Arri AMIRA

Full information on the AMIRA can be seen at CVP

Looking at the Oscar nominations recently at EOSHD, with not a Red camera in sight, it’s clear Arri are a run-away success in the filmmaking industry. Now Arri are gunning for the Canon C300 and C500 with a camera which could seriously erode the market for Cinema EOS cameras at the high end of the broadcast and single-operator videographer market.

SlashCAM here in Berlin have been putting their expertise to work on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. They also had the opportunity to compare their regular test shots with new shots from the Blackmagic. As you can see in the example after the break, the blacks are far cleaner in post than material shot on the Canon C300.

SlashCAM have tested an enormous range of camcorders and cameras over the last 10 years. Here they’ve tested all the important aspects of the BMCC’s performance in detail, such as rolling shutter, dynamic range, etc.
