NAB2013: Blackmagic clear up codec confusion on pocket cinema camera

NAB 2013: Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera – Codecs Clarification from Dan Chung on Vimeo.

Blackmagic clear up the questions that have come from yesterday’s release of their Pocket Cinema Camera. The protoype cameras being demoed at the show are locked to ProRes with no sign of the claimed Cinema DNG. However, the camera on release is due to feature both ProRes and Cinema DNG options. Cinema DNG in the Pocket Cinema Camera is described as ‘lightly compressed’ to a level of 1.5:1, so from a 128GB card Blackmagic predict 30min of raw, compared to 70-80mins of ProRes.
