Blackmagic has unveiled a new version of its Cinema Camera with a Micro Four Thirds lens mount.  It will carry the same $2995 price as the Canon EF mount version and will be available in December.

This is a good move on Blackmagic’s part because the sensor crop has been the biggest limitation for the Canon EF mount.  A Micro Four Thirds mount puts the camera into a range of lenses that are more appropriate focal lengths for its sensor size.

Blackmagic Cinema Camera

Blackmagic Design, maker of the very popular and affordable Blackmagic Cinema Camera, apparently has something up its sleeve for tomorrow morning.  That is, if tonight’s tweet from Andy Shipsides (Camera Tech & Training Department Manager at AbelCine) has any credence to it.

IBC 2012 kicked off today and there is a lot of pro video news coming out of the convention over the past few days.  Of course, Blackmagic makes a lot of products that aren’t quite as sexy as the BMCC, but we’ll be keeping an eye on it regardless.  Check back Friday morning to see what’s up.

[UPDATE:  It's a Micro Four Thirds mount version of the BMCC.]

The Canon EOS C300 cinema camera recently made history when it was used to shoot “Departure Date,” the first movie almost entirely shot on airliners in flight.  The 24-minute short film was shot over 9 days across 3 continents covering 28,000 miles while flying at 35,000 feet on planes carrying real passengers.

Sounds like a recipe for disaster…

Somehow though, they made it work and the film premiered at the L.A. Film Festival on June 17, 2012.
