Shoot in Super 16 using the same 13 stop dynamic range as the Blackmagic Cinema Camera at a fraction of the size. The Super 16mm-sized 1080HD sensor produces amazing footage that can be viewed on the 3.5” LCD display or on an external monitor via the included micro HDMI port. The high resolution screen zooms in to 1:1 size for accurate focusing. The Micro Four Thirds lens mount allows for a variety of lens choices and is PL mount-compatible using an adapter.

This diminutive version of the Blackmagic accepts SD cards with the built-in recorder that captures ProRes 422 (HQ) and lossless compressed RAW CinemaDNG files when using fast SDXC cards. When using ProRes, you can record for more than 50 minutes on a 64GB SD card at 24 frames per second. The 10-bit ProRes 422 (HQ) files are above broadcast standards. Unlike the built-in battery of the original Blackmagic, this pocket version has a removable battery for handy recharging and swapping for already-charger batteries. An added bonus for this camera is its 1/4"-20 UNC-threaded mounting point on the top and bottom of its body, which allows for convenient support configurations.

• This camera has a crop factor of 2.88. This means that for any lens, no matter what brand or mount, you will need to multiply the focal length by 2.88 (i.e: a 50mm lens on this camera will look like a 144mm lens would on a full frame camera) For more information consult our crop factor chart.

• A BMCC rental will not include the dongle that enables the full version of DaVinci Resolve. DaVinci Resolve Lite can be downloaded for free here.

• Camera does not have a hotshoe mount, nor does it include any kind of hot shoe adapter. If you intend to use any shoe mountable accessories, you will need to provide your own adapter.

• The battery life this camera offers not great (less than one hour of power). Also, be aware that the Pocket camera will often cease accepting battery power from specific batteries. We include (1) standard battery, but you will want to rent a couple spares to ensure your shoot does not suffer interruptions.
