The Production Camera 4K features a large Super 35 size sensor with professional global shutter combined with precision EF mount optics, high quality visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) file recording for a complete self-contained solution. The built in touchscreen lets you monitor, change settings and enter metadata directly on the camera. 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.

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

The EF compatible lens mount means you can choose high quality optics that are designed to take advantage of the large Super 35 size sensor with minimal cropping. You get full electronic control using lenses from Canon, Zeiss and more.

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 resolution, so images retain a beautiful film look. By capturing more detail from the sensor you can make creative decisions during DaVinci Resolve color grading. You can really push the shadows or highlights in either direction and preserve fine details in the image

With a built-in SSD recorder, the Production Camera 4K easily captures 4K in ProRes 422 (HQ) and compressed CinemaDNG files.  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.

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.

The camera uses standard connections, so you never need to source custom cables.  It includes a 6G-SDI connection for Ultra HD resolution or down converted HD output over a single SDI cable. The built-in Thunderbolt connection lets you plug into a laptop computer and use the included UltraScope software for real time waveform monitoring. There are 1/4” jack mic/line inputs for recording the highest quality uncompressed audio, plus a 12V to 30V DC input, a 3.5mm headphone input socket and LANC remote control.
