Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro (Canon EF)
Key Features
  • Bright 1500 cd/m² Tilting HDR LCD
  • Super35 HDR Sensor, Gen 5 Color Science
  • Dual XLR Inputs, Canon Active EF Mount
  • NP-F570 Battery, Built-In ND Filters
To top their previous achievement with the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, Blackmagic Design adds an even more full-featured, compact Super35 camera to their cine-style line with the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro. The 6K Pro features all the recording features, sensor, dynamic range, buttons, and ports as its predecessor, and adds a variety of important new features such as a 5" tilting HDR capacitive touchscreen LCD with 1500 cd/m² brightness, a Pro EVF option, built-in clear/2/4/6-stop ND filters, dual mini-XLR inputs, an accurate timecode clock, an NP-F570 L-series battery slot, and updated Gen 5 color science.

With only a slightly larger form factor than the 6L, the 6K Pro records the same resolutions up to 50 fps 6144 x 3456 video, and it retains the valuable active Canon EF mount, letting users take advantage of the expansive array of EF/EF-S mount lenses available. The EF mount supports iris, autofocus, and zoom functions using electronic communication when using compatible lenses.

The 6K Pro can turn one frame into two by cropping a second shot from one frame, upscaling to 8K, or simply capturing rich, detailed footage with your favorite EF/EF-S-mount lens. The updated Gen 5 internal color processing makes it easy to intercut 6K Pro, 6K, and BMPCC 4K footage. Record using the internal CFast 2.0 and SD/UHS-II card slots or via the full-size HDMI port to an optional ATEM Mini switcher for live streaming, or output via the USB Type-C port to capture longer clips to an external SSD. The 6K Pro 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 6K Pro retains the familiar controls and menu layout of the 6K model, such as ISO support up to 25,600, 13 stops of dynamic range, and 1920 x 1080 HDR monitor output. Professional audio support now includes two mini XLR inputs with phantom +48V power, a 3.5mm stereo input, a mono speaker, a headphone output, and a built-in stereo mic system.

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 6K Pro internal timecode generator (accessed via the 3.5mm audio port). Then save valuable time by using Resolve to automatically sync your multicamera shots in post.

In addition to the DaVinci Resolve Studio activation key, the 6K Pro comes with a 30W power supply offering simultaneous battery charging, an MP-F570 battery, a lens port cap, and a camera strap. Optional accessories designed specifically for the 6K Pro include the BMPCC Pro EVF and BMPCC Pro Battery Grip, available separately.

Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro Reviews

Image and ease of use unmatched

By Joshua

At it's price, the image you get, the simple menu, and the post-process are unbelievable. Recording in prores is awesome, and makes editing a breeze. In premiere, the prores edits smooth in full quality. The shutter angle is a big plus, so when flipping to HFR you don't need to worry about change shutter speed to keep up. The HFR button is clutch. False color is a great tool to have. This camera will chew through batteries quick (you might get about an hour/hour and a half out of one battery), so make sure you have four or five for a long shoot, or get a v-mount battery and it'll run as long as you need it to. No continuous autofocus or image stabilization, which I like because I can get more creative with my shots. Plus, cameras with this image quality that have AF and IBIS, you're paying a lot more. This is an incredible bang for your buck.

Just got this camera 12/05/21 and started fiddling around with it. Haven't used it on any projects because of work and school. I had B&H sale agent Emmanuel help me with the build. It became a bit heavy. But, after white balancing the shot looks great! I can't wait to see how my school project turns out when I start. I left some pics so you can see my set up. Have a great day!

Review of Black Magic 6K Pro

The camera is perfect. Came out exactly like I'd hoped. The lens we bought was SUPER dirty though :( it was "refurbished" but looked like they hadn't looked at it before boxing it up. They didn't include any bubble wrap either. Just a dirty lens in a box.

It keeps getting better!

I bought the original 6k a few years ago and immediately loved just about everything about it. Now with the 6k Pro the few things I felt were missing from the original 6k have now been added... Two XLR ports, ND filters, and better battery life. With the Sony battery I notice a significant increase in battery life, while it is no where near as robust as say the Canon BP batteries, it is still definitely a step up. The tilt screen is a nice upgrade as well, that along with the new battery, make this my go to camera to use on the Crane 2S. The great looking footage, workflow, and ease of use are exactly the same as the original 6k... and now I have two amazing cameras that I paid less than what I would have paid for another brand with the same quality.

Love It

This says it takes NP-F570 batteries, which basically don't exist. Do standard NP-F550 batteries work? The manual makes no mention of this and BH only sells 1 NP-F570 battery (Blackmagic branded) for about 4x the price of standard NP-F550.
Asked by: Gage
The NP-F550 batteries are the same (physical) size as the NP-F570 batteries, so they should work. However, we have not tested the NP-F550 batteries with the camera and cannot recommend you use them with the camera or Battery Pro Grip.
