April 7, 2013 -- If you haven't heard of Black Magic yet, you will very soon. At the upcoming National Association of Broadcasters Show that starts tomorrow in Las Vegas, Black Magic Design is going to officially announce a RAW 4k Video Camera that uses a Super 35mm Sensor, Ultra HD and 4k resolution, Built-in SSD, Touch screen LCD, Metadata Entry, ProRes, CinemaDNG RAW, Thunderbolt, and a Canon EF compatible Mount - all for $3995 - or 4k!!!
and their not stopping there......
They are also introducting a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera for $1000 that will feature a Super 16 Sensor, RAW capture using CinemaDNG RAW, 13-stops of Dynamic Range, Recording to SD cards, Hi-Res LCD displa, HDMI monitoring with overlays, and an Active Micro Four-Thirds Lens Mount.
