Blackmagic Cinema Camera
The Blackmagic Cinema Camera: In Production and Comparison The Blackmagic Cinema Camera: In Production and Comparison

Calling the Blackmagic Cinema Camera "eagerly anticipated" is an understatement. This camera priced at only $2995 has offered the promise of something truly special since it was announced. OneRiver Media owner Marco Solorio has spent 20 years living just ahead of the curve for both technology and creativity, and here puts both to work in the most comprehensive overview of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera to date. He takes the Cinema Camera through its paces, including some less-than-ideal conditions. There's a neutral grade to keep things fair, and Marco also intentionally left in the rolling shutter and vibration artifacts he found so that you can see what the footage REALLY looks like. Marco even offers comparison footage taken by the Canon 5D Mk III. You definitely don't want to miss this one.
