Focusing With The New Blackmagic Design Pocket 6K Camera

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:
