DeathMatch Between BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera vs Blackmagic 4k Production Camera

by planetMitch1 Comment

If put into a death match cage, does the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera or the Blackmagic 4k Production Camera come out the winner?

That’s the question Emmanuel Sapolsky posed and then answered when he took his brand new Blackmagic 4k Production Camera out and tested it against the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera.

There are some comparisons which you will find very interesting and informative.

And, I too am shocked to see Blackmagic Design hasn’t yet removed the ‘black sun’ problem from the Blackmagic 4k Production Camera! That’s very unfortunate indeed.

I was very impressed with the conversion of the 4k image down to 1080 – something I expected to see some improvement with, but it maybe was a bit more than I expected.

Of course, we’re not going to give away Emmanuel’s winner, you’ll have to watch to see that, but you will be interested in the answer – even if you’re shooting with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III or another HDSLR!
