Carbon Fiber Body
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.
Super Bright Touchscreen
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.
High Resolution, Low Light Sensor
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.
True Professional Audio
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.
USB-C Expansion Port
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.
