Designed for professional SDI switchers, the Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Pro G2 offers live streaming plus pro connections like 12G-SDI and 10GbE Ethernet. You get the features of the Studio Camera Plus model, as well as 12G-SDI, XLR audio, bright HDR LCD, talkback, 10G Ethernet IP link, and HD live streaming. This latest 4K Pro model has also the same features as large studio cameras, miniaturized into a single compact and portable design.

The Studio Camera 4K Pro G2 has advanced features including talkback, tally, camera control, built-in color corrector, Blackmagic RAW recording to USB disks, live streaming, and more! You can even add a focus and zoom demand for lens control! Plus with digital film camera dynamic range and color science, the cameras can handle extremely difficult lighting conditions while producing cinematic-looking images. The sensor features an ISO of up to 25,600 so you can create amazing images even in dimly lit venues. It even works under the moonlight!

DESIGNED FOR LIVE PRODUCTION

  • While Blackmagic Studio Camera is designed for live production, it’s not limited to use with a live switcher! That’s because it records Blackmagic RAW to USB disks, so it can be used in any situation where you use a tripod! The large 7" viewfinder makes it perfect for work such as chat shows, television production, broadcast news, sports, education, conference presentations, and even weddings! The 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 it’s so lightweight, it’s perfect when you're constantly changing locations and doing different kinds of work.

EXCEPTIONAL LOW-LIGHT PERFORMANCE

  • In advanced cameras, ISO is a measurement of the image sensor’s sensitivity to light. This means the higher the ISO the more gain can be added so it’s possible to shoot in natural light, or even at night! The 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. The 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.

AFFORDABLE PHOTOGRAPHIC LENSES!

  • With the popular EF or MFT lens mounts, Blackmagic Studio Cameras are compatible with a wide range of affordable photographic lenses. Photographic lenses are of incredible quality because they're designed for use in high-resolution photography. Plus, the active lens mount lets you adjust the lens remotely! To 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 a 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! It gives you the same feel as an expensive B4 broadcast lens!

FRAME SHOTS WITH A LARGE 7" VIEWFINDER

  • 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. The Pro models feature an HDR display with extremely high brightness, perfect outdoors in the sunlight! On-screen overlays show status and record parameters, histograms, focus peaking indicators, levels, frame guides, and more. You can even apply 3D LUTs for monitoring shots with the desired color and look. The touchscreen also has menus and you can load and customize presets for different jobs. The included sun shade can be folded to protect the screen for transport plus it's compatible with sun shades from the Blackmagic Studio Viewfinder!

BUILT-IN TALLY FOR ON-AIR STATUS 

  • Blackmagic Studio Cameras feature a very large tally light that illuminates red for on-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 20 feet 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 a 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 on air. SDI tally eliminates complex wiring so job setup is faster.

COMMUNICATE WITH THE DIRECTOR VIA TALKBACK

  • Unlike consumer cameras, the Blackmagic Studio Camera 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! The talkback connector is built into the side of the camera and supports standard 5-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 with talkback!

POWERFUL BROADCAST CONNECTIONS

  • Blackmagic Studio cameras have lots of connections for connecting to both consumer and broadcast equipment. All models feature HDMI with tally, camera control, and record trigger, so are perfect for ATEM Mini switchers! You also get headphone and mic connections, and 2 USB-C expansion ports. The advanced Blackmagic Studio Camera Pro models are designed for broadcast workflows so have 12G-SDI, 10GBASE-T Ethernet, talkback, and balanced XLR audio inputs. The 10G Ethernet allows all video, tally, talkback, and camera power via a single connection so setup is much faster!

FOUR WAYS TO CONNECT

  • Connect via HDMI - 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.
  • Connect via SDI - 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 are also sent to the camera via the SDI program return.
  • Connect via Ethernet - 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!
  • Connect via USB Disk - 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!

USB EXPANSION PORT FOR ACCESSORIES

  • The Blackmagic Studio Camera features a high-speed USB-C expansion port that allows you to record to external disks or connect to a wide range of accessories. Plug in an external USB flash disk and the camera can record high-quality 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files for later editing and color correction. That means you can just move the disk to a computer to work, and you don't need to waste time with file copying. You can even plug in optional focus and zoom demands to allow full lens control. Plus the USB port will power any phone or disk that’s plugged in!

