Wide dynamic range (HDR) for incredible images, the distance between the lightest part and the darkest part of an image is called dynamic range and is measured in stops.

Large 5inch touch screen

You'll also find status information, a histogram, focus assist indicators, levels, framing guides, playback controls and more.
Record directly to external USB-C drives

Integrated timecode generator
You have professional features, including a built-in timecode generator, to shoot in perfect sync with more than one camera. Just plug an external timecode generator, such as Tentacle Sync, to the 3.5mm audio jack. The camera will automatically detect the timecode and synchronize the internal generator. Each camera will then be able to start and stop recording and all their takes will have the same timecode. In addition, the Sync Bin on the Cut page of DaVinci Resolve will automatically synchronize the clips from all cameras. So you won't waste time sorting through thousands of files!
21.2 megapixel still images
In addition to recording videos, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera can take high-resolution photos. Just press the still image button to capture a 21.2 megapixel photo with the 6K model. Since the images are saved as uncompressed DNG images, you get the best quality, which is ideal for professional printing. Still images are used to keep track during filming, to ensure continuity between takes or to be shared with clients who are not on set.
