The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera Is a Tiny Super16 RAW Camera Built for Drones
The news about Blackmagic Design's upcoming camera announcements just keeps rolling in.
We've already seen that Blackmagic will be announcing an URSA Mini tomorrow with a smaller form factor, an impressive new 4.6K s35 sensor, and 15 stops of dynamic range, but the second camera was still an elusive one. Until now. In a tweet from Zak Forsman, we're introduced to the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera:
The camera, which features a Super16 sensor (the same as the BMPCC?) and 13 stops of dynamic range, looks to be specifically designed for use with drones thanks to built in RAW recording and some UAV-centric features. It's hard to tell from the photo, but we could also be looking at Blackmagic's first drone as well. If that were the case, no doubt they would give DJI a run for their money.
No word on the resolution, price, or availability of the Micro Cinema Camera yet, but we will almost certainly know more tomorrow.
