- Bob Caniglia:Â Live Demo NewÂ Blackmagic Cinema Camera
Joining us from Blackmagic Design will be Bob Caniglia, who will lead off the evening with an engaging conversation on the new Blackmagic Cinema Camera . Bob will share with us the driving forces behind the decision to build a camera; what the Blackmagic Cinema Camera brings to the table, and differentiating features and functionalities of the camera itself.
The new Blackmagic Cinema Camera features a high resolution sensor with wide dynamic range so itâ€™s perfect for independent film, television commercials and episodic television production. DaVinci Resolve software for Macâ„¢ and Windowsâ„¢ is included with the camera so you can work at the highest quality and get the best results. Blackmagic Cinema Camera is both affordable and a complete solution because it includes a built-in recorder and monitoring, so itâ€™s perfect for displacing video-only cameras for work such as sporting events, weddings, music videos and more.
There will be a Q&A session following Bob's presentation.
