Blackmagic Casting a Spell
By Ian Karr
The new Blackmagic cinema camera is getting a lot of attention. Offering 2.5K resolution for a 3K price tag, this could be really cool. I hope the images it generates look better than the camera itself...it's channeling a 1990's era Kodak digital camera. But hey...I love retro.
To me, Blackmagic has become the "Apple" of the video tool/converter space. AJA is showing great stuff as always...but their culture seems decidedly more "tech" than creative.
