Though technology keeps getting smaller and less expensive, there are still some big leaps that need to be made before professional-grade equipment can be called “affordable” by average consumers. But, one such leap has just been made thanks to Blackmagic’s new Pocket Cinema Camera 4K.
This palm-sized digital camera packs a wallop in a remarkably small format – offering the ability to capture unbelievably crisp and detailed images with its native 4096×2160 resolution 4/3 sensor, along with 13 stops of dynamic range and dual native ISO up to 25,600. It can also capture RAW or ProRes UHD video at up to 120 frames per second, transferring it directly onto standard SD/UHS-II or CFast 2.0 cards. Finally, it also has a full-sized HDMI port, Bluetooth connectivity, 3D LUT support, a USB-C expansion port, and much more. And the whole thing is housed in an incredibly tough and lightweight carbon fiber polycarbonate case. It can be yours soon for a shockingly low sticker price of $1,295.
