Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 Features

The latest firmware revamp, version 7.9, has various enhancements. It includes an adjustable slider for focus-assist intensity, direct selection between SD and SSD media on the LCD screen, frame guide colour alterations, augmented lens control, and autofocus capabilities. The update also supports focus and zoom demands, not exclusively for studio cameras, and enables the recording of gyro sensor data for DaVinci Pro to stabilise footage using this information.

A notable feature of the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 is the Super35 Image Sensor/Dual Native ISO, offering 13 dynamic range stops and dual native 400/3200 ISO up to 25,600, allowing for rich image captures at resolutions as high as 6144 x 3456 at 60 fps. It utilises the Gen 5 colour science akin to the 6K Pro and URSA Mini Pro 12K cameras, simplifying the intercutting of footage from different Blackmagic Cameras with Gen 5.

The active Canon EF Mount is compatible with a diverse range of Canon EF/EF-S lenses and features electronic lens communication capabilities with iris, autofocus, and zoom control with compatible lenses. Audio provision is professional grade, offering two mini XLR inputs with phantom +48V power, a 3.5mm stereo input, a mono speaker, a headphone output, and an inbuilt stereo mic system. The camera operates on the readily available NP-FW570 L-Series battery, with an optional battery grip also available.

The camera's shooting capacities extend up to 6K, with resolutions including 6144 x 3456 (6K), 6144 x 2560 (6K 2.4:1), 5744 x 3024 (5.7K 17:9), 4096 x 2160 (4K DCI), and 1920 x 1080 (HD), plus 2868 x 1512 (2.8K 17:9) and 1920 x 1080 (HD) at rates up to 120 fps. It has versatile media capture capabilities, with internal recording options to CFast 2.0 or SD/UHS-II card slots and extended capture potential using the USB Type-C output to an external SSD. Additionally, it has a built-in colour corrector compatible with Blackmagic ATEM Mini and supports optional pedestal-style zoom and focus controls. Each purchase includes a Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve activation code for Blackmagic Resolve Studio.
