Shipping thread - Blackmagic Cinema Camera

Recommended Posts

Here in Italy various dealers told me the camera will be ready to ship on sept. 15th.
They are also telling me I'd better order it because if I don't it will take a long time before I get one.

Price here is 2999 euro...pretty expensive

why it is so expensive?

why it is so expensive?

It's not expensive. All of its competition is priced >$10K.  Black magic does not have any high end products to protect, and/or they aren't involved in any collusive shenanigans with the other major manufacturers; therefore, they can produce a camera that undercuts all of the competition by thousands of dollars. 

 

It would be nice if you could actually by one in a store though  :blink:.

Not sure what Helen is questioning (see my next post) but I find that when it comes to pricing a lot of consumers need to get a clue. They'd happily spend 1000 euros on a TV which makes movies look like digital sick, but a mini Alexa artistic tool is 'too expensive' at 3000 euros.
