There are other skillful bite-sized cameras on the market, besides the uber-popular GoPro. Take for example, the new Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera ($1,000). Designed for video and film professionals, this thing is a bit bigger than an action cam, yet way more capable.
Boasting a Super 16mm full professional sensor, this camera produces full 1080 HD resolution, 13 stops of dynamic range, a max. ISO of 1600, and a shutter speed of up to 30 frames per second, rendering incredible, distortion-free action shots. Recording is done in both lossless 12-bit log CinemaDNG RAW and broadcast quality Apple ProRes formats. The gadget can be paired with MFT lenses and lens mount adapters, drones, microphones and boom arms, while a built-in expansion port lets you control settings like iris, focus, audio levels, and even receive video output using aircraft remote control gear. So if you’re eager to have a stabilized drone camera with impressive features like remotely controlled zoom lens, this is it!
