Blackmagic has just released an updated version to its pocket-sized cinema camera. This new model switches away from the micro 4/3 mount and opts for the highly-demanded EF lens mount. While keeping many specs the same, like the 25,600 ISO, 13 stops of dynamic range, 5” inch screen, and internal 3D LUTS, the new EF mount version does see a larger Super 35 sensor — amounting to 6K resolution and a more shallow depth of field.
Much of the form of the camera is virtually the same minus a larger opening to accommodate the bigger optics. 6K branding also makes its way onto the front of the camera, with a few added menus that go along with the high-resolution options. Priced at $2,495 USD (up from $1,295 USD for the MFT), the Blackmagic 6K Pocket Cinema Camera is now on sale at Blackmagic Design.
