Blackmagic's new Micro Cinema Camera may be small, but its features are that of something twice its size. They've taken a cinema-grade camera and shoved it into what is essentially an action camera on steroids. We're talking a Super 16mm sensor with all the pro-level I/O you want in something that's about the size of a baseball.
