Design process behind the Black Magic Cam
Andrew Reid posted another interesting review/interview with Grant Petty, CEO at Blackmagic Design:
We looked for a sensor that would give us the [large] contrast range. It’s a sensor that has been used in astronomy and military stuff. If you get a sensor that is too big you start to get extreme [shallow] depth of field and some people don’t like that, some people do. What we really wanted to do was to get that nice high contrast range. What we didn’t want to do is a large sensor that drains power. Sensor size wasn’t the priority, the image was.
There is alot more on EOSHD!
