Some of our readers might remember the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera we featured here on Geeky Gadgets back in April of this year, that featured a 2.5K RAW format recording.
Now Blackmagic Design the creators and developers of the cinema camera, have announced via the Blackmagic Forums that the camera are now shipping.
The Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera is now available to purchase for $3,000 and is shipping in small quantities to start, with production slowly increasing over the coming months. Joshua Helling explained on the Blackmagic Forums:
“Just wanted to jump on here and give a heads up. The cameras are shipping now. The initial shipment was rather small, smaller than we would have liked. This will change as our part supply ramps up. Once that happens production will ramp up and we will be able to deliver many more cameras at a time.
However, it is worth noting, we still have a bit of a back order to get through so it may still take some time to get your unit.
Rest assured that once we get ramped up, we will not simply be shipping five BCC’s at the a time. Without getting into too much detail, B&H did get only a handful on their first shipment, and the rest went to some of our OTHER dealers in our channel.
So…we totally understand your guys excitement to get your cameras. Just rest assured we are working as hard as possible to get them to you quickly.”Filed Under: Camera News
