Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 6K Pro
Studio camera with 6K Super 35 sensor and EF lens mount, built in ND filters, built in streaming, 12G'SDI, HDMI, and 10G Ethernet
The ultimate self contained live production camera!
Introducing the world?s most advanced self contained studio camera! Blackmagic Studio Cameras have the same features as large studio cameras, miniaturized into a single compact and portable design. 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 up to 25,600 so you can create amazing images even in dimly lit venues. It even works under moonlight! Advanced features include 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!
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.
Revolutionary Studio Camera Design
Large broadcasters use expensive studio cameras that are extremely large, so they?re not very portable. The distinctive Blackmagic Studio Camera has all the benefits of a large studio camera because it?s a combination of camera and viewfinder all in a single compact design. It features a lightweight carbon fiber reinforced polycarbonate body with innovative technology in a miniaturized design. The camera is designed for live production so it?s easy to track and frame shots with its large 7" viewfinder. The touchscreen has menus for camera settings, and there's knobs for brightness, contrast and focus peaking. Plus a tripod mount with mounting plate is included for fast setup!
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. The gain can be set from the camera, or remotely from a switcher using the SDI or Ethernet remote camera control.
Get Cinematic Images in Live Production!
Amazing sensors combined with Blackmagic generation 5 color science give you the same imaging technology used in digital film cameras. That means you can now use cinematic images for live production! Plus, when combined with the built in DaVinci Resolve primary color corrector you get much better images than simple broadcast cameras. The color corrector can even be controlled from the switcher. With 13 stops of dynamic range, the camera has darker blacks and brighter whites, perfect for color correction. Great for both HD and Ultra HD production, the 4K models feature a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and the 6K model has a resolution of 6144 x 3456. Plus, all models support 23.98 to 60 fps.
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 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!
Designed as the ultimate studio camera, Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro adds a larger 6K Super 35 sensor and EF lens mount for true cinematic images in live production. There are built in ND filters that let you reduce the amount of light entering the camera, allowing you to work in a wider range of situations, including in bright sunlight. Plus stream direct to the internet with built in streaming! You also get 12G'SDI, HDMI and 10G Ethernet which allows all connections on a single cable for a SMPTE style workflow that's much lower cost.
