Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Overview

  • 1Description

Blackmagic Design ups the ante in compact cine-style capture with their Super 35 sensor Pocket Cinema Camera 6K. Not only can the BMPCC 6K record up to 50 fps 6144 x 3456 video, but in a boon to lens connoisseurs everywhere, it features an active Canon EF mount, letting users take advantage of the expansive array of EF-mount lenses available.

Turn to the BMPCC 6K to turn one frame into two by cropping a second shot from one frame, to upscale to 8K, or to simply capture rich, detailed footage with your favorite EF-mount lens. The same internal color processing makes it easy to intercut BMPCC 6K with BMPCC 4K footage. Record using the internal CFast 2.0 and SD/UHS-II card slots or output via the USB-C port to capture longer clips to an external drive. The BMPCC 6K includes a DaVinci Resolve Studio license and supports Blackmagic Raw capture from the sensor. Using the Raw format with the sensor's metadata simplifies editing to suit any project and makes editing easier with DaVinci Resolve.

The compact BMPCC 6K retains the familiar controls and menu layout of the 4K version in a minimally deeper form to accommodate the EF lens mount. Features such as ISO support up to 25,600, 13 stops of dynamic range, 1920 x 1080 monitor output, and a bright 1920 x 1080 touchscreen 5" LCD are carried through from the BMPCC 4K as well. Professional audio support includes a mini XLR input with phantom +48V power and four built-in mics. Whether you're shooting an indie film, wildlife, or fashion, the BMPCC 6K's compact form is less intrusive than larger cameras, lending itself to more intimate setups. The BMPCC 6K is fashioned from a carbon fiber polycarbonate composite that is both lightweight and durable.

Additional pro features include lens metadata support, 3D LUT application for both monitoring and recording, 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 multicam shoots by linking an external timecode generator to the BMPCC 6K's internal timecode generator (accessed via the 3.5mm audio port). Then save valuable time by using Resolve 16.1 to automatically sync your multicam shots in post.

In addition to the DaVinci Resolve Studio activation key, the BMPCC 6K comes with a power supply offering simultaneous battery charging, an LP-E6 battery, a lens port cap, and a camera strap.

    Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Reviews

    Pocket Cinema Camera 6K (Canon EF) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so far I used the 4K for corporate events several times in the past, and decided to jump on the 6k for Freelance work. Love the fact that I don't need an EF adapter, and when you account for the cost of a metabones, this camera doesn't have that much of a price premium on the 4k. Lowlight seems to be a little better. Sensor is a definite improvement. My biggest gripe is that 4k/4k DCI/1080 is Prores only while the other resolutions are BMRaw only. That's odd to me, but I'm clearly not an engineer. It's a little larger to accomodate for the larger sensor but that's such a minimal issue. My camera arrived in superb condition. I have yet to test it on an all day shoot, but I look forward to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value It’s a beast! So far it has delivered on all levels. The only thing I wish they would add into this camera is an upgrade to the autofocus system. Follow focus tracking would have been a great upgrade even for a few more dollars!
    Date published: 2019-08-18
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stuck pixels out of the box This is a really really nice camera to have as a B Cam but cmon BM, stop producing cameras with dead and stuck pixels, a new camera is not supposed to have those, specially a cinema camera. Every time I buy a camera from Blackmagic and this is my 4th I have to order two and even three times the same product in order to keep the camera with the least problems, from fixed pattern to stuck pixels you name it, it's ridiculous. QC at the BM factories is very bad I have to say. Are you listening Grant Petty?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Got a beat up camera Was pretty excited to get this on the initial release date but the camera was in terrible condition when it arrived. The screen had scratches around the side, there were scratches all over the body and even two small chips near the mount. There was also glue or grease couldn’t tell what it was all over the lens cap and parts of the body. I’ve purchased dozens of cameras of all price ranges for work and this thing looked like it had been used for a few months before being packaged and given to me. I just looked it up have seen others with similar experiences. Watched a YouTube review of it and unboxing and as they pulled it out I could tell their lens cap had stuff all over it as well. As much as I love bm, this shouldn’t be happening. Returned mine waiting to see what the next one looks like.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Camera For the price, this camera is absolutely amazing. I've been putting it through some stress tests and it's been consistently beating my expectations. Cannot recommend it enough. I do wish it could adapt to a PL mount or have the newest canon mount.

    I am making assumption that Metabones Speed Booster XL 0.64x Adapter for Nikon G Lens would work with this camera. Is that right?
    Asked by: Slobodan
    It will not. This camera has an EF mount, not an MFT mount like the 4K model.

    Is anything less than 6K windowing the sensor?
    Asked by: Kevin
    Answer is on page 21 of the manual. Google it because it's impossible to find directly on the BMD website. Some are windowed. Some are scaled. Sure would be easier if they'd do illustrations...

    Is the BMPCC 6k compatible with the ronin s ?
    Asked by: 3ziz
    It will be possible to use this camera on the Ronin-S, however you will need an Offset Plate. LanParte offers an Offset Plate for the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and Ronin-S. Since the 4K and 6K models have the same dimensions, this plate will work with the 6K as well. https://bhpho.to/2Ku71HJ
