Should I Buy This?We love Blackmagic Design. They keep rocking the market by designing products that shatter the price wall. The quality you can achieve with their line of cinema cameras truly empowers smaller budget film makers. What we truly love is how they make their products compatible with affordable accessories, like standard SD cards, faster UHS-II cards or CFast 2.0 cards, and the fact that they can record straight onto an external hard drive for larger projects. It uses an affordable and removable LP-E6 Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery that you can purchase for $35! Its MFT Lens Mount lets you use a large range of small, professional lenses that range from affordable to out of this world expensive. Lenses by brands like Canon, Nikon, Leica and Panavision. It also includes a license to DeVinci Resolve 15. With that said, would we suggest that you purchase this camera? Probably not. Why? While it is great tech, you probably don’t need it. You could use a similarly priced mirrorless by Sony, and still get a phenomenal shot with less hassle in the post production. Who would we suggest this camera for? Independent filmmakers making arthouse films. It will deliver a cinema style look that will contrast the common place DSLR’s and match professional cameras that cost 20x as much. This is where its incredible dynamic range will really shine bright.
