The revolutionary new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is the camera you’ve been asking for. It features an all new handheld design that puts the latest advanced digital film technology into the palm of your hand. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has a 4/3 size sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range and dual native ISO up to 25,600. That means you get stunning HDR images and incredible low light performance. The external controls give you quick access to essential functions, while the large 5 inch touchscreen makes it easy to frame shots, focus accurately and change camera settings. Images are recorded onto standard SD/UHS-II or CFast 2.0 cards in RAW and ProRes at up to 120 frames per second. In addition, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has an MFT lens mount, built-in microphones, mini XLR input, full sized HDMI, 3D LUT support, Bluetooth, USB-C Expansion Port and more.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K gives you the professional features you need, all in a portable and affordable design that can be used anywhere. It’s perfect for shooting independent films and documentaries, fashion shows, travel blogs, web videos, weddings, corporate video, sports and more. The incredible image quality, advanced Blackmagic Design colour science and RAW recording features let you shoot images that rival professional digital film cameras costing tens of thousands more. That means you get the image quality you need to seamlessly mix footage from the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K with other types of cameras used on high end Hollywood feature films and episodic television shows.

The portable handheld design of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K gives you incredible mobility without sacrificing features. The highly compact form factor features a carbon fiber reinforced composite body that makes it extremely durable and lightweight so you can take it anywhere. You get a super bright 5” screen, 4 built in microphones, built in recorders and external buttons and dials that give you fast access to the most important functions. That means you can quickly check framing and focus, capture audio and record your files without having to carry around extra monitors, microphones, recorders and cables. You also get lots of mounting points, a mini XLR input with phantom power, Bluetooth control and more. With the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K you get a fully featured portable digital film camera that’s flexible and expandable.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a full size 4/3 sensor that gives you 4096 x 2160 resolution with an incredible 13 stops of dynamic range for true digital film quality. Because it’s full size, the 4/3 sensor reduces crop factor, giving you a wider field of view. It also has dual native ISO up to 25,600 so you get incredible low light performance. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K can record at up to 60 frames per second in 4K and up to a massive 120 frames per second for windowed HD. The camera features fourth generation Blackmagic Design colour science with film, video and extended video modes. The new extended mode gives you the latitude of film with the convenience of video, so you get great looking images without having to do a lot of work in post production.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K uses the same MFT (Micro Four Thirds) lens mount as the original Pocket Cinema Camera so you can use the lenses you already have. The MFT lens mount was designed specifically for smaller camera bodies with shorter flange focal distance. This means you can get high quality professional lenses that are much smaller than ever before.The MFT mount is extremely flexible and allows for different lens adapters. You can get adapters for PL, C, EF and more, so you can use lenses from manufacturers such as Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Leica and even Panavision.

When it comes to recording, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K gives you 3 kinds of media to choose from. Images can be recorded on to standard SD cards, faster UHS-II cards or CFast 2.0 cards. High definition video can be recorded using regular inexpensive SD cards. Higher performance UHS-II cards can be used for recording Ultra HD in ProRes at up to 60 frames per second and RAW at up to 30 frames per second. CFast cards can record 12-bit RAW at all supported frame rates. For longer recording times, you can also record directly to an external SSD or flash disk using the built in USB-C Expansion Port. Best of all, there’s nothing proprietary. The files will work with all professional post production software. You can even mount the media cards on your computer and start editing directly from them using the included DaVinci Resolve Studio software.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features an innovative high speed USB-C Expansion Port. USB-C is fast, flexible and even provides power, so it’s quickly becoming standard on all modern computers and devices. The massive bandwidth of USB-C makes it possible to connect external accessories such as flash drives and SSDs for significantly longer recording times. This can be important when shooting high quality lossless 12-bit RAW or even high frame rate 60 frame per second 4K. Best of all, when you’re done shooting you can use the same drive for editing and post production.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K uses the same Blackmagic OS as URSA Mini. That means you get the world’s most advanced camera operating system and many of the same professional features found on larger cameras. If you’re just getting started, you can learn how to use the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K today and move up to an URSA Mini when you’re ready. If you already use an URSA Mini, there’s nothing new to learn. You get a modern touchscreen interface that uses simple tap and swipe gestures to adjust settings, add metadata and view recording status. The Blackmagic OS gives you incredible control of advanced camera features including 3D LUTs for both recording and monitoring, HDR output via HDMI, metadata entry, custom presets, extended video format, Bluetooth remote control, external timecode from the audio input, RAW recording and more.

