Video software maker Blackmagic Design has announced the availability of Camera 1.8.2 software, adding three new Apple ProRes file formats for the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. The new Apple ProRes file formats include ProRes 422, ProRes 422 LT and ProRes 422 Proxy, and their inclusion means that Blackmagic Design camera can have significantly smaller video file sizes with longer recording durations, while preserving 10-bit 4:2:2 quality. Camera v1.8.2 is available now for download from the Blackmagic Design website, free for all Blackmagic camera customers.
Blackmagic Design has just added a version of its Cinema Camera that supports Micro Four Thirds lenses. The older camera will get an EF suffix to differentiate the two. The new camera will accept Passive Micro Four Thirds lenses with a manual iris and focus, though adapter rings will allow mounting other types of lenses as well.
