Blackmagic declares Pocket Cinema Camera 6K. Blackmagic Design has revealed its latest compact cinematographic camera, the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K. It looks pretty similar to last year’s 4 K camera, which means it looks like a Minolta SLR from 1993, but it has a bigger sensor — it shoots in Super 35 format (similar to APS-C) with a resolution of 6144 x 3456.

Aside from resolution, the change to Super 35 will enable much better low-light performance and field depth control. The 6 K camera also utilizes Canon’s EF lens mount as opposed to the 4 K’s Micro Four Thirds, and Blackmagic claims 13 dynamic range stops with 400 and 25,600 dual indigenous ISO.
The Pocket Cinema Camera 6 K has plenty of connectivity: mini XLR, full-size HDMI, USB-C, DC power, microphone input, and headphone output. The camera is operated mainly on the same5-inch touchscreen as the 4 K model. With 6144x 3456 16:9, 60 fps with 6144x 2560 2.4:1, or 120 fps with 2.8 K 2868x 1512 17:9, it can shoot up to 50 fps.
