blackmagic cinema camera production 4k kinefinity upgrade interchangeable battery hdmi outputAmong the slew of surprising NAB announcements this year comes one from Kinefinity that draws a whole different kind of “wow, I didn’t see that coming.” It seems the camera company isn’t satisfied merely offering 4K RAW (and soon enough, 6K RAW) capture at extremely aggressive prices.

Furthering the same professional motion picture mission, Canon has also announced free firmware/software upgrades for automated functions such as Push Autofocus, as well as professional-grade ACES pipeline support for color management. Some updates apply to different cameras than others, so check below for more details. More »
