The 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 Type-C output for capturing longer clips to an external drive. The Pocket Cinema Camera 4K's 5" touchscreen LCD 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 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 composite build provides lightweight strength and durability, and power options include running off the included Canon LP-E6 type battery or the included power supply.

question

Any huess on how well the BMPCC 4K will work with the Panasonic Leica 100-400mm and Ronin-S?
Asked by: Kai
Two things: 1. We feel there is a strong possibly that the lens will be too long to properly balance on the Ronin S and: 2. A 100-400mm is too long a lens for a stabilizer. The problem would be keeping the subject in frame unless they are a hundred feet away. Generally, stabilizers work the most effectively with wide lenses. A lens like the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens B&H # PA123528A would be far more appropriate.

question

I understand that this will not have continuous autofocus, but can a blackmagic design expert confirm the double tap to pull focus explained in this link?https://youtu.be/QcEnwIGYPKM?t=3m5s
Asked by: Ese M.
Double tapping zooms in on that part of the image. In previous cameras, it zoomed in on the center of frame, but now it zooms to the part you tapped on. It does not focus for you.
