With the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera starting to ship any day now for $995 and the 4K Production Camera available later this month at $3995, Blackmagic Design has dropped the price on its original Cinema Camera to $1995 (down from $2995).

Many people consider the camera to be quite the bargain at $2999, so the $1000 price drop should up the value even further. You can find the price drops already in effect on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera here at B&H Photo and here at Adorama.

Switronix Bringing Power Accessories to the Blackmagic Cinema Camera?

Blackmagic Cinema Camera

HDSLR and cinema accessory provider Switronix sent out a little tease in its newsletter today about the Blackmagic Cinema Camera that’s shipping later this month.

Are you guys as excited as we are about this beautiful, little guy?

Check in this month to see the cool accessories we have developed for the Black Magic Camera.  -Switronix Newsletter

Switronix has been known for its HDSLR power accessories that so effectively pair cameras like the 5D Mark II with external battery packs, as well as on-camera lighting gear.  Given the uncertainty thus far about the Blackmagic Cinema Camera’s internal battery and lack of external power options, I’d say that an external power solution from Switronix is a good bet.

Stay tuned for the official announcement of whatever is coming from Switronix…
