Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K

 

You'll have a hard time finding fault with the quality of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K's video, but the camera itself isn't a pleasure to use.

Captures video at 6K. High-quality Raw footage at up to 50fps. Supports 60fps at 4K. AC power option. Top and bottom tripod threads.

Subpar rear display. SLR mount limits lens options. Not a full-frame sensor. Rudimentary autofocus support. Large file sizes. Limited battery life.

Bottom Line: You'll have a hard time finding fault with the quality of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K's video, but the camera itself isn't a pleasure to use.

That old Blackmagic puts raw video in your pocket

 

The company famous for its affordable 4K camera announces a $995 compact camera with a Micro Four Thirds lens mount that generates HD Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) and lossless compressed CinemaDNG raw files.

Review: Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K

 

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K gives indie filmmakers what they want and need, at a price that's just amazing.

Incredible 6K image performance and dynamic range;Very easy to use menu system;EF mount it good for Canon people;Output to SSD drives makes for fast workflows;5-inch screen and built in multi-channel audio recording mean you don't need to add your own

Battery life is nowhere near enough;5-inch screen doesn't articulate or fold out;You will probably need a rig for day to day use ;EF mount is not so good for non-Canon people
