Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera

Available Today

Please Note: Recording in RAW format requires Sandisk Extreme Pro SD memory cards.

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC) is an ultra compact camcorder with a Super 16mm sensor (x3.02 Crop). The BMPCC has the ability to capture full HD footage in either CinemaDNG RAW, or Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), with an impressive 13 stops of dynamic range.

  • Active Micro 4/3 Lens Mount. The BMPCC’s active micro 4/3 lens mount enables electronic control of aperture and the ability to manual focus using a variety of Micro 4/3 lenses (supported lens list not currently available). Furthermore, through the use of MFT adapters, an even wider selection of lenses are available.
  • The Crop Factor. The crop factor of the camera is x3.02, so there will be very few wide angle lens options. Moreover, the use of third party adapters may affect infinity focus.
  • Record with SD Cards. Use fast SDXC cards full HD with 13 stops of dynamic range.
  • CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes. The BMPCC a records a choice of high quality ProRes 422 (HQ) and lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW files. The free download of DaVinci Resolve Lite will enables users to color correct the CinemaDNG RAW files, and export them at their full 1920×1080 resolution.

Please Note:

  • The battery life with this camera is less than stellar. We include (1) Nikon EN-EL20 battery, but you may want to rent a couple spares if you’ll be shooting out in the field.
  • SDHC / XC memory cards must be formatted in either HFS+ or exFAT before use! For a step-by-step, see page 14 of the manual.
