Launch Announcement - PBC Pocket Remote For Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras

Recommended Posts

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

And through the 6 day countdown window today we have this.

The PBC has two buttons but with their three operation modes (single click, double click, long click) you can assign up to 6 different controls to them so you can have aperture up and down on single click, record start/stop on a long click etc.

Or not.

Its up to you so you can just use it as a simple record start/stop controller if thats all you need.

The status screen also takes care of syncing settings that you have made on the camera as well as on the PBC so, again, there is no restriction on how you use it so if you want to just use it as a pseudo top plate display then thats fine.

And talking of status monitoring, the PBC features a very unsubtle tally indicator method so you will be left in no doubt whatsoever if the camera is in record mode ;)

Another window opening event tomorrow.

Can we swop Advent calendars please? I got a steam train this morning.

Well I did have a couple of early prototypes that left a lot of white smoke in their wake so its not too different.

And through window 5 we have the Tilta Nucleus Nano integration to give you wireless focus control without gears, motors and additional power.

They work in tandem so you can now have full aperture and focus control from a gimbal.

More tomorrow.

T minus 4 and we welcome our upcoming PXP expander module to the party.

The PXP wirelessly connects to the PBC to give you five more hardware switches to assign controls to and a focus control wheel for your native and adapted lenses.

As they are wirelessly linked, you can use them separately so the PBC on top of the camera as a status monitor and the PXP on a tripod/rig handle or combine both units into a single comprehensive hand controller.

As well as acting as a hub for the Tilta Nucleus Nano wheel and the PXP, the PBC will also be the central hub for our other upcoming control modules such as the Auto Focus system.

More tomorrow.

72 hours to go...

When you are using either the Nucleus Nano wheel or our now PXP expander to pull focus using the PBC, you can store A and B focus points and then activate the focus Limit function to enable you to pull focus between the two points at your own rate without worrying about overshooting.

Works for both native and adapted EF lenses as in this example using a Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 on a Metabones adapter.

More tomorrow.

There is a First Wave package that adds up to a 33% discount.

I'll surely add mine, just to let this community know, you won't find anything else like that... : ) I personally invite all Pocket users to not miss this open gate, my hat man (E : -)

Its now launch eve eve and our second to last window reveals a reminder that although the PBC can do a lot of tricks - and is the hub to which other tricks will connect to in the future - it can still be used as just a wireless remote Record Start/Stop switch on a rig if that is all you currently or will ever need.
