Shoots 4K RAW with the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera

Blackmagic Design has released their new version of its Pocket Cinema Camera, the Camera That Shoots 4K RAW

The camera is a long-awaited successor to the original Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera of 2013, which offered 1080p RAW in a tiny camera body.

Blackmagic is known for creating pro video tools, from cameras, to broadcast equipment, to the industry standard color grading software. It’s been releasing smaller cinema cameras in the low-thousand-dollar price range for the past five or so years, which have gained a following among amateur and low-budget filmmakers.

The new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has a full 4/3 HDR sensor, dual native ISO up to 25,600 with incredible low light performance and 13 stops of dynamic range. It features a unique USB-C Expansion Port, which allows customers to record using the internal SD/UHS-II and CFast recorders or directly to the same external disks you can use for editing and colour correction!
The new Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has a ton of features that’ll appeal to that market — like a mini XLR connector, LUT support, and 4K recording at 60 fps

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K can record 4K images at up to 60 frames per second and windowed HD at up to 120 frames per second. It’s also the first camera that lets users record directly onto the same exact external USB-C media drives they use for editing and color correction.

For audio, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features 4 built-in microphones with a low noise floor, a mini XLR input with 48-volts of phantom power to connect professional microphones and a 3.5mm stereo audio jack for connecting different types of video camera microphones.

This camera is made with carbon fiber polycarbonate composite, making it both light and durable. On the right side you’ll find a multi-function grip. This grip allows “quick access” to power, recording start/stop, still photos, ISO, shutter, aperture, white balance, and other functions.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K lets customers shoot images that are far better than DSLR cameras and even better than professional digital film cameras costing tens of thousands more. It will be available from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide later this year for only $1,295.
