In the last weeks and months Blackmagic has already made significant price adjustments on some of its products. For example, the URSA Mini 12K was lowered to 6,000 euros and also the ATEM Mini Pro mixers were slightly cheaper in April.
Today it's the panels' turn, but before all that there is first of all a de facto price increase, because the DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor bundle will no longer be offered as of today. Instead, Resolve will be shipped with the hardware from now on and the price for the whole bundle will be increased from 300 to 400 Euros.
For a little more you can now buy the DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard, which is reduced from about 1000 Euro to about 600 Euro. In principle, this is a really great device, but it is only available with an English QWERTY keyboard layout. Therefore, the keyboard is probably not an option for German-speaking frequent writers. Especially since a good QWERTY keyboard + Speed Editor offers a comparable comfort.
If you are looking for more color correction comfort, you can now be happy about the price reduction of the grading panels. The Resolve Micro Panel drops from approx. 1,000 to 800 euros and pleased very much in our slashCAM test.
The price reduction of the Resolve Mini Panel from approx. 3,000 euros to approx. 2,000 euros is likely to trigger a real "want to have" reflex among some users. This panel already offers many of the possibilities of the large master console. The latter remains unchanged in price at around 30,000 euros.
The Mini Panel in particular allows grading almost without a mouse, since it offers numerous additional buttons and displays with which you can change tools, add color correction nodes, apply secondary gradings and operate Power Windows.
