Expanded Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro Key Features:
The 6K Pro brings some serious new additions to the Pocket Cine Camera party. Firstly, the new built-in 2,4 and 6 stop ND filters provide acute reductions in the amount of light that enters the camera. They have been designed specifically to match the colourimetry and colour science of the 6K Pro, providing additional latitude even under the harshest of light. The up/down tilting HDR LCD screen now features a bright 1500 nits for use in direct sunlight, whilst two mini XLR audio inputs give you the ability to record two separate audio tracks with individual microphones. When it comes to battery life, the Pro model requires larger NP-F570 batteries to keep you powered for longer. Within the world of consumer-available cine cameras, the Blackmagic 6K Pro has come to make a real statement.
The Hollywood Aesthetic
If you have big plans for a feature film, TV pilot, or documentary series, the 6K Pro is the camera for you. As it is such a versatile pocket cine camera, you can add some serious production value to your vlogs, YouTube content, and even shoot an experimental short film. In layman’s terms, the 6K Pro provides deeper colours, higher image detail, and a wider dynamic range between the brightest highlights and the deepest shadows. Whatever your next project, this camera will be sure to give it that sought after ‘Cinematic Look’.
In regards to the post-production process, 3D LUTs have been implemented to add your desired ‘look’ to your footage whilst monitoring. This means that you get a much better idea of how the final film will look. Temporary LUTs can be assigned during monitoring, or they can be recorded into the Blackmagic RAW files for use in post-production. This camera utilises industry-standard 17 and 33 point 3D LUT files, alternatively, it can work with the built-in LUTs such as Extended Video, Film to Video, Film to Rec.2020 and many more.
Dual Gain ISO
When you require a stunning night-time scene to bring your film production to a dramatic close, the 6K Pro has got you covered. This is due to the dual gain ISO of up to 25,600 - optimised to minimise grain or noise in images, while at the same time maintaining the full dynamic range of the sensor. When there isn’t the time to set up a full lighting rig, the gain can be set automatically as you adjust the ISO setting on the camera. If you are more of a guerilla-style filmmaker out in the field, the dual gain ISO can be a real game-changer.
The 6K Pro is awash with a range of connections for audio, monitoring, and power. A full-size HDMI output can even be utilised for on-set monitoring with support for HDR and clean 10-bit output. Two mini XLR audio inputs give you the ability to record two separate audio tracks with 48-volt phantom power respectively, whilst the USB-C connection allows the user to connect and record directly to the media disk. Another great feature from Blackmagic is the duplicated controls and menu systems used across their range of cinema cameras, prioritising an efficient workflow on set. The user also acquires full control over advanced camera features such as exposure tools, 3D LUTs, HDR, and Blackmagic RAW.
For shooting 6K in the highest quality 12-bit Blackmagic RAW, simply connect to a high-speed external disk via the USB-C Expansion Port. This operates at up to 5GB/s, so when the director calls “cut” for the last time that day, you can simply move the external disk to the computer and start the post-production process from the same disk - essentially eliminating file copying.
Stylish Yet Functional Hardware
Blackmagic cine cameras are known for their good looks and functional camera bodies. The 6K Pro is no different, with the multi-functional handgrip sporting a comfortable and familiar design with essential functions such as ISO, WB and shutter buttons. Confusing menu structures and tiny LCD screens are a thing of the past, with the 6K Pro offering easy to reach recording and still buttons that are placed exactly where you expect them to be found. This includes user-assignable function keys and control buttons for high frame rate, focus zoom, menu operation, playback, and much more.
Constructed from a lightweight carbon fibre polycarbonate composite, this camera feels good in the hand and features so many customisable controls at your fingertips. These include; ISO, WB, as well as shutter angle. Since this is an advanced digital camera, it also features a sensor that is designed to reduce thermal noise. This allows for cleaner shadows and higher ISO. In addition to this, the up/down tilting HDR LCD screen makes it possible to obtain the perfect focus at both 4K and 6K resolutions respectively.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
