BMPCC 4K Update – New frame rate options

Pocket Cinema Camera 4K In hand

Blackmagic Design has just released Blackmagic Camera Setup 6.6 which includes a number of new updates for the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K & 6K models.

The BMPCC 4K has received the majority of the updates, adding new frame rates as well as anamorphic recording support up at 2.8K up to 80fps.

You can now record 4K 2.4:1 4096 x 1712 in Blackmagic RAW up to 75 fps,

Together with the anamorphic recording support, the camera now also supports 1.33x and 2x de-squeeze in-camera to preview the image.

Another nice update is the ability to monitor the voltage level when powering via a 12V DC connector, something which we have brought up in our reviews of the 4K & 6K models.
