BlackmagicHuge price reduction for Blackmagic Cinema Camera

Sensational news: A $1000 price reduction for the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Includes those already ordered. John Burkhart reports for RedShark

Grant Petty sent out an email today touching on a variety of different topics. He claimed that the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera was now shipping, and as reported earlier, the Blackmagic Production Cinema 4k's release will be pushed back 3 or 4 more weeks.

But probably the biggest announcement in the email was a massive price reduction on their current Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Both EF and MFT mount BMC cameras have $1,000 taken off the price! You can get either camera now for only $1,995 (yesterday they were $2,995). This price will also be honored if your order has not been filled yet.

 

The direct quote from the email:

Blackmagic Cinema Camera Price Reduction

We have worked very hard over the last year to be able to build the Blackmagic Cinema Camera at a lower cost so we can reduce the price and allow access to digital filming to a wide range of cinematographers and photographers.

We have done it and from today the Blackmagic Cinema Camera EF and MFT models will be reduced in price to US$1,995. This is very exciting and is one of the proudest moments of my life to be able to do this!

I think people will be able to use the savings to invest in some exciting lenses and rigs to really boost the creative possibilities. The Blackmagic Cinema Camera is a fantastic design that's now well proven. The advantage of the 2.5K sensor is it has enough resolution to eliminate the bayer resolution loss of a HD sensor, but when shooting RAW it produces files that are too not to big to store and work with easily. It's a fantastic solution.

All orders placed that have not yet been filled, can be reduced to the new lower price.
