The Blackmagic Cinema Camera from Blackmagic Design brings to film makers a tool that many have waited for.
Many current generation video cameras suffer from a "video look" due to a limited contrast range, a maximum HD resolution sensor, poor quality optics and lenses, the use of heavy video compression for file recording and poor integration with NLE software metadata management. With these limitations, they cannot be used for high end work or feature films.
Blackmagic Cinema Camera has been designed to eliminate these problems so customers get a true feature film look, and at an affordable cost can shoot high end television commercials, episodic television programming and feature films.
Blackmagic Cinema Camera includes a super wide 13 stops of dynamic range, large 2.5K sensor, a built in SSD recorder that has the bandwidth to capture open standard CinemaDNG RAW, ProRes and DNxHD files, a built in capacitive touch screen LCD for direct metadata entry, standard jack audio connections, built in high-speed Thunderbolt connection, 3 Gb/s SDI output, a refrigerated sensor for low noise, and is fully compatible with extremely high quality Canon EF and Zeiss ZE mount lenses.
Blackmagic Cinema Camera also includes a full copy of DaVinci Resolve for colour correction and Blackmagic UltraScope software for waveform monitoring. UltraScope can be run on a laptop connected to the camera via a Thunderbolt connection.
One of the most important features of the camera is its super wide dynamic range of 13 stops, allowing feature film quality images. Commonly people focus on more pixels, however often this just creates a higher resolution, but still "video" looking images that suffer from highlight and black clipping that limits details. Blackmagic Cinema Camera's wide dynamic range eliminates this problem and provides film quality with dramatically more detail retained in black and whites in the image. Once the shoot is complete, the included DaVinci Resolve colour correction software can be used to adjust images and take advantage of this extra range in the images. The high quality EF and ZE lens compatibility also helps create sharp and cinematic images that look incredible.
To eliminate the damage that low bit depth and high compression video storage creates, Blackmagic Cinema Camera includes a fast SSD recorder. The built in SSD recorder can record on fast solid state disks the full sensor detail in 12 bit Log RAW files in the open standard CinemaDNG format. These files can be read by all high end video software. The full 2.5K sensor data is stored in the files completely uncompressed because the SSD has the speed to store video data at the required rate. Then this high quality file can be colour corrected on DaVinci Resolve for the same high quality result currently only possible on cameras costing tens of thousands of dollars.
Blackmagic Cinema Camera has been designed as the perfect companion to Final Cut Pro X and Avid Media Composer NLE software. Unlike other cameras, which require the use of custom video file formats that are not compatible with popular NLE software, often making the post production process a nightmare, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera includes absolutely no custom video file formats, and every file type included is open standard. It records into CinemaDNG format for RAW files, ProRes and DNxHD for HD resolution files compatible with Final Cut Pro X and Avid Media Composer.
The built in large LCD display makes focus easy, and allows playback of captured files. Blackmagic Cinema Camera includes a built in microphone, as well as external jack based mic/line level balanced audio connections. When playing back recorded clips, a speaker is built in, and there is an included headphone socket, as well as embedded audio on the SDI output and Thunderbolt connection. The SDI output includes all camera data such as time code, transport control, shutter angle, colour temperature setting and ASA information overlaid in attractive anti-aliased fonts.
For easy metadata entry, the built in LCD features fast and responsive capacitive touch screen technology. When the user taps the display with a finger, a data entry window called the "slate" appears. This lets the user enter shot information just like typing on a smart phone. This data is then stored in the files so can be accessed by NLE software when editing content later. Metadata is compatible with popular software such as Final Cut Pro X and DaVinci Resolve. All camera settings can be changed on this touch LCD, such as frame rate, shutter angle, colour temperature, dynamic range, focus assist settings and more.
Blackmagic Cinema Camera includes an innovative industrial design built from solid machined aluminum metal which results in an attractive but rugged design. All of the camera, recorder and display have been shrunk down into a lightweight design that’s very portable.

The million dollar lookThis is a cinema grade quality camera at the price of a DSLR. An amazing camera the only down side is to make it a production quality camera you will need to add accessories to it. I would highly reccomend this camera to anyone interested in making films, music videos or commercials.

Cinema quality at an affordable price.There is not much to say about this product that can't already be seen on the company's website. The camera produces imagery of amazing quality, could not be simpler to set up, and is capable of shooting at thirteen stops of dynamic range (affording the owner with endless possibilities in the realm of colour grading.) There is a useful in camera time lapse setting, which makes shooting candid shots a breeze, and the user has the option of inputting their metadata directly, limiting the need to do it in post. While the battery life is not the greatest, this problem can be solved by purchasing an external battery for a very reasonable price. Likewise, additional accessories may be required to truly push the camera's capabilities. But for this price point, there isn't much better on the market.

Breath taking imagesWhat can I say, the images that come out of the camera are breath taking. I know I shouldn't really give it a 5 as there are some isues but these are getting resolved, and the firmware is in its early stages but the picture quality can be just so beautiful.
What you get is a recording device which can record Prores and DNxHD at 1920 x 1080 as well as RAW onto non proprietry SSD drives and a sensor (slightly bigger than super 16) which produces luscious images.
Be prepared to spend more money though - external battery solution, EVF or loupe etc etc. But I love this camera.