The back of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a super bright, large 5 inch touchscreen. This makes it easy for you to frame shots and accurately focus, without having to carry around an external monitor or viewfinder. You get the same menus and interface found on URSA Mini cameras, including on screen overlays for recording parameters, status, histogram, focus and peaking indicators, and playback controls. In addition, you can apply 3D LUTs so you can monitor the shot with the desired color and look. Not only can you use the 3D LUT for monitoring, it can even be baked into the recorded footage. There’s even a speaker located near the screen, which makes it easy to quickly play back and review shots on set.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K gives you professional high fidelity audio recording so you don’t have to carry around a separate sound recorder. The camera features a mini XLR input with 48 volts of phantom power for connecting professional microphones such as lapel mics and booms. There are also built in microphones with an extremely low noise floor so you can capture great sound on location. There’s even a 3.5mm stereo audio jack so you can use different types of video camera microphones.

Even though it’s small and portable, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has a full size HDMI connector built in.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K uses standard removable LP-E6 type batteries. You also get a locking DC power connector so it can’t be accidentally disconnected in the middle of a shoot. The included 110 - 220 volt plug pack can be used to simultaneously power the camera and charge the LP-E6 battery.

Whether you’re shooting a wedding, documentary, travel blog, or even an independent film, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K packs incredible high end features into a portable design that’s affordable enough to be used on any type of production. The compact size gives you the mobility to get shots from any angle, while professional features such as 12-bit RAW recording give you true digital film quality, all at a price that’s affordable enough for young filmmakers, educators, corporate and wedding videographers and more.

Because it’s so small and easy to travel with, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is ideal for travel blogs and food videos. You can shoot using the advanced video mode which gives you great looking footage that you don’t have to color correct. That makes it much faster when you need to edit quickly and go straight to the web. The SD cards, UHS-II and CFast cards are small and inexpensive, which makes it easy to carry enough of them to last the entire trip. Whether you’re in a foreign country or at a local street food festival, you’ll always have enough media to capture your adventure.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is perfect for shooting documentary films. With its 4K sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range, and dual native ISO up to 25,600, you’ll get incredible images whether you’re shooting in low light or broad daylight. The ¼” thread mounting point lets you quickly set it up on a tripod. It’s also small enough to be inconspicuous when shooting outdoor nature projects. The built in microphones make it possible to capture incredible ambient sounds out in the wild. For indoor shooting, the small size makes the camera less intimidating so your talent will be more comfortable when giving on camera interviews. Documentary filmmakers also have a tendency to shoot a lot of material. The camera features a USB‑C Expansion Port which is perfect for connecting direct to a flash disk or SSD so you can shoot for hours, connect the same media disk to your computer and instantly start editing.

The incredible 4/3 image sensor and MFT lens mount let you shoot with inexpensive, high quality wide angle lenses so you can get dynamic shots of extreme action sport athletes such as skaters and snow boarders. Best of all, because the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is so small and includes everything you need, it’s perfect for run and gun, guerrilla style shooting. Plus, unlike large sensor cameras, you get just the right blend of wide depth of field so you don't need to chase focus all the time, yet it still has enough shallow depth of field to keep shots looking cinematic. Imagine capturing all the excitement using high frame rate 60 frames per second 4K or an incredible 120 frames per second for regular HD. You’ll be able to work faster than ever so you can get in position, get the shot you need, and get out quickly.

Everybody wants a beautiful wedding video, but nobody wants a large crew with a massive camera to disrupt their special day. You can operate it by yourself and the built in handle has multifunction controls that let you move around quickly. You get incredible cinematic quality 10-bit ProRes and 12-bit RAW recording that’s far better than traditional DSLR cameras. The CFast 2.0 cards are perfect for shooting short segments or guest interviews in Ultra HD. Plus, the camera’s small design is less intimidating for guests. For longer shoots, like during the ceremony, simply attach a flash disk or SSD directly via the USB-C Expansion Port. Now you can shoot weddings in stunning 4K without disrupting the guests. The incredible dynamic range makes it easy to shoot both inside and outside. The bride, groom and guests won’t even know you’re shooting video.

