For the first time ever I’ve come face to face with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has come face to face with me. It’s time to face facts without doing an about-face.
I am certainly not bigger than a camera company, or more important than Blackmagic and I think people may have seen the hysterics as a bit silly. I apologise for that and will be covering the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K on EOSHD. I accept that yes, possibly I have shot myself in the foot, having said that, EOSHD is bigger than one person too and a real community. That’s worth defending.
John Brawley’s arrogant display on the EOSHD Forum means I will spend my money elsewhere.
Blackmagic have released the first files straight off the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, for grading and evaluation.
How does the image stack up?
Revealed at NAB 2018, the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is here. It’s much better than anyone expected. It appears to use a similar Micro Four Thirds sensor to the Panasonic GH5S and record 4K RAW internally to CFast 2.0 or UHS-II SD card. On top of that it sports an absolutely huge 5″ 1080p touchscreen, ProRes recording, Dual Native ISO, 13 stop HDR, 120fps slow-mo, USB C, Mini XLR and even 3D LUT support in-camera.
