That's the new pro version of Blackmagic's pocket 6k cinema camera

Blackmagic Design, the well-known Australian manufacturer of digital cinema devices, known for its Blackmagic cameras and DaVinci Resolve nonlinear video editing software, with a fairly functional free version, has just released this week the Pro version of its 6K pocket cinema camera worldwide.

This model tries to cover some of the aspects that have been faltering in the original model, allowing creators to have several additional improvements when it comes to doing their outdoor shooting work.

With improvements that mostly facilitate outdoor recording

Thus, unlike the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K released a year and a half ago, the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro has a brighter display, reaching up to 1,500 nits, being also tiltable, which gives it more versatility when it comes to working.

This solves the problem of viewing images in broad daylight, but it is not the only solution they have brought in this version, since this is added the possibility of placing an optional OLED viewfinder, which has its corresponding connector, with its counterpart integrated into the camera body.

Therefore, we are looking at two solutions that also avoid connecting external devices to view the recordings made, allowing to work lighter outdoors compared to the non-Pro version.

Also, with outdoor recordings in mind, this model features various neutral density (ND) filters, which reduce light by two, four, and six steps at times when there is high light clarity.

And it is also noteworthy that this model arrives with a rechargeable battery of greater capacity, giving more recording time, although the company has not offered all the data about it, something that professionals will discover in practice.

Also, this Pro version arrives with an additional mini-XLR connector, coming to the house a total of two mini-XLR connectors. The company further emphasizes that:

This model also includes state-of-the-art 5-color science, Super 35 HDR image sensor with 13 dynamic range, 25,600 dual native ISO, and a popular EF lens mount.

The company's new pocket cinema camera is available through internationally authorized sellers for the price of $2,495, about $500 more than the current price of the non-Pro version.
