NAB 2013 news: Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera and 4K Cinema Camera leaked

The first victims of the smartphone-toting masses at this year’s NAB show are Blackmagic Design, who have had details of their Pocket Cinema Camera and 4K Cinema Camera leaked to the internet. 

A poster of two banners in their impressively sealed stand has hit the web and, as you can see, it gives away some choice specs from the two models. So far, we know that the Pocket Cinema Camera is going to be a 1080p capable Micro 4/3″ camera with a Super 16mm sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range and Micro HDMI connectivity. It’ll support ProRes and RAW files, and will be priced at $995.

The Blackmagic Production Camera 45 will feature the same specs at the first generation EF Cinema Camera, but will be capable of shooting 4K and UltraHD. The inclusion of a global shutter edges the camera further into F55/Alexa territory, which we’re predictably excited about.

A full translation of the blurry image above reads:
