The big buzz on Day One at NAB 2013 comes once again from BlackMagic Design. Definitely not resting on their laurels, they’ve raised their game a couple of notches. At the high end, is the official debut of the Cinema Production Camera 4k. The headline is “4K for $4K” since the camera has true 4k resolution, is built to take existing EF series lenses – and is expected to ship in July at a retail price point of $3995 US.
As exciting as that news was, it was perhaps “undershadowed” by the simultaneous announcement of the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera a Micro Four Thirds lens unit sized to fit comfortably in a pocket or purse boasting a 16mm 1080 sensor and RAW capability with 13 stops of dynamic range.
More revolutionary thinking from BlackMagic.
It’s a great time to be making video.
