend NAB this year however we’e been devouring all the information on new releases and updates that has been flowing out. One in particular was Blackmagic’s new £700 Pocket Cinema Camera. Feast your eyes over the spec. sheet, sounds like a great low end on ramp to great quality video.
For me the ability to record RAW (Compressed CinemaDNG after a firmware update) and have 13 stops of dynamic range are pretty amazing and this price point. I only hope they manage to deliver it on time. Many people who ordered Blackmagic’s ‘new’ camera at NAB last year have yet to, or only just received it, and now Blackmagic have released a 4K version with a full super 35 sensor. A bitter sweet day for some people?
