Overview

Overview

The Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4K - PL Mount features a Super 35 sensor with global shutter, precision PL mount, and high quality CinemaDNG RAW and Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) file recording.

The integrated touchscreen enables monitoring, direct settings adjustment and metadata entry. 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 large Super 35 sensor offers familiar framing and behavior from PL lenses and features a global shutter for smooth panning. With its minimal crop factor you can also achieve beautiful wide angle shots from appropriate lenses. If working in HD, you can reframe and zoom without any resolution loss, and downscaling from 4K to HD results in smooth and clean images.

With 12 stops of dynamic range, captured in ProRes or CinemaDNG files at 4K resolution, images retain a beautiful film look. The greater detail captured by the sensor results in more flexible creative options during DaVinci Resolve color grading.

Featuring 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 makes data migration to your computer for editing or color correction extremely simple. Disks can be formatted in either HFS+ or exFAT for Mac and Windows compatibility.

With integrated, uncompressed audio recording, one can capture professional audio to ProRes files and eliminate audio syncing during post production.

The Production Camera 4K uses standard connections, eliminating the need to source custom cables.  It includes a 6G-SDI connection for Ultra HD resolution or downconverted HD output over a single SDI cable. The built-in Thunderbolt connection enables use of a laptop computer and the included UltraScope software for real time waveform monitoring. There are 1/4” jack mic/line inputs for recording the highest quality uncompressed audio, a 12-30V DC input, 3.5mm headphone input socket, and LANC remote control.
