Not to be confused with the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6k with Super 35 sensor and Canon EF mount, the L-mount camera in question raised the bar for filmmakers on a budget with its full-frame sensor and open gate 6K video in Blackmagic RAW 12-bit codec – plus seamless integration with Davinci Resolve. Put simply, its video quality puts many other pricier cameras in the shade.

Blackmagic’s full-frame video shooter lags behind rivals for outright handling: there’s no tracking autofocus or in-body image stabilization, while 120fps slow motion recording is only possible in 1080p resolution and there’s no built-in ND filter.

However, for many aspiring filmmakers the quality you can squeeze out of the Cinema Camera 6K, together with proxy recording for a smooth post production workflow is what sets Blackmagic Design’s camera apart. You get dual native ISOs for excellent low light performance, too.

The money saved in this mega deal could well be enough to get you a dream L-mount lens from the perennial maker of excellent third-party lenses, Sigma. If you’re serious about getting into filmmaking, this deal could be your place start.
