Get Incredible Action Shots

The digital film camera for action camera shots

The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera is an impossibly small true, professional quality digital film camera that’s perfect for use on quadcopters, as a crash cam, or even hidden on set for reality TV. You can mount it anywhere such as on a skate board or hang glider for spectacular extreme sports shots, to a drone to record panoramic fly overs, or even wear it on a helmet for the most amazing point of view shots! The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera will make your audience say “Wow! How did they get that shot?”

Extremely Customizable Design

The world’s smallest completely open and customizable camera

The design of the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera combines advanced miniaturization and a unique expansion port in a digital film camera that lets you create personalized rigs for remote operation and monitoring. The camera body is not much larger than the Micro Four Thirds lens mount making it as small as a camera with a professional lens can be. Its core is made out of a lightweight and strong magnesium alloy that makes it durable enough to shoot anywhere, from the ocean floor to the stratosphere or beyond! You can control the Micro Cinema Camera directly from the front buttons when it’s mounted, or remotely when it’s out of reach.
