Blackmagic Studio Camera - What lens-options are there?
I am looking at buying a live-video setup with 3 cameras, an BMD ATEM and some other accessories - but I´m struggling with camera-choice. I would love to go for the new BMD Studio Cameras (https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/blackmagicstudiocamera), but I can´t find any affordable lens that covers a proper zoom-range. Alternatives are prosumer-camcorders like the Sony HXR-NX5P (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/750887-REG/Sony_HXR_NX5P_HXR_NX5P_...), but with that You wouldn´t have the integrated CCU-Control over the ATEM, no integrated Intercom & Tally-Solution and You wouldn´t have the image quality of the BMD Studio Camera.
I´d love to hear if anyone is using the BMD Studio Camera, and with what lenses, and what other things I have to think of.
Thanks in advance!
