Blackmagic Cinema Cameras
The reason the latest and most amazing television commercials, music videos and feature films look so good is because they’ve been shot with a digital film camera and then color corrected using DaVinci Resolve. Video cameras, even high end broadcast video cameras, always just look like sharper home movies because they’re limited to a regular video sensor. Blackmagic Cinema Cameras are true wide dynamic range digital film cameras designed to shoot with cinematic quality. Imagine adding the style and quality of digital film to your latest TV commercial, feature film, music video or even documentary, weddings or corporate videos!
You can choose between models with PL, EF or MFT lens mounts so you can use the world’s best and most technically sophisticated lenses. The PL models allow you to use, or even rent, professional cinema lenses from companies such as Panavision™, ARRI™ or Zeiss™. You can even use vintage PL cinema lenses when you’re shooting period work where you want to recreate the look of that time by using the actual lens they used back in those days! The EF models let you use high resolution Canon™ photographic lenses for amazing quality, while the passive MFT model allows super small lenses and the flexibility to adapt to other lens mounts.
The built in high resolution 5” LCD touchscreen can be used for entering metadata directly into the camera by simply typing on the soft keyboard, so it’s as easy to use as any smartphone. Shot number can automatically increment, so you don’t have to enter it for each shot! Entering metadata directly into the camera means every time you record the shot information is recorded into the media file so editing software such as DaVinci Resolve or Final Cut Pro X can quickly identify and locate the shot you need when you are in post production saving editing time and eliminating manual logging.
