The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera is a miniaturized Super 16mm, professional digital film camera that is designed to be operated remotely and capture action anywhere. A revolutionary built in expansion port has PWM and S.Bus inputs so you can use a model airplane remote control to operate the camera wirelessly. Imagine adjusting focus, iris and zoom wirelessly. The Micro Cinema Camera is a true digital film camera that features built in RAW and ProRes recording, 13 stops of dynamic range, a global shutter and an MFT lens mount. You get a true digital film camera that can go where no other digital film camera can.

When you’re mounting the camera on quadcopters, using it as a crash cam or placing it in dangerous locations, you can operate the camera remotely, view a live feed and monitor status, all from a safe distance. The expansion port can be connected to radio control airplane receivers and various camera functions can be mapped to radio channels so you can remotely start and stop recording, adjust focus, change the iris and more! The expansion port also has a composite video output that can be connected to low cost wireless video transmitters for remote monitoring of the camera’s recording status, battery life and audio levels.

The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera features an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount so you can use high performance photographic lenses including wide angle, primes, standard zooms, telephotos and more. That means you’re not stuck with a built in lens and can choose the best lens for the job! The focus, iris and zoom on active MFT lenses can be controlled remotely from the camera’s expansion port. Many MFT lenses also have built in optical image stabilization, making them perfect for use in places where there might be a lot of movement, shocks or vibration.
