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.

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro review: pro filmmaking without the price!

 

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro is a purpose-built 6K camera that shoots Raw footage and offers great value

First of all, you have to get used to the handling from the odd size and large shape of the Super35mm Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro – which is certainly far from being pocket size. And the lack of continuous autofocus, image stabilisation or...

Yet more affordable video voodoo from Blackmagic

Superb recording quality and versatility ; Solid, compact and lightweight build ; Improvement to battery life

No in-body image stabilisation ; No AF tracking

Not for the faint-hearted video dabbler, but seasoned cinematographers will be smitten
