Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K & Azden Compact Cine Mic Bundle
Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K & Azden Compact Cine Mic Bundle
Announcing the all Blackmagic Pocket Cinema CameraÂ 4K, a handheld digital film camera with full 4/3 HDR sensor, dual native ISO with up to 25600 ISO for incredible low light performance as well as 13 stops of dynamic range. It also eliminates expensive external recorders, as it features a unique new USB-C Expansion Port, which allows customers to record using the internal SD/UHS-II and CFast recorders or directly to the same external disks they will use for editing and color correction.Â
The revolutionary Blackmagic Pocket Cinema CameraÂ 4K is the handheld digital film camera that customers have been asking for. ItÂ packs incredibly high end imaging and professional features into a portable and affordable design that can be used anywhere. The compact body style isÂ perfect for shooting independent films and documentaries, fashion shows, travel blogs, web videos, weddings, corporate video, sports and muchÂ more.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema CameraÂ 4K features a full size 4/3 HDR sensor with native 4096 x 2160 resolution and 13 stops of dynamic range forÂ true digital film quality. The full size of the 4/3 sensor is designed to perfectly match MFT lenses so the crop factor is greatly reduced, giving customers a wider field of view. It also features dual native ISO with up to 25600 ISO for incredible low lightÂ performance.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema CameraÂ 4K is packed with features such as a MFT lens mount, large 5 inch touchscreen monitor, 10-bit ProRes and 12-bit RAW recording, 3D LUTs, 4 built in microphones, mini XLR audio input with phantom power, Bluetooth wireless camera control, HDMI on set monitoring output and more. The latest Blackmagic Design color science lets customers shoot images that are far better than DSLR cameras and even better than professional digital film cameras costing tens of thousandsÂ more.
Designed using a space age carbon fiber polycarbonate composite, the body of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema CameraÂ 4K is extremely strong and light. The carbon composite material consists of a high strength polymer thatâ€™s reinforced with carbon fibers. This gives the camera body incredible strength and rigidity to help protect it from accidental knocks and drops which can often result in damage. The handheld design features a multi function grip which has logically placed buttons and dials that allow super fast access to essential shooting functions such as recording start/stop, still photos, ISO, shutter, aperture, white balance, power andÂ more.
Fourth generation Blackmagic Design color science lets customers shoot HDR images in film, video and new extended video modes. The new extended mode combines the latitude of digital film with an optimized video file. This gives customers working on fast turnaround projects an ideal solution for shooting great looking images that donâ€™t need a lot of color correction or post productionÂ work.
Images can be recorded onto standard SD cards, faster UHS-II cards or CFast 2.0 cards in either ProRes or RAW formats. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema CameraÂ 4K can record 4K images at up to 60 frames per second and windowed HD at up to 120 frames per second. Itâ€™s also the first camera that lets customers record directly onto the same exact external USB-C media drives they use for editing and color correction. That means customers can turn projects around much more quickly because they donâ€™t have to transfer files. All they need to do is unplug the USB-C drive and then connect it to their computer to startÂ editing.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema CameraÂ 4K uses the same MFT (Micro Four Thirds) lens mount as the original Pocket Cinema Camera so customers can use the investment in lenses they already own. The MFT mount is extremely flexible and allows for different lens adapters so customers can also use PL, C, EF and other types of lenses from manufacturers such as Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Leica and evenÂ Panavision.
The rear of the camera features a large bright 5 inch touchscreen that makes it easy to frame shots and accurately focus. It also uses the same Blackmagic OS as URSA Mini so customers can use simple tap and swipe gestures to adjust settings, add metadata and view recording status. OnÂ screen overlays make it easy to see recording parameters, status, histogram, focus and peaking indicators, and playback controls. In addition, 3D LUTs can be applied for both monitoring andÂ recording.
For audio, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema CameraÂ 4K features multiple built in microphones with an extremely low noise floor, a mini XLR input with 48 volts of phantom power to connect professional lapel and boom mics, and a 3.5mm stereo audio jack for connecting different types of video camera microphones. The high quality built in audio recording means customers donâ€™t have to carry around a separateÂ recorder.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema CameraÂ 4K also includes a full size HDMI connector which can output HDR video as well as a clean 10-bit video feed with optional on screen overlays. Thereâ€™s also an innovative high speed USB-C Expansion Port for adding external accessories such as flash drives and an SSD for external recording. The camera uses standard LP-E6 batteries and can be charged via USB-C or the locking DC power connector, which protects the camera from being accidentally unplugged during aÂ shoot.
â€œCustomers love the original Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and have been asking us for a 4K version,â€ said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO. â€œWeâ€™ve listened and built a camera that combines all of our newest ideas and customer feedback from the previous model! TheÂ Blackmagic Pocket Cinema CameraÂ 4K is exciting because it packs so much technology into an incredibly small design. We feel it will go well beyond what customers expected. Itâ€™s perfect for anyone that needs a truly professional ultra compact digital film camera. ThisÂ is not a consumer camera that's trying to do high end work, itâ€™s a true high end camera designed for high endÂ work.â€

Azden Professional Compact Cine Mic with XLR Pigtail Output
The SGM-250MX is a short length, condenser shotgun microphone that is ideal for mounting on compact digital cinema cameras. Measuring a mere 6 inches in length, the SGM-250MX can easily stay out of the way. Integrated in the microphoneâ€™s design is a hardwired, 13-inch cable with a Mini XLR connector, specially made for cinema cameras that use the smaller Mini XLR input, such as the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. The microphoneâ€™s highly sensitive, condenser element is powered by standard 48 V phantom power, which most XLR (Mini included) microphone inputs can provide.
The SGM-250MX includes Azdenâ€™s SMH-X shock mount which mounts to standard size camera shoe slots, as well as Â¼â€- 20 threaded mounts and tripods. Also included are diameter expander sheets for universal compatibility with ring-clamp style microphone mounts.
Legendary Natural Sound
The SGM-250 microphone series has become notable in the industry for its natural, professional sound. Specifically tuned to preserve the natural qualities of a speaking subject. While other manufactures hype-up the bass response on their microphones, making the audio sound muddy, or over-accentuate high mids, making dialogue tracks sound harsh, you can expect the SGM-250MX to accurately record the sound of your scene.
Not Just A Reference Microphone
You can rely on the SGM-250MX for great reference audio, but itâ€™s capable of more than that. Its low noise, and wide frequency response performance means it can capture audio good enough for the final cut. Whether you run and gun, mount to a pistol grip or a boom pole, the SGM-250MX can be your go-to mic for great dialogue capture.
