    The Blackmagic Cinema Camera EF is one of the world's finest digital film cameras with a beautiful design that features a machined aluminum chassis, interchangeable optics using EF compatible lens mount, high resolution 2.5K sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range and 12-bit RAW uncompressed and compressed ProRes and DNxHD file formats! Includes sun shield, power supply, carry strap, UltraScope waveform monitoring software and a full version of DaVinci Resolve Software for Mac OS X and Windows.

    Add the timeless beauty of feature film quality to your production work with the BMCC!
    Elegant, sophisticated and jam packed with the latest digital cinema technology, Blackmagic Cinema Camera gives your work that timeless feature film look! Blackmagic Cinema Camera features an amazing 2.5K image sensor with a wide 13 stops of dynamic range for a true digital film camera. You get a built-in SSD recorder, popular open standard uncompressed RAW and compressed file formats, compatibility with quality EF and ZE mount lenses(not included), LCD touchscreen monitoring plus metadata entry, all packed into an exciting hand held design!

    Move to Digital Film
    Blackmagic Cinema Camera features a high resolution sensor with wide dynamic range so it's perfect for independent film, television commercials and episodic television production. DaVinci Resolve software for Mac and Windows is included so you can work at the highest quality and get the best results. Blackmagic Cinema Camera is both affordable and a complete solution because it includes a built-in recorder and monitoring, so it's perfect for displacing video-only cameras for work such as sporting events, weddings, music videos and more!

    13 Stop Dynamic Range
    Regular video cameras clip video so you are locked into images that look cheap. Blackmagic Cinema Camera eliminates this problem as it captures a super wide dynamic range of 13 stops into 12-bit DNG files, so your images look truly cinematic. This preserves detail in both shadows and highlights, and even handles indoor shots while keeping the details of any images captured through windows. This means you keep all sensor data so you can make creative decisions during DaVinci Resolve color grading!


    Built-in SSD Recorder
    Blackmagic Cinema Camera features a built-in SSD recorder that allows 2.5K uncompressed CinemaDNG RAW 12-bit capture as well as Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD compressed video formats. All file formats are open standard and used by NLE software so you get the only camera designed from the ground up to be part of a whole post production workflow! When you've finished shooting, simply connect the SSD to your computer and edit or color your shots straight from the disk!

            Would be good to have a option for an external trigger to enable adjustable (slower) frame rate. But otherwise a great piece of gear.
