We Put the BMPCC6K Through Its Paces. Here’s How We Think It Did

BMPCC6K’s Super 35mm sensor provides greater dynamic range and cinematic look.

So I’ve had the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K for a few days to test out and I have to admit, it’s been really fun to shoot with. Why? Because it’s so damn easy to jump in with both feet. If you’re a BMPCC4K user, you will definitely be able to hit the ground running. But beware, like it’s 4K cousin, you’re going to want to have more than one battery on a shoot, or it’s going to be a very short day.

It’s important to know that this camera shares about 75% of the same components with the 4K model. Factor out the BMPCC 6K’s larger Super 35mm image sensor and the larger form factor (including a protruding nose housing for the full-frame EF mount), and it’s essentially the same camera. So, since we’ve already reviewed the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K here, we recommend spending some time with that review for comparison and contrast.

And, before I get into my first impressions of Blackmagic’s 6K Pocket Model, take a look at some BMPCC6K footage we shot out at Burning Man during a field test.
