Our Blackmagic Pocket 4K cameras have been updated to Firmware 6.6 which includes 80 FPS in a 2.8K raw for 4:3 anamorphic and up to 75 FPS in a 4K raw in 2.4:1 widescreen. A 2x de-squeeze preview is now available for 4:3 recording as well as 1.33x de-squeeze. Slow-motion rates up to 120 FPS are available in 2.6K raw for Super16 lenses and in cropped Full HD. Other updates included in this firmware: support for the Pocket battery Grip, built-in horizon level function, USB PTP control, customizable frame guides, 8x pinch-to-zoom function, embedding custom LUTs as metadata in Blackmagic Raw.
The Blackmagic Pocket 4K is the much-anticipated update to the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera. The original offered a unique set of video features in a very sleek and affordable package and Blackmagic expanded on this with the new version. Responding to the video prowess of competitors like Panasonic with their GH5S, Blackmagic has overhauled their unique pocket camera to keep up with the shooting demands of current videographers while maintaining vlogger-friendly functions.
4K Sensor with Dual Native ISO
The new, wider Four Thirds sensor features 13 stops of dynamic range, Dual Native ISO, and can shoot uncompressed 12-bit Cinema DNG Raw over USB-C to an external drive or to one of two high-speed card slots (CFast 2.0 and UHS-II SD). All this without sacrificing an active, electronically-controlled Micro Four Thirds mount, allowing for a wide range of portable lens options. Sitting between the Film and Video modes is a new Extended Video Mode that preserves highlights and shadows while taking advantage of Blackmagic's color science for ready-to-use footage that needs little-to-no grading.
Portable, Robust Design with Professional Options
The highly-compact form factor is wrapped in carbon fiber, keeping the Blackmagic Pocket 4K durable and lightweight. Well-placed controls and a rubberized hand grip make it comfortable to use even over long periods of time. Equipped with the same OS as the URSA Mini, you can easily navigate settings and monitor footage on the huge 5" 1080p touchscreen.
Audio options have been expanded. Capture great sound on location using the four built-in microphones situated on either side of the lens mount. To upgrade to external mics, you have a choice of a 3.5mm input or a mini-XLR socket with 48V phantom power. Among the ports you'll also find a full-size HDMI connector that's compatible with advanced features, like HDR or clean 10-bit out with on-screen overlays showing full camera status ideal for use with optional external monitors.
Power all of this with the convenient and common lP-E6 type battery. The USB-C Expansion Port accepts power from optional battery packs, allowing you to shoot all day. There is also a DC-in socket for pairing with optional broadcast-style batteries. An extremely quiet fan keeps the system cool, with air intakes placed at the top of the body so that the whole thing can be shot from the ground or mounted without any obstruction of cooling.
Extreme Flexibility for Every Shooting Style
Blackmagic packed not only high-end specs into a very small camera but also maintained conveniences common to small systems. Thanks to a variety of front button features, as well as a forward-facing record button, YouTubers will feel right at home with this camera. Menus have been kept clutter-free, with everything laid out in an intuitive and easy-to-read way. The function buttons can be mapped to a variety of preferred settings. Excelling in flexibility, the Blackmagic Pocket 4K is ideal for run-and-gun projects, documentary filmmaking, vloggers, and videography novices and experts alike.
