Blackmagic Design Blackmagic Production Camera 4K
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K from Blackmagic Design features a Super 35mm sized image sensor with
a global shutter and a Canon EF compatible lens mount. The camera is capable of recording Ultra HD 4K in the
visually lossless, compressed CinemaDNG RAW or Apple ProRes 422 (HQ). The built-in recorder utilizes
removable 2.5" SSDs, which enable the high data rates required by RAW and 880Mbps ProRes. The camera's
ability to expose for 12 stops of dynamic range lends the image a truly film-like look, and the Super 35mm
(21.12 x 11.88mm) sized sensor approximates the standard of traditional film.
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K retains the beautifully crafted design and machined aluminum chassis of
the original Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Much like its predecessor, this camera features a 5" touchscreen LCD
display with 800 x 480 resolution, which enables monitoring and playback as well as an efficient means for
navigating the menu and entering metadata. The camera also includes a full license for DaVinci Resolve color
grading software and UltraScope for live scopes via a Thunderbolt connection.
Super 35 Sensor with Global Shutter
With a large Super 35 size sensor you get familiar framing and behavior from the lenses you already own. The
sensor features a global shutter so you get perfect panning, without rolling shutter artifacts.
Canon EF Compatible Lens Mount
With the EF compatible lens mount you can choose high quality optics that are designed to take advantage of
the large Super 35 size sensor with minimal cropping. Use lenses from leading manufacturers like Canon, Zeiss,
Nikon and more. The active mount enables full electronic control with compatible EF mount lenses.
Ultra HD 4K and 1080HD
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K records Ultra HD 4K and 1080HD in visually lossless compressed
CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes 422 (HQ) files. At a massive 3840 x 2160 pixels, Ultra HD 4K is 4 times the size of
1080HD. The camera also features a single 6G-SDI output which supports Ultra HD live production.
Built-in SSD Recorder
The camera's built-in recorder utilizes removable 2.5" SSDs. You can playback directly from the camera, mount
the disk to any computer, or use Blackmagic Design's HyperDeck Studio deck. When finished shooting, simply
connect the SSD to a computer and edit or color grade shots straight from the disc.
12 Stops of Dynamic Range
With 12 stops of dynamic range you get amazing looking images beyond those of regular video cameras or
even many high-end broadcast cameras. All this dynamic range is captured into ProRes or CinemaDNG files at
4K resolution, so images retain a beautiful film look. By capturing more detail from the sensor you have greater
creative flexibility in post production. You can really push the shadows or highlights in either direction and
preserve fine details.
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K uses standard connections, so you never need to source custom cables.
It includes a 6G-SDI connection for Ultra HD resolution or down converted HD output over a single SDI cable.
The built in Thunderbolt connection lets you plug into a laptop computer and use the included UltraScope
software for real time waveform monitoring, and the 1/4" jack mic/line inputs enable high quality
uncompressed audio recordings. Other connections include a 12 to 30 volt DC input, a 3.5mm headphone input
socket and LANC remote control.
Touchscreen LCD Display
The integrated 5" LCD display features 800 x 480 resolution and touchscreen technology. Use the capacitive
touchscreen to access menus and change settings such as recording format, shutter angle and more. Double
tap the screen to zoom into the image for fast and accurate focus. Tap once on the screen to display the
metadata entry page where you can enter information such as shot number, search tags, scene number,
timecode and more. You can even set shot number and other data to increment automatically. This metadata
saves directly into your files and is compatible with popular editing software, simplifying file management in
Flexible Power Options
The inclusion of an internal rechargeable battery makes the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K a truly portable
high resolution camera. You get up to 90 minutes of recording time from the battery and the remaining power
information is shown in the data strip at the bottom of the picture. The wide input voltage of 12-30V means
you can connect external professional battery packs that will let you operate the camera longer while
recharging the internal battery at the same time.
The LANC protocol is a standard method for the remote control of many professional cameras. The Blackmagic
Production Camera 4K features a standard 2.5mm jack for connecting to a remote that lets you trigger the
camera to start and stop recording, plus it supports electronic lens control of the focus and iris, all using an
industry standard protocol and jack connection.
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K also includes DaVinci Resolve color grading software and UltraScope.
The FOCUS button turns the peaking display on and off, and the IRIS button adjusts iris settings when used with
a compatible EF mount lens. Other features include an integrated mono microphone, a mono speaker, three
1/4"-20 UNC threaded mounting points on the top of the camera and one 1/4"-20 UNC threaded tripod mount
with locator pin on the bottom
