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.

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K review

 

This Blackmagic camera is a full-on VFX studio in a box.

6K resolution ; DaVinci Resolve comes included in the box ; Excellent touchscreen menu system

Short battery life ; Fixed screen

Great quality, great features, great price. If you want an all-in-one cinema solution this is well worth a look.
