To absolutely none of the usual Blackmagic fanfare, the company has today released the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2. It’s a fairly big upgrade over the original Pocket 6K, as it’s essentially a Pocket 6K Pro but without the built-in ND filter, which keeps the price of the 6K G2 at $1,999, same as the original 6K. This also means you get that 5″ tilting touchscreen display, NP-F batteries, optional EVF and Mini-XLR input.
Blackmagic has also announced the new Blackmagic Camera 7.9 Update today, adding 6K G2 support and adding an updated user interface to the Pocket 4K, 6K and 6K Pro, along with focus assist intensity adjustment, custom presets and LUTs are retained after software updates and improved lens and autofocus support. It also adds support for the Pocket 6K G2 to Blackmagic RAW.
