NAB 2013 news: FSI monitors add Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera monitoring

Anyone anxiously waiting for their Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera will be interested to know that all Flanders Scientific Inc (FSI) monitors now have realtime viewing available from the camera. For anyone else, it’s another bullet point to add to your ‘Reasons I deserve a BMCC’ list.

The two selectable Log Modes – BMD-Log Standard and BMD-Log Full – allow normalised realtime viewing of the Film Mode output from the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera, making it a great option for on-set monitoring. Any FSI monitor will now come with this function as standard, but all current users are also able to get it with a simple free firmware update.

Both the BMD Log modes can be assigned to function keys for one-click access between the native viewing mode and one or both of the monitor’s normalised viewing modes. All you have to do is toggle  to the BMD Log mode settings so you and anyone on set can get an idea of what to expect in post.

Naturally, FSI will be wooing attendees at NAB with their fancy-pants camera and monitor setup. If you find yourself in Vegas of an evening, head to Booth SL11127 and let us know what you think. If you’re just after the camera, you can pre-order your Blackmagic Cinema Camera here.
