Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K: The ONE Thing (Aside from All The Other Things)

by planetMitch1 Comment

You know we love Hugh Brownstone and he's put a very good perspective on the just announced Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k.

I'm at NAB but I haven't yet made it over to the BMC booth (darn them for being in the South Hall – long walk!) but this is about the only thing people are talking about that is really ‘new.'

But the perspectives are interesting… some think it is really cool and some don't. Of course, some are wary of delivery schedules and things BlackMagic has been burned by (bad pun if you know what i mean) in the past.

The price is of course insane ($1295) and will drive many people to pre-order but they're not supposed to be released until September (and again, will they make that date?).

So I totally agree with Hugh here – but I've also included some other of the top videos about the new camera.

What are your thoughts?

It's not interesting because it's the long-awaited successor to a cult-classic; it's not because I don't happen to love its industrial design. It's interesting because with its hybrid form factor, specs, and a price one half to one SIXTH that of its nearest competitors, it's the next evolution away from video cameras as we know them. But there's ONE thing missing that would have made it a market mover.

  1. We are getting so spoiled! I think a company finally nailed the most essential items list. Sure you have to pick up a speed booster, use ND’s, there is no flip out screen, or built in stabilizer but from a film making perspective, I’ve never had those things to begin with so this camera is really exciting and the upgrade I’ve been waiting for! I’m excited for a more reliable raw camera. I’ve been shooting on a 5d with ML and the last project I did had a ton of dropped frames and lost footage.
