The deluge of new cameras to choose from shows no signs of slowing down, and manufacturer’s previously strangers to the camera market are starting to produce their own offerings. It’s no longer the world of Sony, Canon, Arri and RED.
Proving the point is AJA with their new CION camera. It looks like it will be a versatile little box at a very affordable price point.
It remains to be seen how well this will stack up against the big players in the field and if their sensor technology can hold it’s own next to an Arri or RED, but they will surely sell a lot of them based on price alone.
It’s discouraging seeing them require their own proprietary media, but they aren’t exorbitantly expensive at about $700 per card.
Check out the video below for more info, and of course, you’ll be able to rent the AJA Cion from BrainBox just as soon as it hits the streets.
