New for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.

Sophisticated style blends with practical shooting. The Retroflex rig evokes a retro style of filmmaking, when it was all about the film, and production was stylish. Now with the modern flexibility of digital filmmaking, a modular cage system, and expandable rig, the Retroflex rig makes shooting both a nostalgic joy and a modern technical delight.

The retroFlex Rig Bundle is the perfect tool for location scouting, red carpets, or use as a director’s viewfinder.

Practical Features in a Stylish Package

The retroFlex Rig Bundle for Blackmagic Pocket Camera combines retro-styling with modern practicality. At the heart of the retroFlex Rig Bundle for Blackmagic Pocket Camera is the retroFlex Cage for Blackmagic Pocket Camera. Featuring 9 mounting points including a Cold Shoe replicator, the retroFlex Cage for Blackmagic Pocket Camera adds all the functionality of a cage without the bulky size.

The open-face design of the cage keeps the Pocket Cinema’s Grip accessible and allows for easy and secure griping of the entire cage.

The backplate of the cage provides protection for the vital controls of the camera. The cage recedes the top and rear button controls behind a plate of solid aluminum to prevent accidental damage, all while still being easily accessible.

The retroFlex Rig Bundle also includes the 3x Optical Viewfinder, which allows for a clear view of the screen under all shooting conditions. The Optical Viewfinder is attached to the retroFlex Cage for Blackmagic Pocket Camera via rare-earth magnets and an integrated mounting frame that prevents light leakage. The Optical Viewfinder also features an integrated adjustable diopter, rendering a tack-sharp image for any user.

Finally, the retroFlex Rig Bundle includes a Run/Stop Pistol Grip support that allows for the camera to be triggered at a moments notice without needing to readjust one’s grip.

Upward Mobility

The open-face design of the retroFlex Cage for Blackmagic Pocket Camera allows for limitless expansion. Unlike other cages, the retroFlex Cage for Blackmagic Pocket Camera does not block or affect the lens mount, leaving it available for any lens adaptation like the LiveLens MFT or Professional PL adapters.

The optional wireLock accessory for retroFlex BMPCC Cage enables the Pocket Cinema Camera to integrate into any traditional production environment without worrying about damaging the consumer-grade ports.

Product Features

  • Retro-styling and design.
  • Fantastic ergonomics for street or vérité style shooting.
  • The cage protects the camera and adds mounting points and cold shoe options.
  • Handgrip with run/stop trigger (removable).
  • wireLock accessory to secure cables (not included).

Retro-Styling for the Modern Shooter

The retroFlex Rig Bundle for Blackmagic Pocket Camera not only adds a touch of class to the Pocket Cinema Camera, it enables shooters to compose shots and think in a manor that has long been forgotten. In the age of large cameras in intricate configurations, the retroFlex rig allows you to just pick up a camera and follow wherever it takes you.
