The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is a predecessor to the BMPCC 6K and provides DCI 4K image capture in RAW and ProRes 422 to CFast 2.0, SD, and external USB-C drives. Key features include:

Updated M4/3 DCI 4K Sensor. Blackmagic has made some much needed improvements to the second iteration of the Pocket Cam, and it all starts with a larger, higher-resolution sensor. It offers DCI 4K capture up to 60p in 12-bit Blackmagic RAW and a number of 10-bit ProRes 422 options. Frame rates can be extended to 120 FPS when shooting in cropped 1080p.

Dual ISO Sensitivity. Low-light sensitivity is improved over the first Pocket Cinema Camera by an increase in the sensor size and a new dual ISO feature. It allows users to modify the camera’s native ISO to reduce noise at higher sensitivities. The BMPCC 4K ISO range extends up to ISO 25,600.

Micro 4/3 Lens Compatibility. The camera has an active micro four-thirds lens mount for compatibility with a wide range of lenses from manufacturers like Panasonic and Olympus. Use existing adapters to allow the use of EF lenses, PL lenses, C-mount lenses, and more.

High Battery and Media Demands. To allow the capture of 4K/60 RAW files, the BMPCC 4K takes CFast 2.0 and SD UHS-II, and you’ll only get about 7 minutes per 256GB at that format. External USB-C drives can also be used for longer record times with a lower cost per gigabyte. Power is provided by common Canon LP-E6 or LP-E6n batteries, but be warned, this camera will eat through a fully charged battery in approximately one hour. Please plan your power and memory needs accordingly.

Other Features. The camera has a big 5" touchscreen monitor on the back, but video can be monitored externally via the full-size HDMI port. It provides high quality audio input and 48V phantom power to microphones via its mini XLR input. Use of professional microphones will require an XLR female to mini XLR adapter cable, which is not included with this purchase.

Are we out of stock?

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
