We’ve come far from just a few years ago when studio video cameras were bulky and expensive. But actually, could you use a sub $1,000 camera that fits into your cargo shorts as a full-on studio cam? This article from Red Shark News about the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera may be a little tongue-in-cheek, but […]

Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised, but Blackmagic says the 4k Blackmagic Cinema Camera will be delayed. I feel sorry for them having so much trouble with vendors… but things happen and at least they’re being up front about it. This is also another reason why you pay more for other brands – they often control […]

One of the immediate concerns about the Blackmagic Cinema Camera came from the internal, non-removable battery which lasts only 90 minutes. A good external power source is essential for any filmmaker and becomes absolutely mandatory when you cannot switch out batteries.
