Add a powerful studio camera to your 4K broadcast with the Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Pro. This updated compact and lightweight broadcast camera is designed for live production and provides a variety of options to record and broadcast your video. New features added to the Studio model include a lighter carbon fiber body, up to 25,600 ISO, 13 stops of dynamic range, a bigger tally light, HDMI output with camera control, 12G-SDI input and output, talkback within SDI, two USB Type-C ports for recording and control, a standard 5-pin broadcast headset jack, a speaker, built-in dual microphones, a 7" HDR LCD, a redesigned sun hood, and 10G Ethernet.

The camera offers UHD resolutions at frame rates up to 3840 x 2160p60. It is light for frequent travel, setup, and breakdown, yet durable for use in the field. It has a bright 7" capacitive touchscreen display that allows you to control all the settings right from the screen, and it features a 1920 x 1200 resolution, high-brightness HDR support for use in sunlight, and it has a detachable sun hood that was redesigned to fold down over the display for storage and protection. There are brightness, contrast, iris, and focus peaking control knobs on the sides of the display, and you can also program the F1-3 buttons on the side. The camera also features DaVinci Resolve built-in, so you can control the camera's color and brightness settings right from a computer when it's paired with a compatible ATEM switcher.

The Studio 4K Pro also provides features you'd expect to find in larger studio cameras, such as a large tally indicator with customizable number decals, talkback, a 5-pin broadcast headset plug, dual XLR audio input with phantom power, and 12G-SDI inputs/outputs. This camera also features HDMI output, and its new 10G Ethernet is an enormous pipe to use when broadcasting 4K video. You can even unplug all the HDMI and SDI cabling and utilize the 10G Ethernet to send all the video and data to a companion converter or switcher, which can even provide PoE to the camera, so you only need one cable. Its Micro Four Thirds lens mount allows you to utilize a wide range of professional photography lenses, and you can also control the lens remotely, broadcast style, with the optional Zoom Demand and Focus Demand lens controllers.

To power the camera, you can use PoE with a compatible switcher or the separately available Blackmagic Studio Converter, or you can use the included DC power adapter with a locking plug. It also has a standard 4-pin XLR power input for external sources to provide redundant power.

