  • Ultra HD
  • 10" LCD "Viewfinder"


The Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K - MFT Mount features a compact and durable magnesium alloy body that is packed with innovative technology, making it a rugged, portable and advanced studio camera. The Studio Camera 4K features a 10” viewfinder with sunshade for optimal viewing and control, a flexible MFT mount to provide more lens options, and multiple mounting points and professional broadcast connections.

Ultra HD is the broadcast standard of the future and 4K content is already being delivered to consumers today through web video channels like YouTube and Vimeo. New Ultra HD displays deliver a picture that has 4x the resolution of 1080 HD (3840 x 2160 pixels). From the newsroom to live sporting and theatrical events, there’s no faster way to capture the beauty and realism of Ultra HD 4K than to record a live switched program with Blackmagic Studio Cameras.

The Blackmagic Studio Camera features an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount that is compatible with an incredibly wide range of lenses and adapters. You can use your existing photo lenses for smaller setups or fixed camera use, or then bolt on incredible broadcast ENG lenses for large live broadcasts. Third party lens adapters let you connect to all kinds of lens mounts for any type of lens you choose, and you can even add feature film PL mount lenses, allowing you to customize your camera to suit any size production!

10" Full HD LCD "Viewfinder"

The Blackmagic Studio Camera includes the world's largest integrated viewfinder. The massive 10" high resolution screen has a super wide viewing angle and the large viewing area offers amazing detail so you can frame, focus, change iris settings, and make subtle adjustments, even when you’re live.

Bi-Directional Optical Fiber

The Blackmagic Studio Camera includes a user-upgradable fiber optic connection, allowing you to use a single, thin tether cable to connect cameras to your 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 the largest outdoor venues.

Integrated Talkback

The Blackmagic Studio Camera features integrated talkback so the camera operator and crew can communicate at all times during production. General aviation headset connections allow you to choose from a wide range of headsets, so you get better quality talkback headsets with better noise canceling and a much lower cost. Setup is easy as talkback is embedded in the optical or SDI video connection to the camera, so you don’t have to run separate talkback cables.

Illuminated Tally

The Blackmagic Studio camera 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 is 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.

Broadcast Grade Connections

Featuring broadcast quality connections, including bi-directional optical fiber and SDI connections for connecting to live production switchers or recorders. Also included is a professional aviation headset jack, stereo XLR microphone inputs, and more. All connections are logically organized on the left and right sides of the camera, making them accessible and easy to use. As the Blackmagic Studio Camera uses standard connectors, you don’t need expensive custom cables.

Integrated Control Panel

Quickly and easily access the most important controls using the built-in row of buttons below the viewfinder. You can adjust iris and focus control with the touch of a button, activate talkback, or even view return video. Dedicated buttons let you switch between film and video modes, display safe area markers, and turn on menu controls to change camera settings.

Remote Camera Control

Now you can remote control your camera from your ATEM live production switcher via the SDI connections for a more professional production configuration. The Blackmagic Studio camera also has a full DaVinci Resolve primary color corrector so you can color balance your cameras as well as add creativity to your live production. All settings in the camera can be controlled including color, full lens control, camera settings and more, all remotely from the live production switcher (sold separately).

External or Integrated Microphones

For productions that require live location sound, you can use the built-in stereo microphone or plug in professional external microphones, even with phantom power, into the camera’s XLR connectors. This enables high quality live audio from your cameras and is critical when covering live sports. Camera audio is automatically embedded with the video signal for connection to the ATEM live production switcher’s built in audio mixer.

View Program Video

The Blackmagic Studio camera lets you view program video from your live production switcher at the press of a button. Simply press the camera’s PGM button and the viewfinder will display the program video feed from your switcher, turning the viewfinder into a large SDI monitor. You can even use the program SDI input to view playback from a local HyperDeck recorder when using the Blackmagic Studio Camera for recording.

Wide Range of Accessories

Blackmagic Studio Camera includes everything you need for live production all in a single, self-contained solution. However, when you want to add large lenses, or professional tripods, you can select from a massive range of third party accessories. With industry standard connectors, interchangeable lenses, and multiple mounting points, you can customize the camera for any type of production using a virtually limitless selection of third party accessories.
