In the 1st part our 4th episode, I talked to Stuart Ashton from Blackmagic Design and Jihua Zheng from Kinefinity. Jihua talked about their new camera offerings, the Kinemini 4K and the Kinemax 6K.
Stuart explained their new cameras, the URSA and the Blackmagic Studio Camera. I tried to find out when existing Blackmagic users can expect firmware updates for such essential functions such as formatting cards or deleting clips. We also talked about their controversial strategy to announce new cameras before the existing models started shipping in volume, and the quality control problems we encountered with their 4K camera sensors (watch Sebastian’s review of the Blackmagic Production 4K Camera here).
The 2nd part of episode 4 will be published soon too, and there we will have representatives from Sony and Canon sitting on the same couch and discussing their new product offerings – stay tuned!
