blackmagicThanks to the advancement of technology these days, snapping photos and grabbing high quality videos are no longer limited to bulky devices. In fact capturing Full HD videos on phones these days has become more or less a standard feature, a feature which a few years ago would have cost customers a small fortune to own. Now if you’re a video enthusiast looking to capture videos on the go with a small and discreet device, Blackmagic Design has announced a pocket-sized 1080p video camera called the Pocket Cinema Camera. This device, according to its manufacturer, promises to be capable of 422 ProRes capture with lossless CinemaDNG which will be added via its firmware.

The device will use a Super 16 imaging area, an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount, and will cost customers $995. Blackmagic Design has also stated that the Pocket Cinema camera will be available for purchase in July. Capturing ProRes footage at 220Mbps, it is estimated that it will be able to record 50 minutes of footage with a 64GB SDXC card, microphone and headphone sockets, and support for tripod mounting. $995 does seem a little expensive and we guess for those who aren’t too fussed, a regular mirrorless camera should do just fine.
