The body is extremely lightweight being made of a composite fiber polycarbonate - that means you’ll be able to take the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K virtually anywhere and have the confidence to know that you’ll be able to get your shots, even under the harshest shooting conditions!
The full size 4/3 sensor has a native resolution of 4096 x 2160 and can capture up to 13 stops of dynamic range. The sensor size is designed to match the MFT lenses, so there’s minimal crop factor which gives you a wider field of view. With dual native ISO up to 25,600, you also get excellent low light performance! You can also shoot at up to 60 frames per second for 4K and 120 frames per second for HD. Unlike other small cameras, the high performance sensor has fast refresh rates, even when shooting at low frame rates, so you get rock solid images that don’t have wobbly shutter artifacts.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features 4/3 size sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range and dual native ISO up to 25,600 for HDR images and incredible low light performance. External controls give quick access to essential functions, while the large 5 inch touchscreen makes it easy to frame shots, focus accurately and change camera settings. Features include built in SD/UHS-II or CFast 2.0 recorders for RAW or ProRes recoding as well as a USB-C expansion port for recording externally to disks, plus MFT lens mount, built-in microphones, XLR input, full sized HDMI, 3D LUT support, Bluetooth and more.

Hi, Is this available for shipment now ? If not, how long is the current backorder wait time?
Still backordered unfortunately, we have been receiving the odd camera here and there, but they are just going to fulfill people who have paid in advance.
I believe they will be backordered for a while, best thing is to get deposit or full payment down and get your name in the queue. I know it is hard without a specific date in sight, so I do apologise, however we have very little clarity on the timeline for this one unfortunately.
Hello, can you please confirm you can get stock for the blackmagic pocket 4k in 7-10 days? I currently have ordered elsewhere but have been told months. If you can get it in a week i'll switch my order to you. Thanks.
Hi Glen, My apologies - the "7 - 10 days" is a default text that is applied to our online items that we are running low on stock of, or are awaiting re-stocking. In this case, the "7 - 10 days" ETA would be a great time line, as we, like various other dealers have a number on backorder that we have no immediate arrival date given from Blackmagic unfortunately. I understand the 7 - 10 day text might be a give customers a bit more hope than actual reality, so I have changed the product to a "inquire" form - until Blackmagic start shipping stock in Australia. If we can help with any other video production items or pricing please let us know. Kind regards Vizcom web store team.
Hello, I want to know if the BMPCC4 is ready to ship. Thx
Unfortunately - we have a number of Pocket Cinema Cameras on backorder with no arrival date as of yet. We will update the product page as soon as Blackmagic start shipping into Australia.
