Blackmagic slashes price of Pocket Cinema Camera
FREMONT, CA — Blackmagic Design (www.blackmagicdesign.com) is offering a “Summer Special” discount for its Pocket Cinema Camera. Normally priced at $995, the camera is now available for $495, through August 31st.
Since its introduction, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera has been used in numerous independent films, television commercials, and music videos, particularly in scenarios in need of a high-quality digital film camera with a super small size. The unit offers a Super 16mm-sized 1080HD sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range, a built in SD card recorder for Apple ProRes, lossless CinemaDNG RAW capture and an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount. Its compact design allows it to be used in situations where a larger camera would not be practical.
The Pocket Cinema Camera has a built-in LCD for camera settings and supports 1080HD resolution capture in 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97 and 30 fps. Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve Lite 11 color correction and online editing software, which is compatible with the footage, can be used to adjust images after the shoot.
“We have worked hard to set up this exciting special price to allow more people to afford a super compact digital cinema camera that they can personally own,” explains Grant Petty, CEO of Blackmagic Design. “However stock is limited at this lower price so customers who want to buy at this price will need to move fast.”
