If you’re familiar with the world of film and cinema, the name Black Magic might just ring a bell. As one of the premier cinematographic proprietors, the world over, the company has established a cult-like following, thanks to its elaborate camera systems, innovative interfaces, and approach toward filmmaking. Now, to bring even greater value to the community, the company has announced the release of the Pocket Cinema 6K — an affordable but powerful alternative to the industry’s mid-range cinema offerings.
The Black Magic Design Pocket Cinema 6K camera isn’t much different from the company’s popularized 4K variant; however, it introduces a few major upgrades that are sure to make it a plausible addition to the kit of aspiring filmmakers. As expected, the platform boasts an upgraded 6144 x 3456 resolution, thanks to its newly-implemented Super 35 HDR image sensor. It also features the brand’s coveted carbon fiber polycarbonate composite constitution, making it one of the lightest, most compact variants available. Like its counterpart, it features Blackmagic RAW support, giving shooters a malleable format for post-production, SD, UHS-II, and CFast capabilities, for trustworthy storage, and HDMI/XLR compatibility for external monitor implementation. At 21.2 megapixels, this compact powerhouse is hard to beat — especially with its attractive price point of $2,495.
