The Micro Cinema Camera goes where no other professional camera can go and delivers Super 16mm digital film quality. Now you can get the impossible shots that would be too dangerous for a cameraman, or too cramped for a regular camera! Unlike the cheap, lossy compression found on other small cameras, the Micro Cinema Camera features a built in recorder that saves images in professional Cinema DNG RAW and ProRes formats. That means you get files with exceptional image quality, timecode, accurate AV sync and perfect color fidelity.
Micro Cinema Camera is perfect for use on even smaller, more affordable quadcopters! Its wide dynamic range and light weight let you shoot panoramic fly overs that capture every subtle detail in the bright skies and dark moody terrain! You get brilliant images, and because it works with an incredible range of high quality interchangeable lenses, you can choose the right lens for each shot! Use a wireless video transmitter and radio remote control so you can see the shot while it’s in the air and remotely control lens settings and record start/stop. That means you won’t fill up valuable storage while flying into position!
You usually only have one chance to get it right when shooting a dangerous crash sequence. The Micro Cinema Camera is the perfect crash cam because it’s small enough to fit virtually anywhere, has multiple mount points so you can enclose it in a crash-proof box, and can be controlled remotely. That means you can stay clear of the danger and still get true digital film quality shots! You can use the remote control to quickly control iris, focus and even start or stop recording from a safe distance. With the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera you can safely capture the most dangerous shots at full digital film quality!
You’ll get unbeatable base jumping or freestyle snowboarding shots because now you can wear a true digital film camera! The Micro Cinema Camera is small and light weight, uses high quality MFT lenses and records to professional RAW and ProRes formats, so the shots have the quality you need to make amazing looking sports documentaries. That makes it the best wearable camera for getting extreme point of view shots. All you have to do is strap it to your helmet or wear it across your chest, push the record button, and go!
Be careful not to compromise your helmet’s safety when you attach a camera to it.
Whether your shot takes place inside or outside of a vehicle, the top and bottom mount points let you secure the Micro Cinema Camera to any rig. You get the best image quality from it’s incredible sensor with high frame rates up to 1080p60. You can even mount multiple cameras to a vehicle for complete coverage! You can push the record buttons manually, or link them all to radio remote control receivers on the same frequency to trigger them all at once! The record light on the top front of the camera can be seen clearly so you’ll know all the cameras are recording before the action starts.
Capture the environment and animal behavior with all the wonder of the natural world! The Micro Cinema Camera can be set up for long shots in the wild and, because it’s so small, it won’t interfere with animals in their natural habitat! The camera’s image quality blends in perfectly with any scripted studio introductions. For time lapse recordings that go for hours, the camera can be customized with a larger external battery using the DB-HD15 expansion port’s power input. You can also attach LP-E6 compatible batteries to maintain power when you need to change the external battery and build custom cables when you need to place the camera far away from people!
When a shot is too dangerous or physically impossible for a cameraman, the Micro Cinema Camera can still get the shot! Its compact body fits into extremely tight, difficult or even precarious locations. Send it up in a weather balloon to create the ultimate storm chaser scene, put it on a narrow conveyor belt in a factory for a unique point of view, or even capture a bird’s eye view from a cliff hanging Condor nest! No shot is too risky because the camera can be configured with wireless monitoring, long lasting power supplies and a wide angle lens with infinite focus. Once it’s set up, you hardly have to touch it again!
You can use Micro Cinema Camera for reality TV where you want to capture the most natural performances from the participants. Even investigative reporters for news magazines or documentary filmmakers can place hidden cameras in an effort to gather the true story. The small size, flexible lens options and built in stereo mic means you can candidly capture interviews or interactions without subjects playing to the camera. Build unique rigs to camouflage the camera as it sits on a book shelf or in a potted plant. Wireless monitoring and radio remote control options allow you to focus and change aperture settings as the shoot takes place.
