Blackmagic’s new Pyxis 6K is an ultra-versatile rival to Sony and Panasonic for independent filmmakers

Blackmagic Design quadrupled product announcements at the world’s largest broadcast trade show, NAB 2024. First, a Pyxis 6K modular camera rivaling Sony and Panasonic for independent filmmakers; the latest version of its popular video editing platform Davinci Resolve 19 – which we consider the best free video editor; the superb Ursa Cine 12K for professionals; and finally a headline-grabbing 17K professional camera concept with a particularly large 65mm sensor – yes, 17K video.

That’s a lot of products to cover here and we’ll focus on the sub-$3,000/£3,000 Pyxis 6K, but it’s worth commenting on the 17K camera first, which is a higher resolution version of the Ursa Cine 12K. It’s not ready yet, but it’s ready to compete with the rental-only Arri Alexa 65, and it’s the kind of gear that only a select few people will be able to use for real.
