Blackmagic Design has released a new cinema camera Pocket Cinema Camera 6K.
Like 4K, only better
Externally, the device is very similar to the 4K camera introduced last year, but compared to it, the new product has a larger sensor. Pocket Cinema Camera 6K shoots in Super 35 format with a resolution of 6144 x 3456 pixels, which allows you to control the depth of field and significantly improve quality in low light. Representatives of Blackmagic say that the device can store more details in the brightest and darkest parts of the image, thanks to 13 steps of the dynamic range. The standard light sensitivity is ISO 400, and the maximum is 25,600.
Pocket Cinema 6K is equipped with a mini XLR, HDMI, USB-C, microphone and headphone jacks. The EF lens mount is compatible with various lenses from other manufacturers, such as Canon, Sigma and Zeiss. The camera is mainly controlled by the same five-inch touch screen as the 4K model. It can shoot up to 50 frames per second at a resolution of 6144 x 3456, 60 frames per second at 6144 x 2560 and 120 frames per second at 2868 x 1512.
Pocket Cinema Camera 6K is already available at a price of $ 2,495, which is almost two times more than the Blackmagic 4K model.
