PBC Pocket Controller for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

PBC Pocket Bluetooth Controller for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

Soon CDA-TEK will be taking pre-orders for their Pocket Cinema Camera 4K bluetooth pocket controller. It acts as a wireless interface “hub” as well, not just a way to quickly access camera settings without diving into any menus. The hub allows wireless follow focus control of most lenses on the camera, when paired with a Tilta Nucleus, for example.

Pocket Bluetooth Controller pre-orders will begin in a crowd-funding campaign on 12th December 2019.

CDA-TEK also continue to work on their time of flight module, which I saw working a few months ago. The Pocket Bluetooth Controller acts as a hub for that to connect to the camera as well.

You can read-up on the ToF module at EOSHD here

In future the idea is that the PBC is expandable, with modules and control interfaces plugging into the USB C port (as shown on the prototypes below!)

I’ll be bringing you a hands-on with the latest version of the Pocket Bluetooth Controller when I get to have a play with it in Manchester on the 12th December.

In the mean-time, feel free to ask CDA-TEK (BTM_PIX on the EOSHD Forum) any questions in the official forum thread below:
