Why I am cautiously (extremely!) optimistic about Black Magic Design’s Cinema Camera for underwater use.

Rudi Herbert September 4, 2012

It should be no news by now that Black Magic Design (BMD), the Australian company that got its start in our industry as a producer of capture cards, and which recently has gone on a acquisition binge that absorbed names like Da Vinci, Cintel, ATEM and Teranex, has further broadened its profile by stealing the show at NAB… Continue Reading »
