The new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has a full 4/3 HDR sensor, dual native ISO up to 25,600 with low light performance and 13 stops of dynamic range.
Blackmagic Design has introduced the 4K version of the Pocket Cinema Camera.
The new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has a full 4/3 HDR sensor, dual native ISO up to 25,600 with low light performance and 13 stops of dynamic range. It features a unique USB-C Expansion Port, which allows customers to record using the internal SD/UHS-II and CFast recorders or directly to the same external disks you can use for editing and colour correction.
The design features a new lightweight carbon fibre polycarbonate composite material so the camera body has strength and rigidity to protect it from accidental knocks and drops. The handheld design features a multi-function grip which has logically placed buttons and dials that allow access to essential shooting functions such as recording start/stop, still photos, ISO, shutter, aperture, white balance, power and more.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has an MFT lens mount, large 5-inch touchscreen monitor, 10-bit ProRes and 12-bit RAW recording, 3D LUTs, four built in microphones, mini XLR audio input with phantom power, Bluetooth wireless camera control, HDMI on set monitoring output and more.
The company claims that the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K lets customers shoot images that are better than DSLR cameras and better than professional digital film cameras costing tens of thousands more. It will be available from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide later this year for only $1,295.
