The blackmagic pocket cinema camera may look like a small, mirrorless, still camera, but we all know that looks can be deceiving... In 2012, blackmagic design wowed us with its standard-sized blackmagic cinema camera which set new standards in image quality and color reproduction at an unprecedented price point. This year, blackmagic design is pushing the limits again, this time bringing us a miniaturized version, the blackmagic pocket cinema camera, that promises the same 13 stops of dynamic range as its big brother, but in a much smaller and lighter package.
The blackmagic pocket cinema camera uses a super 16 size sensor and an active micro four thirds lens mount to take full hd 1080p video using the robust prores 422 codec. Support for the lossless cinemadng raw codec is coming soon. This combination of the sensor and codecs brings up to 13-stops of dynamic range, giving you much more detail in shadows and highlights than you might get with other dlsrs
