Blackmagic Design does a lot of things well, and theBlackmagic Cinema Camerais going to join the compliment of mixing software, 3D processors, hubs, and converters as another fine product. The quality of this high-end camera is in the compliment of Canon's EF-mount and Zeiss ZF lenses, 2.5K (2592x2192) resolution and uncompressed file formats.
The form is strangely similar to other Blackmagic Design products with solid, rounded edges forming a sort of DSLR prism. Or you could say it appears similar to an external SSD, but wait, that's it, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera records directly to SSD! The 5-inch touch LCD screen takes on a bulk of your usage since the external buttons are minimal. The sides of the camera house the removable SSD and the assortment of connections for the likes of an external mic, headphones and Thunderbolt.
