Immense cinematic quality and lightweight portability have finally been combined in one neat package – the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera offers unprecedented results never before seen! Featuring a Super 16mm sized sensor and internal RAW and ProRes recording, the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera delivers top-of-the-line image quality with 13 stops of dynamic range. A global shutter insures no “jello” effect in your footage. The built-in expansion port offers PWM and S.Bus inputs for wireless remote control over your settings (including zoom, aperture, and focus). This camera is perfect for action situations and can be mounted to drones, car mounts, and helmets for the most unique shots possible!
Extremely Customizable Design
The world’s smallest completely open and customizable camera
The design of the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera combines advanced miniaturization and a unique expansion port in a digital film camera that lets you create personalized rigs for remote operation and monitoring. The camera body is not much larger than the Micro Four Thirds lens mount making it as small as a camera with a professional lens can be. Its core is made out of a lightweight and strong magnesium alloy that makes it durable enough to shoot anywhere, from the ocean floor to the stratosphere or beyond! You can control the Micro Cinema Camera directly from the front buttons when it’s mounted, or remotely when it’s out of reach.
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.
Use a wide range of lightweight professional photo lenses
The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera features an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount so you can use high performance photographic lenses including wide angle, primes, standard zooms, telephotos and more. That means you’re not stuck with a built in lens and can choose the best lens for the job! The focus, iris and zoom on active MFT lenses can be controlled remotely from the camera’s expansion port. Many MFT lenses also have built in optical image stabilization, making them perfect for use in places where there might be a lot of movement, shocks or vibration.
Easy Camera Settings
Front panel buttons to quickly change settings
You can quickly adjust camera settings using the row of buttons located on the front of the camera. Because they’re on the front, the buttons are always accessible, whether the camera is strapped to your body or mounted in tight locations. Camera settings are displayed on screen using the HDMI or composite video output. You also get power, record, stop, fast forward and rewind buttons, along with an LED light on top that shows recording status and has memory card and low battery warning indicators.
