I had a hunch this was just around the corner. That's why I never pre-ordered the 2.5k model.

If I'm reading their ad correctly Adorama now has the current EF model in stock.

But then next year comes the full frame version with a magical way to include built in ND filters and XLR inputs and also a removable battery. ;)

And the following year is the one that adds 240fps at 4K and 480fps at 1080.

Re: $3995 Black Magic 4K Cinema Camera!

Yes absolutely agree and get your point. But a least with the 4k raw version one can start archiving footage that should be somewhat future proof. The 2.5k version is already obsolete.

Re: $3995 Black Magic 4K Cinema Camera!

Anybody know what Blackmagic means by "4K" in terms of the actual, specific resolution of the video files? I know there's a "4 times 1080p pixels" flavor of 4k then there's some broadcast 4K standard that is actually over 4,000 pixels wide. Thanks!

Re: $3995 Black Magic 4K Cinema Camera!

Its native resolution is 3840 x 2160, so it's UHD, rather than Cinema 4K (4096 wide).

Frankly, that's not a big deal. It's only a 6% resolution difference. The bigger limitation is that a Bayer sensor at 3840 won't offer the full resolution possible for UHD. The true resolution will be more like 3K, depending on the anti-aliasing filter in the camera and the de-Bayer software quality.

But, hey, at $4,000 I'm not complaining - especially given the S35 sensor size.

And in 2015, this one actually ships in numbers. In 2016, most of the bugs are worked out.

None? That's not a good thing, IMO.

It may not need them since it's not using a DSLR type sensor.
No moire or aliasing I believe. It's also a global shutter so no skewing either.

Re: $3995 Black Magic 4K Cinema Camera!

The problem is this: if you don't anti-alias before the signal hits the pixels, you can get content that falls between the cracks. Yes, the cracks are larger in a DSLR, but anti-aliasing is always important when you go from analog to digital. It's especially important for moving pictures where high frequency content can make the image "sing".
