Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 6K G2 camera delivers enhanced features for under $2,000

Blackmagic Design just launched a new addition to its pocket cinema camera line, the BMPCC 6K G2, which is an intriguing entry into the cinema camera market. I recently predicted that Blackmagic would be coming out with a new Pocket Cinema 6K camera, and I hate to say I told you so, but I did. The new BMPCC 6K also comes with improved autofocus, again as predicted, but it still likely won’t rival Canon, Sony, or Nikon. However, it is much faster and tighter and produces even cleaner images. 

You may wonder how I knew this so quickly. Did I receive a review unit already? No, I have not, but one is on the way. I know this because Blackmagic updated the focus system via firmware for its other BMPCC cameras, the 4K, 6k, and 6K Pro. The update, which you can find on Blackmagic’s site, is now available for all owners of the previously mentioned cameras. I updated my 6K and 4K and was blown away by how fast the autofocus is, but also the improved image quality. The UI remains largely the same, but looks a bit cleaner, and a record icon was added to the display screen, which makes for faster touch recording.
