Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K overview

  • 1Description

The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a 4/3" sensor for capturing up to 4096 x 2160 DCI 4K images at rates up to 60 fps in a variety of codecs including CinemaDNG Raw/Raw 3:1/Raw 4:1, and various ProRes 422 options. Slow-motion rates up to 120 fps are available in cropped Full HD. Its Micro Four Thirds lens mount accommodates the original, lightweight Pocket Cinema Camera lenses, and can be used with PL, C, EF, and other lenses with the use of separately available adapters. A dual-native ISO up to 25,600 is featured for low-light capture, and 13 stops of dynamic range provide rich HDR images.

Record using the internal CFast 2.0 and SD/UHS-II card slots, or employ the USB-C output for capturing longer clips to an external drive. The Pocket Cinema Camera 4K's 5" touchscreen LCD display reduces the need for an external, onboard monitor, while a full-sized HDMI port enables you to output a signal to a larger display. The menu and interface are the same as the ones found on the URSA Mini camera, and 3D LUTs can be applied for monitoring or for baking in your look when you're ready to commit.

Audio features include a mini-XLR input with phantom power for pro-style mics, a 3.5mm jack, and an internal stereo mic. Additional features include the same Blackmagic OS as the URSA Mini, and Bluetooth remote control. A license key for DaVinci Resolve Studio is included for versatile post-production control. The Pocket Cinema Camera 4K's carbon fiber polycarbonate build provides lightweight strength and durability, and power options include running off a Canon LP-E6 type battery or the included power supply.

    Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K reviews

    Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! The camera feels great; hefty yet not heavy. The body is inconspicuous like a DSLR. With the bigger screen, focusing and framing are easier. Tapping through the menu seems intuitive and responsive. My copy was pre-ordered on 9 April, shipped overnight, and delivered on 5 October. Paired with the Metabones SpeedBooster XL for Canon, the adapter has some play but not a whole lot. On the wider end of a Canon 16-35 IS f/4L, no vignetting was visible. The Arca Swiss foot on the Metabones is about a quarter inch higher from being flush with the bottom of the camera. The heat dissipated from the bottom vent was warm but my not hot. At the bottom, there are two guide holes for the proper alignment of accessories. The battery door does not give you solid feedback when closing; not an issue for me but noticeable. The included battery does not transmit percentage of power remaining and is not chargeable externally via the Canon LC-E6. The screen only showed a little decreasing battery icon. However, Canon and even Watson batteries give you percentage reading. This was an issue with the BMD battery as the camera shuts off without warning. In contrast, Canon or Watson batteries warn you at 20%, and are chargeable externally. Boot up takes between about 5 seconds. The power switch is a welcome change from the original BMPCC. ProRes LT 4K 60p DCI is possible to a SanDisk Extreme Pro V30 UHS I (rated for 95 MBps read, 30 MBps write speeds). I believe the camera has a buffer good enough for about 19 seconds and 30 frames. Please share what you find. macOS 10.14 does not mount SD or CFAST cards via USB C. Investing in a SD/CFAST 2.0 readers may be a must. Also, a MacBook Pro 15" did not charge the BMPCC 4K's battery via USB C but the Mac wall charger did. My BMPCC 4K is paired my with an ONA Bowery bag. It fits perfectly with accessories and one lens. This camera that it reminds me of 2008 and the Canon 5D Mark II; it changed everything. Can't wait to shoot more!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for budget features and budget docs This camera has all the tools the bigger cameras have except the super 35. Other than that it's fantastic! And a free copy of davinci come with great value!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just as expected It has improved since when I was able to get my hands on this a few Months ago and lots of more added options. I think GH5s pulls through a bit more for what it has to offer. BM color science is much better of course but no where near what Lumix has to offer with Video Modes. Great Camera and hope it has a bit more future updates. Another great thing about it is the Resolve Studio Software, as a FCPX user, I am already starting to adapt to it and the color grading tools it has is amazing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Cheap plastic, heavy, bulky and I can't use Hasselblad lenses on it!
