The BlackMagic Micro Cinema Camera MFT Mount is a revolutionary little camera designed to give huge results out of a tiny package. A Super 16mm sensor is mated to a Micro Four-Thirds lens mount similar to the the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera. This gives the camera roughly a 3x crop factor when compared to a full-frame image sensor. What really sets this camera apart from traditional small action cams is the 13 stops of dynamic range and a global shutter at up to 30p! No more jello shutter! If you need higher fps, the traditional rolling shutter can be used up to 60p. HD footage can be recorded to the SD card slot in 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW or 10-bit ProRes flavors. The Micro is powered by Canon LP-E6 batteries, each one lasts about an hour and a half. The Micro also sports a weird "Expansion" port on the side. This unique feature allows you to use many additional features when you want them, but doesn't the burden camera with extra size and weight when you don't. The included breakout cable gives you LANC, DC power, video out, genlock, and 4 analog PWM radio remote control inputs so you can map controls to a joystick for drone use. A 3.5mm stereo audio input, HDMI output, and top and bottom 1/4"-20 mounting points round out this impressive little camera's features. We definitely recommend a monitor with this camera, as you need to frame your shot and change settings before you start rolling. The SmallHD 502 is a wonderful choice.
Just a heads up, this camera will NOT work properly with the 280MB/s cards.
