Blackmagic Design has launched the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K - its latest compact camera for cinematography.
The new camera looks similar to the 4K camera introduced last year but it has a bigger sensor allowing it to shoot in Super 35 format (similar to APS-C) with a resolution of 6144 x 3456.
An added benefit to the Super 35-switch will allow for much better low-light performance and control over depth of field.
The 6K camera also uses Canon’s EF lens mount, rather than the 4K’s Micro Four Thirds, and Blackmagic is claiming 13 stops of dynamic range with dual native ISO of 400 and 25,600.The Pocket Cinema Camera 6K has a lot of connectivity: mini XLR, full-size HDMI, USB-C, DC power, mic input, and headphone output. The camera is largely operated by the same five-inch touchscreen as the 4K model. It can shoot up to 50 fps at 6144 x 3456 16:9, 60 fps at 6144 x 2560 2.4:1, or 120 fps at 2.8K 2868 x 1512 17:9.
The Pocket Cinema Camera 6K is priced at $2,495.