Compact and Lightweight 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 are knobs for brightness, contrast, and focus peaking. Plus, a tripod mount with 15mm LWS rod ports and 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 -12 dB (100 ISO) up to +36 dB (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. 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.
Cinematic Images in Live Production
The amazing 4K sensor combined with Blackmagic generation 5 color science gives 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. The sensor features a resolution of 4096 x 2160, which is great for both HD and Ultra HD work. Plus, all models support from 23.98 up to 60 fps.
Affordable Photographic Lenses
With the popular MFT lens mount, 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 zoom and focus, 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.
Frame Shots with Large 7" Viewfinder
The large 7" high-resolution screen will totally transform how you work with the camera because it's big enough to make framing shots much easier. The Pro model features an HDR display with extremely high brightness, perfect outdoors in sunlight. On-screen overlays show status and record parameters, histogram, focus peaking indicators, levels, frame guides, and more. You can even apply 3D LUTs for monitoring shots with the desired color and look. The touchscreen also has menus, and you can load and customize presets for different jobs. The included sunshade can be folded to protect the screen for transport, plus it's compatible with sunshades from the Blackmagic Studio Viewfinder.
Physical and Touchscreen Controls
Blackmagic Studio Cameras feature physical buttons and knobs, as well as controls on the touchscreen. Knobs on the right side of the camera allow adjusting of the brightness, contrast, and focus peaking. The focus peaking knob is incredibly useful as it lets you fine-tune the detail highlight, so you can get perfect focus as you zoom. The three function buttons on the left can have functions assigned to them, such as zebra, false color, focus peaking, LUTs, and more. Plus, you can change the function assigned to each button in the menus. The touchscreen also includes a heads-up display with the most important shooting information, as well as menus for all camera settings, LUTs, and custom presets.
Built-In Tally for On-Air Status
Blackmagic Studio Cameras feature a very large tally light that illuminates red for on-air, green for preview, and orange for ISO recording. The tally light also includes clip-on transparent camera numbers, so it's easy for talent to see camera numbers from up to 20' away. The Blackmagic Studio cameras support the SDI tally standard used on all ATEM live production switchers and the HDMI tally used on ATEM Mini switchers. This means a director can cut between cameras and the tally information will be sent back to the cameras via the SDI program return feed, lighting up the tally light on the camera whenever it's on air. SDI tally eliminates complex wiring, so job setup is faster.
Communicate with the Director via Talkback
Unlike consumer cameras, the Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro model has SDI connections that include talkback, so the switcher operator can communicate with cameras during live events. That means the director can talk to the camera operators to guide shot selection, eliminating the problem where all cameras could have the same shot at the same time. The talkback connector is built into the side of the camera and supports standard 5-pin XLR broadcast headsets. Talkback uses audio channels 15 and 16 in the SDI connection between the camera and the switcher, and in the program return from the switcher to the camera. This means any embedded SDI audio device can work with talkback.
Powerful Broadcast Connections
Blackmagic Studio cameras have lots of connections for connecting to both consumer and broadcast equipment. All models feature HDMI with tally, camera control, and record trigger, so are perfect for ATEM Mini switchers. You also get headphone and mic connections and two USB Type-C expansion ports. The advanced Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro model is designed for broadcast workflows, so it has 12G-SDI, 10G-Base-T Ethernet, talkback, and balanced XLR audio inputs. The 10G Ethernet allows all video, tally, talkback, and camera power via a single connection, so setup is much faster. That's just like a SMPTE fiber workflow, but using standard Category 6A copper Ethernet cable, so it's much lower cost.
Four Ways to Connect
Blackmagic Studio Cameras can be connected in lots of different ways. All models feature HDMI so are perfect for HDMI switchers such as the ATEM Mini. The HDMI supports video, tally, control, and record trigger for a broadcast-style workflow using a single HDMI cable. The Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro has 12G-SDI, so you can connect it to SDI-based switchers such as the ATEM Constellation. There's a 12G-SDI connection for camera video, and one for program return. The program return also includes tally, talkback, and remote camera control. Or you can use 10G Ethernet to get camera video, program return, tally, talkback, camera control, and even power using a regular Cat 6a Ethernet cable.
Get Low-Cost Camera Control via SDI
All Blackmagic Design ATEM switchers can control cameras via a protocol embedded into the camera's SDI video connections. Setup is easy because all ATEM switchers broadcast control commands from the switcher's SDI program output to the camera via the SDI program input. The switcher can perform color correction, tally, and lens control, and these are sent to all cameras. All you need to do is select the correct camera number and it all works. Even ATEM Mini switchers can control Blackmagic Studio Cameras because the HDMI output to the switcher has return data communication that can send control information back to the camera. All this means is that the camera operator is free to focus on framing shots.
Low-Cost SMPTE Fiber Style Workflow
The Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro model supports connecting cameras via a single Ethernet cable. It's so simple; just plug it in and you're ready. Traditional broadcast studio cameras use SMPTE fiber to communicate and power cameras; however, SMPTE fiber is very expensive. Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro model has 10G Ethernet as an alternative to SMPTE fiber, so it's much lower cost. The Ethernet includes all camera video, program return feeds, tally, talkback, camera control, and power. The Blackmagic Studio Converter handles all video conversions at the switcher end plus adds power to the Ethernet cable. That means you don't need to connect power to the camera.
USB Expansion Port for Accessories
The Blackmagic Studio Camera features a high-speed USB Type-C expansion port that allows you to record to external disks or connect to a wide range of accessories. Plug in an external USB flash disk and the camera can record high-quality 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files for later editing and color correction. That means you can just move the disk to a computer to work, and you don't need to waste time with file copying. You can even plug in optional focus and zoom demands to allow full lens control. Plus, the USB port will power any phone or disk that's plugged in.
Blackmagic RAW Quality
Blackmagic RAW is a revolutionary new format designed to capture and preserve the quality of the sensor data from your camera. Some file formats such as H.264 are highly compressed and add noise and artifacts, causing sensor detail to be lost forever. Blackmagic RAW eliminates this problem, so you get stunning images with incredible detail and rich color throughout the whole post-production pipeline. Blackmagic RAW also saves camera settings as metadata, so you can change ISO, white balance, and exposure later in DaVinci Resolve. Plus, the files are small and fast, so editing responsiveness is incredible. Only Blackmagic RAW gives you the highest quality, smallest files, and fastest performance.
Includes Built-in Microphones
Blackmagic Studio Cameras include built-in microphones, so you get sound included in the design, making setup much faster. Plus, the built-in microphones are shock and wind resistant, so you get great sound even in tough conditions. With each microphone placed at the edges of the screen, you get the advantage of the studio camera design for better stereo separation than what is possible on a regular video camera. There's also a 3.5mm audio input for connecting video camera microphones, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. On the Blackmagic Studio Camera Pro model, you get professional XLR audio inputs and a built-in speaker for listening to the program return audio.
Monitor Program Video
The Blackmagic Studio Camera lets you view program video from the switcher at the press of a button. Simply press the camera's PGM button, and the viewfinder will switch from the camera display to the program return feed from the switcher. Plus, the built-in speaker lets you monitor the switcher audio. Program return is a fantastic feature as sometimes on large live shows, camera operators can be left waiting a long time for their camera to be used, so program return lets them watch the show while they wait. This means that even if the camera operator is a large distance away from the switcher, they can still keep up with what's happening and remain alert.
Powered by Blackmagic OS
With the advanced Blackmagic OS, you get an intuitive and user-friendly camera operating system based on the latest technology. Blackmagic OS is a true modern operating system where all camera features run independently for smoother control, plus the camera powers on virtually instantly. It features the same controls and menus as other Blackmagic Design cameras, so you can move between cameras on set easily. The interface uses simple tap and swipe gestures to adjust settings, add metadata, and view recording status. You also get full control over advanced camera features such as on-screen focus and exposure tools, 3D LUTs, HDR, metadata entry, timecode, Blackmagic RAW settings, and more.
Supports 3D LUTs for Film Looks
When Blackmagic RAW files use logarithmic film gamma to preserve the camera dynamic range, 3D LUTs can be used to convert the images on the viewfinder display from looking flat and washed out. The 3D LUTs solve this problem because they convert the image just before it's displayed on the LCD. This allows the film gamma images being recorded to be converted to nicer-looking images on the LCD. The 3D LUTs are also saved into the Blackmagic RAW files, so they can be used in later post-production, but they are never burned into the Blackmagic RAW image data, so you always have the option to disable them. This means the 3D LUT is transported in the Blackmagic RAW file, but only used when you enable it.
Localized in 11 Popular Languages
The Blackmagic Studio Cameras are designed to be used worldwide so they support 11 popular languages. When setting up your camera, you can choose to work in English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Turkish, Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. It's easy to switch to another language simply by going into the menu settings. When switching between languages, the on-screen overlays, heads-up display, and setup menus will be displayed in the selected language, and you can change languages any time you like.
Powers from DC or 10G Ethernet
Blackmagic Studio Cameras have lots of different power options. All models have a common 12 VDC locking power connector, so the cable won't be accidentally pulled out. Plus, the camera includes a power supply with five different AC socket adapters for different countries. However, if you're using a single Ethernet cable to connect to the Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro model, then the whole camera and its accessories can be powered from the Ethernet connection. The Blackmagic Studio Converter has a large power supply that adds PoE power to the Ethernet cable, so you don't need any power connection to the camera. That's a great solution when there's no power available where the cameras are placed.
Optional Accessories
You can utilize the Focus and Zoom demands to remotely control your lens and the Blackmagic Studio Converter for a single Ethernet connection to the camera.

