LAS VEGAS – Blackmagic Design has unveiled the all-new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, a handheld digital film camera with full 4/3 HDR sensor, dual native ISO with up to 25600 ISO for low-light performance as well as 13 stops of dynamic range.
The camera also eliminates expensive external recorders, as it features a unique new 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 they will use for editing and color correction.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is being demonstrated at the company’s booth (SL 216) during NAB; the camera will be available from Blackmagic Design resellers later this year for $1,295.
The compact body style of the camera is perfect for shooting independent films and documentaries, fashion shows, travel blogs, web videos, weddings, corporate video, sports and much more.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is packed with features such as a MFT lens mount, large five-inch touchscreen monitor, 10-bit ProRes and 12-bit RAW recording, 3D LUTs, four built in microphones, mini XLR audio input with phantom power, Bluetooth wireless camera control, HDMI on set monitoring output and more.
Fourth-generation Blackmagic Design color science lets customers shoot HDR images in film, video and new extended video modes. The new extended mode combines the latitude of digital film with an optimized video file. This gives customers working on fast turnaround projects an ideal solution for shooting great looking images that don’t need a lot of color correction or post production work.
