You say affordable, high quality video and I’m there!
Blackmagic- Killing it with its new revolutionary Pocket Cinema Camera 6K.
Blackmagic is gaining a strong competitive advantage over their competitors with this little pocket number. It has a larger sensor, 12-bit RAW and 6K resolution going way past the feats of their older 4K model, that had already changed the game of affordable high quality video for good.
4K, 6K or 8K?
6K is a good thing coming. Although many of us are expecting 8K to become the industry norm a lot of us are still delivering in HD with 4K being the firmly established go-to format. However, 6K is making a come up and it’s so easy to see why. It’s the next best thing for professional and consumer cameras. A nice sweet spot before 8K without the enormous data package and a visually stunning boost from the 4K format.
It keeps things where I like it, cheap-ish.
Blackmagic’s New Pocket Cinema Camera 6K outputs a sharper RAW 6K Video with more color precision than you’d find in similar mirrorless cameras on the market. It’s surprisingly affordable for independent filmmakers and the ones that are on their way to becoming professional DP’s.
Designed for Manual Focus.
This is not a camera for casual, easy use. There’s no continuous autofocus, eye-tracking, stabilization or any other auto systems, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K is going to take some focus to work with- because it’s designed for manual focus. However, there’s a focus assist that lays red lines over parts of the image that are in focus and you can zoom in by two times to see a clearer subject.
So, this Blackmagic Camera is surely made for high end professional video shooters or independent filmmakers looking to get their films into festivals. In terms of image, it outperforms most other mirrorless video cameras and some would say even expensive cinema cameras. It allows for more flexibility for those willing to learn how to work with it.
