In this video, we’re ranking all of the cameras in the Blackmagic portfolio.

This is about to get controversial. For some reason, we’re in the mood to make a video that could spark a fair amount of debate, or, dare I say controversy? In this article, I’m going to rank Blackmagic cameras from worst to best!  Feel free to watch this in the video above as well.

Before we get into the rankings, I need to make a quick disclaimer. In preparation for this week’s video, I ran a poll in multiple community groups asking users which Blackmagic camera was the best. There were more than 300 responses.

Surprisingly the OG BMPCC camera only had 3% of support, followed by the URSA 12k at 7%, the URSA G2 at 9%, and the 6K Pro at 38%. The BMPC 4K came in first place at 43%. 

The results from recent polling.
