Mirrorless cameras are getting more and more powerful and batteries have to deliver more and more performance. Well, it just happened that the 2.5K Blackmagic Cinema Camera exploded during a shooting! The cause is likely the battery of the camera.
Just watch the video on top if you don’t believe such a thing can happen for real!
And this is the official Blackmagic response on that mater:
“There have been a small number of isolated incidents where it has been reported the battery had exploded. This is not a common occurrence, and we would like to gather as much information about the situation as possible to ensure that it does not become common. We do apologize for the issue you’ve encountered and would like to assist in getting an RMA set up to sort this out. Do let me know if you have any additional questions.”
