UK Dealer: 4K Blackmagic Production Camera Shipping This Month!

3D Broadcast Sales at Pinewood Studios in the UK claim that the long-awaited 4K for $4K Blackmagic Production Camera will start shipping in January 2014.  After Blackmagic CEO Grant Petty's "shipping this quarter [Q4 2013]" quote a few weeks ago, let's hope this isn't another false alarm.

Hopefully, CVP in the UK and stateside dealers such as B&H and Adorama will get their cameras in soon and start filling customer pre-orders.

I am really looking forward to seeing what this camera can do once it's out in the marketplace and in the hands of the thousands of creatives who couldn't afford a 4K Super 35 camera until now.

Remember when $4000 was an exciting price for a large-sensor interchangeable lens 1080p Panasonic AF100?  Seems like a very long time ago.

As always, if anything here has helped you to make a buying decision, please use the links embedded above or the display ads below to order.

And even if you're not in the market for a cinema camera right now, please support our sponsors - Adorama, Amazon, BorrowLenses, CoolLCD, DigitalRev, uBid, Vimeo, the the Warner Brothers Shop and others whose display ads you see in the margins.

It won't cost you anything extra, and it will help to keep these blog posts coming.  Thanks so much!

  1. These people are either lying or mistaken. If you go to the Black Magic Cinema Camera Forums, you will see that this claim is very suspect. Someone made a further inquiry by emailing 3dbroadcastsales, none of them know when it is being shipped. BMC continues to be un forth coming about their dealings with the public, its all a bunch of smoke and vagaries
