Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K Review

The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K took NAB 2018 by storm. It really was the talk of the show and everyone prior to it was hoping for an update and they got it. The camera is now shipping but it’s not available in large quantities yet. Demand is high and production doesn’t look to be matching it. While this seems to be an issue with Blackmagic I thought they solved this with the release of the URSA Mini Pro but the Pocket 4K seems to be business as usual when it comes to delivery.

Atomos Ninja V hands-on review

The Atomos Ninja V was announced back in April, just prior to the NAB show. At that time we were unable to see the 5.2″ HDMI monitor/recorders 1000 nit screen and new user interface, as the device was still in the early stages of development. Even though Erik had some hands-on time with a pre-production version of the Ninja V, I thought we should do our due diligence and do a full review of a production model.
