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?”
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.
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.
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.
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!
