We just received an update from Blackmagic Design CEO Grant Petty regarding the Production Cinema Camera:
“As we mentioned a few weeks ago, we received the production sensors much later than we expected. When we built cameras from them we saw some big differences in the images between these production sensors vs the pre production samples we originally received. What this means is that we have been working over the last few weeks to replace a bunch of the software in the camera that handles the sensor calibration and image processing.
It’s taking a bit longer than we expected to do this and we think its going to take about 3 to 4 weeks more to get those changes done and to get the QA process completed before we can start shipping.
We apologize for the delays from the original promised date. Ultimately, image calibration is a very important step so we want to make sure this is done properly before shipping.”
We are looking at October at the earliest for the first few 4K cameras to ship, We’ve reached out for status updates on the Pocket Camera and Resolve 10, if we hear anything we will keep you posted.
