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

Game changer

By Cameron
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-10

It's incredible how far the pocket cinema line has come. This is now my primary camera - the addition of the dual mini XLR jacks and timecode support removes any hesitation I had of using previous versions of the pocket cinema camera. The quality of the footage, especially using the braw format, is spectacular. The UI is some of the easiest to use on any camera, and the ability to record straight to a hard drive is a game changer. I would highly recommend a few accessories to make this camera work best - namely the battery grip, without which you won't last long unplugged from power - and a cage for additional mounting points, which is crucial if you're recording directly to a hard drive. Out of the box, you can't even mount a mic directly to the body. Overall though, it's an incredibly portable and affordable powerhouse of a camera.

If you care about image quality, you'll get this.

Best bang for your buck filmmaking camera out there. If you know how to use these correctly, the image you'll get is unmatchable for the price point. I got three for our style of work and they've been fantastic. The internal ND filters, the two mini-XLRs, the internal RAW recording, the inclusion of shutter angle, the variety of storage options, and the easy-to-control user interface make these Pockets untouchable at this price point. If you want autofocus and low-light performance, get a Sony. Otherwise, learn to use focus peaking and how to light correctly, and you'll make magic happen, baby.

Budget cinema camera but not super reliable

By Yousuke
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-23

I have been using the camera for small-scaled doc-style projects and corporate shoots for about a and a half and it's been great. I have a rig for it to power the camera via a gold mount battery so that I'm not dealing with constantly swapping batteries. I pair it with the sigma art 18-35mm and 50-100mm which gives me a good enough range. I like the images that come out of the camera and the capability to shoot RAW or ProRes, both very easy to work in post. I'm not crazy about the crop when going to high speed, I wish it had other crop modes aside from 6K, 5.7K and 2.8K because the jump between 5.7K and 2.8K is pretty significant. The internal ND is wonderful although mine got stuck and wouldn't move after about a year of use. Luckily I was still under the warranty and was able to swap out for a new one. My current camera is now giving me some issues not turning on at times after flicking the power button on. Also, the colors on the image out of the hdmi output gets messed up when I switch from live to playback mode and I have to unplug and replug the hdmi cable each time which can get annoying and awkward when you're trying to show playback to your director or client from the camera. All in all, if it's small scaled shoots/personal projects, I think it's a solid option especially given its price but I wouldn't bring it for bigger productions because I feel like it's just not reliable enough.

Terrible for action shooting and in low light and the vast amount of storage it requires makes it useless if like me, you're using it for a documentary. I kept it for 2 frustrating weeks and found my iPhone 13 pro max shooting in Pro Res 423 was in every practical sense a far better camera. Just got the 14 and it's even better.

Camera monitor glitch/flicker issue on bmpcc 6k pro

By Colin
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-02

Hey there! I've used this camera on maybe 3-5 projects nothing crazy at all. And I noticed the built in screen on bmpcc 6k pro buttons would start glitching and it would press a bunch of buttons as if I wear doing it. Sometimes it would just stop recording right in the middle of video. I tried updating firmware online thinking that would fix the issue but has not! Can someone please send me a bmpcc 6kpro that actually works?? I spent $2,500 on a malfunctioning camera...

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.
