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
