The recently launched Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, a handheld digital camera that offers a 6144 x 3456 Super 35-size 6K HDR image sensor, is featured on the Blackmagic Design stand.
With a market likely to include independent films and documentaries, the highlight features include 13 stops of dynamic range, an EF lens mount and dual-native ISO up to 25,600 for low light applications.
The EF lens mount works with a range of lenses from companies such as Canon, Zeiss, Sigma and Schneider. According to Blackmagic, an AF mount is on the roadmap as an update.
The 6K model will shoot up to 50fps at 6144 x 3456 16:9 or 60fps at 6144 x 2560 2.4:1 and 60fps at 5744 x 3024 17:9. Blackmagic reported that for higher frame rates, users could window the sensor and shoot up to 120fps at 2.8K 2868 x 1512 17:9. Additionally, customers could shoot anamorphic 6:5 using anamorphic lenses in 3.7K 60fps at 3728 x 3104.
The camera lists for $2495 and includes a copy of DaVinci Resolve Studio software.
