Rental ID: BLACKMAGIC_CINEMA_CAMERA_HIRE
The Blackmagic Cinema Camera brings to the Indie filmmaking scene that crucial 2.5K RAW recording functionality it has so desired, RED, Alexa, they cost mega-money to buy and are out of the reach even to hire for most Indie projects.
The Blackmagic Cinema Camera or BMCC has a 2.5K sensor, EF mount (so you can use our Canon L lenses or Zeiss Distagon/Planar EF primes) and it records 12-bit RAW, 1080p ProRes or DNxHD so all of the bases are covered. You get an amazing 13 stops of dynamic range too, which is a game changer considering what the camera costs to buy/hire.
The RAW is totally RAW, not proprietary RED R3D RAW so the file sizes are pretty serious although we can supply you with extra SSD cards should you need them.
The camera is operated via a touch screen menu system, which will take a little getting used to.
The BMCC is a work in progress, so new features are being added with firmware releases on a monthly basis.
For the money, this camera is amazing and a definite game changer!
