The Blackmagic Cinema Camera can clearly be called revolutionary, combining the broad dynamic range and color depth of expensive film and digital cinema cameras at an affordable price.
The Blackmagic Cinema Camera is poised to launch another revolution for the budget-minded video producer.

Shooting in the RAW
The full version of DaVinci Resolve is very powerful color correction and grading software. It is used by many of the top film studio colorists, so to get the most out of it you will need to do some homework. The included PDF manual touches on most of the key features and there are plenty of free and paid tutorials online. There is also a very capable Resolve Lite version that is free. The basic workflow includes importing the raw footage and applying one or more nodes in which you make color and exposure changes, targeting specific colors for adjustment or adding advanced features like auto-tracking subjects for special treatment.
