BlackMagic have decided to release the details of the 6K version of their Pocket Cinema Camera.

I would wonder if all those who are still on the waiting list for a 4K Version to arrive will they be changing their orders.

There are some very nice tech advancements…

KEY FEATURES

  • Active Canon EF Mount
  • Super 35-Sized HDR Sensor
  • Record 6K 6144 x 3456 up to 50 fps
  • Dual Native 400 & 3200 ISO to 25,600

However I question this one and it’s target market. I would assume the quality is superb but with a tag of over $2500 (Irish price would be more I would say), this camera now falls into a very saturated price category.

Depending on the user and their requirements for filming, is there a need from clients for 6K (at this time)? Does the client have 6K playback to maximize the viewing experience of the package?

Also with other 4K cameras, including the previous pocket cam (pictured above next to the 6k) would this be the better buy? I do however like the idea of all the EF glass now compatible with the BlackMagic pocket though, (long over due).

Here is a breakdown from Newsshooter.com which gives all the details

If you get a chance and are in the Dublin area then get to the BVPS 2019 at the Aviva Stadium.

Some great kit on display with some fantastic deals only available at the event on the two days.

So with NAB happening this week, Blackmagic are due to announce the new version of their flagship software, DaVinci Resolve 16.

Blackmagic Design has published a new banner on their website promoting DaVinci Resolve 16 with the tag line ‘The revolution in editing starts at 9AM PDT on April 8th 2019.’ DaVinci Resolve 15 was first released in 2018 which integrated Fusion compositing right into the app. It is currently at version 15.3.

It will be interesting in what BM is going to give editors and colourists in this version but the banner above is an interesting choice. Eagle eyed film editors have noted that a number of the film posters dictated were actually cut using Avid Media Composer. One hopes that BM are using the posters to signify what their software will be capable of and not a false adverting mistake.

Either way, as a certified DaVinci Resolve Editor and lectuer I do like the workflow process this software creates and I hope to convince others at the Life Long Learning Festival of DaVinci’s capabilities on Tuesday Morning at LIT. Click on Picture below for more details.
