Dual Gain ISOfor Exceptional Low Light Performance
In digital film ISO is a measurement of the image sensor’s sensitivity to light. This means the higher the ISO number the more sensitivity to light so it’s possible to shoot using natural light even at night! The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera features dual gain ISO up to 25,600, which means both the 4K and 6K models are optimized to minimize grain or noise in images, while maintaining the full dynamic range of the sensor.

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera records using standard open file formats so you don’t have to waste time transcoding media. Files are compatible with all post production software so you can work with the software of your choice, or use the included DaVinci Resolve Studio. Recording works in industry standard 10‑bit Apple ProRes files in all formats up to 4K or 12‑bit Blackmagic RAW in all formats up to 6K. BlackmagicRAW is the fastest growing RAW format and developers can download and use the free Blackmagic RAW SDK to add support into their applications. Best of all media files workon all operating systems plus you can format media cardsand disks in HFS+ for Mac and ExFAT for Windows.
Blackmagic RawThe Quality of RAWand the Speed of Video!
Blackmagic RAW is a revolutionary new format designed to capture and preserve the qualityof the sensor data from your camera. Video formats such as H.264 are highly compressed, plus add noise and artifacts, causing original sensor detail to be lost forever. Blackmagic RAW eliminates this problem and gives you stunning images with incredibledetail and color throughout the production pipeline from camerato edit, color and mastering. It also saves camera settings as metadata so you can set ISO, white balance and exposure in camera or override them later while editing, all without any loss of quality! Only Blackmagic RAW gives youthe highest quality, smallest files and fastest performance!
Setting the color temperature tellsthe camera how to interpret whiteand other colors in an image. Insteadof saving images with color values baked in, Blackmagic RAW makesit possible for you to change the temperature in post productionwith DaVinci Resolve Studio.
Adjusting contrast, or the tonal range of an image, can make different partsof the image stand out. While you should always try to get the best shot on set, Blackmagic RAW givesyou the flexibility to adjust contrast withoutany loss of quality while you’re editing and color correcting.
Changing the ISO adjusts the camera’s sensitivity to light. Properly exposed shots require the right combinationof ISO, aperture and shutter speed. Depending on the lightsand exposure settings, you may need toadjust ISO in post.
Adjusting tint is another way you can affectthe overall color balance of an image. Unlike saturation or midpoint which can make reds redder or yellows more yellow, adjusting tint actuallylets you push the colors in different directions.
Saturation is the strength or purityof a color. More saturated colors are pure and less saturated colors have a percentage of grayin proportionto their hue. Adjusting saturation in Blackmagic RAW images can help makethe colors visually pop or become muted.
In order for your images to look good,you need to make sure that it’s nottoo bright (overexposed) or too dark (underexposed). With Blackmagic RAW, the exposure settings can be changed in post so you can saveshots that were not properly exposed!
Large 5" Touchscreen for Fast and Accurate Focus
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera features a large, bright 5 inch touchscreen that makes it easy for youto frame shotsand accurately focus. That means you don’thave to carry around an external monitor or viewfinder.It’s like getting a built in Blackmagic Video Assist with your camera!The touchscreen displays critical information while you’re shooting, menus for setting up the camera andintuitive touch to focus controls. On screen overlays show status, a histogram, focus and peaking indicators, levels, frame guides, playback controls and more. You can quickly apply 3D LUTs for monitoring shots with the desired color and look,or you can choose to bake it into the recorded footage.
The Advanced OS with Features from URSA Mini Pro!
With the advanced Blackmagic OS, you get an intuitive and user friendly camera operating system based on the latest technology. Blackmagic OS is a true modern operating system where all camera features run independently for smoother control, plus the camera powers on virtually instantly.

Generation 4Color Science
Stunning Skin Tones and Faithful Color Reproduction
Featuring the same Generation 4 Color Science as the highend URSA Mini Pro G2, the Pocket Cinema Camera delivers stunning, accurate skin tones and faithful color in every shot. Blackmagic Generation 4 Color Science uses a complexdynamic 12‑bit gamma curve designed to capture more color data in the highlights and shadows, so you get better looking images. The color science also handles some of the complex Blackmagic RAW image processing, so color and dynamic range data from the sensor is preserved via metadata which you can use in post production. That means you get images that have a natural,film like response to color adjustments in post with DaVinci Resolve Studio.

Load Custom 3D LUTs to Recreate Film Looks!
Digital film cameras shoot logarithmic colorspace to preserve the dynamic range, which is great for later post production, however when these files are viewed on a monitor they can look flat and washed out. 3D LUTs solve this problem because they allow you to apply a "look" to the monitor so you get an idea of how the finished images will look when editing. LUTs can be applied temporarily for monitoring only, or theycan be recorded into the Blackmagic RAW files for use in post production. The Pocket Cinema Camera works with industry standard 17 and 33 point 3D LUT files, or you can work withthe built in LUTs such as Extended Video, Film to Video, Film to Rec.2020 and more.
