Rick Young on location with the Blackmagic 4K Production Camera, shooting in a variety of situations, testing out this camera to see just what it is really capable of.
The Blackmagic Production Camera represents an affordable way into the world of 4K. The camera records Ultra HD images at the frame size of 3840 × 2160, using Apple’s ProRes (HQ). RAW recording will soon be enabled on this camera.
The small form of the Production Camera makes this useful for the single person who needs to move quick and acquire high quality images. The benefit of recording the higher resolution of 4K are very quickly apparent for those currently producing HD – when working with the 4K footage within an HD Timeline one can pan and scan across the Ultra HD image, and zoom within the frame.
This makes this camera ideal for the person looking to capture 4K with a small, portable, easy to use camera!
