The Quality, Size & Price of this Pro Video Camera is Unique

This is a tiny high quality cube-shaped camera, called the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. It’s specifically designed for remote shooting and at $995 it’s a serious option for Aerial UAV Cinematographers.


The Blackmagic Micro records to SD card and although there’s no built-in monitor there’s a full-size HDMI port so you can attach one to see what you’re shooting.


An ‘expansion’ port that will allow the use of PWM and S.Bus remote controls that are usually found in model aeroplanes and drones. Different functions can be mapped to different channels: for example iris, focus and record start/stop can all be controlled via remote transmitter.

New Wide Angle Lens Mobius

Mobius Wide Angle

The Mobius action camera now comes with a wider angle lens, which is awesome news if you’re using one as your FPV camera.

The new version has a greater horizontal field of view with in increase of 9 degrees over the old lens, binging the total field of view to 131 degrees.

The lens will of course have an increase in fisheye curvature, but this can usually be offset in post production using something like Adobe Premiere if you’re fussy about your multirotor footage.

According to Mobius, the picture is noticeably brighter across the entire frame and has much better flare reduction.

You can pick one up from Banggood for about around $100.
