This year at NAB, Blackmagic Design released a bunch of updated products. From 8K Studio ATEM boxes, to full control panels, and even a keyboard that was designed for production and editing. I talked with Bob, and we went down the line.
Of course, I was more focued on cameras, and with the release of the Pocket Cinema 4K, interested in the accessories they have to offer.
Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema 4K Battery Pack
This accessory allows for up to 2 hours of production time. The pack is similar to a Canon pack – remove the door, and slide the battery shoe in. The pack now will take the Sony MP-F750 style battery, but will also accept two.
The door on the pack is on the side, so if you’re camera is on a tripod, you don’t have to remove the camera to change batteries.
The battery grip will be out in Aug for $245. Pre-Order Here.
URSA Mini 4.6K G2
If you’re looking to improve your video, Blackmagic Design has the new G2 coming soon. It’s got a 4.6K HDR CMOS sensor, which can do up to 120 fps (or 3000 fps in 1080p). 15 stops of dynamic range at 32000 ISO, and records on 2 x CFast 2.0 card slots or 2 x SDXC UHS-II card slots.
This mini 4.6K G2 records RAW 12-bit, ProRes 4444XQ 4:4:4 10-bit, ProRes 422HQ 4:2:2 10-bit, or through USB or SDI outputs to a recorder or streaming device.
