The Match Pack™ for Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K arms you with all the options to capture seamless footage. Regardless of your media preference for internal or external recording, both AV PRO CFast 2.0 and the SSD2GO PKT (mounting bracket included) options offer effortless compatibility and fast sustained write speeds for high frame rate captures that keep pace with your most demanding shots.
Angelbird have created a Match Pack™ that uses the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K’s innovative USB-C expansion port and the camera’s option to record on CFast 2.0 cards as well. The massive bandwidth of the USB-C expansion port lets you hook up an external SSD to record high-quality lossless 12-bit RAW or even high frame rates at 60 frames per second in 4K and, hence, makes significantly longer recording times possible. And you know best that this can be important when shooting. The CFast 2.0 card lets you capture 12-bit RAW at all supported frame rates.
Additionally, when you’re done filming, you can use the same drives for editing and post-production, because the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K includes a full version of the DaVinci Resolve Studio software.
Before Angelbird release any new Match Pack™, they run numerous tests with the camera that they want to match their storage device with and yes, like with so many of their custom solutions, they don’t stop tweaking until it fits your new camera like a glove.
They say time waits for no man and the same is true for all technologies including media cards. The most common cards used today are SDXC cards, followed by CFast but in the last two years we’ve seen XQD card slots appear on new cameras. More recently we’ve seen CFexpress media cards appear but what is the difference, and which is best? SDXC cards The first Secure Digital or SD card was launched in 2000. As demand for larger volumes due to larger file sizes and better data rates grew so the humble 32MB card evolved through SDHC (High Capacity around 2006) into SDXC cards (eXtra Capacity from 2011). SDXC cards are fast, very common in the market and are relatively affordable. The very latest standard is SD Ultra Capacity (SDUC) with volumes up-to 128TB. Like current SDXC cards SDUC has a UHS-II interface to deliver data rates of up to 985 MB/second, good for recording compressed 8K video. Holdan offers a range video rated SDXC cards from AngelBird (V90), Panasonic (V90) and Wise (Class 10).
