Pocket Cinema Camera offers film look for less than $1000

Blackmagic Design may be known for high-end video production equipment. But at the NAB show in Las Vegas this week, it introduced a pocket-sized camera that will let content producers get the sort of cinematic look that usually comes from higher-priced equipment.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera comes with a $995 price tag and features a Super 16mm-sized 1080HD sensor and 13 stops of dynamic range. It records to SD cards and has a Micro Four Thirds Lens mount. The sub-$1000 cost doesn’t include a lens, but Micro Four Thirds lenses start at around $100. The pocket cinema camera will be available in July.

For content creators looking for a higher-end camera, Blackmagic also showed off the $3995 Production Camera 4K. It can shoot 4K video with a Super 35mm sized sensor. It will also be out in July.
