PVC on BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera

Clint Milby at the Pro Video Coalition has an article on the sub $1000 Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.

I would love one, though since I have all Canon EF and EF-S lenses this camera is pretty useless to me even at under $1000. I would do better with the 4K or normal Blackmagic camera.

John Brawley hands on with Blackmagic Tech Pocket Camera

John Brawley has an excellent hands on with the new Blackmagic Pocket Camera. And info on the 4K. Sounds like an impressive little camera, though with a little rolling shutter issues, that the 4K should fix.

Amazing that Blackmagic has become such an impressive camera company in such a short period of time! And $1000 plus lenses is a steal for a 1080 camera!

HD Warrior on Black Magic Cinema Pocket Camera

HD Warrior has a great writeup on the $995 micro 3/4 camera that can also be adapted to use Super 16 lenses.

Cinema5D on 2 new Black Magic Cameras a 4K and a Mini

Cinema5D has the scoop on 2 new Black Magic Cameras being released at NAB, and leaked thanks to flags.

You can see them at No Film School.

The $3995

Blackmagic Production Camera 4K

Compact 4K camera with large super-35 sensor, global shutter, Ultra HD and 4K support, built-in SSD recorder, touch LCD metadata entry, compressed CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes recording, Thunderbolt and EF lens compatibility, Includes DaVinci Resolve and UltraScopes.
The $999 Portable for Micro 3/4 Lenses (damn was hoping this would work with normal canon lenses).

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera

Ultra-portable super-16 digital cinema camera with super wide 13 stops of dynamic range. Super 16 sized 1080p HD sensor, built in SD card reader, High resolution LCD, ProRes and Lossless CinemaDNG RAW recording, Active Micro Four Thirds lens compatibility, Micro HDMI monitoring with Overlays.

The 4K will make up for the decencies of the current camera with a Super-35 Sensor! And the $999 portable could be mindblowing! A point and shoot sized camera with those specs. Damn! That could really change everything and be kind of what RED initially promised with the SCARLET.
