The Blackmagic Cinema Camera may not come cheap but it does try to offer independent film makers high quality results for a reasonable price. Priced at $2,995, it is reasonable enough if the quality it provides is taken into consideration.

The Blackmagic Cinema Camera was among the small number of video cameras that were announced during the National Association Broadcasters event or the NAB 2012. It offers professional film quality results to users who may be watching their finances.

The features on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera include a 2.5k high-res sensor, super-wide dynamic range, along with full compatibility with a number lenses with the Zeiss ZF and Canon EF mounts. Direct metadata entry can be made directly on the five-inch touchscreen of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, which also offers a number of settings including the shutter angle, frame rate, dynamic range, focus assist and color temperature.

The Blackmagic Cinema Camera also features the standard line audio-in jack, headphone, BNC 3Gbps SDI out, LANC remote control, Thunderbolt, and a standard 12-30V DC power connection. No proprietary ports are used on this upcoming device from Blackmagic.

Open file formats that are compatible with NLE software including Avid DNxHD, CinemaDNG 12-bit raw and Apple ProRes are supported by the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. A solid state drive stores the recorded material which meets the demands of long duration compressed video and raw video capture.

The Blackmagic Cinema Camera will reportedly be released into the market by July.