You get a 4K camera with amazing low light performance and true lossless 12-bit RAW recording that rivals cameras costing tens of thousands more.

Shots can be played back on the built in LCD or via HDMI on a television, so it’s easy to review shots with the crew, check framing and focus, and see camera settings with the on screen overlays. You even get DaVinci Resolve Studio for free, so you’ll have everything you need to shoot, edit, color, mix and master your film. Now you can afford a true digital film camera so you never have to use a DSLR again.

If you're shooting yourself, the front mounted record button and tally light makes it super easy to confirm that the camera is on and recording.

The unique portable design of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K makes it perfect for use on everything from student films to big studio features.

Designed using a space age carbon fiber polycarbonate composite, the body of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is extremely strong and light. The carbon composite material consists of a high strength polymer that’s reinforced with carbon fibers. This makes the camera body incredibly light giving it the strength and rigidity to protect it from bangs, drops and accidental breakage. That means you’ll be able to take the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K virtually anywhere and have the confidence to know that you’ll be able to get your shots, even under the harshest shooting conditions.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a familiar and comfortable design that has been specifically developed for shooting video so you get controls that go far beyond those found on traditional DSLR cameras. The multi function grip, which has buttons and dials placed logically for finger tip control, allows super fast access to all essential shooting functions. You get controls for recording start/stop, still photos, ISO, shutter, aperture, white balance, function buttons, power on/off and more. If you’ve ever shot with a DSLR, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K will feel very familiar, but the images will look far better.

You’ll never have to carry around a separate monitor for focussing a high resolution shot when you’re shooting with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. That’s because it features a built in super bright 5 inch touchscreen monitor that’s perfect for framing shots and checking focus. You can even double tap on the LCD to zoom in, turn on focus peaking, focus assist and more.  Plus you can use the touchscreen to access the Blackmagic OS, which lets you control all of the cameras advanced functions with simple tap and swipe gestures. You can even add metadata using the built in digital slate.

The full size 4/3 sensor has a native resolution of 4096 x 2160 and can capture up to 13 stops of dynamic range. The sensor size is designed to match the MFT lenses, so there’s minimal crop factor which gives you a wider field of view. With dual native ISO up to 25,600, you also get excellent low light performance. You can also shoot at up to 60 frames per second for 4K and 120 frames per second for HD. Unlike other small cameras, the high performance sensor has fast refresh rates, even when shooting at low frame rates, so you get rock solid images that don’t have wobbly shutter artifacts.

Designed from the ground up to capture amazing high fidelity audio with incredible clarity, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features 4 built in microphones with extremely low noise for capturing the subtle detail in live sound. All this means professional audio is a major design goal for this camera. There’s also a mini XLR input with 48 volts of phantom power for connecting professional boom and lapel microphones. You can also use the 3.5mm input to connect standard video camera microphones. With the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, you get professional quality audio with flexible options for microphones.

USB-C has become the new standard on everything from computers to cell phones, because it’s very fast, provides both power and data, and has an extremely small connector. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K includes a USB-C Expansion Port so you can connect peripherals such as a flash disk or SSD for long recording times. Once your recording is complete, you can simply unplug the disk and connect it to your edit workstation. The USB-C connection also handles power, so you can use a standard computer power supply or power pack to charge the internal battery.

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features the same advanced Blackmagic OS software as URSA Mini, making it super fast to use and more intuitive than ever. All important camera functions can be accessed with a single tap on the new heads up display, there’s an elegant new digital slate that makes metadata entry a breeze, and a dashboard that uses simple tap and swipe gestures for record settings, monitoring, audio, camera setup, presets and 3D LUTs. Each camera feature runs as a separate high performance app which means that you get greater stability than other simple camera software. Best of all, we’ll be able to add even more great new features in the future.

The heads up display, or HUD, contains critical information such as the frame rate, iris, timecode, shutter angle, white balance, ISO, audio levels and more. You can show or hide the heads up display by simply swiping up or down. For example, you can adjust settings such as white balance simply by touching the WB indicator, or change the audio levels by touching the audio meters. Everything is interactive, so if you tap any item you can instantaneously change its settings without having to search through confusing menus.

The BMD Pocket 4K Camera recommended compatibility CFast and SD Cards for RAW and ProRes CFast 2.0, SD UHS-II and Ext USB-C Drive and DS UHS-II Frame Rate.
