  • High quality Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) and lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW recording
  • Small Size, Big Image:
  • Due to their weight and size, large format digital film cameras are only suitable for use with tripods and other camera support equipment
  • Until now you've never been able to carry a digital film camera with you wherever you go
  • The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera packs the features and technology of a digital film camera into a truly pocket size design, so you can now shoot film quality images in places and situations that were previously impossible
  • Ultra Portable Design:
  • Every feature of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera emphasizes its portability
  • With a surface area smaller than many smartphones and weight of only 12.5 ounces, it's designed to fit in your pocket and your hand
  • The built in SD card recorder and removable lithium ion rechargeable battery make it easy to swap your media and power for continuous shooting in remote locations
  • Plus you can set focus and review your shots using the large LCD screen, without the need for a separate viewfinder or monitor
  • Lightweight and Rugged: Features tough cast magnesium chassis:
  • The magnesium alloy chassis is both incredibly light and extremely strong, so you get protection of the camera's internal electronics in a unit that can be handheld for long periods of time
  • The design features a grip that adds comfort and stability when shooting handheld
  • 1/4" thread mounting points are located on the top and bottom of the camera for when you want to mount the camera on a tripod or in a rig, or attach an external microphone or other accessory

  • Removable Battery:
  • The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera includes a removable and rechargeable lithium ion battery, which provides up to an hour of continuous recording time
  • The Nikon EN-EL20 battery type is commonly available, so you can purchase multiple batteries if you need to shoot for longer periods. The battery charge time is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes with the camera off
  • With a wide 12-20V power input range the camera can easily be powered and charged from larger professional camera batteries and other power sources
  • 13 Stops of Dynamic Range: The dynamic range for a traditional film look:
  • What makes film look like film? Frame rate, depth of field, noise and other factors are all part of the answer, however all cinematographers agree that Dynamic Range is the major reason
  • Video cameras are not able to handle light in the same way as film and their narrower dynamic range causes highlights to 'blow out' and shadows to appear 'crushed'
  • The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera's image sensor captures 13 stops of wide dynamic range, so you retain much more detail and get images that emulate film
  • Built in SD Card Recording: Record standard ProRes and RAW files to SD cards:
  • The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera features a built in SD card recorder
  • With the amazingly fast read/write capabilities of SDXC and SDHC cards you can record digital film quality images to a memory card that's smaller than a postage stamp
  • The camera creates 12-bit lossless compressed CinemaDNG and 10-bit ProRes 422 (HQ) files that are way beyond broadcast standards When using ProRes you can record for more than 50 minutes on a 64GB SD card at 24 frames per second and swapping cards takes just seconds
  • Use Professional MFT Lenses:
  • The shorter flange focal distance of the Micro Four Thirds camera system helps to keep the Blackmagic Pocket CInema Camera so small, but more importantly this technology also unlocks the use of a huge variety of lenses, especially when combined with the camera?s Super 16 sensor size
  • In addition to using native MFT lenses it's easy to adapt other lens mounts to MFT using third party adapters
  • The active MFT mount is powered so is capable of providing electronic control of focus and iris
  • Film and Video Gamma: Select film log or video linear gamma:
  • The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera creates lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW files and ProRes 422 (HQ) files

  • HDMI Output: For great on set monitoring:
  • You can connect the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera to a huge range of equipment such as electronic viewfinders, monitors and disk recorders, using the camera's built in HDMI output
  • The Micro HDMI output uses a small Type D connector and cables with Type D to full size Type A connectors are commonly available at low cost
  • The camera's HDMI output includes an overlay setting with frame guides, f-stop, frame rate and more
  • The overlay can easily be disabled for a clean video output
  • LANC Remote Control: Full control of your camera:
  • The LANC control protocol allows the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera to be controlled remotely by a wired controller
  • Connection to the camera is via a 2.5mm jack and the controller allows the camera's record, stop, focus and iris settings to be remotely controlled
