Blackmagic Studio Cameras have the same features as large studio cameras, miniaturized into aÂ single compact and portable design. Plus with digital film camera dynamic range and color science, the cameras can handle extremely difficult lighting conditions while producing cinematic looking images. TheÂ sensor features an ISO up to 25,600 so you can create amazing images even in dimly lit venues. ItÂ even works under moonlight! Advanced features include talkback, tally, camera control, built in color corrector, Blackmagic RAW recording to USB disks, live streaming and more! YouÂ can even add aÂ focus and zoom demand for lensÂ control!
While Blackmagic Studio Camera is designed for live production, itâ€™s not limited to use with aÂ live switcher! Thatâ€™s because it records Blackmagic RAW to USB disks, so it can be used in any situation where you use aÂ tripod! TheÂ large 7" viewfinder makes it perfect for work such as chat shows, television production, broadcast news, sports, education, conference presentations and even weddings! TheÂ 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 itâ€™s so lightweight, itâ€™s perfect when you're constantly changing locations and doing different kinds ofÂ work.
Large broadcasters use expensive studio cameras that are extremely large, so theyâ€™re not very portable. TheÂ distinctive Blackmagic Studio Camera has all the benefits of aÂ large studio camera because itâ€™s aÂ combination of camera and viewfinder all in aÂ single compact design. ItÂ features aÂ lightweight carbon fiber reinforced polycarbonate body with innovative technology in aÂ miniaturized design. TheÂ camera is designed for live production so itâ€™s easy to track and frame shots with its large 7" viewfinder. TheÂ touchscreen has menus for camera settings, and there's knobs for brightness, contrast and focus peaking. Plus aÂ tripod mount with mounting plate is included for fastÂ setup!
In advanced cameras, ISO is aÂ measurement of the image sensorâ€™s sensitivity to light. This means the higher the ISO the more gain can be added so itâ€™s possible to shoot in natural light, or even at night! TheÂ Blackmagic Studio Camera features gain from -12dB (100 ISO) up to +36dB (25,600 ISO) so it's optimized to reduce grain and noise in images, while maintaining the full dynamic range of the sensor. TheÂ primary native ISO is 400, which is ideal for use under studio lighting. Then the secondary high base ISO of 3200 is perfect when shooting in dimly lit environments. TheÂ gain can be set from the camera, or remotely from aÂ switcher using the SDI or Ethernet remote cameraÂ control.
Amazing sensors combined with Blackmagic generation 5Â color science give 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. TheÂ 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. Great for both HD and UltraÂ HD production, the 4K models feature aÂ resolution of 3840 xÂ 2160 and the 6K model has aÂ resolution of 6144 xÂ 3456. Plus, all models support 23.98 to 60Â fps.
With the popular EF or MFT lens mounts, Blackmagic Studio Cameras are compatible with aÂ 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! ToÂ eliminate the need to reach around to adjust the lens manually, the optional focus and zoom demands let you adjust the lens from the tripod handles just like aÂ 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! ItÂ gives you the same feel as an expensive B4 broadcastÂ lens!
The large 7" high resolution screen will totally transform how you work with the camera because it's big enough to make framing shots much easier. TheÂ Pro models feature an HDR display with extremely high brightness, perfect outdoors in sunlight! OnÂ screen overlays show status and record parameters, histogram, focus peaking indicators, levels, frame guides and more. YouÂ can even apply 3D LUTs for monitoring shots with the desired color and look. TheÂ touchscreen also has menus and you can load and customize presets for different jobs. TheÂ included sun shade can be folded to protect the screen for transport plus it's compatible with sun shades from the Blackmagic StudioÂ Viewfinder!
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. TheÂ focus peaking knob is incredibly useful as it lets you fine tune the detail highlight so you can get perfect focus as you zoom. TheÂ 3Â 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. TheÂ touchscreen also includes aÂ heads up display with the most important shooting information, as well as menus for all camera settings, LUTs and customÂ presets.
Blackmagic Studio Cameras feature aÂ very large tally light that illuminates red for onÂ air, green for preview and orange for ISO recording. The tally light also includes clip on transparent camera numbers, so it's easy for talent to see camera numbers from up to 20Â feetÂ away! The Blackmagic Studio Cameras support the SDI tally standard used on all ATEM live production switchers and the HDMI tally used on ATEM Mini switchers. This means that aÂ director can cut between cameras and the tally information will be sent back to the cameras via the SDI program return feed, lighting up the tally light on the camera whenever it's onÂ air. SDI tally eliminates complex wiring so job setup isÂ faster.
Unlike consumer cameras, the Blackmagic Studio CameraÂ 4K Pro G2 and 6K Pro models have SDI connections that include talkback so the switcher operator can communicate with cameras during live events. That means the director can talk to the camera operators to guide shot selection, eliminating the problem where all cameras could have the same shot, at the same time! TheÂ talkback connector is built into the side of the camera and supports standard 5Â pin XLR broadcast headsets. Talkback uses audio channels 15 and 16 in the SDI connection between the camera and the switcher, and in the program return from the switcher to the camera. This means any embedded SDI audio device can work withÂ talkback!
Blackmagic Studio cameras have lots of connections for connecting to both consumer and broadcast equipment. AllÂ models feature HDMI with tally, camera control and record trigger, so are perfect for ATEM Mini switchers! YouÂ also get headphone and mic connections, and 2Â USB-C expansion ports. TheÂ advanced Blackmagic Studio Camera Pro models are designed for broadcast workflows so have 12G-SDI, 10GBASE-T Ethernet, talkback and balanced XLR audio inputs. TheÂ 10G Ethernet allows all video, tally, talkback and camera power via aÂ single connection so setup is much faster! That's just like aÂ SMPTE fiber workflow, but using standard Category 6A copper Ethernet cable so it's much lowerÂ cost.
Blackmagic Studio Cameras can be connected in lots of different ways! AllÂ models feature HDMI so are perfect for HDMI switchers such as ATEM Mini. TheÂ HDMI supports video, tally, control and record trigger for aÂ broadcast style workflow using aÂ single HDMI cable. TheÂ Blackmagic Studio Camera Pro models have 12G-SDI so you can connect it to SDI based switchers such as the ATEM Constellation. There's aÂ 12G-SDI connection for camera video, and one for program return. TheÂ program return also includes tally, talkback and remote camera control. OrÂ you can use 10G Ethernet to get camera video, program return, tally, talkback, camera control and even power using aÂ regular Cat6A EthernetÂ cable!
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.
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.
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!
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!
