PBC Controller For Pocket 4K/6K
The PBC is a pocket sized device that enables you to control and monitor the settings of your Blackmagic Pocket 4K and 6K Cinema cameras wirelessly over Bluetooth.
The two switches on the PBC have three operational modes ; Single click, double click and long click, each of which can have a different function assigned to them.
This flexibility means you can configure the PBC to switch between controlling up to six different settings on the camera including aperture, ISO, White Balance, Auto Focus, Auto Exposure and of course start stop of recording.
The current settings of the camera are displayed on the PBC's bright daylight readable screen which you can configure in any one of four different colour schemes. In addition the screen switches to red to provide a clear visual reference when the camera is recording.
From power on, the PBC connects to your camera in under 5 seconds and its large capacity internal rechargeable battery provides over five hours of continuous run time as well as being able to powered directly by USB.
Whilst the PBC is a small handheld device it can of course be mounted to a rig or gimbal or even the camera itself using an included tripod adapter rail.
As well as offering direct control of the camera functionality itself, the PBC can also be used as a wireless interface hub to incorporate both the Tilta Nucleus Nano focus wheel and our own upcoming PXP expander module.
With the Nucleus Nano wheel in Bluteooth mode, the PBC enables you to have focus control of native and adapted EF lenses on your camera without requiring gears, motors or additional power as well as being able to start and stop recording.
As the PBC operates in tandem with the Nucleus Nano wheel, this combination offers you complete hands off control of the camera, something which is very beneficial when it is mounted on a gimbal.
Using our PXP module you can also expand the possibilities of the PBC with an additional five assignable physical switches to directly control camera functions as well as an inbuilt focus control wheel.
Whether you are using the Nucleus Nano wheel or own PXP to control focus, you are able to use the PBC to store two focus points and then use the focus limiter function to prevent overshooting when transitioning between them.
All of the PBC's settings and focus control functions are fully compatible with both the Blackmagic Pocket 4K and Pocket6K cameras.
