Introducing the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera, a miniaturized Super 16mm, professional digital film camera that is designed to be operated remotely and capture action anywhere. A revolutionary built in expansion port has PWM and S.Bus inputs so you can use a model airplane remote control to operate the camera wirelessly. Imagine adjusting focus, iris and zoom wirelessly. The Micro Cinema Camera is a true digital film camera that features built in RAW and ProRes recording, 13 stops of dynamic range and an MFT lens mount. You get a true digital film camera that can go where no other digital film camera can.
Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera Features:
Get Incredible Action Shots:
The digital film camera for action camera shots:
The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera is an impossibly small true, professional quality digital film camera that’s perfect for use on quadcopters, as a crash cam, or even hidden on set for reality TV. You can mount it anywhere such as on a skate board or hang glider for spectacular extreme sports shots, to a drone to record panoramic fly overs, or even wear it on a helmet for the most amazing point of view shots.
Remote Camera Management:
Wireless control of your camera from a safe distance:
When you’re mounting the camera on quadcopters, using it as a crash cam or placing it in dangerous locations, you can operate the camera remotely, view a live feed and monitor status, all from a safe distance. The expansion port can be connected to radio control airplane receivers and various camera functions can be mapped to radio channels so you can remotely start and stop recording, adjust focus, change the iris and more. The expansion port also has a composite video output that can be connected to low cost wireless video transmitters for remote monitoring of the camera’s recording status, battery life and audio levels.
Revolutionary Expansion Port:
Now you can create your own custom camera remote control:
The revolutionary expansion port lets you create custom remote control, external power and monitoring solutions. The included breakout cable gives you access to many of the camera’s unique functions, but you can also create your own custom cables that open the camera up to do even more. In addition to things like LANC, power, video out, and genlock, you also get 4 analog PWM radio remote control inputs so you can map camera functions to the dials, knobs, buttons and joysticks on model airplane remotes. For even more control with greater precision, you can use the 18 channel S.Bus control input with Futaba radio control equipment or custom embedded controllers.
Transmit and monitor video wirelessly:
The expansion port includes NTSC and PAL composite video output that can be connected to low cost wireless video transmitters for remote monitoring. That means you can see exactly what the camera is recording whether the camera is in the air or hidden on set. For higher quality monitoring, the Micro Cinema Camera also has an HDMI output for wireless HD video transmitters. Both the composite and HDMI outputs can display overlays for camera status, lens settings, file formats, histogram, audio meters, battery life and more.
Super 16mm Sensor:
Wide dynamic range digital film sensor:
The Super 16 sensor on the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera is full 1080 HD resolution and has an incredible 13 stops of dynamic range. That means you get true digital film quality images because the sensor can capture more information in the bright and dark areas of the image. Unlike DSLR and action-style cameras that are limited to video range which clips highlights and shadows, the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera gives you brighter highlights without clipping, and rich detail in shadows. With an ISO up to 1600 you get great quality, even in locations with low lighting.
Built in RAW and ProRes Recorder:
Record using professional formats without ugly compression artifacts:
The built in recorder captures true 12-bit log digital film quality images without the artifacts you get on heavily compressed 8-bit H.264 files used on small consumer action and DSLR cameras. Files can be saved in either Cinema DNG RAW or ProRes. Cinema DNG RAW files are 12-bit log and give you all of the data from the camera’s sensor, so you have the latitude to change things like white balance and exposure long after the camera stops rolling. If you need smaller file sizes and longer recording times, you can use ProRes to get broadcast quality images. Both formats can be easily edited and colour corrected with the included DaVinci Resolve for Mac and Windows.
High quality audio recording with built in or external microphones:
Engineered for high quality audio recording, the built in high quality stereo microphone is omni-directional and features a mechanical design to help reduce unwanted wind noise so you get a clear recording. There’s also a built in 3.5mm input connector so you can plug in directional or wireless clip on microphones. The 3.5mm input jack supports both mic or line level devices and automatically disables the internal mic when an external one is connected. The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera gives you the flexibility to choose the right microphone or audio source for your production.
