Blackmagic Design’s Cinema Camera

Canon and Sony have their super high-end cameras, and Blackmagic Design has been trying to get more attention for their own. It’s called Cinema Camera and it’s different from the competition not just because of its unique design, but also due to its ability to capture film quality video on its 2.5k sensor and output it to CinemaDNG RAW, ProRes, and DNxHD file formats. Canon or Zeiss lenses can be attached on the front, and it’s equipped with a built-in SSD recorder and a capacitive touch-screen display. It has an included copy of DaVinci Resolve that will handle all of the color correction needs after the video is captured. Those videos can then be pulled from the SSD over a selection of high speed ports such as Thunderbolt and BNC SDI. Since it features built-in metadata entry, your files will include information compatible with the most well-known editing software—dramatically speeding up the post production process.


The Cinema Camera is priced at about US $2,995 (approximately Php 126,000) and you can visit for more information on the company’s products.
