4K Digital Film Sensor
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 color 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.
MFT Lens Mount
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K uses the same MFT (Micro Four Thirds) lens mount as the original Pocket Cinema Camera. 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.
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. The files will work with all professional post production software and 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, and 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.

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.
Super Large Touchscreen
The back of the camera 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 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.

You get support for advanced features such as HDR output and a clean 10-bit output with on screen overlays showing full camera status, making it perfect for on set monitoring. There’s also a mini XLR connection with 48 volts of phantom power for attaching professional microphones, a 3.5 mm video camera style microphone input and a professional locking DC power connector.
Flexible Power Options
It 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. Plus, it includes international socket adapters.
