We were so very excited when we ordered our Blackmagic Cinema Camera, but now we are learning a lesson in patience. Blackmagic went in to large scale production of the cameras, but then realized there was a problem with the glass on the sensors. Grant Petty, the CEO of Blackmagic released a statement about it that you can read here if you are interested.
Since they’ve found the problem and the cause, we’re all hoping that production will resume quickly and that beautiful aluminum camera body will be in our hands soon.
While we’re all waiting, check out this video comparing the Blackmagic camera to the 5D Mark III.
