Focusing With The New Blackmagic Design Pocket 6K Camera
Just finished-up becoming a bit more familiar with the latest ‘Pocket’ offering from Black Magic Design… It’s incredible that even before the new has worn off the awesome Pocket 4K, here comes the brand spanking new and more powerful BMD Pocket 6K! Complete with a 6K Super-35 sized sensor and a native EF mount. First off, I wanted to try out the one-touch autofocus feature to see how intuitive it is to ‘point, touch & focus’, so I slapped on a Canon 16-35mm L 2.8 and started pointing’ and pressing.
It actually works quite well and the lens snapped right into focus when I pressed and released the focus button (The face of GI Joe was my subject… See photo)… Just point, press, and presto, your focus is ‘Auto-pulled’… that, coupled with the focus assist made for some nice sharp hand-held shots… so far everything is looking good (At least with Canon L lenses)… And the price?: $2495.00… Wow! Want to learn more details about the BMD Pocket 6K and available accessories? … Call us at Texas Media Systems. Our number is: 512-440-1400… and here’s a link to the Pocket 6K page on our website:

ATOMOS is offering a pre-NAB promotion on Shogun & Ninja Inferno units valid on March 15 – March 31, 2019!
The Shogun Inferno is the best of everything Atomos does in a single product; 4K 60p, HD 240p, Cinema DNG Raw recording over Quad SDI connections. Like the Shogun Flame this unit features 1500nit brightness, HDR brightness range and a 10-bit panel with dual battery continuous power on the back. The Inferno adds in PQ in/out so that its not just HDR on the Inferno, the PQ output lets you connect to HDR panels and the PQ in lets you connect from your NLE for grading using the Inferno.
Shogun Inferno Improvements:
High quality 4K 60p and HD 240p ProRes and DNxHR recording, from either a video or Raw signal – perfect for sports broadcasters and slow motion recordings
Raw to Raw CDNG recording up to 4K DCI/UHD 30p or 2K/HD 120p. CDNG support will also be added to existing Shogun Flame, Shogun and Shogun Studio users one month after the launch of Inferno.
Versatility of Quad SDI connections to let you input from cameras with 1.5/3/6/12G SDI outputs without the need for converters – perfect for 4K HDR multi cam events
PQ (ST-2084) input that allows you to use Inferno as a grading monitor in Post
PQ (ST-2084) output standard HDR to compatible TVs and monitors
AtomHDR. AtomHDR image processing lets you shoot with the high brightness range of your camera’s Log profile while maintaining vibrant true-to-life colors. Conventional monitors lack this capability, displaying the brightness detail of Log but with a washed out image that makes judging exposure difficult. Be at the forefront of the HDR revolution by having a field monitor capable of resolving HDR in the field as you see it in Post Production and record the original Log image direct from the sensor for HDR grading in post production.
The AtomHDR engine lets you monitor a post production HDR image in the field on a 7″ calibrated screen. For collaboration on set or in post, connect Shogun Inferno to HDR compatible larger screens, select the desired color space (Rec709, DCI P3 or Rec2020) and see the magic of HDR on larger screen sizes. Use the PQ input to connect from your NLE and use the Inferno as a monitor to grade HDR in Post.
4K 60p & HD 240p Recording. Shogun Inferno combines high resolution recording, high frame rate recording and playback. Record Video from both HDMI and SDI cameras direct from the sensor to 4:2:2 10-bit ProRes or DNxHR up to an amazing 4K 60p or HD 240p. Record Raw over SDI up to 4K 30p either directly to CDNG or record to ProRes or DNxHR. Playback recorded ProRes or DNxHR files via the HDMI or SDI output at the same high frame rates to supporting monitors.
CDNG Raw over Quad SDI. The Quad SDI connections offer the widest camera compatibility with 1.5G/3G/6G/12G SDI inputs and a convenient single 12G SDI output. This allows you to connect single link from SD 1.5G, HD 3G, 4K 30p 6G or 4K 60p 12G. Connect any combination of 3G connections up to Quad SDI at 4K 60p. Conveniently link a Quad SDI workflow to a single 12G workflow through the Shogun Inferno which acts as a 4 to 1 converter with 12G SDI and 4K HDMI output from the Quad input.
The Atomos Ninja Inferno is an HDMI monitor / recorder that accepts 4K signals from both Professional UHD 4K Cameras and DCI 4K Cameras. Its 7″ high-resolution monitor with AtomHDR delivers 10 stops of dynamic range to match 10-bit camera LOG footage.
Monitor. The Ninja Inferno expands on the impressive Atomos Ninja line with a seven inch monitor boasting 1500nit brightness. Apart from being an obvious companion for 4Kp60 cameras like the GH5, the Ninja Inferno is the world’s first HDMI monitor-recorder to accept 4K DCI signals from cameras like the Panasonic GH5/GH4/DVX200/HCX1000/UX180/HCX1, Sony FS7/Z100 and the JVC LS300. The Ninja Inferno can also playout HDR as PQ or HLG to larger HDR compatible screens or feed HDR in as a PQ or HLG signal for mobile HDR grading.
Record. Record 4K 60p Apple ProRes or DNxHR on the Ninja Inferno in 10-bit 4:2:2 color accuracy and 24/25/30/50/60p frame rates. Bypass the internal recording limitations of certain 4K 60p 10-bit cameras with this versatile recorder. Auto HDMI start/stop recording trigger from selected Canon, Sony, Panasonic and Nikon cameras and convert interlaced video from your camera to progressive with built-in 3:2 and 2:2 pulldown. Record any HDMI source — including gaming consoles and PCs.
XLR Audio. An optional XLR breakout cable with 48V phantom power allows users to connect and power external microphones. Monitor and record up to 8ch of embedded HDMI 2.0 24bit digital audio.
Power. The Atomos Ninja Inferno uses a hot-swappable dual battery system and also features DC mains connectivity. Audio control is simple with dedicated meters and menus to select channels for recording/monitoring and adjustments for frame delay and gain.

The new Canon C300 Mark II Touch Focus Kit enables touchscreen auto focus using the 4″ Touchscreen LCD Monitor (LM-V1) that has been shipping with the C200. Also included is the MA-400 XLR accessory, which is a separate XLR unit. Canon spent a lot of time rethinking how the C300 Mark II could be rigged using the LM-V1 Touch Screen LCD and the MA-400 XLR accessory. Using these two accessories instead of the traditional “clamshell” Monitor/XLR unit allows for a more flexible and arguable more streamlined set-up. Additionally, if a user doesn’t need XLR, they can now rig the C300 Mark II with the LCD only for an incredibly small set-up. This also allows easier rigging with Gimbal Stabilizers. And the Top Handle is still included! The LCD and XLR accessory can be configured in many ways with or without the top handle.
New items included in the Canon C300 Mark II Touch Focus Kit 0635C032 includes:
In the box: EOS C300 MK II Body (EF Mount), Grip, Camera Cover, Handle Unit, Handle Bracket, Battery Pack BP-A30, Battery Charger CG-A10, Compact Power Adapter CA-A10, Eye Cup, Hexagon Socket, Allen key, Viewfinder Cap, Thumb rest, Tripod base TB-1, WFT Attachment, Measuring Hook, AC Cable x2, DC Cable(for CA-940), Shoulder Strap SS-1200, LM-V1, MA-400, Mount To Shoe Adapter, 492LCD Micro Ball Head, Instruction Manual
