But of course, as mentioned earlier, the new camera is not without its list of hard hitting internals (and externals). On that regard, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro obviously falls behind the brand’s video production line models such as the Ursa Mini Pro 12K and is instead a successor to the 2018 Pocket Cinema 4K and the 2019 non-Pro Pocket Cinema 6K. After all, the Pocket series is aimed towards mobility, which explains their DSLR or mirrorless camera form factor – rivalling those such as the Sony A7S III and the Canon EOS R.
Just in case the hint wasn’t obvious enough, the new device is capable of recording footage up to 6K resolution at 16:9 aspect ratio, 6144 x 3456 pixels and 50fps, thanks to the same Super 35 23.10mm x 12.99mm sensor that is also featured on the non-Pro variant. For higher frame rates but in lower resolution, it can record 60 fps videos at 6144 X 2560 (2.4:1) and 5744 X 3024 (17:9), 120 fps at cropped 2868 X 1512 (17:9), and finally 60 fps at 3728 X 3104 (6:5) in true anamorphic mode. Photography-wise, the camera is capable of snapping images at 21.2MP in fully uncompressed DNG format.
