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.

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.
