Experience the freedom to work in various film formats and aspect ratios without compromising on quality. The large full frame sensor in the Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K allows you to shoot in open gate 3:2 format, providing the ability to reframe shots during post-production. Additionally, the camera supports true 6:5 anamorphic shooting, delivering detailed and high-resolution widescreen cinematic images. You can even utilize the Super 35 sized window on the sensor for instant close-up shots that seamlessly blend with open gate footage. Unleash your creativity and create captivating cinematic content of the highest caliber.

Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K features an L-Mount, an advanced lens mount designed to accommodate full frame sensors while ensuring compatibility with new and vintage lenses. With a large diameter of 51.6mm, L-Mount works with the latest full frame lenses from manufacturers such as Leica, Panasonic and Sigma. Plus, a very short flange distance of only 20mm means customers can easily add adapters for a variety of lens mounts without impacting image quality. With L-Mount, customers get a single mount that works with virtually any lens for unlimited creative choice.

Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K uses high capacity NP-F570 batteries. A locking DC power connector is used so customers won't have to worry about losing power during a shoot. Plus the included AC plug pack can power the camera or charge the battery when the camera is not in use. Even the USB-C expansion port can trickle charge the battery, so customers can use portable battery packs, mobile phone chargers or laptops. The optional battery grip lets customers add extra batteries to dramatically extend the power of the camera so customers can keep shooting all day.

The Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K features a built in CFexpress card recorder, and a USB-C expansion port for recording direct to external flash media disks or an SSD. CFexpress media are more durable and faster than even older media so are perfect for recording full resolution, 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files. Imagine capturing over an hour of full resolution 6K images on a single 256GB CFexpress card.

Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K can shoot in all standard resolutions and frame rates from HD up to DCI 4K and even 6K. Customers can even shoot stills at 24.6 megapixels. Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K will shoot up to 36 fps at 6048 x 4032 3:2 open gate or 60 fps at 6048 x 2520 2.4:1 and 60 fps at 4096 x 2160 4K DCI. For higher frame rates customers can window the sensor and shoot up to 100 fps at 2112 x 1184 Super 16. Customers can even work in true anamorphic 6:5 at much higher resolutions than other cameras using anamorphic lenses in 4.8K 24 fps at 4838 x 4032. Customers can even shoot 120 fps in 1080HD.
