Australian company Blackmagic Design has introduced a new Pocket Cinema Camera 6K with a larger matrix size, the ability to record video at a resolution of 6K and the support of the Canon lenses with the EF lens mount. Compared with the 4K-version of the new product is much better to cope with shooting in conditions close to overexposure.
The camera's form factor remains the same as its predecessor BMPCC 4K: controls, location of function keys and connection ports — all in the same places. The new product is fully compatible with all accessories designed for Pocket Cinema Camera 4K.
Among the key features of Pocket Cinema Camera 6K it is worth noting:
- Ability to record 6K video at 60 frames per second.
- Compatible with all Canon lenses designed for EF bayonet mount. At the same time, the manufacturer claims support for autofocus and electronic stabilization without installing additional adapters.
- Increased the size of the sensor. The new camera has a matrix size of 12.9 x 23.1 mm against 10 x 18.96 in the 4K version.
- The camera includes 13 stops of dynamic range when shooting in 10-bit mode and HDR. The maximum ISO is 25 600 units.
Compared to its predecessor, Pocket Cinema Camera 6K has become a bit heavier: 898 grams versus 721 grams of the 4K version.
The battery used in the model remains the same - the same battery LP-E6. Its capacity is enough to record 45-minute video in a maximum resolution of 6K RAW with a preset display brightness of 50%.
The cost of Pocket Cinema Camera 6K is $ 2495. The model is already available for order. The first deliveries will start on August 12.
