I currently use a Canon Rebel T2i to shoot corporate and music videos. It’s very serviceable for high quality video footage. And if you’re good with color correction in Final Cut Pro or some other editing software, then you’ve got what you need to make things happen. But still, there’s always that ‘next level’ you can move up to. I really want to start making a movies. Getting that ‘film’ look out of your video usually takes some tweaking when using a DSLR. They’re basically still image camera’s that happen to shoot video. Luckily there’s the Blackmagic Cinema line of cameras that are built to be digital film-friendly.
I’ve had my eye on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera. It’s basically a compact version of their awesome Blackmagic Cinema Camera. It has some limitations, of course. It’s now as versatile as a DSLR. It’s built for one thing. Shooting at 35mm, which means that any lens you use will be cropped to accommodate that style. But that’s easy to work around. It’s had adapters to use Canon lenses so you won’t have to start from scratch if you were using something like a Rebel or Mark III.
Seriously, all i need is this little camera shooting in flat color. Priced under $1000, it hits that sweet price spot for those who couldn’t afford getting at Mark III or similar full frame camera. Watch the selected video review for a good list of good and bad things about the Pocket Cinema.
