Get the "Hollywood Look" with Digital Film!
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera has the professional features needed for feature film, television programming & documentaries, however now these same features can be used to revolutionize other types of work such as blog videos, YouTube content & more. You get the same features found on expensive digital film cameras, allowing capture of deeper colours, higher image detail & a wider dynamic range between the brightest highlights & deepest shadows. It's the key reason why feature films look so amazing & now you can get these same high end production values for any kind of work. Imagine getting film quality on independent film, music videos, weddings, corporate videos, documentaries & more!
Lightweight Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate Composite
The elegant design of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera packs an incredible number of high end digital film features into a miniaturized, handheld design. Made from lightweight carbon fiber polycarbonate composite, the camera features a multifunction handgrip with all controls for recording, ISO, WB & shutter angle right at your fingertips. Because it's an advanced digital film camera, the sensor is designed to reduce thermal noise allowing cleaner shadows & higher ISO. Plus the large 5 inch LCD makes it possible to get perfect focus at 4K & 6K resolutions. You also get a removable battery door, 4 shock proof microphones, heavy duty lens mount & built in speaker.
Multifunction Grip with Fingertip Controls!
The multifunction handgrip features a comfortable & familiar design that puts important functions such as ISO, WB & shutter buttons right at your fingertips. There’s even a scroll wheel under your index finger for making quick iris adjustments! You get additional controls that go beyond those found on a DSLR, which means you don’t have to go hunting through menus on a tiny screen to find a command! The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera features easy to reach recording & still buttons that are placed exactly where you expect them to be, including user assignable function keys & control buttons for high frame rate, focus zoom, menu operation, playback & more.
High Resolution Cinematic Digital Film Sensor!
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a native sensor resolution of 4096 x 2160, while the 6K model has a native resolution of 6144 x 3456. Whether you’re shooting in bright sunlight or in almost no light at all, both models feature 13 stops of dynamic range & dual native ISO up to 25,600 for stunning low noise images in all lighting conditions. Plus the 6K model's larger Super 35 sensor allows shooting with a shallow depth of field & anamorphic lenses. Both models let you shoot up to 60 fps in full resolution or 120 fps windowed. When you combine the sensor with the latest Blackmagic Generation 4 Colour Science, you get the same imaging technology as our most expensive digital film cameras.
Compatible with Cinema & Photographic Lenses!
With 2 models of the BMPCC, you can chose between EF or MFT lenses, making Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera compatible with the largest range & most popular lenses in the world! The 6K model features an EF lens mount so you can use lenses you already own from other cameras such as DSLR, URSA Mini Pro or even the original Blackmagic Cinema Camera! You can use commonly available photographic lenses that provide incredible creative choice & wonderful feature film quality lens effects. The active lens mount lets you adjust focus & iris from the buttons on the camera or the touch screen. For even greater flexibility, the MFT lens mount on the 4K model can be adapted to PL, C, EF or other lens types!
Shoot Incredible High Dynamic Range (HDR) Images
The distance between the lightest & the darkest parts of an image is called dynamic range & is measured in stops. Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K & 6K both have an incredible 13 stops of dynamic range which means they preserve more detail in the lightest & darkest areas of an image than simple video cameras can. This allows you to set exposure for an indoor scene such as a cafe & still retain the details of bright outdoor light coming through a window. You even get more colours than the standard DCI‑P3 colourspace used for feature films. DaVinci Resolve Studio software is included with the camera, which means that you get total creative freedom with full exposure adjustment & recovery controls when colour grading!
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 Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera features dual gain ISO up to 25,600, which means both the 4K & 6K models are optimized to minimize 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 on the camera, so it's easy to capture great images when you don’t have time to set up lights.
Use Standard SD Cards, UHS‑II or CFast 2.0 Media!
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera features built in CFast & SD UHS‑II card recorders, & a USB‑C expansion port for recording direct to an external media disk. You can use regular SD cards for HD or higher performance UHS‑II & CFast cards for native 4K or 6K when using Blackmagic RAW. Imagine capturing over an hour of full resolution 6K images on a single 256GB SD UHS‑II card! The ProRes & Blackmagic RAW files work with all video software. You can even mount the media cards on your computer & start editing directly from them using the included DaVinci Resolve Studio software!
The Quality of RAW & the Speed of Video!
Blackmagic RAW is a revolutionary new format designed to capture & preserve the quality of the sensor data from your camera. Video formats such as H.264 are highly compressed, plus add noise & weird artefacts, causing original sensor detail to be lost forever. Blackmagic RAW eliminates this problem & gives you stunning images with incredible detail & colour throughout the production pipeline from camera to edit, colour & mastering. It also saves camera settings as metadata so you can set ISO, white balance & exposure in camera or override them later while editing, all without any loss of quality! Only Blackmagic RAW gives you the highest quality, smallest files & fastest performance!
Featuring the same Generation 5 Colour Science as the high end URSA Mini Pro G2, the Pocket Cinema Camera delivers stunning, accurate skin tones & faithful colour in every shot. Blackmagic Generation 5 Colour Science uses a complex dynamic 12‑bit gamma curve designed to capture more colour data in the highlights & shadows, so you get better looking images. The colour science also handles some of the complex Blackmagic RAW image processing, so colour & dynamic range data from the sensor is preserved via metadata which you can use in post-production. That means you get images that have a natural, film like response to colour adjustments in post with DaVinci Resolve Studio.
Professional Connections for Custom Rigs!
Though small & portable, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera features a wide range of connections for audio, monitoring, power & more. The camera includes a full size HDMI connector for monitoring with support for HDR & clean 10‑bit output. That means you can connect an HDMI display or television for on set monitoring of images, with or without overlays that show critical information & 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 & a professional locking DC power connector! The USB‑C connection lets you connect & record direct to your media disk!
4 Built‑in Microphones & Professional Audio Inputs
With professional, high fidelity audio recording built in you'll never have to carry around a separate sound recorder again! Both Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera models feature a mini XLR input with 48 volts of phantom power for connecting professional microphones such as lapel mics & booms. The four built in microphones have an extremely low noise floor & are shock & wind resistant, allowing you to capture great sound in any location. There’s also a 3.5mm audio input for connecting video camera style microphones, along with a built in speaker for playback & a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Shoot Still Frames up to 21.2 Megapixels!
In addition to shooting video, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera can also capture high resolution stills. Simply press the dedicated stills button to record 21.2 megapixel images on the 6K model or 8 megapixel images on the 4K model. Still images are saved as fully uncompressed DNG frames, so you get the maximum image quality, which is perfect for making professional prints. Capturing still images is great for keeping track of continuity between shots or for sharing images to get approval from clients that are not on set.
