Introducing the Next Generation Handheld Digital Film Cameras!
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K will dramatically improve the production value of your film. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is better than a simple video camera because it has professional features that give you that “Hollywood look”. The combination of high dynamic range, great low light performance and Blackmagic RAW gives you feature film images with precise skin tones and gorgeous organic colors. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K gives you advanced features such as 4K recording, a large 5" LCD for easy focus, SD card and CFast media, external USB‑C media disk recording, EF or MFT lens mounts and more! DaVinci Resolve Studio is also included for editing, color correction, audio post and VFX!
Use Pocket Cinema Camera as a Live Studio Camera:
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K now works as a studio camera for live production when used with the ATEM Mini range of production switchers! Video and control is via the HDMI connection, which is available as soon as you plug the cameras in. The record light becomes a tally light so you can see which camera is on air! The ATEM Software Control camera page has a camera control unit (CCU) style interface for adjusting and matching your cameras. Move the CCU control vertically for iris and left to right to adjust black level. It's the same as a broadcast CCU! There are also controls for color tint to balance cameras as well as focus, gain and shutter speed. You can even ISO record Blackmagic RAW in the camera for editing later!
Lightweight Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate Composite:
The elegant design of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K packs an incredible number of high end digital film features into a miniaturized, handheld design. Made from lightweight carbon fiber polycarbonate composite, the camera features a multifunction handgrip with all controls for recording, ISO, WB and shutter angle right at your fingertips. Because it's an advanced digital film camera, the sensor is designed to reduce thermal noise allowing cleaner shadows and higher ISO. Plus the large 5 inch LCD makes it possible to get perfect focus at 4K resolution. You also get a removable battery door, 4 shock proof microphones, heavy duty lens mount and built in speaker.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K model features a 4/3 image sensor with 4096 x 2160 resolution and an MFT lens mount, allowing you to capture wide dynamic range and Hollywood quality, digital film images in the palm of your hand! The MFT mount lets you use super compact, lightweight and affordable lenses so you can take the camera anywhere, even locations that are too hostile for larger cameras. The result is an extremely advanced, affordable and portable high end digital film camera!
Multifunction Grip with Fingertip Controls:
The multifunction handgrip features a comfortable and familiar design that puts important functions such as ISO, WB and shutter buttons right at your fingertips. There’s even a scroll wheel under your index finger for making quick iris adjustments! You get additional controls that 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 4K features easy to reach recording and still buttons that are placed exactly where you expect them to be, including user assignable function keys and control buttons for high frame rate, focus zoom, menu operation, playback and more.
High Resolution Cinematic Digital Film Sensor:
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a native sensor resolution of 4096 x 2160. Whether you’re shooting in bright sunlight or in almost no light at all, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features 13 stops of dynamic range and dual native ISO up to 25,600 for stunning low noise images in all lighting conditions. The camera lets you shoot up to 60 fps in full resolution or 120 fps windowed. With Blackmagic Generation 4 Color Science, you get the same imaging technology as our most expensive digital film cameras.
Compatible with Cinema and Photographic Lenses:
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is compatible with the largest range and most popular lenses in the world! You can use commonly available photographic lenses that provide incredible creative choice and wonderful feature film quality lens effects. The active lens mount lets you adjust focus and iris from the buttons on the camera or the touch screen. For even greater flexibility, the MFT lens mount on the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K can be adapted to PL, C, EF or other lens types!
