Metabones Announces Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K Support

PDF version


Vancouver, Canada, March 22, 2019 - To better support the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, Metabones® is making 3 changes: new firmware to enable autofocus, new optics optimized for the new sensor, and a new name for the existing BMPCC Speed Booster®.


While most lenses can be powered by the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K camera body, certain lenses such as Canon EF 85/1.2L II USM, Tamron lenses and Tokina Opera 50/1.4 (this is not an exhaustive list) may require an external 5V power source supplied via the micro USB port of the adapter because the camera body is unable to supply enough power to these lenses. When you shop for a power solution for your camera we recommend getting one with an auxiliary 5V output to supply the lens.

About Metabones

Metabones®, together with its allied partners Caldwell Photographic and WB Design, is the pioneer and leader of two key technologies which have catalyzed the transition from mirror to mirrorless. Speed Booster® (winner of the 2013 TIPA Best Photo Accessory Award) makes lenses brighter, wider and sharper, and Smart Adapter™ breaks the lens mount compatibility barrier by electronically integrating interchangeable single-lens reflex (SLR) lenses and mirrorless cameras. Metabones® offers a comprehensive range of adapters covering most popular lens mounts, as well as some rare and exotic ones. "Always at the forefront of innovation without ever setting aside practicality as a professional tool" perhaps best epitomizes Metabones' philosophy.
