When Blackmagic’s newest product fails, it’s time to rethink the future of cinemas
Posted On July 6, 2021
It’s been more than a decade since the original Blackmagic Cinema Camera, which launched in 2005, launched with a $200 price tag.
The camera’s image quality, the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi and the price tag made it one of the most expensive consumer electronics in the world.
But over time, the Cinema Camera went from a $20 product to a $50 one.
That meant a lot of people had to go into the black and spend a lot more money to get the best picture possible.
Now that the latest iteration of the Cinema Cameras has been launched in September, it looks like we’re headed back to the black.
The new Cinema Camera S is priced at $50, down from the original Cinema Camera.
However, if you want to spend less money, you can now pick up the Cinema Cams new Blackmagic DSC-D10, which features a built- in Wi-fi and a 1080p, 2560×1440 resolution camera, all at a fraction of the cost.
The Cinema Cameras new camera also has a faster processor and an improved camera app that can take pictures in HDR.
That means you can use the Cinema CAM as a standalone projector and use it to take stunning, high-definition photos.
And if you don’t want to go the full $50 upgrade route, you still get the full-featured Cinema Camera and Cinema Camera 2, which will come with a 1080i, 2540×1480 resolution and an additional 10 megapixel sensor, and can shoot up to 25 frames per second.
It’ll be the last Cinema Camera that will ship until 2019, when Blackmagic will release a new camera with a 4K camera that will be priced at a similar price point.
