Now, juicedLink‘s Robert Rozak performs another exhaustive test, this time to illustrate the benefits of using the Riggy Micro/Assist setup with Blackmagic’s Cinema Camera — plus major audio issues that must be addressed with that camera system.
If you are wondering why your Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera pre-order hasn’t shipped yet then here’s the answer. Blackmagic’s CEO Grant Petty has just posted this statement over over on the company’s user forum.

The Blackmagic Cinema Camera is the most Apple-like camera I have ever used, in fact the only camera. Like the iPhone it stands out on the market as better than the mass market clones, at least on paper. Is it worth the wait?
Even though they’re at much different price points, let’s compare the SCARLET to the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, because the latter uses off-the-shelf SSDs and the two are the only RAW-shooting cinema cameras under $10k.
