Designed to be portable, packed with features and fully expandable!

Elegant Modern Design

The portable handheld design of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K gives you incredible mobility without sacrificing features. The highly compact form factor features a carbon fiber reinforced composite body that makes it extremely durable and lightweight so you can take it anywhere. You get a super bright 5” screen, 4 built in microphones, built in recorders and external buttons and dials that give you fast access to the most important functions. That means you can quickly check framing and focus, capture audio and record your files without having to carry around extra monitors, microphones, recorders and cables. You also get lots of mounting points, a mini XLR input with phantom power, Bluetooth control and more. With the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K you get a fully featured portable digital film camera that’s flexible and expandable!

Carbon fiber reinforced body for extra durability!

Designed using a space age carbon fiber polycarbonate composite, the body of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is extremely strong and light. The carbon composite material consists of a high strength polymer that’s reinforced with carbon fibers. This makes the camera body incredibly light giving it the strength and rigidity to protect it from bangs, drops and accidental breakage. That means you’ll be able to take the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K virtually anywhere and have the confidence to know that you’ll be able to get your shots, even under the harshest shooting conditions!

Multifunction controls at your fingertips!

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a familiar and comfortable design that has been specifically developed for shooting video so you get controls that go far beyond those found on traditional DSLR cameras. The multi function grip, which has buttons and dials placed logically for finger tip control, allows super fast access to all essential shooting functions. You get controls for recording start/stop, still photos, ISO, shutter, aperture, white balance, function buttons, power on/off and more. If you’ve ever shot with a DSLR, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K will feel very familiar, but the images will look far better!

Incredibly bright 5 inch touchscreen and monitor!

You’ll never have to carry around a separate monitor for focussing a high resolution shot when you’re shooting with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. That’s because it features a built in super bright 5 inch touchscreen monitor that’s perfect for framing shots and checking focus. You can even double tap on the LCD to zoom in, turn on focus peaking, focus assist and more! Plus you can use the touchscreen to access the Blackmagic OS, which lets you control all of the cameras advanced functions with simple tap and swipe gestures. You can even add metadata using the built in digital slate!

Incredible low light performance for 4K HDR shooting!

The full size 4/3 sensor has a native resolution of 4096 x 2160 and can capture up to 13 stops of dynamic range. The sensor size is designed to match the MFT lenses, so there’s minimal crop factor which gives you a wider field of view. With dual native ISO up to 25,600, you also get excellent low light performance! You can also shoot at up to 60 frames per second for 4K and 120 frames per second for HD. Unlike other small cameras, the high performance sensor has fast refresh rates, even when shooting at low frame rates, so you get rock solid images that don’t have wobbly shutter artifacts.

Incredibly high quality built in microphones, plus mini XLR!

Designed from the ground up to capture amazing high fidelity audio with incredible clarity, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features 4 built in microphones with extremely low noise for capturing the subtle detail in live sound. All this means professional audio is a major design goal for this camera. There’s also a mini XLR input with 48 volts of phantom power for connecting professional boom and lapel microphones. You can also use the 3.5mm input to connect standard video camera microphones. With the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, you get professional quality audio with flexible options for microphones!

Record using standard SD cards, UHS-II cards or CFast 2.0 media!

When it comes to recording, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K gives you 3 kinds of media to choose from. Images can be recorded on to standard SD cards, faster UHS-II cards or CFast 2.0 cards. High definition video can be recorded using regular inexpensive SD cards. Higher performance UHS-II cards can be used for recording Ultra HD in ProRes at up to 60 frames per second and RAW at up to 30 frames per second. CFast cards can record 12-bit RAW at all supported frame rates. For longer recording times, you can also record directly to an external SSD or flash disk using the built in USB-C Expansion Port! Best of all, there’s nothing proprietary. The files will work with all professional post production software. You can even mount the media cards on your computer and start editing directly from them using the included DaVinci Resolve Studio software!

Designed for recording direct to disk, plus future expandability!

USB-C has become the new standard on everything from computers to cell phones, because it’s very fast, provides both power and data, and has an extremely small connector. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K includes a USB-C Expansion Port so you can connect peripherals such as a flash disk or SSD for long recording times. Once your recording is complete, you can simply unplug the disk and connect it to your edit workstation. The USB-C connection also handles power, so you can use a standard computer power supply or power pack to charge the internal battery!

The connections you need for expanding and rigging the camera!

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a full size HDMI connector with support for HDR output, plus you get support for a clean 10-bit HDMI output with or without overlays for on set monitoring. There’s also a mini XLR connection with 48 volts of phantom power for attaching professional microphones, and a 3.5 mm video camera style microphone input. The 3.5mm microphone input will accept LTC timecode from an external source. You also get a professional camera style locking DC power connector. For wireless connectivity and control, you can even use Bluetooth, as well as customizing your own control solutions with the Blackmagic Bluetooth control developer SDK!

MFT Lens Mount

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K uses the same MFT (Micro Four Thirds) lens mount as the original Pocket Cinema Camera so you can use the lenses you already have! The MFT lens mount was designed specifically for smaller camera bodies with shorter flange focal distance. This means you can get high quality professional lenses that are much smaller than ever before! The MFT mount is extremely flexible and allows for different lens adapters. You can get adapters for PL, C, EF and more, so you can use lenses from manufacturers such as Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Leica and even Panavision!
