In this episode, we have a look at (and listen to) the audio features on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K.
If you’d like to learn how to make great dialogue audio for your film and video projects, please have a look at my courses including processing dialogue audio, recording sound, how to use the Zoom F8 and F8n, and how to get the most from the Sound Devices MixPre series of recorders.
Links to gear used in this video:
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K - I used this to record this episode, including the audio directly from the DPA 4017b
Mini XLR to XLR Adapter Cable - you’ll need at least one of these to get a standard XLR cable into your Pocket 4K. This is a pack of 2 (always good to have a backup) and seems to be of very high quality
Blackmagic power adapter cable kit - I use the 2-pin to d-tap cable to power the Pocket 4K with an Anton Bauer Digital 90 cine battery. Will work with any cine battery with d-tap output (v-mount, gold mount, etc.)
Tentacle Sync E Timecode Generator
Deity S-Mic 2 Shotgun Microphone
RODE NTG2 Shotgun Microphone
Shure SM-58 Dynamic Microphone
Panasonic 12-35mm F/2.8 OIS Lens - Used on the Pocket 4K camera
Lupo Superpanel Dual Color Panel Model 400 - Bounced off of a big piece of white foamcore for the key light
Aputure AL-MW - background light for all of the talking head shots. Cool little waterproof light with in-built Li-Ion battery that lasts 80 minutes at full power
Aputure COB120t - background light for product shots
