Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K Unveiled at Incredible Price

Blackmagic Design unveiled new compact 4K film camera for pro and semi-pro users.

Blackmagic Design announced the all-new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, a handheld digital film camera with full 4/3 HDR sensor, dual native ISO with up to 25600 ISO for low light performance as well as 13 stops of dynamic range. To enable convenient 4K video shooting the new Blackmagic camera features a large 5-inch touchscreen monitor on the back.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K eliminates expensive external recorders, as it features a unique new 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 they will use for editing and color correction.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K will be available from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide later this year for seemingly affordable $1,295.

The compact body of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is perfect for shooting independent films and documentaries, fashion shows, travel blogs, web videos, weddings, corporate video, sports and much more, according to the company.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a full size 4/3 HDR sensor with native 4096 x 2160 resolution and 13 stops of dynamic range for true digital film quality. The full size of the 4/3 sensor is designed to perfectly match MFT lenses so the crop factor is greatly reduced, giving customers a wider field of view. It also features dual native ISO with up to 25600 ISO for incredible low light performance.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is packed with features such as an MFT lens mount, 10-bit ProRes and 12-bit RAW recording, 3D LUTs, 4 built-in microphones, mini XLR audio input with phantom power, Bluetooth wireless camera control, HDMI on-set monitoring output and more.

The latest Blackmagic Design color science lets customers shoot images that are far better than DSLR cameras and even better than professional digital film cameras costing tens of thousands more.

Designed using a space-age carbon fiber polycarbonate composite, the body of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is extremely strong and light.

Images can be recorded onto standard SD cards, faster UHS-II cards or CFast 2.0 cards in either ProRes or RAW formats. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K can record 4K images at up to 60 frames per second and windowed HD at up to 120 frames per second. It’s also the first camera that lets customers record directly onto the same exact external USB-C media drives they use for editing and color correction. That means customers can turn projects around much more quickly because they don’t have to transfer files. All they need to do is unplug the USB-C drive and then connect it to their computer to start editing.

For audio, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features multiple built-in microphones with an extremely low noise floor, a mini XLR input with 48 volts of phantom power to connect professional lapel and boom mics, and a 3.5mm stereo audio jack for connecting different types of video camera microphones. The high quality built-in audio recording means customers don’t have to carry around a separate recorder.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K also includes a full-size HDMI connector which can output HDR video as well as a clean 10-bit video feed with optional on-screen overlays.

Watch the Blackmagic Design CEO explain the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K hands-on. The company has not revealed a specific release date for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. Blackmagic Design camera gear is on sale on amazon.com.
