Blackmagic Design’s new Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro is a Super 35 camera with tilting screen, built-in ND filters and more
Blackmagic Design has announced the latest camera in its Pocket Cinema Camera lineup, the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro (BMPCC6KP), an EF-mount Super 35mm cinema camera with a tilting touchscreen LCD display, built-in ND filter and more.
The announcement, which you can view in its entirety below (the BMPCC6KP announcement starts about 80 minutes in), shows off a familiar form factor with a number of improvements Blackmagic customers have been asking for. Most significantly, the BMPCC6KP now has a 5" tilting touchscreen LCD display (1920 x 1080 pixels) on the rear of the camera that puts out 1500 nits of brightness.
Another improvement is a built-in motor-driven ND filter with 2, 4 and 6 stop increments. Blackmagic says the IR filters are designed to filter both optical and infrared (IR) wavelengths. To improve battery life of the BMPCC6KP over its predecessors, which used Canon LP-E6 batteries, this new camera now runs off Sony NP-F570 batteries: a staple in the video industry for powering all sorts of cameras, lights and accessories.
Blackmagic Design says the camera features its 5th generation color science, which was first seen in Blackmagic Design’s URSA Mini Pro 12K camera. Blackmagic Design says Pocket Cinema 4K and 6K users will also receive this updated color science via a firmware update within the next few months.
Other features include SD UHS-II and CFast 2.0 storage slots, USB-C media disk recording and a pair of mini XLR audio inputs (the 4K and 6K only have one).
For those who want something more than the tilting LCD display, Blackmagic Design has also created a new external viewfinder that can mount to the top of the camera and comes with four swappable eyepieces for a customized fit. Also new is a Pro Grip, which will hold two NP-570 batteries instead of one.
The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro is available to purchase for $2,495. The external viewfinder and Pro Grip will cost $495 and $145, but no release date has been specified at this time.
