Blackmagic Design has announced a new lower price for the popular Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K of US $1,995. This is a reduction of $500 which will make this camera more affordable for users working on digital film as well as live production with the new ATEM Mini switchers. Made from lightweight carbon fiber polycarbonate composite, the camera features a multifunction handgrip with all controls for recording, ISO, WB and shutter angle.
Video and control is via the HDMI connection, which is available as soon as customers plug the cameras in. The record light becomes a tally light so customers can see which camera is on air. The ATEM Software Control camera page has a camera control unit (CCU) style interface for adjusting and matching their cameras; It’s the same as a broadcast CCU. There are also controls for color tint to balance camera as well as focus, gain and shutter speed. Customers can even ISO record Blackmagic RAW in the camera for editing later.
