Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 1080p compact video camera. Shoots ProRes and Raw (if your brave). Amazing image quality however for best results you should know how to colour grade (DaVinici Resolve is available in the lab). Audio and auto functions are very limited. Good for experimental work, run and gun style shooting, and visual documentary work. Good idea to use a Tascam/Zoom audio recorder, if you want usable sound. Year 3+
Black Magic Cinema Camera 4K professional camera with EF mount, very good for studio or well organised location shoots. Requires a high level of competency both in production and post production. Many ‘bot-on’ attachments required (e.g. Audio, power, monitoring, focus, etc). Masters+
