For everyone from aspiring amateur filmmakers to seasoned cinephiles, the 2.5k-resolution Blackmagic Cinema Camera is an unprecedented piece of gear. It works with lenses you may already have, whether that means standard DSLR ones or the arsenal of howitzer-size optics normally mounted on $40,000 studio-owned rigs. Newbies will dig the five-inch touchscreen, aluminum body, and built-in SSD recorder; salty old pros will simply wonder how such a powerful sensor made its way onto a sub-$3,000 camera.
