Designed for Live Production
While Blackmagic Studio Camera is designed for live production, it’s not limited to use with a live switcher! That’s because it records Blackmagic RAW to USB disks, so it can be used in any situation where you use a tripod! The large 7″ viewfinder makes it perfect for work such as chat shows, television production, broadcast news, sports, education,
conference presentations and even weddings! The large bright display with side handles, touch screen and physical controls makes it easy to track shots while being comfortable to use for long periods of time. Because it’s so lightweight, it’s perfect when you’re constantly changing locations and doing different kinds of work.
Revolutionary Studio Camera 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’s knobs for brightness, contrast and focus peaking. Plus a tripod mount with mounting plate is included for fast setup!
Get 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 3840 x 2160 which is great for both HD and Ultra HD work. Plus, all models support from 23.98 fps up to 60 fps.
Affordable Photographic Lenses!
With the popular MFT lens mount, Blackmagic Studio Cameras are compatible with a wide range of affordable photographic lenses. Photographic lenses are incredible quality because they’re designed for use in high resolution photography. Plus, the active lens mount lets you adjust the lens remotely! To eliminate the need to reach around to adjust the lens zoom
and focus, the optional focus and zoom demands let you adjust the lens from the tripod handles just like a large studio camera! This means you avoid camera shake when adjusting the lens, so you can track shots and operate the camera without taking your hands off the tripod! It gives you the same feel as an expensive B4 broadcast lens!
Physical and Touchscreen Controls
Blackmagic Studio Cameras feature physical buttons and knobs as well as controls on the touchscreen. Knobs on the right side of the camera allow adjusting of the brightness, contrast and focus peaking. The focus peaking knob is incredibly useful as it lets you fine tune the detail highlight so you can get perfect focus as you zoom. The 3 function buttons on the left can have
functions assigned to them, such as zebra, false color, focus peaking, LUTs and more! Plus you can change the function assigned to each button in the menus. The touchscreen also includes a heads up display with the most important shooting information, as well as menus for all camera settings, LUTs and custom presets.
Four Ways to Connect
Blackmagic Studio Cameras can be connected in lots of different ways! All models feature HDMI so are perfect for HDMI switchers such as ATEM Mini. The HDMI supports video, tally, control and record trigger for a broadcast style workflow using a single HDMI cable. The Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro has 12G‑SDI so you can connect it to SDI based switchers such as
the ATEM Constellation. There’s a 12G‑SDI connection for camera video, and one for program return. The program return also includes tally, talkback and remote camera control. Or you can use 10G Ethernet to get camera video, program return, tally, talkback, camera control and even power using a regular Cat6A Ethernet cable!
Connect via HDMI
Using the HDMI output, you can connect to switchers such as ATEM Mini! Plus the HDMI connection supports sending tally, color corrector control and record trigger back to the camera from the switcher.
Connect via SDI
The SDI model uses the SDI output and the SDI program return for 2 way talkback between the camera and any SDI ATEM switcher. Tally and control is also sent to the camera via the SDI program return.
Connect via Ethernet
The 10G Ethernet connection allows all signals and camera power using a single Cat 6A copper Ethernet cable! That includes the camera video, program return, tally, talkback, camera control and more!
Connect via USB Disk
You can even shoot without a switcher as the large screen makes the camera fantastic for shooting while recording to Blackmagic RAW on a USB flash disk. The big screen makes framing shots very easy!
Low Cost SMPTE Fiber Style Workflow
The Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro model supports connecting cameras via a single Ethernet cable. It’s so simple, just plug in and you’re ready! Traditional broadcast studio cameras use SMPTE fiber to communicate and power cameras, however SMPTE fiber is very expensive. Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro model has 10G Ethernet as an alternative to
SMPTE fiber so it’s much lower cost. The Ethernet includes all camera video, program return feeds, tally, talkback, camera control and also power. The Blackmagic Studio Converter handles all video conversions at the switcher end plus adds power to the Ethernet cable. That means you don’t need to connect power to the camera!
Includes Built-in Microphones
Blackmagic Studio Cameras include built in microphones so you get sound included in the design making setup much faster. Plus the built in microphones are shock and wind resistant, so you get great sound even in tough conditions! With each microphone placed at the edges of the screen, you get the advantage of the studio camera design for better stereo
separation than what is possible on a regular video camera. There’s also a 3.5mm audio input for connecting video camera microphones as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. On the Blackmagic Studio Camera Pro model you get professional XLR audio inputs and a built in speaker for listening to the program return audio.
Monitor Program Video
The Blackmagic Studio Camera lets you view program video from the switcher at the press of a button! Simply press the camera’s PGM button and the viewfinder will switch from the camera display to the program return feed from the switcher. Plus the built in speaker lets you monitor the switcher audio. Program return is a fantastic feature as sometimes on large live. shows, camera operators can be left waiting a long time for their camera to be used, so program return lets them watch the show while they wait. This means even if the camera operator is a large distance away from the switcher, they can still keep up with what’s happening and remain alert.
Powers from DC or 10G Ethernet
Blackmagic Studio Cameras have lots of different power options! All models have a common 12V DC locking power connector so the cable won’t be accidentally pulled out. Plus, the camera includes a power supply with 5 different AC socket adapters for different countries. However if you’re using a single Ethernet cable to connect to the Blackmagic Studio
Camera 4K Pro model, then the whole camera and its accessories can be powered from the Ethernet connection. The Blackmagic Studio Converter has a large power supply that adds PoE power to the Ethernet cable so you don’t need any power connection to the camera. That’s a great solution when there’s no power available where the cameras are placed!
Blackmagic Studio Converter
With 10G Ethernet on the Pro model, you can connect all signals to the camera with the one Ethernet IP link connection. That means the camera feed, return program feed, timecode, reference, tally, talkback and control are all sent down the single cable. That’s the same benefits of SMPTE fiber, but the standard 10G copper Ethernet cable is much lower cost. The Blackmagic Studio Converter allows breakout of all the video, audio and talkback connections at the studio end. It also includes a massive power supply that powers the camera down the Ethernet cable, so you don’t need a power source near the camera. Plus you can fit 2 per rack unit using a Blackmagic Universal Rack Shelf!
