Portable, lightweight and suitable for outdoor and indoor live production

A built in fiber optic connection, allows you to use a single thin tether cable to connect cameras to live production switchers. The optical fiber connection is bi-directional and carries HD or Ultra 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 large outdoor venues.

Active Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens mount

The Blackmagic Design 4K Studio Camera features an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount so you can use high optical quality photographic lenses. MFT lenses includes wide angle, primes, standard zooms and large telephotos to enable the camera to shoot a wide variety of subjects.

Massive 10 Full HD Viewfinder

The massive 10 inch viewfinder features a high resolution of 1080p and displays amazing detail enabling you to frame, focus, change settings, and make subtle adjustments, even when youre live on air.

Built In Talkback

The Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K features built in talkback enabling constant communication between the crew. Aviation headset connections allows you to choose from a wide range of high quality aviation headsets. Setup is effortless because talkback is embedded in the optical or SDI video connection to the camera, so you dont have to run separate talkback cables

Illuminated Tally

The Blackmagic Studio camera 4K supports the tally SDI standard used on the ATEM range of live production switchers. This means the tally from the switcher is broadcast to all cameras from all video outputs of the ATEM switcher and its sent to the Blackmagic Studio Camera via the program video connection. 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.

Integrated Control Panel

The viewfinder features an integrated control panel enabling quick and easy access the most important controls. You can adjust iris and focus control with the touch of a button, activate talkback, or even see return video.
