Blackmagic Design have sent out invitations via email and posted teasers on social media inviting people to a live stream of “a press conference showing our latest camera and post production technology” today. What’s behind this Blackmagic Live Stream? Blackmagic Live Stream. Photo credit: Blackmagic While we don’t know what to expect from this Blackmagic Live Stream, one can presume that DaVinci Resolve 13 is a likely candidate for announcement, given that their invite specifically mentions their professional post-production software. There is, however, surprisingly little information in the wild about this press conference. Some rumours have started circulating about a 4K update to their MFT Pocket Cinema Camera, with the addition of an H.265 codec. All we know is that we can’t wait to tune in and find out what Blackmagic have up their sleeves. Local times indicated below, to see what they have in store for us. Leave me your guesses in the comments below, and let’s see who gets it right!

John Brawley, an Australian director of photography who helps Blackmagic with the development of their Cinema Cameras, has just released the first footage from the much-anticipated Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. He used it for “about an hour” at his local market and put together some shots in Final Cut Pro X. It’s impressive that this tiny sub-$1,000 camera is able to record in ProRes (he used the ProRes film mode) with 13 stops of latitude with a Super 16mm sensor. Lenswise he used an IS stabilized Micro 4/3 lens, the Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8, plus a Hoya ND16. Here’s the link to John Brawley’s blog for more detail. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is available for preorder from B&H – link see below!Read more
