the Pocket 6K has a 5-inch 1080p and can not be counted in dots but if you wanted to put it in dots it’s 6.3 million dots touchscreen LCD.
In comparison with the Panasonic S1H, it has a 3.2-inch 2.3 million dots touchscreen LCD so the Blackmagic Pocket 6K takes the point over here.
the Pocket 6K doesn’t have a tilt or flip screen whereas the Panasonic S1H has both a tilting and a flip screen and wins at this point.
However, the Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 6K does not have a top screen in comparison with S1H it has a top screen and wins this point.
Pocket 6K features a super 35 full frame sensor almost 80% bigger than Blackmagic 4K that uses Four Thirds (4/3) HDR sensor the Super 35 sensor does offer a little bit more light on the sensor than the previous model 4K which offers things like shallow depth of field maybe a little bit better in low light.
In comparison with its competitors the Panasonic S1H features a full-frame sensor and a 24.2-megapixel sensor, the pocket 6k has a super 35 sensor and features 21.2 megapixels.
the Panasonic S1H offers DFD autofocus and the pocket 6k does not offer any type of continuous autofocus.
the S1H has million dot EVF and the pocket 6k doesn’t even have it, the Blackmagic pocket 6k can record to SSD which is the cheapest price per gigabyte alternative out there, the pocket 6K record12-bit raw internally whereas the S1H does 12-bit raw through HDMI.
the Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 6K has a 1.69 crop in comparison with the Panasonic S1H has a 1.5 or APS-C size crop in 4k 60.
the Blackmagic pocket 6K uses Canon EF class and offers 235 lenses and the Panasonic S1H offers 58 lenses.
the pocket 6K can take a Cfast an SD but can also record to SSD through USB type C whereas the S1H has dual SD card slots.
the Panasonic s1h offers one of the best in class cooling systems that is also weather sealed and I’ve heard no reports of overheating issues even when shooting for long periods of time in comparison the pocket 6k also offers a very solid cooling system.
in-body stabilization capabilities
the pocket 6k does not have in-body stabilization and the Panasonic S1H offers up to six stops of stabilization when used with a stabilized lens.
the pocket 6k has full-size HDMI mini xlr 3.5 millimeter headphone and microphone jacks and can also receive time code through one of those 3.5 millimeter jacks whereas the Panasonic S1H has full-size HDMI 3.5 millimeter headphone and microphone jacks as well as a Syncro port that can also receive time code.
Blackmagic battery life is really horrible the Panasonic S1H offers 400 shots using the LCD 380 shots using the EVF and 1150 shots in power saving mode and offers a 3100 milliamp hour battery.
Blackmagic pocket 6K comes in at $1,900 while the Panasonic S1H comes in at $3,500 so the point goes to the Blackmagic pocket 6K because it is by far the cheapest camera almost half the price of the rest but yet is still a very capable 6K camera.
the Panasonic s1h is the only one to offer features like waveforms vector scopes and luminance meters and is the Netflix approved camera.
