The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro includes all the recording features of its predecessor. Including sensor, dynamic range, buttons, and ports. In addition, it adds a variety of new features. These include a 5″ tilting touchscreen, built-in ND filters and dual mini-XLR inputs. Also, an accurate timecode clock, an NP-F570 L-series battery slot, and updated Gen 5 colour science. Finally an optional Pro EVF is available.
The 6K Pro records the same resolutions up to 50 fps 6144 x 3456 video. It also retains the active Canon EF mount. This lets users take advantage of the expansive array of EF / EF-S mount lenses. The EF mount supports iris, autofocus, and zoom functions using electronic communication when using compatible lenses.
The Pocket 6K Pro can turn one frame into two by cropping a second shot from one frame. Alternatively, it can upscale to 8K, or simply capturing rich, detailed footage. The updated Gen 5 internal colour processing makes it easy to intercut 6K Pro, 6K, and BMPCC 4K footage. Record using the internal CFast 2.0 and SD/UHS-II card slots. However, also record via the full-size HDMI or USB Type-C port to capture longer clips to an external drive. The 6K Pro includes a DaVinci Resolve Studio license and supports Blackmagic Raw capture from the sensor. Thus, using the Raw format with the sensor’s metadata simplifies editing.
The compact 6K Pro retains the familiar controls and menu layout of the 6K model. ISO support up to 25,600, 13 stops of dynamic range, and 1920 x 1080 HDR monitor output. Professional audio support now includes two mini XLR inputs with phantom +48V power. Also, a 3.5mm stereo input, a mono speaker, a headphone output, and a built-in stereo mic system.
Additional Pro Features:
Additional pro features include lens metadata support, 3D LUT application for both monitoring and recording. Also, up to 21.2MP still image capture, and a multifunction grip that enables single-handed operation. Sync multiple cameras for a concert, event, or other multi-camera shoots. Link an external timecode generator to the 6K Pro internal timecode generator (accessed via the 3.5mm audio port). Then save valuable time by using Resolve to automatically sync your multi-camera shots in post.
Finally, the 6K Pro comes with a 30W power supply offering simultaneous battery charging. Optional accessories designed specifically for the 6K Pro include the BMPCC Pro EVF and BMPCC Pro Battery Grip.
