Sony has declined to launch a new cinema camera next week, it seems that Sony Design is sneaking in a new product ahead of Sony’s announcement with its new Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro.
Starting at $ 2,500, the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro costs $ 500 more than the previous model, and in exchange for that extra cash, the major upgrade on the BMPCC 6K Pro is a new HDR rear display that now tilts outward (Instead of being locked) place) and topped at an impressive 1500 nits of brightness.
Apart from the new display, the BMPCC 6K Pro also comes with a new built-in IR ND filter, which helps users to better control the exposure of their footage, as well as camera 2, 4, or 6 stop lights Is able to block. And to help ensure that the camera does not run out of juice, the BMPCC 6K Pro now supports the larger NP-570 battery, as well as Blackmagic has also built an optional $ 145 Battery Pro Grip that offers one and two The NP-F570 can hold, distribute, and hold batteries. 3 hours of recording time.
And while it is not part of the stock configuration of the BMPCC 6K Pro, Blackmagic also produced a $ 500 optional 3.68 million dot OLED EVF that can bend up to 70 degrees.
Elsewhere, the BMPCC 6K Pro is the same as the previous model, with the camera’s dual-native ISO 6K sensor (6144 x 3456) still offering 13 stops of dynamic range, 25,600 maximum ISO, and 6K / 60 fps video. Recording (or 120 FPS at 2K). Port selection also remains unchanged, including the USB-C in the BMPCC 6K Pro, a full-size HDMI port, dual Mini XLR port, and separate headphones and mic jack.
The only real problem for Blackmagic is that next week, Sony hopes to make its debut on a portable cinema camera in the FX3, rumored to support native 8K video capture. However, with the FX3 still priced at TBA, eventually choosing between the BMPCC 6K Pro and the Sony FX3 will likely result in reduced pricing and how those invested in a specific ecosystem.
Sony’s camera division has been on a warp with the recently announced Alpha 1 acting as a direct response to Canon’s EOS R5. But now information has been leaked about a new Sony Cinema Cam which could pose a serious threat to both Canon and Black Magic.
Based on a tweet by respected leaker Nokishita, the new Sony FX3 has some interesting things going on. That’s because even though it carries FX tags such as Sony’s high-end cinema cams, it also sports the Alpha branding from Sony’s consumer mirrorless camera segment, which suggests that the Sony FX3 is considered more professional and more advanced. Home users can offer as an option for both.
And while no detailed specs are available for FX3 yet, Mirrorless Rumors.com claims that people are speculating that FX3 supports video capture at 8K, UHD 8K, DCI 4K, and high-rate video capture at UHD 4K. Can. If true, it would land the sweet spot for a lot of experienced content creators looking for a powerful but still relatively portable dedicated video cam.
Additionally, a position that looks like an AF joystick on the top of the camera (in the rear where it usually is), suggests that the FX3 may have a larger built-in screen for better monitor footage, similar to what you’d get. What is found on black magic pocket cinema cam? Elsewhere, the inclusion of multiple mounting threads makes it easy to slip the FX3 into a cage, giving users additional flexibility to deal with additional components and accessories.
Either way, the bigger picture is that with the FX3, it seems that Sony is specifically targeting video cameras like Canon’s EOS C70 and dedicated photographers in the category of Black Magic, because it is a mirrorless camera. The market share is likely to be even more rounded.
Unfortunately, there is no word on pricing yet, but current rumors say that Sony is expected to officially announce the FX3 ahead of the CP3 show, which is scheduled to begin on February 24.
