Multifunction Grip with Fingertip Controls!
The multifunction handgrip features an ergonomic design that puts important functions such as ISO, WB and shutter buttons at your fingertips. There’s even a scroll wheel under your index finger for making quick iris adjustments! Additional controls 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 and still buttons that are placed exactly where you expect, including user assignable function keys allowing buttons for high frame rate, focus zoom, false color and more. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro also adds extra ND filter controls.
Back Panel Controls
Conveniently placed below the right thumb rest, you can quickly change shooting speed with the high frame rate button, zoom into the image with the magnifying glass, access setup menus and quickly play back shots for review.
High Resolution Cinematic Digital Film Sensor!
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro feature 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. Featuring a larger Super 35 sensor that allows shooting with a shallow depth of field and anamorphic lenses. All models let you shoot up to 60 fps in full resolution or 120 fps windowed. An amazing sensor combined with Blackmagic color science means you get the same imaging technology as the most expensive digital film cameras.
Built in ND Filters
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro features high quality, motorized IR ND filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. Designed to match the colorimetry and color 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 from the multi function hand grip. 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. Pocket Cinema Cameras have an incredible 13 stops of dynamic range which means they preserve 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 colors than the standard DCI-P3 colorspace used for feature films. Plus DaVinci Resolve Studio is included with the camera, so you get total creative freedom with full exposure adjustment and recovery controls when color grading!
There’s an awful lot to love about the more powerful Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro, which has been designed with a host of upgrades to support high end digital film making. Blackmagic has also included numerous pro video inputs such as mini XLR audio x2, optional high res EVF and 3.5mm audio, along with Canon EF lens support. Other upgrades include a brighter 1,500 nit adjustable HDR touchscreen screen, built in ND filters, a larger battery and the latest generation 5 colour science and the larger Super 35 HDR (6144 x 3456) sensor with 13 stops of dynamic range. The list is seemingly endless even before we get to the movie capabilities presenting a seriously tempting upgrade or highly competitive cinema camera option for those new to Blackmagic Design.
Film makers who shoot during low light will reap the rewards of the dual native ISO up to 25,600 which captures video with extremely low noise levels while retaining the high dynamic range. Recording in 10-bit Apple ProRes or 12-bit Blackmagic RAW (with a free RAW SDK) provides plenty of industry standard colour grading options from 4K to 6K at 60p. The Pocket 6K Pro camera even includes a new dynamic 12-bit gamma curve to capture more colour data. Whichever way you look at it, this is a highly desirable and versatile pro video camera in an ultra compact body. It meets the demands of today’s film makers, documentary makers and independent film makers across every score with ease.
