Premium Quality

Compact solid metal design

The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K is precision engineered for quality in an incredibly small size. You get a beautifully crafted design featuring a machined aluminum chassis, EF lens mount for interchangeable optics, high resolution 4K Super 35 size sensor, global shutter, visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes 422 (HQ) file format. With built in uncompressed audio recording you can record professional audio straight to the ProRes files and totally eliminate separate audio syncing during post production.

 

Sensor

Large Super 35 Sensor

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 and with minimal crop factor you also get beautiful wide angle shots from your wide angle lenses. If you're working in HD you'll love the freedom to reframe and zoom into shots without any resolution loss, and when down scaling from 4K to HD you get incredibly smooth and clean images.

 

Lenses

EF Compatible Lens Mount Supports the world's best lenses

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 the world's most amazing optics from leading lens crafters like Canon, Zeiss and more, with full electronic control!

 

Ssd -recorder

Super Fast SSD Recorder

Capture 4K ProRes directly
to a removable SSD!

With a built in SSD recorder, Blackmagic Production Camera 4K easily captures 4K in ProRes 422 (HQ) and compressed CinemaDNG files. You get a 4K camera designed from the ground up to be part of your post production workflow! Capturing to a removable SSD means that once you’ve finished shooting you can simply connect the SSD to your computer and edit or color correct your shots straight from the disk! Disks can be formatted in either HFS+ or exFAT for Mac and Windows compatibility.

Open File Formats Standard files for your NLE

Unlike traditional cameras that record obscure file formats that take time to convert before you can start post production, the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K records directly to files that are compatible with your editing software. The wide dynamic range of the Super 35 size sensor can be mapped into the quantizing range of the file, so you can color grade shots with greater detail in highlights and shadows. If you're working fast, simply select 'Video' and shoot in regular REC709 color space.

 

Beautiful

Beautifully Crafted Design

Machined from solid aluminum for strength and beauty

Blackmagic Production Camera 4K has been designed with portability and durability in mind. With standard connections and an internal battery inside a beautiful machined aluminum design, you can be confident that the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K will easily handle the rigors of location work! A high resolution LCD display shows settings such as shutter speed, color temperature, aperture and timecode in an easy to read status strip.

 

Touchscreen

Easy to Use Touchscreen

Enter metadata on the camera

Use the capacitive touchscreen to access menus to 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. Managing your files in post production is now much simpler!

 

Dynamic Range

Higher image quality means even more grading power

With 12 stops of dynamic range you get amazing looking images beyond those of regular
video cameras or even the highest end broadcast cameras. All this dynamic range is captured
into ProRes or CinemaDNG files at 4K resolutions so images retain a beautiful film look. By
capturing more detail from the sensor you can make creative decisions during DaVinci Resolve
colour grading! You can really push the shadows or highlights in either direction and preserve fine
details in the image!
