The Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro includes internal ND and optional EVF



Blackmagic today introduced a new Pocket Cinema 6K Pro that contains features everyone wants in a small compact body. The two major new features are internal neutral density and an optional EVF.

The new Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro now uses Sony NP-F570 batteries which have much better performance than the original Pocket which uses Canon LP-E6 battery. Lens mount is still EF and uses the same CFast-type media.
All Pocket Cinema Camera models include a full version of the DaVinci Resolve Studio.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera has a mini XLR input with 48 volt phantom power for connecting professional microphones. The 6K Pro model has 2 mini XLR connections, to record 2 separate audio tracks using 2 microphones, without an external mixer. The four built-in microphones have an extremely low noise level and are shock and wind resistant. There is also a 3.5mm audio input for connecting camcorder microphones, along with a built-in speaker for playback and a 3.5mm headphone jack similar to the other current Pocket cameras.

Below is the full presentation if you want to see it.

With the same generation 5 color research as the URSA Mini Pro 12K, the new Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro delivers accurate skin tones and true color. With a new dynamic 12-bit gamma curve designed to capture more color data in highlights and shadows, for better photos. Color research also handles some of the complex Blackmagic RAW image processing, so that color and dynamic range data from the sensor is preserved via metadata that customers can use in post-production.

Internal ND filters

Internal ND filters

The inclusion of internal ND is large. It has 2, 4 and 6 stop IR ND filters.
The IR filters are designed to filter both optical and IR wavelengths evenly, which eliminates IR contamination of the images. Activation buttons are located on the back of the camera body, located within reach of the thumb from the multifunction handle. User-selectable filter settings can even be displayed as either ND number, stop reduction or fraction on the LCD screen.

The rear LCD screen is now an adjustable tilt HDR LCD with bright 1500 nit. The screen does not tilt or articulate. This design is similar to the Fujifilm XT-3 design.

Cinema Camera Pro EVF

It’s hard to choose which new feature is my favorite, but I think the addition of an optional EVF must be my best choice.

The new EVF Pro is a 1280 x 960 OLED color and an additional 33% of the screen is dedicated to critical information such as frame rate, histogram, recording status, sound meters and more.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Pro EVF has a 70-degree range of motion and 4 different types of eyecups, with options for left or right eye. The built-in proximity sensor not only activates the viewfinder, but also turns off the LCD touch screen. This saves battery power and prevents you from accidentally changing the camera setup by pressing the touch screen controls.

Battery grip

Similarly, the new Pocket has a Pro Grip battery that also uses two NP batteries that give the camera a nice long run time. Camera Battery Grip pro sells for $ 145 US.

The new Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro marks many boxes that the original models did not, and seems to be an excellent option for all shooting conditions. One feature that was not updated is enhanced autofocus or internal IS such as IBIS.

The new Blackmagic Generation 5 Color Science will be available for all pocket cameras in an upcoming update. This is good news if you want to add 6K Pro to your existing Pocket cameras for Multicam work.

The Pocket 6K Pro sells for $ 2495, which is around $ 400 more than the Pocket 6K, and I think it’s worth every penny. EVF is $ 495 and includes four eye cups.
