Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera | Test Footage #2

DOP: Nicholas Swartzendruber / Production Company: Drone Cowboys

The world’s smallest digital film camera with innovative remote control

Introducing the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera, a miniaturized Super 16mm, professional digital film camera that is designed to be operated remotely and capture action anywhere! A revolutionary built in expansion port has PWM and S.Bus inputs so you can use a model airplane remote control to operate the camera wirelessly. Imagine adjusting focus, iris and zoom wirelessly! The Micro Cinema Camera is a true digital film camera that features built in RAW and ProRes recording, 13 stops of dynamic range and an MFT lens mount. You get a true digital film camera that can go where no other digital film camera can.

Get Incredible Action Shots

The digital film camera for action camera shots
The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera is an impossibly small true, professional quality digital film camera that’s perfect for use on quadcopters, as a crash cam, or even hidden on set for reality TV. You can mount it anywhere such as on a skate board or hang glider for spectacular extreme sports shots, to a drone to record panoramic fly overs, or even wear it on a helmet for the most amazing point of view shots! The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera will make your audience say "Wow! How did they get that shot?"

Remote Camera Management

Wireless control of your camera from a safe distance
When you’re mounting the camera on quadcopters, using it as a crash cam or placing it in dangerous locations, you can operate the camera remotely, view a live feed and monitor status, all from a safe distance. The expansion port can be connected to radio control airplane receivers and various camera functions can be mapped to radio channels so you can remotely start and stop recording, adjust focus, change the iris and more! The expansion port also has a composite video output that can be connected to low cost wireless video transmitters for remote monitoring of the camera’s recording status, battery life and audio levels.

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.

Remote Monitoring

Transmit and monitor video wirelessly
The expansion port includes NTSC and PAL composite video output that can be connected to low cost wireless video transmitters for remote monitoring. That means you can see exactly what the camera is recording whether the camera is in the air or hidden on set. For higher quality monitoring, the Micro Cinema Camera also has an HDMI output for wireless HD video transmitters. Both the composite and HDMI outputs can display overlays for camera status, lens settings, file formats, histogram, audio meters, battery life and more.

Super 16mm Sensor

Wide dynamic range digital film sensor
The Super 16 sensor on the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera is full 1080 HD resolution and has an incredible 13 stops of dynamic range! That means you get true digital film quality images because the sensor can capture more information in the bright and dark areas of the image. Unlike DSLR and action-style cameras that are limited to video range which clips highlights and shadows, the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera gives you brighter highlights without clipping, and rich detail in shadows. With an ISO up to 1600 you get great quality, even in locations with low lighting.

Built in RAW and ProRes Recorder

Record using professional formats without ugly compression artifacts
The built in recorder captures true 12-bit log digital film quality images without the artifacts you get on heavily compressed 8-bit H.264 files used on small consumer action and DSLR cameras. Files can be saved in either Cinema DNG RAW or ProRes. Cinema DNG RAW files are 12-bit log and give you all of the data from the camera’s sensor, so you have the latitude to change things like white balance and exposure long after the camera stops rolling. If you need smaller file sizes and longer recording times, you can use ProRes to get broadcast quality images. Both formats can be easily edited and color corrected with the included DaVinci Resolve for Mac and Windows.

Interchangeable Lenses

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.

Expandable Connections

Use mics, monitor video and add custom expansion options
The right side of the Micro Cinema Camera includes a full size HDMI connector for monitoring video output with overlays and embedded audio, along with the expansion port which uses a standard DB-HD15 connector. The expansion port can be used with the included breakout cable or with a custom cable of your own design to give you additional monitoring, control and power options. The left side of the camera houses the SD card slot for recording and also has a high quality 3.5mm stereo input for connecting mic or line level devices.

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.

Professional Sound

High quality audio recording with built in or external microphones
Engineered for high quality audio recording, the built in high quality stereo microphone is omni-directional and features a mechanical design to help reduce unwanted wind noise so you get a clear recording. There’s also a built in 3.5mm input connector so you can plug in directional or wireless clip on microphones. The 3.5mm input jack supports both mic or line level devices and automatically disables the internal mic when an external one is connected. The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera gives you the flexibility to choose the right microphone or audio source for your production!

Battery or External Power

Use removable batteries or DC power sources
For remote recording, you can attach any readily available LP-E6 battery to the back of the camera and place it in all sorts of locations. The battery level is shown in an overlay when the camera is connected to an HDMI display or on the PAL/NTSC video output so you can monitor battery levels even when the camera is operated remotely. There is also an LED on the camera to indicate low battery condition as well as record status. The included breakout cable has a 12V DC input jack so you can use external power supplies or even rig up your own long lasting custom power sources!

Add Popular Accessories

Rig it, mount it and control it anywhere
The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera is compatible with a virtually unlimited number of accessories ranging from interchangeable MFT lenses and lens mount adapters, to quadcopters, battery chargers and more. Two ¼” mounting points on the top and bottom of the camera let you securely rig the camera anywhere and then use wireless HDMI or composite video transmitters for remote monitoring. You can even control the camera using wired LANC accessories or go completely wireless with PWM or S.Bus radio remote control transmitters and receivers or roll your own custom control solution using embedded computers such as Arduino, BasicSTAMP and Raspberry Pi!

Are you eligible for finance?

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older from the application date
  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
    • Not working through disability.
    • Self-employed.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
