FIRST LOOK! Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K! NAB 2018!



what's cooking everybody Dave altes are here at NAB 2018 and we are with Blackmagic as you see behind me the Blackmagic pocket Cinema Camera 4k so this camera has 4k up to 60 frames per second you can record at 120 frames per second in HD it does crop in a bit on the HD sensor when you're recording 120 frames per second but that's still amazing you can record all flavors of pro res you can record raw D&G at the moment we do not have confirmation whether or not the pocket camera will record fro reservoir or not but I am thinking that we will see a firmware update in the future giving us pro res Raw which of course is the brand new codec from Apple which is amazing we can go up to 25,000 ISO it's a dual native ISO I did not get confirmation that this camera has the same GH 5s sensor in it or not but I am guessing that it is the same we're seeing similar performance similar dynamic range different types of things like that one of my favorite kind of nuanced features about this camera is actually some of the button layout they've put a record button on the front right where your thumb would go on the grip that's really designed specifically for youtubers and people who are filming themselves a lot which i think is really fascinating that they would do this and go to all that trouble you can also reach around with your index and middle finger and push the focus and auto exposure on the back which is just really cool so you can just pick it up nail your focus with the hair middle finger and then nail your exposure with your index finger on the back really cool the autofocus obviously is not gonna be as good you don't have any type of tracking whatsoever there's no selfie screen but the focus thing they have it just kind of locks in on the center of the image and you just push the button it's like a push AF and it's okay like if you're just framing yourself doing selfie mode and you just push that autofocus it'll lock on your face fine another great addition is we have Canon LP e6 batteries in the camera giving us roughly an hour of battery life which is amazing we've got to see fast card slot and a UHS 2-speed SD card slot we can also record externally on a USB see hard drive which is amazing so if you are recording an interview for like an hour or two hours you can just plug in a one terabyte hard drive and record externally on that and then when you're done just eject it and plug it in your computer and start editing of course we get the amazing super flat black magic log image to grade with in post I personally love the color science coming off of black magic and when you do proper grading with that flat image the image can just look amazing you're getting roughly 13 stops of dynamic range and if you're shooting raw you can pull down your exposure and everything everything that you're used to with raw the raw obviously is gonna be pretty large because we're not seeing really a big compression with the raw it's pretty uncompressed they've also upgraded the microphones on the camera which is kind of weird to think but potentially the microphones could be good enough to use without using an external mic on the front it's right there if you're vlogging and doing stuff like that just put a seven to fourteen millimeter lens you can totally vlog with it and it might be good enough the bodies that we're holding are pretty heavy and it's because the prototypes that we're holding are made of metal the ones that will ship will be a lot lighter it's like a plasticy kind of material I hope it'll hold up I hope it'll be rugged enough we also get a full touch screen on the back and a really nice user interface I personally think that the Blackmagic user interface is one of the most simple and cleanest interfaces out there of course we get focus peaking zebras all the things that you're used to getting with proper video cameras a full size HDMI out we've got a headphone jack a microphone input and the ability to put a locking AC power unit on it something that you don't see typically so you can plug it in and it's locked so the AC power units not going to come out I'm not sure what the sensor size is exactly they were saying that it's 4/3 but if you know what it is let me know in the comment section below because I'm not sure what the actual crop vector is on the camera overall I do think this might be the star of the show this year at NAB it's gonna be the talk of the town here in Las Vegas I know I'm personally really excited to get one they're not shipping until September and because it's black magic we know that it'll probably take til December or next nab before we actually can get them they have a past of releasing things slowly hopefully they will stay true to their promises and ship it in Sept here's the kicker this thing only costs $1,200 or $12.99 I can't believe how freakin cheap this is this is half the price of a GH 5s roughly and it's giving us similar if not better performance so anyways I'm really excited about this camera we can't wait to get our hands on it because it's gonna be really popular make sure to stay subscribed and hit that notification bell we're gonna be uploading a lot of videos here at NAB 2018 once again I'm Dave Altizer this is keno tikka see you later

    It's almost as if a camera company listened to what people want and then built it :O

    Do not buy this camera from BandH!!! They lie through their teeth. I ordered Dec 3rd, they said “December 30th delivery, then January 15th, now April 15th”. I cancelled my order. Liars. Go through Indy retailer!!

    One thing that really bugs me is the ergonomics and screen distraction most cameras are plagued with. I don’t want to look at a million indicators, graphs, levels, etc. when viewing the screen, for example. I want a clear view of what I’m getting. Looks like this cam at least gets the aspect/size thing down.

    I really like this design and look forward to seeing it in person. What I am not looking forward to is listening to another video where the person speaking uses the word AMAZING way way too much. People of your generation use this word so much that it don’t mean shit anymore, ain’t that just amazing.

    Great Video

    Is there a camera that can directly stream to facebook or youtube while recording instead of connecting to PC and using software like OBS?

    Thanks.
