Among the great camera discussions, Blackmagic Design has brought forth some unique topics, workflow being one of them. The Blackmagic Studio Camera and seeks to dispel the notion that broadcast cameras are the only ones well-suited for live production. Even then, with so many variables in live production (for reference, in all of our webcasts we've had different setups each and every time), we can't name many cameras that are really built just for live production.
Blackmagic beta tester, John Brawley, is back with more footage from the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. This time, John took the Blackmagic out on a rainy night in Sydney, Australia. The footage was shot at 800 and 1600 ISO with a variety of lenses. The results are stunning.

Videomaker's Best Camcorder of NAB 2013 is the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. The team at Blackmagic Design has been hard at work preparing the release of the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. We may begin with this one by looking at the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, which looks virtually the same save for a 4K insignia.
Blackmagic Design seems to know how to push our buttons, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K are sure to make many people very happy, both producers and viewers alike. "Exciting" hardly seems to do it justice when we hear that a pocket camera will have a Super 16mm size 1080 sensor that can grab 13 stops of dynamic range, capture CinemaDNG RAW and an SD card recorder for Apple ProRes. The second button Blackmagic Design is pressing is for the producer in all of us, get a load of the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. This camera is a 4k digital film camera with a Super 35 sensor, a global shutter and 6G-SDI for live productions. The large sensor size will allow for a minimal crop factor leading to truly wide shots with wide angle lenses, and there's still the ability to shoot good old HD, zoomed in, without degradation. The EF lens mount will make many interchangeable lens owners pleased.
