Blackmagic Design Announces New Low Price for Blackmagic Cinema Camera!

Fremont, CA - August 2, 2013 - Blackmagic Design today announced a new lower price for the award winning Blackmagic Cinema Camera to US$1,995.

Now in the hands of thousands of film makers all over the world, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera is globally recognized for its amazing 13 stops of wide dynamic range and 2.5K sensor for true digital film quality shooting. With RAW, ProRes™ or DNxHD™ recording, files can be opened directly in popular editing software without conversion! The multi award winning design has the features customers need to start filming straight out of the box including a super fast SSD recorder, rechargeable battery, and a large 5” LCD touchscreen. This large touchscreen monitor allows easy monitoring, metadata entry, camera settings and fast accurate focus.

Available in two models, customers can choose from either the EF or passive MFT lens mount, compatible with amazing optics from the world’s leading lens crafters such as Canon, Zeiss and more. For high end work, filmmakers can shoot in uncompressed 12 bit CinemaDNG RAW. The incredible resolution and dynamic range means that more of the scene is captured, giving greater creative control for Hollywood style color correction with the included DaVinci Resolve software.

“The response to the Blackmagic Cinema Camera has been incredible,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “The tremendous support we received encouraged us to work even harder to make the camera available to more videographers and filmmakers. It’s amazing to see the projects that have already been completed and I can’t wait to see what the creative community delivers next!”
