Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Overview

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/EF-S–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/EF-S–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 multicamera 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 multicamera 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.

Just got a 6k. The fan seems a bit loud (enough to be picked up on a mic). I've used the 4k and didn't notice this issue. Wondering if there's something wrong with the 6k I just got, or if the fan is just a bit loud in these? Thanks!
Asked by: E
I have not encountered that problem with an external mic (Shure and Sennheiser) mounted on the camera. But then, I haven't used the built-in mic for anything other than scratch audio so never paid attention to the sound.

Please will my Nikon lense work if I use Nikon to Canon adapter? Since I will be filming in manual.
Asked by: John
Depending on which adapter you use, you should be fine. I use a Contax lens that I adapted to EF. Just remember that there's a crop factor of 1.588x when you use any lens. So your standard 50mm becomes roughly 79.4mm. And the crop is greater depending on which mode you shoot in. It's a great camera, and super versatile.

The camera is spinning loose from the 1/4 20 male thread. Where do I find a bottom locking plate that works with the native female points of contact? Looks there are two additional female connection points to help eliminate any twisting loose from a QR plate.

I checked the manual, could you give the 35mm equivalent for a 6k frame at 24fps using a 12mm EF lens? There really is no clear answer in the manual.
Asked by: Keith
A Super 35mm sensor has a 1.5x crop factor. A 12mm lens should be around an 18mm.