BLACKMAGIC RAW QUALITY

  • A revolutionary new format designed to capture and preserve the quality of the sensor data from your camera. Some file formats such as H.264 are highly compressed, so add noise and artifacts, causing sensor detail to be lost forever. Blackmagic RAW eliminates this problem so you get stunning images with incredible detail and rich color throughout the whole post-production pipeline. Blackmagic RAW also saves camera settings as metadata so you can change ISO, white balance, and exposure later in DaVinci Resolve. Plus the files are small and fast, so editing responsiveness is incredible. Only Blackmagic RAW gives you the highest quality, smallest files, and fastest performance!

INCLUDES BUILT-IN MICROPHONES

  • Blackmagic Studio Cameras include built-in microphones so you get sound included in the design making setup much faster. Plus the built-in microphones are shock and wind resistant, so you get great sound even in tough conditions! With each microphone placed at the edges of the screen, you get the advantage of the studio camera design for better stereo separation than what is possible on a regular video camera. There’s also a 3.5mm audio input for connecting video camera microphones as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.

BUILT-IN ND FILTERS

  • Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro features high quality, remote controllable ND filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. Designed to match the colorimetry and color science of the camera, the 2, 4, and 6-stop filters give you additional latitude even under harsh lighting. The filters are designed to filter both optical and IR wavelengths evenly, eliminating IR contamination of the images. The ND filters can be electronically controlled by the function buttons on the back of the camera, using buttons on the demand and remotely. Because they can be controlled remotely by the camera control operator, the camera operator is free to focus on getting the perfect shot!

POWERED BY BLACKMAGIC OS

  • With the advanced Blackmagic OS, you get an intuitive and user-friendly camera operating system based on the latest technology. Blackmagic OS is a truly modern operating system where all camera features run independently for smoother control, plus the camera powers on virtually instantly. It features the same controls and menus as other Blackmagic Design cameras so you can move between cameras on set easily. The interface uses simple taps and swipe gestures to adjust settings, add metadata, and view the recording status. You also get full control over advanced camera features such as on-screen focus and exposure tools, 3D LUTs, HDR, metadata entry, timecode, Blackmagic RAW settings, and more!

SUPPORTS 3D LUTS FOR FIL LOOKS!

  • When Blackmagic RAW files use logarithmic film gamma to preserve the camera dynamic range, 3D LUTs can be used to convert the images on the viewfinder display from looking flat and washed out. 3D LUTs solve this problem because they convert the image just before it's displayed on the LCD. This allows the film gamma images being recorded to be converted to nicer-looking images on the LCD. 3D LUTs are also saved into the Blackmagic RAW files so they can be used in later post-production, but they are never burned into the Blackmagic RAW image data, so you always have the option to disable them. This means the 3D LUT is transported in the Blackmagic RAW file, but only used when you enable it.

LOCALIZED IN 13 POPULAR LANGUAGES! 

  • The Blackmagic Studio Cameras are designed to be used worldwide so they support 13 popular languages! When setting up your camera, you can choose to work in English, German, French, Spanish, Polish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Turkish, Ukrainian, Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. It’s easy to switch to another language simply by going into the menu settings. When switching between languages, all the on-screen overlays, heads-up displays, and setup menus will be displayed in the selected language and you can change languages any time you like!

POWERS FROM DC OR 10G ETHERNET

  • Blackmagic Studio Cameras have lots of different power options! All models have a common 12V DC locking power connector so the cable won't be accidentally pulled out. Plus, the camera includes a power supply with 5 different AC socket adapters for different countries. However, if you're using a single Ethernet cable to connect to the Blackmagic Studio Camera Pro models, then the whole camera and its accessories can be powered from the Ethernet connection. The Blackmagic Studio Converter has a large power supply that adds PoE power to the Ethernet cable so you don't need any power connection to the camera. That’s a great solution when there's no power available where the cameras are placed!

BLACKMAGIC STUDIO CONVERTER

  • With 10G Ethernet on the Pro models, you can connect all signals to the camera with one Ethernet IP link connection. That means the camera feed, return program feed, timecode, reference, tally, talkback, and control are all sent down the single cable. That's the same benefits of SMPTE fiber, but the standard 10G copper Ethernet cable is much lower cost. The Blackmagic Studio Converter allows the breakout of all the video, audio, and talkback connections at the studio end. It also includes a massive power supply that powers the camera down the Ethernet cable, so you don't need a power source near the camera. Plus you can fit 2 per rack unit using a Blackmagic Universal Rack Shelf!
