Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro (body only, Tripod Mount incl)
Add a powerful studio camera to your 4K broadcast rig.
Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Pro is an updated compact and lightweight broadcast camera is designed for live production and provides a variety of options to record and broadcast your video. New features added to the Studio model include a lighter carbon fiber body, up to 25,600 ISO, 13 stops of dynamic range, a bigger tally light, HDMI output with camera control, 12G-SDI input and output, talkback within SDI, two USB Type-C ports for recording and control, a standard 5-pin broadcast headset jack, a speaker, built-in dual microphones, a 7" HDR LCD, a redesigned sun hood, and 10G Ethernet.
The camera offers UHD resolutions at frame rates up to 3840 x 2160p60. It is light for frequent travel, setup, and breakdown, yet durable for use in the field. It has a bright 7" capacitive touchscreen display that allows you to control all the settings right from the screen, and it features a 1920 x 1200 resolution, high-brightness HDR support for use in sunlight, and it has a detachable sun hood that was redesigned to fold down over the display for storage and protection. There are brightness, contrast, iris, and focus peaking control knobs on the sides of the display, and you can also program the F1-3 buttons on the side. The camera also features DaVinci Resolve built-in, so you can control the camera's color and brightness settings right from a computer when it's paired with a compatible ATEM switcher.
The Studio 4K Pro also provides features you'd expect to find in larger studio cameras, such as a large tally indicator with customizable number decals, talkback, a 5-pin broadcast headset plug, dual XLR audio input with phantom power, and 12G-SDI inputs/outputs. This camera also features HDMI output, and its new 10G Ethernet is an enormous pipe to use when broadcasting 4K video. You can even unplug all the HDMI and SDI cabling and utilize the 10G Ethernet to send all the video and data to a companion converter or switcher, which can even provide PoE to the camera, so you only need one cable. Its Micro Four Thirds lens mount allows you to utilize a wide range of professional photography lenses, and you can also control the lens remotely, broadcast style, with the optional Zoom Demand and Focus Demand lens controllers.
To power the camera, you can use PoE with a compatible switcher or the separately available Blackmagic Studio Converter, or you can use the included DC power adapter with a locking plug. It also has a standard 4-pin XLR power input for external sources to provide redundant power.
Compact and Lightweight Design
Large broadcasters use expensive studio cameras that are extremely large, so they're not very portable. The distinctive Blackmagic Studio Camera has all the benefits of a large studio camera because it's a combination of camera and viewfinder all in a single compact design. It features a lightweight carbon fiber reinforced polycarbonate body with innovative technology in a miniaturized design. The camera is designed for live production, so it's easy to track and frame shots with its large 7" viewfinder. The touchscreen has menus for camera settings, and there are knobs for brightness, contrast, and focus peaking. Plus, a tripod mount with 15mm LWS rod ports and mounting plate is included for fast setup.
Exceptional Low-Light Performance
In advanced cameras, ISO is a measurement of the image sensor's sensitivity to light. This means the higher the ISO the more gain can be added, so it's possible to shoot in natural light, or even at night. The Blackmagic Studio Camera features gain from -12 dB (100 ISO) up to +36 dB (25,600 ISO), so it's optimized to reduce grain and noise in images while maintaining the full dynamic range of the sensor. The primary native ISO is 400, which is ideal for use under studio lighting. The secondary high-base ISO of 3200 is perfect when shooting in dimly lit environments. The gain can be set from the camera, or remotely from a switcher using the SDI or Ethernet remote camera control.
Cinematic Images in Live Production
The amazing 4K sensor combined with Blackmagic generation 5 color science gives you the same imaging technology used in digital film cameras. That means you can now use cinematic images for live production. Plus, when combined with the built-in DaVinci Resolve primary color corrector you get much better images than simple broadcast cameras. The color corrector can even be controlled from the switcher. With 13 stops of dynamic range, the camera has darker blacks and brighter whites, perfect for color correction. The sensor features a resolution of 4096 x 2160, which is great for both HD and Ultra HD work. Plus, all models support from 23.98 up to 60 fps.
You can utilize the Focus and Zoom demands to remotely control your lens and the Blackmagic Studio Converter for a single Ethernet connection to the camera.
