Blackmagic Pocket 4K BMPCC 6K Approved SSD, CFast and SD Cards List

Picking-up the right media cards for your Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and its newer brother, the BMPCC 6K is essential, as these cameras possess some serious horsepower under the hood in terms of 4K and 6K raw recording, which demands equally fast memory cards and solid state drives that can sustain the immense data rates these formats push.

Blackmagic Design just released the updated list of approved CFast 2.0, SSD, and SD cards for both the Blackmagic Pocket 4K and the Blackmagic Pocket 6K cameras for their respectable 4K and 6K Blackmagic Raw and ProRes codecs.
