The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera has drop it's price from $1000 to $500. While the camera was already a great deal, the cheapest raw camera (without hacks or Magic Lantern) , the camera is now an amazing deal. The first I saw this price, I almost went and bought it. This news was also combined with the news that the camera's new firmware had been released with compressed outputs (ProRes Proxy and LT) which offer up to 4 hours on a 64GB SD card (ProRes Proxy). This is a great time to be into filmmaking gear.
