The movement toward digital cinema has its origins in digital video. The larger sensor enabled compatibility with Panavision's entire line of 35mm cinema lenses, making the camera more attractive to the mainstream film community. One of the major characteristics associated with Digital Cinema cameras is having larger sensors sized similarly to Super 35mm film. Previous generations of digital video cameras often relied on separate chips for each RGB colour channel. Video cameras have always captured an image consisting of pixel data encoded based on the camera's colour matrix and predefined colour science. The Pocket Cinema camera offers full raster 1080p recording in either RAW or ProRes, which is a significant improvement over GoPro and much cheaper than shooting film. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera is a great value for high-end productions that often use a GoPro style camera as a crash-cam or for other shots where it's too dangerous to utilize a larger, more expensive camera.
