Unveiled: AJA CION 4K/UHD and 2K/HD Production Camera

Share

AJA entered the digital cinema camera market with the announcement of their CION 4K Production Camera, capable of recording both DCI and UHD 4K, as well as 2K and HD resolution video. From its sleek, elegant 6.4-lb magnesium body to the contoured suede shoulder pad, the camera is both aesthetically pleasing and ergonomically functional. But what's going on inside a camera is what really counts, and this is where the CION truly shines.

Please check back for pricing and availability

The CION features an APS-C sized 4K CMOS image sensor with an electronic global shutter, 12 stops of dynamic range, and a PL lens mount with manual back focus adjustment. AJA has built the camera’s internal recording around ProRes codecs. You can record video using ProRes 444 and 422 codecs at resolutions up to 4K (4096 x 2160) to AJA’s SSD-based Pak media cards. For raw workflows, the camera can output AJA Raw at up to 4K 120 fps via 3G-SDI out connectors, and up to 30 fps over Thunderbolt.

All interface controls are found on the side of the camera facing the operator for each single user operation. The video and audio output cables are also well positioned to not interfere with camera operation. Users will appreciate being able to monitor footage using the integrated LCD screen or external monitors using the HD-SDI and HDMI outputs, which are always active. Another useful feature is the addition of a LAN port, which can be used for remote control via a web browser, as well as ganging CION cameras together for multi-camera shoots.

With a well-thought-out ergonomic design, all flavors of ProRes available onboard, and raw video output, the CION is well positioned to take the industry by storm.

How well will this footage cut with the Sony NEX FS700 or the Canon 5D Mark lll All-1 footage? Will the Atomos Samuri Blade work as a monitor and will an EF Lens adapter be available at the time of this camcorder's release?

Until the camera is released it is hard to say how it will cut with other cameras footage. The Samurai Blade will work as an external monitor for it and you can use a PL to Canon adapter for Canon lenses.

Hi there. I note that in some images of the CION, it features with an ENG B4 lens attached, would this be powered through the camera via a Hirose servo connector, or will the Lens have to be powered externally to the battery, via a D-Tap ? Also, one would imagine that, it being a PL mount there would be no way to convey data from a B4 lens back to the camera body, unless utilizing a 3rd party adaptor.   Many thanks.  DJ.

The lens would need to get it's power through the powetap plug on the front of the Cion. The lens data to the camera is likely unavailable but more info should be out this summer.

is th e  view finder included in above picture of aja icon camera isa heinclution by aja or to pay extra money ,also the phicical dimention of cion-dr asok

The Viewfinder is not included with the Aja Cion.

Aja has not yet listed the dimensions of the camera.

The weight though is: 6.4 lbs / 2.9 kg (without top handle attached) and 7.4 lbs / 3.4 kg (with top handle attached)

i like to know more.....!

the only minus for me is the fact that there is no EF option fot this camera. its obviously better than the ursa in terms of its workability but flexibility is where it becomes an issue.... meaning it should be easy for me to but the body and use with my EF lenses... i shouldnt be strong armed into buying a whole new set of lenses... thats just the point... it would be nice to have the EF mount option or some addition that can allow the addition of the EF lens or any other lense to be used with it...

Price???

Thank you
