Revolutionary products from Blackmagic naturally available in our shop
Blackmagic is a specialist for first-class film scanners and products for film production and post-production. The very efficient Blackmagic codecs are, for example, very well known. Already in 2002, Blackmagic made the working of uncompressed 10-Bit video material on a Macintosh OS X(TM) system possible almost single-handedly at an affordable price with the DeckLink-Capture-Card.
Another important product from the company is the Blackmagic Cinema Camera with an intuitively operable touch screen display and the possibility of use with Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lenses.
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K was one of the first cameras to support 4K recordings. Its full-format sensor allows a full 4K resolution at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is characterised by its compact design and records film material directly onto SD cards in full HD resolution.
