BMPCC 6K First Footage & Downloadable Clips

If you want to see what footage from the BMPCC 6K looks like you can download a bunch of material directly from Blackmagic. Blackmagic has made the original files available so you can color grade them yourself.

I have uploaded one of the clips in full 6K resolution, but it may take a while before it is available to watch in 6K.

There are a series of 9 clips showcasing different shooting scenarios where the Pocket 6K was used. You need to click on the link to view the videos. You can also download material from 6 of these clips.

I have left Blackmagic’s descriptions of what the shoots were and what equipment was used.

Documentary

Screen Shot 2019 08 10 at 6 34 46 PM

When shooting a nature documentary, you want the smallest possible rig so you can be unobtrusive and out of sight. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K is ideal because everything you need is built right in. In addition to its high dynamic range sensor, you also get 4 shock resistant microphones, dual media recorders, and a large touchscreen display with focus assist, peaking indicators and more. It’s like having a video assist built in! That means everything is self-contained and easy to carry so you don’t have to carry around extra monitors, microphones, recorders or other gear. In addition to shooting 6K at 60 fps, you can also record 2.8K images at 120fps for capturing nature in stunning slow motion.

Indie Film

Screen Shot 2019 08 10 at 8 58 39 PM

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera lets you get the same high end image quality of a Hollywood feature film on any budget! In this example, the 6K model was used with EF mount and Atlas Orion 35, 65, and 80mm cinematic lenses. Blackmagic RAW was used so that the original camera image quality could be maintained throughout post with DaVinci Resolve. On set, 128 GB Hagiwara and 256GB SanDisk CFast cards were used so it was quick and easy to backup footage between shots. A small rig was used including a Blackmagic Video Assist 4K, which made it easier for the rest of the crew to follow along, check focus and see framing. The DOP also added SmallRig rails, a Bright Tangerine Revolvr follow focus and a tripod. Whether you’re shooting a drama, romantic comedy, or an action packed thriller, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is perfect for indie films!

Sports

Blackmagic says that you can capture sports such as mountain biking at up to 60 frames per second in 4K or 6K. You can even shoot windowed 2.8K resolution video at up to 120 frames per second. In this example, multiple cameras were positioned around the bike trail to capture the race from different angles and to keep up with the action.

Action camera

Screen Shot 2019 08 10 at 6 41 43 PM

According to Blackmagic, being light weight and compact in size makes the BMPCC 6K a great action cameras. You get full Blackmagic RAW image quality built into a camera that you can easily carry on a gimbal, strap to a motor bike, wear on your body, or even put in a crash vehicle. You can even control the camera remotely via Bluetooth to start and stop recording as needed and to change settings which means you can shoot in dangerous situations without having to be too close. If you’re shooting yourself, the front mounted record button and tally light makes it super easy to confirm that the camera is on and recording.

Weddings

Screen Shot 2019 08 10 at 6 50 44 PM

Everybody wants a beautiful wedding video, but nobody wants a large crew with a massive camera. In this example, the videographer took advantage of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera’s 6K Super 35 image sensor, Canon EF lenses, and dual native ISO to record with shallow depth of field. This allowed him to create a gorgeous soft bokeh background effect for tender, romantic images that the couple will cherish for years to come. Dual native ISO also let him shoot indoors and outdoors without having to worry about lights. Shooting using Blackmagic RAW 8:1 and 12:1 created images far better than DSLR video in extremely small files. Since weddings are often long events, a high capacity USB‑C SSD and a Blackmagic Pocket Battery Grip were added so that the shoot could continue for hours on end uninterrupted.
