Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K is a new high end digital film camera with a full frame 6K sensor with OLPF, 13 stops of dynamic range and dual native ISO up to 25,600 for incredible low light performance and recording to CFexpress cards. It also uses an L-Mount for lenses which works with a wide range of new and vintage lenses for a wider range of creative choices.
Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K also features a massive 24 x 36mm 6K sensor, allowing for large format cinema camera image quality in a portable, lightweight body. Also, when customers are doing cloud and mobile work, the camera records both deep bit depth Blackmagic RAW and H.264 proxies at the same time. No other camera includes this level of technology, image quality and portability.
The new camera is an extremely high end digital film camera that produces precise skin tones and rich organic colors. It features a massive full frame sensor with a native resolution of 6048 x 4032, which is almost three times larger than a Super 35 sensor and allows customers to shoot with a shallow depth of field or to use anamorphic lenses uncropped for a true cinematic look. Whether users are shooting in bright sunlight or in almost no light at all, the 13 stops of dynamic range with dual native ISO up to 25,600 provide stunning low noise images in all lighting conditions. Plus customers can shoot up to 36 fps at full sensor resolution or 120 fps windowed.
