Pack and take anywhere
If you want to make a documentary in a remote location then one of the major challenges is taking heavy equipment with you. Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera's compact size means you’re agile enough to follow the story wherever it may take you! The camera’s lightweight design fits into your pocket, backpack or bag, and because the camera records to small SD cards and uses a removable battery it’s easy to carry spares so you can keep shooting over long time periods!
Tell your story in digital film
Passionate independent film makers can now shoot digital film quality and get the beauty that comes from wide dynamic range and color correction, so their productions truly look like film and not video. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera’s MFT lens mount and Super 16 size sensor lets you swap between different lenses for different shots and styles. You can even use incredible distinctive looking Super 16 cine lenses with commonly available adapters to fit the MFT mount. The camera can be used with professional rigs when follow focus, matte box and other accessories are required.
Capture historical events
Bigger cameras can create barriers for journalists, whereas the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is perfect when you’re fighting your way through a crowd to find the perfect angle to shoot from, sometimes without being noticed! Use the camera in Video mode to record in Rec709 color space that’s standard for HDTV, and because files use ProRes 422 HQ and are saved to SD card, you can move the card to a laptop and access your media within seconds!
Tough camera for tough work!
Crash cams are often used in feature film and television drama production, where cameras are used to film stunts and special effects. These cameras are often mounted in hazardous positions in order to film close up dramatic shots, however this knowingly can cause the camera to be damaged. Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera’s affordable price, size and image quality make it perfect for use as a crash cam.
Small space shooting
Mount in tight spaces
There are lots of shooting scenarios where you need to position a camera in a small space, whether that’s due to physical lack of space or a desire to keep the camera small and perhaps hidden completely. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera has a 12.5 ounce design with a smaller surface area than many new smartphones, as well as a 2.5mm jack connection for LANC remote control. This is great in situations where you are able to position a camera but not someone to operate it!
Shoot your family in digital film
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is a fantastic camera for personal use, especially when you want to achieve quality beyond the level of traditional video camcorders. Film a family wedding, a child’s first steps or a holiday travelogue. If you’re a keen photographer interested in cinematography you may already own MFT lenses or have other lenses that can be adapted to the camera. Operating the camera is simple and within minutes of opening the box you’ll be filming your first projects!
Teach the true art of film!
Students learning the craft of filmmaking can now get to use a digital film camera rather than only learning the theory behind the art. Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera’s ProRes 422 HQ and lossless compressed CinemaDNG files can be used with DaVinci Resolve, so you can learn how to apply different color correction techniques to create different styles and looks. DaVinci Resolve is free to download, so every student can have their own copy of the software in the classroom and at home!
