While a styling competence be suggestive of an oversized digital camera from a 1990s, Blackmagic’s Pocket Cinema Camera 4K should be packaged with adequate tech to keep critical video shooters happy.
It’s a second-generation Pocket Cinema Camera from Blackmagic – a first, 1080p, indication was launched behind in 2013 – and a new camera is again formed around a Micro Four Thirds format, that means it can be used with a resources of lenses from Panasonic and Olympus – accessible if you’re sharpened with a likes of a Panasonic Lumix GH5 or GH5S and have built adult an arsenal of lenses – as good as other lens makers such as Leica and Voigtlander.
The Micro Four Thirds sensor offers a twin local ISO with a attraction operation adult to ISO25,600, while it’s also means of sharpened Cinema 4K (4096 x 2160) during adult to 60fps and Full HD during adult to 120fps. Not usually that, though there’s a guarantee of 13 stops of energetic operation for a good low-light performance.

Footage (including 10-bit ProRes and 12-bit tender recording) can be available to UHS-II-compatible SD label or CFast cards, while a USB-C enlargement pier means we can record directly to a same outmost hoop drives that users will use for modifying and tone correction. Clever stuff.
While it’s substantially not going to win any prizes in a looks department, a physique is assembled from CO fiber polycarbonate composite, that should make it both clever and light; there’s also conjecture that this could revoke feverishness rave while recording.
Blackmagic reckons a pattern of a physique lends itself to those sharpened eccentric films and documentaries, conform shows, transport blogs, web videos, weddings, corporate video and sports.
On a back of a camera is a vast 5-inch touchscreen display, enabling users to adjust settings, supplement metadata and perspective recording standing around elementary daub and appropriate gestures. There are also on-screen overlays for recording parameters, status, histogram, concentration and peaking indicators, and playback controls.
There’s no central recover date for a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K yet, though we should be means to get it after this year for what looks to be a really rival cost of $1,295 (around £915 / AU$1,675).
