Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Pro
Add a powerful studio camera to your 4K broadcast with the Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Pro. This 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.
