Personalize Your Micro Cinema Camera

The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera has been designed for maximum customization allowing it to be used in hundreds of ways! From manually operated helmet cams where you may only want to attach a flat pancake lens for a low profile to a larger production where you need to wirelessly control the camera which is encased in a crash cam box.

Model Aircraft Radio Control

Analog radio control transmitters and receivers from manufacturers like Spektrum, JR and Hitec are typically used to drive servos on model planes but are perfect for simple wireless remote control of the Micro Cinema Cam. These systems are incredibly popular and available on hobbyist web sites world wide! The dials, switches and joysticks on the radio controller are output on different radio channels and these channels can be connected to the camera and assigned to different camera functions. The expansion port on the Micro Cinema Camera includes 4 analog PWM inputs for 4 channels. If you need more than 4 channels you can use the S.Bus control.

Wireless Video Transmitters

Inexpensive video transmitters can take composite out of the Micro Cinema Camera and wirelessly transmit the signal to monitors. RF-Link, and Nyrius make composite video transmitters that send signals up to 300 ft away! You can view the live video feed on a monitor as well as camera settings overlays, remotely as the camera flies over head in a quadcopter. A more advanced monitoring solution is to use a wireless HDMI transmitter to connect to HD video glasses such as Zeiss Cinemizer OLED that surround you with the video signal so you can fly the quadcopter as a virtual reality experience!

Active Micro Four Thirds Lenses

The incredibly small active Micro Four Thirds lenses make them perfect for the Micro Cinema Camera! You get high performance, interchangeable photographic lenses that keep the size of the camera compact. Manufacturers like Olympus and Sigma make a wide range of active Micro Four Thirds lenses from fast primes to telephotos while, Panasonic MFT lenses even include optical image stabilization!

Lens Adaptors

Third party lens mount adapters let you use traditional Canon EF or high end cinema lenses that use the PL lens mount. You can take advantage of the photographic lenses you may already own from manufacturers like Canon, Zeiss and others without being locked into a single lens system!

Quadcopters

Aerial cinematography allows you to get shots that were previously only possible with large rigs. Quadcopters from DJI and OFM can include features like 3 axis gimbals so you can get ultra steady images. The super light weight of the Micro Cinema Camera means you can get more flying time and get better images, or even use smaller lower cost quadcopters!

Rigging and Mounting

Mount the camera into crash cam boxes, vehicle mounts, lighting rigs and more using the 1/4” thread mounts on the top and bottom of the chassis. Mount larger external microphones or small LCD displays like the Blackmagic Video Assist using the top mount point while the bottom can be used for, short flexible Gorillapods or miniature, hand held stabilizers like Glidecams!

Advanced Multi
Channel Radio Control

For advanced wireless control when you need more than 4 channels and greater adjustment precision, the expansion port includes an S.Bus digital control input that supports up to 18 channels on a single connection. S.Bus can also be used for control from other types of devices such as embedded processors when you need extremely sophisticated or accurately sequenced camera control.

LANC Remote control

LANC is a universal standard for controlling various camera lenses and accessories that is supported by hundreds of equipment manufacturers. The expansion port’s breakout cable includes an industry standard LANC jack so you can connect external lens controllers for your active Micro Four Thirds lenses. That means, depending on your lens, you could get wired remote control over things like iris, focus and even servo zooms.

Removable Batteries

Don’t run out of power in the middle of a production. The Micro Cinema Camera uses readily available LP-E6 lithium ion batteries that are commonly used with Canon cameras so you can always have a few spares on hand. These popular style batteries have wide support around the world, so you can find car chargers and multi chargers as well as other unique peripherals for them!
