Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K is a super-camera in a compact housing

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K looks fantastic on paper. It has a larger Super 35 matrix, 6K resolution and Canon EF mount with full electronics support. And this is not the end of its possibilities.

The new camera looks practically identical to the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K presented last year. It has an ergonomic, modern shape, is small and light. The predecessor was quickly hailed as one of the most compact cameras on the market.

The new model in the same body offers much, much more.

The heart of the camera is the Super 35 matrix measuring 23.1 × 12.99 mm, which works with sensitivity up to ISO 25600. The Dual Native ISO function includes ISO 400 and 25600 - the first is to work perfectly in studio recordings, and the second in shots poor lighting conditions.

There was also the possibility of recording at a 120 fps frame at 2.8K 2868 × 1512 px 1.9: 1 and anamorphic 6: 5 mode in which the camera records 3.7K 3728 × 3104 images at 60 fps.

In terms of the sensor itself, it's a leap forward compared to the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, which had a Four Thirds sensor. In this way, we are able to get a much larger background blur, as well as probably better vividness and lower noise. We also have 6K instead of 4K.

The camera is equipped with a Canon EF bayonet with full electronics

This means that the device is fully compatible with popular Japanese brand lenses. Not only the adjustment of the aperture value and exposure works, but also the stabilization system.

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K is powered by Canon LP-E6 batteries. According to the manufacturer, the camera will last up to 45 minutes on one battery. If necessary, the device can be charged from the power bank via the USB-C port.

Movies can be saved on both CFast and SD UHS-II cards, as well as to external drives via a USB-C port.

On the side of the camera you will find a whole range of ports and sockets. The largest of these are HDMI, but there are also mini XLR, 3.5 mm jack minijack for microphone, headphone output, power supply and the previously mentioned USB-C.

The back is dominated by a large, 5-inch LCD touch screen. This is the same display as the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K model. Similarly, the camera works under the control of the Blackmagic OS system. The device has the ability to view recordings recorded in flat formats using various types of 3D LUT. In this way, the user can have a more complete picture of what the scene will look like after final correction, while maintaining the original flat file. The manufacturer states that the camera has built-in LUTs, including Extended Video, Film to Video, Film to Rec.2020, but is also able to use other LUT files.

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K promises to be excellent. If available

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K costs around $ 2,500, which may translate into around PLN 10-12 thousand in Poland. zł. The set also includes a great program for editing DaVinci Resolve Studio films. It's almost twice as much as the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K version.

The new camera can set new standards in its class. It has everything to become a hit - it is small, ergonomic, has great film capabilities. However, the problem with Blackmagic is that their cameras are often unavailable. Demand probably exceeds the company's production or organizational capabilities. And this is even in Poland, where the market is relatively small. Pocket Cinema Camera 6K may therefore be a great camera, but I hope that we will not wait for it in practice for months.
