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

Blackmagic Design quadruple-dropped product announcements at the world’s leading broadcasting show, NAB 2024. First, a Sony and Panasonic-rivalling Pyxis 6K modular camera for indie filmmakers; the latest version of its popular video editing platform Davinci Resolve 19 – which we rate as the best free video editor; the superb Ursa Cine 12K for pros; and finally a headline-grabbing concept 17K pro camera with particularly large 65mm sensor – yes, 17K video. 

That’s a lot of product to cover here and we’re going to focus on the sub $3,000 / £3,000 Pyxis 6K, but first it’s worth commenting on the 17K camera, which is a higher-resolution version of the Ursa Cine 12K. It isn’t ready yet, but is set to rival the hire-only Arri Alexa 65, and is the kind of gear that only a select few people will get to use for real.
