What do you get for the new low price on the Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4K camera?

Some of what's included for just under $3,000.00:

  • Canon EF mount with automatic iris control
  • 4K Super 35mm Sensor with Global Shutter
  • 12 stops of dynamic range
  • 4K and HD recording in ProRes 422 (HQ) and CinemaDNG RAW (compressed)

Blackmagic Design keeps turning the filming world on its head with products like the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K and the recent software upgrade for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera that adds RAW recording to a sub-$1,000 Super 16 camera.

Oops, I forgot to add to the above list a free copy of DaVinci Resolve and UltraScope software.
