The Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 is the latest compact Super35 camera from Blackmagic Design. This cine-style camera has the same 6K S35 sensor, shooting functions, dynamic range, interface ports and controls as the 6K Pro, but combines a few features to fit into a smaller budget. Features the new Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 inherited from the 6K Pro include a 5" tilting touchscreen LCD, Pro EVF and battery grip options, dual mini XLR audio inputs, an NP-F570 L-series battery compartment and the updated Gen 5 color science By omitting the internal ND filters and a less bright LCD screen, you can choose between two nearly identical 6K models.
