♪ All right, all right ♪ ♪ Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah ♪ ♪ Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah ♪ ♪ All right, all right ♪ – Hey, guys, I’m Patrick. I’m the lead editor and
producer at LumaForge, and today we’re gonna be talking about the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 6K. With this new camera,
we have the opportunity to use EF mount lenses. So, if you’ve gotta
bunch of old Canon glass, and you’re looking to use a
new camera that shoots in 6K, this might be the camera for you. Because of the move to
EF, there are a few things that we get that aren’t
necessarily super-obvious. First off, we have a larger sensor size, which is going to give us
a shallower depth of field at the same field of view. If you’ve wanted to have that separation between your subject and your background, this is gonna be a real help. Second, because we’ve moved to EF and we’re on a larger sensor, we’re actually getting more photosites, which gives us a higher
overall resolution. And because we’re in 6K,
there are a few things that we get to do that we can’t do in 4K. For one, if you’re delivering in 4K, you now have the opportunity to reframe and crop
within that 4K delivery. Additionally, if you need to
do any image stabilization, you’re going to be able
to get a cleaner result because of the higher pixel count. One of my favorite things, of
having the higher resolution and larger sensor, is
going to be the change in noise in low-light situations. Now, the amount of noise that’s actually in the image may not change. But, because we’re
working with more pixels, and the number of pixels
in the same image size on your computer screen
is going to be higher, the noise itself is going to be smaller. Now a potential downside to working in 6K is the fact that it does
require more bandwidth, and if you were working in any other RAW, it would take a lot more compute power. However, Blackmagic has
developed Blackmagic RAW such that it plays back very
smoothly on your computer. And if you’re unsure whether or not your computer will playback
that 6K Blackmagic RAW, they have a new Blackmagic RAW speed test. Now, this isn’t a disk speed test. It is specifically meant to test the speed of your CPU and GPU when
playing back Blackmagic RAW. So what are you excited about
with the new Pocket Cinema 6K? Let us know in the comments below, and thanks so much for watching. (electronics chirping)
