A cinematographer or live broadcast camera operator moves dynamically and discretely with the action in a scene or event. Constantly monitoring and adjusting focus, composition and audio quality throughout, they must simultaneously adapt to changing lighting conditions to ensure consistent, professional quality video footage. For many independent creators, the primary advantages of DSLR camerad for video production are price, familiarity and portability. Designed primarily for stills capture, they are ill-equipped to deal with the practical and technical issues common to filmmaking and live broadcasting without the addition of expensive, bulky peripherals that invariably negate the key benefits the format offers.
The Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro represents an affordable versatile, all-in-one solution equipped specifically for cinematography and broadcasting: - Built-in, motorized ND filters allow spontaneous adaption to changing light conditions. - Four integrated professional microphones provide high fidelity audio recording. - A flexible architecture featuring adjustable OLED viewfinder and high brightness, tilting HDR LCD enables various shooting positions. - Natural ergonomics offer responsive control and setting adjustment. - Lightweight, durable construction and advanced thermal management ensure on-going performance and reliability despite the processing demands of high-frame rate, 6K video. - Proprietary Blackmagic RAW codec generates efficient, lossless video files optimised for quality, speed and storage.
The Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro is a timely response to the needs of filmmakers, networks and independent web creators impacted by social distancing measures associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Costing just $3245 it requires nothing but a lens and storage media to start shooting, offering broadcasters, small businesses and educational institutions a self-contained solution to quickly and affordably establish home studios for remote presenters. The versatile all-in-one functionality and embedded post-production features have also provided a way for cinematographers to continue producing solo content, reducing the reliance on multiple support crew to achieve professional quality content.

This immediacy allows filmmakers to see the effects of adjustments in real-time, ensuring focus remains on the creative aspects of filmmaking. OLED Viewfinder Integrated adjustable viewfinder with HD OLED display and built-in proximity sensor enables precise, outdoor and handheld shooting. Tilting through a 70 degree range, it allows multiple shooting positions, with 4 element glass diopter for accurate focus adjustment.
