About Blackmagic Design Studio 4K

Featuring a massive 10" viewfinder, MFT lens mount, 4 hour battery, talkback, tally indicators, phantom powered microphone connections and built in optical fiber and SDI connections that let you connect to your switcher with a single cable! The advanced 4K model is switchable to 1080 HD, that means you can work in HD today and you're always ready for Ultra HD production.

Designed for Live Production
The super bright large bright viewfinder and compact size of the BlackMagic Design Studio Camera makes it perfect for talk shows, sitcoms and broadcast news in the studio, or even live concerts and sporting events. The incredible lightweight compact design, foldable sunshade and interchangeable lenses mean you can pack an entire multi camera live production rig into a single road case! Because it's so easy to setup and use, the BlackMagic Design Studio Camera is also perfect for corporate AV departments, houses of worship, schools and more!

Revolutionary Design
Features a compact and durable magnesium alloy body that is packed with innovative technology, making it the most rugged, portable and advanced studio camera in the world. You get a huge 10" viewfinder with sunshade for optimal viewing and control, a flexible MFT mount that gives you more lens options than any other studio camera, multiple mounting points and professional broadcast connections.

Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount
The BlackMagic Design Studio Camera features an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount that is compatible with an incredibly wide range of lenses and adapters. You can use your existing photo lenses for smaller setups or fixed camera use, or then bolt on incredible broadcast ENG lenses for large live broadcasts.

Large 10" Full HD Viewfinder
The massive 10" high resolution screen has a super wide viewing angle and the large viewing area lets you see amazing detail so you can frame, focus, change iris settings and make subtle adjustments, even when you're live on air.

Bi-Directional Optical Fiber
The optical fiber connection is bi-directional and carries HD video with embedded audio, talkback, tally and even camera remote control. And because it uses standard, low cost fiber optic cable, you can connect cameras over massive distances almost anywhere, even at the largest outdoor venues.

Built In Talkback
The BlackMagic Design Studio Camera features built in talkback so the camera operator and crew can communicate at all times during production. You get general aviation headset connections so you can choose from a wide range of aviation headsets, so you get better quality talkback headsets with better noise canceling and a much lower cost

Illuminated Tally
Tally lights illuminate automatically when your camera is live and will stay illuminated during multiple camera transitions. With a light on the front for talent and a light above the viewfinder for the operator, cast and crew can easily see which cameras are on air.

Broadcast Grade Connections
Featuring broadcast quality connections you get bi-directional optical fiber and SDI connections for connecting to live production switchers or recorders. Also included is a professional aviation headsets jack, stereo XLR microphone inputs and more. All connections are logically organized on the left and right sides of the camera, making them accessible and easy to use.

Integrated Control Panel
You can adjust iris and focus control with the touch of a button, activate talkback, or even see return video. Dedicated buttons let you switch between film and video modes, display safe area markers and turn on menu controls to change camera settings. The integrated push button control panel gives you complete camera control at the touch of a button!

Remote Camera Control
The BlackMagic Design Studio Camera can be remotely controlled from your ATEM live production switcher via the SDI connections for more professional production. The BlackMagic Design Studio camera also has a full DaVinci Resolve primary color corrector so you can color balance your cameras as well as add creativity to your live production.

Massive 4 Hour Battery
The BlackMagic Design Studio Camera might be small, but it includes a massive battery that will power the camera for over 4 hours! This means you can run a simple optical fiber tether to remote locations and the camera is fully powered and self contained with full talkback, tally and return program feed

External or Built in Microphones
For productions that require live location sound, you can use the built in stereo microphone or plug in professional external microphones, even with phantom power, into the camera's XLR connectors! This gives you fantastic quality live audio from your cameras and is super critical when covering live sports! Camera audio is automatically embedded with the video signal for connection to the ATEM live production switcher's built in audio mixer.

View Program Video
The BlackMagic Design Studio camera lets you view program video from your live production switcher at the press of a button! Simply press the camera's PGM button and the viewfinder will display the program video feed from your switcher, turning the viewfinder into a large SDI monitor!

Huge Range of Accessories
BlackMagic Design Studio Camera includes everything you need for live production all in a single self contained solution. However when you want to add large lenses, or smooth professional tripods then you can select from a massive range of third party accessories.

Ultra HD
Ultra HD is the broadcast standard of the future and 4K content is already being delivered to consumers today through web video channels like YouTube and Vimeo. New Ultra HD displays deliver a picture that has 4 times the resolution of 1080 HD, that's a massive 3840 x 2160 pixels!
