Dramatically improve the production value of your work by upgrading to digital film. Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is better than a simple video camera because it has professional features allowing you to create the same "look" as Hollywood feature films. The combination of high dynamic range, great low light performance and Blackmagic RAW gives you feature film images with precise skin tones and gorgeous organic colours. You get advanced features such as 4K, 6K or 6K Pro models, large 5" LCD for easy focus, SD card and CFast media, external USB-C media disk recording and more. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro also adds extra ND filter controls.
High Resolution Cinematic Digital Film Sensor
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K have a native resolution of 6144 x 3456. Whether you’re shooting in bright sunlight or in almost no light at all, the 13 stops of dynamic range with dual native ISO up to 25,600 provide stunning low noise images in all lighting conditions. Plus this 6K models feature a larger Super 35 sensor that allows shooting with a shallow depth of field and anamorphic lenses. Shoot up to 60 fps in full resolution or 120 fps windowed.
Built in ND Filters
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro features high quality, motorised IR ND filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. Designed to match the colourimetry and colour science of the camera, the 2, 4 and 6 stop filters provide you with additional latitude even under harsh lighting. The IR filters have been designed to filter both optical and IR wavelengths evenly, eliminating IR contamination of the images. Activation buttons are located on the rear of the camera body, placed within easy reach of your thumb. User selectable filter settings can even be displayed as either an ND number, stop reduction or fraction on the LCD.
Shoot Incredible High Dynamic Range (HDR) Images
The distance between the lightest and the darkest parts of an image is called dynamic range and is measured in stops. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro has an incredible 13 stops of dynamic range which means it preserves more detail in the lightest and darkest areas of an image than simple video cameras can. This allows you to set exposure for an indoor scene such as a cafe and still retain the details of bright outdoor light coming through a window. You also get more colours than the standard DCI-P3 colourspace used for feature films.
Dual Gain ISO for Exceptional Low Light Performance
In digital film, ISO is a measurement of the image sensor’s sensitivity to light. This means the higher the ISO number the more sensitivity to light so it’s possible to shoot using natural light even at night. The Pocket Cinema Cameras feature dual gain ISO up to 25,600, which means they're optimised to minimise grain or noise in images, while maintaining the full dynamic range of the sensor. The native ISO of 400 is ideal for scenes with on-set lighting. The secondary high base ISO of 3200 is perfect when shooting in dimly lit environments. The gain is set automatically as you adjust the ISO setting, so it's easy to capture great images when you don’t have time to set up lights.
Touchscreen for Fast Setup
The large LCD touchscreen displays critical information on the heads up display, or HUD, as well as access to camera setup menus. The HUD lets you see and adjust settings such as the frame rate, iris, timecode, shutter angle, white balance, ISO, audio levels and more. You can show or hide the HUD by simply swiping up or down. Adjust settings such as white balance simply by touching the WB indicator, or change the audio levels by touching the audio meters. Everything is interactive, so you can tap any item and instantly change settings without searching through confusing menus. You can also access settings such as the digital slate, to quickly add metadata to any shot.
Large 5" LCD Monitor
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera features a large, bright 5 inch touchscreen that makes it easy for you to frame shots and accurately focus. That means you don’t have to carry around an external monitor. On screen overlays show status and record parameters, histogram, focus peaking indicators, levels, frame guides and more. You can quickly apply 3D LUTs for monitoring shots with the desired colour and look. The Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro's LCD monitor is a more advanced HDR display that can be tilted up and down so it's easy to monitor your shot from any position and features 1500 nits of brightness – ideal for use in bright sunlight.
Professional Connections for Custom Rigs.
Though small and portable, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro features a wide range of connections for audio, monitoring, power and more. The camera includes a full size HDMI connector for monitoring with support for HDR and clean 10-bit output. That means you can connect an HDMI display for on set monitoring of images, with or without overlays that show critical information and camera status. There’s also a mini XLR connection with 48 volt phantom power for attaching professional microphones, a 3.5 mm video camera style microphone input, headphone connection and a professional locking DC power connector. The USB-C connection lets you connect and record direct to your media disk.
4 Built-in Microphones and Professional Audio Inputs
With professional, high fidelity audio recording built in you'll never have to carry around a separate sound recorder again. Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras feature a mini XLR input with 48 volts of phantom power for connecting professional microphones such as lapel mics and booms. The 6K Pro model features 2 mini XLR connections, allowing you to record 2 separate audio tracks using 2 mics, without an external mixer. The four built in mics have an extremely low noise floor and are shock and wind resistant, capturing great sound in any location. There’s also a 3.5mm audio input for connecting video camera microphones, along with a built in speaker for playback and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Wireless Bluetooth Camera Remote Control
If you're positioning the camera on the end of a boom, or in another hard to reach location, you can get full control via Bluetooth from up to 30 feet away. You can download the Blackmagic Camera Control app for your iPad or use third party apps such as Bluetooth+ or tRigger on your iOS and Android devices. There’s even a free developer SDK with sample code available from the Blackmagic Design developer website, so you can create your own remote camera control and digital slate solutions. Imagine building an app that can jam sync timecode and trigger all cameras to record at the same time. The possibilities are endless.
