    Sensor Size very similar to the NIKON 1 which is 13.2 x 8.8. BMDCC is 15.6 x 8.8 (15.6 sounds like Diagonal)

    EF mount gives a low cost lens option choice. They plan to do PL mount and possible m4/3 down the road. There are some lovely wide m4/3 lenses.


    Re; judder and panning - "Following the bird across the ocean looks a bit jerky but can’t tell if that’s playback…? Any other moving frame tests?" - That was shot from a monopod on a 90mm prime (eff is close to 200mm)

    It’s a once in a lifetime chance to be involved with something as big as this. I was approached in late 2011 to be a part of something that every cinematographer dreams of…building a new camera.

    Read John's thorough testing here :

    I think they’ve easily given us a better alternative to the dSLR cameras out there for most shooting situations. The RAW workflow and the uncompressed recording means you’re not loosing anything.

    Really, what Blackmagic have done is amazing. They’ve given us an ultra compact sexy-as-hell 2.5K RAW uncompressed camera, with world leading colour correction software for three thousand bucks.

    Are there others currently testing out the camera? I would love to see other real world footage.

    Looks killer. I saw a few artefacts, but that's undoubtedly the Vimeo compression. The dynamic range is stunning.
