The Blackmagic Video Assist 4K will get you many of the pro options at a lower price than others, and gives you the added option of recording video and audio. In my search, I haven’t found a better monitor below this price point, so it’s a solid starter option for microfilmmakers who want to create decent images without shelling out more than $1000.
For my money, every camera in Blackmagic's line is a great call for the money, but this one is perhaps being the best value for the price. Find out why in this review!
The latest trend is to reach out with the same cutting edge technology to both consumers and pros alike, offering near or exact versions to both target markets. No more highly publicized example of this is Apple's move with Final Cut X.

Blackmagic proves they are interested in the microfilmmaker market with a $1k cinema quality camera. Another exciting day of NAB sent even more great news for Microfilmmakers everywhere, with both production and post-production related gear hitting the block.
