We thought Blackmagic was the only disk recorder manufacturer bold enough to step into the camera market, but lately it seems to become a trend as AJA just released their own version of the “cinema camera”.
The AJA Cion is now available for pre-order. It is selling for $8,995 LINK
AJA is famous for their prores disk recorders and their newest product revealed today is the AJA Cion. ...
The new Blackmagic Production Camera 4K has arrived in the hands of some people already. Blackmagic was kind enough to lend us a test sample and we got familiar with the camera over the last days. At $3000 this is the only camera that currently offers this kind of sharp and cinematic image at a resolution of 4K with a few other benefits and obstacles.
Please note that this camera can deliver very impressive results. After discussing the sensor issues in question I will summarize all the pro’s and con’s at the end of this article. ...
The Blackmagic Cinema Cameras have just become a whole lot more attractable, and by no result of their own.

Back in 2011, Mosaic Engineering brought an interesting product to the table; a removable “anti-aliasing” filter that removes moiré from fine detail within your image.

While we are waiting for BMCC pocket camera to be shipped in larger quantities and BMCC 4K to be ready, an email from Grant Petty (BMCC CEO) arrived this morning announcing a considerable price reduction for the original BMCC 2.5k version....
Well, July has been and gone, where are the new Blackmagic cameras?
After speaking with Andrew Reid of EOSHD last week, Blackmagic released the following statement regarding the shipping dates for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema, and Blackmagic 4k Cinema Camera.
“Blackmagic Design is making significant progress in production of the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. Full production manufacturing is underway on the Pocket Cinema Camera with first production units in final testing. This is inline with our initial expectations of the end of July and means the camera will start to ship in quantity during August. There are several weeks of work to do on Production Camera 4K before this will enter full production manufacturing, however we expect to ship the first quantities of this model before the end of August.”
If I’m honest, I was a little surprised by this news. Just a week before this, Europe’s largest dealer CVP sent a frustrated email to their customers stating that they had no idea when they were receiving quantities of either camera. I was therefore expecting a much later release date for both....
After a very long wait customers who ordered the Blackmagic Cinema Camera MFT are now starting to receive their orders.
