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

You get what you pay for

By John
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-20

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.

The reel deal

Very impressed with this system. Coming from only shooting motion on Canon DSLR and Mirrorless, the Black Magic system takes some real learning, the menus are excellent as are the features. You need many batteries to shoot on location and a lot of available storage.

For what it is

By Robby

Getting back into video/film after a small 15 year vacation. Being a cinematographer/videographer for over 25 years. I hate to sound like the old guy, but yes I've been around this business since the dinosaur days. I haven't had much time with this camera, but I love it thus far. For the price it seems to shoot a great picture with the right lenses. I do like the professional camera feel (ease of use). I have tried shooting here and there with "DSLR" type cameras, but they didn't feel like the pro cine cameras I've worked with in the past, where as this so far has more of the feel I'm use to. I personally am a believer in "buy what works for the job." This camera seems to have what I personally need. The image is close to some of the more pricey cameras out there. But from years of experience in the digital world, I realize a $50,000 camera can be out of date in just 3 years. Guess I would rather have a $2500 out dated camera than a $50,000 out dated camera. But once again. To each their own. I'll shoot with it a bit more and give all my brothers and sisters out there an update. Keep the love real, and support each other. Take care.

The definitive version

Been using Blackmagic cameras for 10 years now and have enjoyed each one despite their idiosyncrasies. However, the 6k pro for me has finally cracked the formula and is the best camera by Blackmagic to date. The NDs are well designed and have no image degradation, the mount, while old by modern standards, has the largest compatible lens line up and has no electronic connection quirks that I've found. The image sensor has phenomenal dynamic range and paired with the built in raw codecs is capable of recovering incredible detail from even the most botched recording job. 10/10, will be using this camera for the next 5 years at least.

Mejor cmara de cine por su precio

Pequeas cosas a tener en cuenta en esta GRAN cmara que tanto dio para hablar: La batera dura poco: Considerar comprar muchas o el rig de baterias, o batera externa. Tambin un buen cargador, idealmente doble. El almacenamiento es importante y complejo: Evaluar las dos grandes opciones. O tarjetas de memoria de gran velocidad y capacidad. O los SAMSUNG portable SSD. La relacin calidad precio en cuanto a la capacidad en esas dos opciones, hace que sea importante estudiar las dos posibilidades y elegir la mejor segn nuestras necesidades y posibilidades.

Run and gun (outside even)

By Joshua
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-18

If you prefer a smaller set up, it is finally possible to use this thing without a rig for run and gun shoots. Smaller meaning no rig, this body is a bit bigger than prev. New screen works even in sun. Battery life is MUCH better than original 6K but you'll still need a bunch of spare batteries and/or the battery grip. If you are going to rig it out w cage, matte box, v-mount, monitor then the regular 6K G2 would probably be fine for you. Love Blackmagic image quality!

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.
