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. ...
Blackmagic Design has cut the price of its global shutter 4K Production Camera from $3999 to $2999 – probably as a reaction to the announcement of the Panasonic GH4 last week, which is rumored to be priced at $1999 with a similar price tag on the optional XLR/SDI accessory for 10bit 4:2:2 4K output. (Official price in Europe will be € 2735.)
The Blackmagic 4K Production Camera is available for order from B&H now.
In Europe, AF Marcotec offers the camera for € 2.079 net price with an additional €50 off with the exclusive code C5DBMPC4K, valid only until Feb 28.
The price drop will be extended to all pre-orders too, a move that will bring Blackmagic Design a lot of additional sympathy for sure. ...
The saga of the Magic Lantern raw hack was riveting, over the space of a couple of weeks we witnessed development initiating from the possibility of a (relatively slow) raw burst read out from the 5D Mark III, to full HD up to 25p continuous recording (30p recording also using careful considerations). It truly transformed the 5D Mark III, making it the only full frame raw video enabled camera....
We’ve been following the development of the Apertus° Axiom camera which has been going on for quite a while now. It’s a serious, affordable cinema camera with all the features indie filmmakers could wish for. ...
As shooting RAW is getting ever more popular among low budget productions and 4K is starting to become a requirement the Sony FS700 in combination with the R5 RAW recorder looks like an interesting proposal.
The update for Sony’s S700 was presented this summer and while the option to record RAW at slomo speeds up to 240 fps was intriguing, the size and cost of the setup is for many a big downside. ...
I received an exciting email this morning from the Digital Bolex team, The D16 camera is ready for release and they will start taking fresh pre-orders next week.
This news has been eagerly awaited since completion of the Kickstarter campaign in March 2012. Backers of the project will be excited to know that their orders will be processed as earlier as this week.
Back in June we reported that camera manufacturer Ikonoskop were in financial trouble, which was shortly followed by the company filing for bankruptcy. They have now announced a trio of new investors that will in turn renew and improve Ikonoskop. ...
Before heading for a shooting trip to Croatia for a music video (to be released later this year), I decided to take both the preproduction KineRAW Mini and a 5D Mark III (Magic Lantern firmware for raw recording) with me to do some comparisons.
The wonderful and equally talented Nicola von Leffern (a very talented camerawoman in her own right – seriously do check out her videos and showreel by clicking here) agreed to be my camera test victim. Thanks Nicola!!
