About this deal

I haven’t yet used the camera enough to review it in any depth, but I thought this summary of its pros and cons might be useful to those out there considering their own purchase. It is the two 1/4-inch balanced audio inputs that will record quality line or mic level sound although there is no phantom power.

You get a modern touchscreen interface that uses simple tap and swipe gestures to adjust settings, add metadata and view recording status.I see a lot of producers and DPs looking at this camera for their next short film, music video or commercial. Designed for broadcast and live production, you get a 6K sensor with +36dB of gain, wide dynamic range and B4 lens mount. Blackmagic OS is a true modern operating system where all camera features run independently for smoother control, plus the camera powers on virtually instantly. The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K has three 1/4-inch mounting holes on the top and one on the bottom with a locator pin for added security.

For my short, I rented an Anton Bauer battery, but because most of the individual shoots were brief, I only used it on several occasions. So there appears to be something more than just firmware going on that allows the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K to work with a greater variety of lenses. The camera's ability to expose for 12 stops of dynamic range lends the image a truly film-like look, and the Super 35mm (21.

Think about it: ProRes 422 in 4K and 1080, Loss less compressing coming via firmware, sometime soon, and a Global Shutter. An amazing sensor combined with Blackmagic color science means you get the same imaging technology as the most expensive digital film cameras. The camera is capable of recording Ultra HD 4K in the visually lossless, compressed CinemaDNG RAW or Apple ProRes 422 (HQ). The back of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a super bright, large 5 inch touchscreen. Budget-conscious filmmakers, documentarians and commercial producers that are looking for a quality imaging tool owe it to themselves to check out the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K.

Battery extender and hand grip for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro lets you shoot continuously for over 3 hours! More advanced 6K model featuring a larger 6144 x 3456 Super 35 wide dynamic range sensor and EF lens mount. This means the higher the ISO number the more sensitivity to light so it’s possible to shoot using natural light even at night! Most people don’t realize, however, that you can only take full advantage of that dynamic range in RAW. It includes a 6G-SDI connection for Ultra HD resolution or down converted HD output over a single SDI cable.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is designed to be used worldwide and supports 13 different languages! Ultimatte 12 includes next generation edge handling, amazing color separation and better spill suppression. The Blackmagic cameras are not designed for low-light photography, which is why the Speed Booster is so valuable on the Pocket Camera (you can also use it on the Cinema Camera).
