Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro review

 

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro is an excellent purchase for professional videographers with a great build, quality features and incredible image quality.

Fantastic image quality Improved battery life Time-saving built-in ND filters Huge, bright tilt screen

Not intended for beginners No real stills capability

While beginners and even some experienced users might find its quirks quite baffling at first, the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro is a fantastic and affordable tool for the professional videographer. Packed with useful, thoughtful features and offering...

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro review

 

Yet more affordable video voodoo from Blackmagic

Superb recording quality and versatility ; Solid, compact and lightweight build ; Improvement to battery life

No in-body image stabilisation ; No AF tracking

Not for the faint-hearted video dabbler, but seasoned cinematographers will be smitten

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.

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 Pro review: pro filmmaking without the price!

 

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro is a purpose-built 6K camera that shoots Raw footage and offers great value

Great value for the spec ; Built-in ND filters ; Blackmagic Raw and ProRes

It’s not a small camera! ; No continuous AF, AE or IBIS ; Screen is tilt-only

First of all, you have to get used to the handling from the odd size and large shape of the Super35mm Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro – which is certainly far from being pocket size. And the lack of continuous autofocus, image stabilisation or...

Review: Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K

 

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K gives indie filmmakers what they want and need, at a price that's just amazing.

Incredible 6K image performance and dynamic range;Very easy to use menu system;EF mount it good for Canon people;Output to SSD drives makes for fast workflows;5-inch screen and built in multi-channel audio recording mean you don't need to add your own

Battery life is nowhere near enough;5-inch screen doesn't articulate or fold out;You will probably need a rig for day to day use ;EF mount is not so good for non-Canon people
