This is the PL Mount version for use with PL Mount Cinema Lenses.
The Blackmagic Cinema Camera have been designed from the ground up as an elegant solution for cinematographers who are making feature films, music videos and TV commercials. The incredible super 35mm sensor renders true cinematic images on what Blackmagic call digital film, to broadcast standards such as Apple ProRes422 and CinemaDNG RAW. The minimal crop factor of the Blackmagic Design Cinema Cameras lets you shoot with super wide angle lenses so you get images that are big and beautiful, plus have the dynamic range to capture highlight and shadow details far beyond that of any traditional video camera.
The Blackmagic Design Cinema Cameras offer stunning colours and shallow depth of field
You can choose between models with PL, EF or MFT lens mounts so you can use the world’s best and most technically sophisticated lenses. The PL models allow you to use, or even rent, professional cinema lenses from companies such as Panavision, ARRI or Zeiss. You can even use vintage PL cinema lenses when you’re shooting period work where you want to recreate the look of that time by using the actual lens they used back in those days! The EF models let you use high resolution Canon photographic lenses for amazing quality, while the passive MFT model allows super small lenses and the flexibility to adapt to other lens mounts.
The Blackmagic Cinema Cameras have been precision engineered from machined metal and miniaturized using the latest advanced electronics to deliver a rugged digital film camera that has the strength to be rigged even when supporting a heavy PL mount lens. Unlike most cameras that use plastic, the machined metal design of the Blackmagic Cinema Cameras can be hand held, rigged on cranes, used on steadycams and more. The super small design still includes an SSD recorder capable of recording RAW, touchscreen LCD, internal active cooling for the cinematic sensor and standard SDI, audio and Thunderbolt connections.
