*Watch in HD (Please Share, would mean A LOT)
This Review was made my own time and it took A LOT of time for the readers of my blog.
This video wasn’t meant to make you decide if you would get the camera or not, this is a short documentary that covers the importance of raw and resolution and where the blackmagic camera really fits in. Further specs and features are your assignments to find out and decide. This review is based on my opinion and the interviewee’s ideas on the camera. Enjoy!
*The Camera is the first generation EF Mount, with upgraded firmware for aperture reading.

Personal Thoughts on the Camera : We all know this camera got us excited as filmmakers and I am such honored to try this out and make a review out of it. I had the camera with me for 4 days and I really got to understand this tool. From the form factor itself as a camera, it was very odd to hold and feel like a video camera; unlike the dslrs, it has no grip that can make it easier to use in handheld purposes. However, I believe it’s the matter of getting used with it since I found it comfortable to use on the last day using this camera. I like the fact that it offers what basic production needs to make a great video. Raw is Great; however how will the transition look like to those who suffer from budget issues? But also, you can choose to record in ProRes or DNxHD. As said in the video, this camera will still have to go through some stages to meet my expectations and with your help, they will improve drastically. Just can’t wait for this upcoming NAB on what they will release to surprise us again!
