NAB 2013: Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera

One of Blackmagic's announcements at NAB this year aims to bring Raw recording down to pint size. Their new Pocket Cinema Camera features a tiny body that houses a 16mm-size sensor, and can easily accomodate MFT, PL, and C-mount lenses.

Additionally, it boasts 13-stops of dynamic range, recording onto SD cards in ProRes 422HQ and lossless CinemaDNG RAW. Blackmagic has also included a few great features including a headphone jack for audio monitoring, a micro HDMI connector for an external video monitor, and a LANC jack for remote operation. Handheld shooting will obviously be challenging due to its small form factor, but its size makes it ideal for POV shooting and various mobile mounting applications.

Tutorials & Guides
At least once or twice a week I'm asked by clients if Super-16 lenses can be used with the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera. It's understandable that they ask; the camera is an interesting and affordable new option but the sensor size is unique. Plus, many people have excellent S-16 glass gathering dust on the shelf. Marrying the two would be convenient and cost-effective.

I'm over at the Blackmagic Design booth talking with Jason Druss about their new affordable control surfaces for DaVinci Resolve: the Resolve Mini and Resolve Micro panels. Both panels feature a subset of the functionality available on the full-size Advanced panel targeted but at different user levels.
