Cinematographer Frank Clairn talks candidly to BlackmagicUser.net about his experiences with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera which he has been using to create a series of short documentaries. He says, "It’s poaching in Alexa and Scarlet territory for a DSLR price - you can’t beat that...Of course there where some quirks to sort out in firmware but most of it is already done. I hope with the next update, that we should see soon, the camera should be ready for prime-time. In my first article [right after NAB 2012] I talked about some ergonomic problems the future users are gonna run into, and most of it still stands; All the plugs are on the wrong side, glossy screen, and what not. However for the image I get out of the BMCC I’m happy to work around all that."
