Gen 5 Color
The 6K G2 uses the same advanced Gen 5 color science as the 6K Pro and URSA Mini Pro 12K cameras, making it easy to intercut 6K Pro, 6K, and BMPCC 4K footage
Tilting 5" LCD Touchscreen
  • The 5" tilting HDR touchscreen LCD makes it easy to view and adjust your settings
  • The tilt function is especially useful when shooting in high or low modes

L-Series Batteries
Both the 6K G2 camera and the optional battery grip use widely available NP-F570 L-series batteries
Blackmagic Raw and ProRes Recording
  • Capture in Blackmagic Raw or ProRes 422 options, depending on your project's needs, and record using the internal CFast 2.0 and SD/UHS-II card slots
  • Record via the full-size HDMI port to an optional ATEM Mini switcher for live streaming
  • Output via the USB Type-C port to capture longer clips to an external SSD

Horizontal or Vertical Capture

Does support Sony lenses?
Asked by: EDUARDO
The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 (B&H# BL6KPKCAMG2) possesses a mount that is Canon EF/EF-S compatible and will therefore only accept lenses of that type. To date, no Blackmagic Design camera accepts Sony A or E/FE mount lenses. The most similar cinema camera in this general price range for video that accepts E mount lenses would be the Sony FX3 Full-Frame Cinema Camera (B&H# SOFX3): https://bhpho.to/3AjdC2g

Does the camera body have an external hot shoe so you can mount a monitor, microphone or an external flash to the camera body?
Asked by: Dennis
Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 has a 1/4-20 thread, not a cold shoe accessory. You can add screw down cold shoe. However if you would be mounting multiple accesories to the camera we recomend considering a dedicated cage.

what's the main difference between 6k pro and G2 versions?
Asked by: Hayk
Because the 6K G2 came out after the 6K Pro and has the 2 in its name many people are confused and think the G2 is an Upgrade. The G2 is actually a down grade from the Pro as they took out the ND filters, lowered the screed brightness and lowered the PRICE! This camera was made to service those of us who plan to use it more for indoor broadcast scenarios like a multi camera shoot with the ATEM Mini Switcher. We still have a great camera that can be used for cinema if we choose to. Thank you Blackmagic Design!
