Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K European Launch Event

As it’s the official Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K European launch event today, I thought it was worth re-visiting the features of this great camera which is set to make a big impact on the industry.

Nothing available right now can deliver what this Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera 4K can at a price point of £1,000 (approx.) which is why there is so much excitement and anticipation. It features a four thirds sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range and dual native ISO up to 25,600 giving you great low light performance. The camera captures 4K (4096 x 2160) images at rates up to 60 fps in a variety of codecs including CinemaDNG Raw/Raw 3:1/Raw 4:1, and various ProRes 422 options. Slow-motion rates up to 120 fps are available in cropped Full HD and it has a high resolution 5-inch touch screen and improved battery life.

External controls give quick access to essential functions, while the large 5 inch touchscreen makes it easy to frame shots, focus accurately and change camera settings. Features include built in SD/UHS-II or CFast 2.0 recorders for RAW or ProRes recoding as well as a USB-C expansion port for recording externally to disks, plus MFT lens mount, built-in microphones, XLR input, full sized HDMI, 3D LUT support, Bluetooth and more.

The body is made from carbon fibre polycarbonate composite, which makes it strong and lightweight. The design itself will suit shooting independent films and documentaries, fashion shows, travel blogs, web videos, weddings, corporate video and sports.
