Nauticam BMPCC6K Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Underwater Housing
Nauticam BMPCC6K Housing for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
The Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera, the BMPCC6K, brings professional cinema-grade cameras to a portable, affordable body. With this, the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, BlackMagic is adding an EF mount to compliment the larger 6K Super35 sensor. The BMPCC6K takes many of the features from Black Magic's sister line up, including BlackMagic RAW recording and 60fps capture at full resolution.
The BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
More than just a 6K version of the already capable Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K adds a larger Super35 sensor behind an EF lens mount. Bothy cameras feature the ability to capture full-resolution (6K at 6144 x 3456) capture at 60fps in BlackMagic RAW format. Dual Native ISO means there are two base ISO levels, ISO 400 for scenes with adequate natural light and ISO 3200 for those low-light situations. Each of the base ISO levels offers a similar level of dynamic range while minimizing noise in the image.
The Pocket Cinema Camera 6K also supports the use of an external power supply and recording direct to external media via USB-C 3.1. An HDMI output (1080p) allows for the use of an external monitor or recorder.
N120 Port System
With the camera's new 6K Super35 sensor, the larger EF mount means the NA-BMPCC6K is designed around Nauticam's N120 Port System. The addition of cinema styled Zoom and Focus knobs to the housing adds to the flexibility of the system, allowing users to choose between N120 Cinema System EF-mount gears OR N120 DSLR Canon EF-mount gears. When used with the Cinema System gears, Focus and Zoom are controlled by the control dials on the housing, whereas with the standard DSLR style gears the function will be similar to that on a Nauticam DSLR housing with the Zoom controlled on the housing and Focus by the control gear on the port extension. In addition to the standard ports available in this system the NA-BMPCC6K will have access to the latest Nauticam premium professional optics such as the Wide Angle Conversion Port (WACP), the SMC-1/2 magnifiers.
T5 SSD Support
More than just an underwater housing, the NA-BMPCC6K is an underwater cinema platform. Inside the housing is dedicated notch for a Samsung T5 USB-C SSD. The BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K can record directly to the T5, making the transition from capture to edit seamless.
The included Nauticam 18650 Battery Holder can hold 4 x 18650 lithium batteries (not included) to power the camera for up to 2.5 hours and is securely mounted below the camera yet easy to remove and charge.
Nauticam engineers are driven to produce housings that are intuitive and easy to use. Essential to the capture process is effortless access to the camera's essential controls. On the housing's left side are large cinema-style focus and zoom gear controls. The NA-BMPCC6K features Nauticam's refined ergonomic handles with stainless steel stiffening brackets and changeable accessory mounting points. From the left handle a thumb lever accesses the Playback function. From the right handle the record lever and a dual-action lever for ISO and shutter speed can be reached. A second thumb lever towards the rear activates the White Balance and Focus controls.
The NA-BMPCC6K features both an M28 and M16 bulkheads for HDMI accessories such as the Nauticam NA Ninja V or NA-502B monitor housings. The housing is also compatible with tripod mounting-ball set in addition to 1/4-20 UNC connection on the top and bottom of the housing.
