Blackmagic cameras are some of the hottest cameras on the market now, offering the ability to shoot both raw video and high-quality production codecs. But they offer lots of options; this course will help you find a camera that fits your budget and your needs. Get to know the features of the popular Blackmagic Cinema Camera and the (4K-capable!)

- Hi, my name's Rich Harrington, and welcome to this course where we'll be exploring the Black Magic cameras, and in this course, we're going to take a Look at all of the different choices you have. Now the good news is is that there's a wide range of options, and depending upon your needs and your budget, you should find something that will work for most workflows. There are lots of challenges with these cameras, as well as lots of benefits of using these cameras. I've been shooting with them extensively since their release. These cameras are well-suited whether you're coming from a background that's more oriented to DSLR video or traditional video.

There are benefits and workflows that will be useful to most users. Now we're going to explore all of this throughout the course, as well as jump onto an actual location to see a real-world production and these cameras in use. I'd like to thank you for joining me. My name's Rich Harrington, and let's get started.
