while the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K might not be the most affordable 4K rig, it is certainly the most portable 4K digital film camera. well, the film here refers to flick or movie, and not exactly the film strip-based camera. just thought we should clear the air on this. being this compact means videographers can have the option to built the rig up for the most complex jobs, or keep things down a notch for ‘simpler’ projects. for just $3,995, you are basically on your way to crafting some ultra HD features, thanks to its Super 35 size sensor. footages are recorded in high quality visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW, as well as Apple ProRes 422 file. other goodies include an integrated touchscreen monitor for ease of settings and entry of metadata right from the camera,a single 6G-SDI output, precision EF lens mount compatible with variety of lens makes in the market, uncompressed audio recording negating the need for audio syncing during post-production, removable SSD storage (up to 480GB; can be formatted to either HFS+ for Mac or exFAT for Windows), 12 stops of dynamic range, standard connections including Thunderbolt connectivity, 1/4″ mic/line input jack, a 3.5mm audio headphone jack, and a super sleek, machined aluminum chassis wraps up this neat production camera. expect the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K to start shipping this July. click past the jump for a few more look.
