Record using standard SD cards, UHS-II cards or CFast 2.0 media
When it comes to recording, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K gives you 3 kinds of media to choose from. Images can be recorded on to standard SD cards, faster UHS-II cards or CFast 2.0 cards.

CFast cards can record 12-bit RAW at all supported frame rates. For longer recording times, you can also record directly to an external SSD or flash disk using the built in USB-C Expansion Port. Best of all, there’s nothing proprietary. The files will work with all professional post production software. You can even mount the media cards on your computer and start editing directly from them using the included DaVinci Resolve Studio software.
