Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

Blackmagic has officially announced a new successor to their original Pocket cinema camera (BMPCC), Introducing the new Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4K (BMPCC 4K) - with upgraded features and a more usable body design , the camera aims to address all the shortcomings of the first generation product and bring something new to the table .

The BMPCC 4K , as the name suggests , shoots 4K Cinema RAW  in either UHD or DCI (Cinema 4K) at 60fps and it can also shoot HD 1080 at 120fps . The camera's MFT (Micro 4/3) sensor (Which is now a full size MFT sensor -unlike the previous model which was cropped to Super16) also features a native  ISO  of 25600 ,and it has 13 stops of dynamic range and there is support for HDR .

The body of the camera is somewhat inspired by the URSA line, although its no longer "pocketable" the camera is still small enough for gimbals and rigs. The 90's style body (which is made out of CFRP) features a large 5" 1080p resolution touchscreen display , a CF card and a UHS II SD card for recording media to , and a full size HDMI port for external peripherals.The camera also has USB C video out (USB C powered media recorders) .

Pricing for the camera is said to be $1295 and this includes a free full version of Davinci Resolve Studio which is usually sold for $299 , the camera , as it has a MFT mount , will easily work with any Panasonic or Olympus MFT lens and many others as well. The camera supports  Canon LP-E6 - making the camera quite adaptable. The system is expected to ship in September 2018.
