Blackmagic-Design-Announces-the-Crazy-Small-Pocket-Cinema-Camera

Today at NAB 2013, BlackMagic Design unveiled two new cameras, the Production Camera 4K and the Pocket Cinema Camera.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera for $995 packs in a Super-16 sensor, and it’s capable of recording full 1080p HD video in RAW format. The camera also features 13 stops of dynamic range. Users will be able to slap on their existing Olympus and Panasonic lenses, since the Pocket Cinema Camera utilizes an active micro four thirds mount.

The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K for $3995 shoots in 4K resolution (meaning four-times the resolution of full 1080p HD). This camera sports a Super-35 sensor with native 4K video support, as well as a built-in SSD recorder. The camera also supports compressed CinemaDNG RAW and compatibility with traditional EF lenses for those who want to play around with different glass.

B&H is now offering both cameras for pre-ordering with expected availability sometime in July.
