Sony’s Blackmagic Cinema Camera S5 is the best new blackmagic camera ever
Sony announced today that its Blackmagic camera S5 will be available in select countries, including the United States and Canada.
The camera, which comes with a whopping $3,499 price tag, is the first blackmagic to be available for US consumers.
Sony’s camera has been available for years for $2,499 in select markets like Japan and Korea.
That camera is the successor to Sony’s $1,299 camera, the Blackmagic C-3000.
The C-6000 was a bit of a letdown to the Blackjack camera lineup that Sony made a lot of, but it has quickly made a comeback in the past few years.
The S5 has a full HD 1080p OLED display, 16 megapixel rear camera, 2K video recording and dual-LED flash.
It also comes with the same $399 price tag as its predecessor.
Blackmagic said it expects to ship the camera in the United Kingdom and Canada in October.