Hello Kevin, would you sell your 3 cameras???

Poor Choice for us, maybe not for others.

By kevin

Date: 2022-02-11

Our school's TV Studio purchased 3 of these, plus 3 focus/zoom demands, plus 3 Tamron MFT lenses, which B&H have listed in the accessories, but not on Blackmagic list of recommended lenses. Cannot zoom with the Zoom Demand. Tally light is hidden because of teleprompter hood. And, after reading several of the questions and reviews, the tally light will not work with our Roland switcher, which we already had. Only the ATEM. The manual is helpful, but the zoom will not operate. That's the main drawback for us.

Maybe remove design from your company name? The tally lights are hidden if you have a teleprompter on this thing. If you want a servo lens, good luck.

The best camera for church (livestream and braw interviews)

By Daniel
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-18

We have been using M43 GH5 & GH5s and BMPCC4K to live stream church service with good results...but the tiny screen, lack of XLR audio (having to use adapter), awkward menu etc. from the GH series made it less than ideal. Was blown away by how well engineered the BM Studio Pro camera is. The the BEAUTIFUL 7 HDR screen with BM's simple menu structure is perfect for volunteers and will result in less mistakes. The low noise floor XLR audio has a lots of latitude and is superb. The ability to control the camera via HDMI from the ATEM mini & (free) software is so nice! The tally light, ethernet/SDI (if you need it) screw down power connector (no accidental disconnect) and other features are unheard of for this price. Perhaps best of all, is the 12 bit BRAW goodness with the press of a button. Connect a cheap SSD via USB-C and you can record 12 bit raw video and 24 bit high qaulity audio while your live-streaming. Perfect for music specials or other high value parts of a service. Can use the camera to capture interviews, again in 12 bit raw/24 bit audio and edit in the fantastic Davinci Resolve. I am one happy customer!!! This is a nice piece of equipment. Don't listen to the whiners about the screen get's hot etc. For church livestreams with low skill volunteers and high quality interviews etc. this camera is unparalleled.

New to mid-range Studio Cameras

By Joe
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-28

This is my first exposure to a mid-range Studio camera and I'll post some updates later, but I wanted to give some first impressions. I've used cameras such as the Canon XA35 and that class. I'm very impressed with the screen and screen options. I have a hard time sometimes in bright light and it looks like it'll make things a lot easier to view outdoors. I do either event or active sports and it looks good for both. I bought the zoom and focus demands, but you really need to research the lenses as the demands won't work with most other lenses even though B&H has a recommended lens. The recommended lens doesn't work with the demands and are the same price as working lenses. Blackmagic has a small list of lenses that are supposed to work with both. I bought one and it works great. I have a Manfrotto 503 head and quality manfrotto tripod, but it was too heavy in the back with the handles and demands, so I'll upgrade to the new manfrotto heads Manfrotto 608 Nitrotech. Currently I have to lock the head vertically which limits action shots. The camera zoom and focus demands did not work initially with the software that was installed on the camera. I did a software upgrade and they work flawlessly. My next step is to tie into my Blackmagic video switchers and 4K capture and see how it goes. I am a writer so sorry for the verbiage, but I hope it saved some hours for others. I'll do further reviews as I experience the camera, but I'm very impressed, especially with the price.

Intercom is half baked

By Jake
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-28

The camera seems to work fine. I've spent way too much time sorting out the built in intercom side of things. You have two options; 3.5mm TRRS, and 5-pin XLR. Having built intercom systems before I assumed the 5-Pin XLR was going to be the easy route. The manual says it will output bias voltage on pins 1&2 for an electret microphone. I've not found this to be the case. I've tried two cameras and numerous electret microphones and I've not measured any voltage on pins 1&2. A lot of frustrations here. The headset that was purchased for this project used dual 3.5mm TRS plugs so an adapter was needed to combine them down to the 3.5mm TRRS jack. That worked fine, but I've had a lot of 3.5mm plugs snap off (I deal with students and faculty that are rough on equipment). I was able to get the 5-pin jack to work if bias voltage is inserted external of the camera and I was able to get it to work with a dynamic mic so it's not a complete show stopper, but it does make it much harder to get to work. Blackmagic tech support was not that much use. My advice is if you are planning on using the built in intercom system then do a lot of research and plan on spending more time than expected on something that should be simple.

Perfect for churches!

By Seth

Quite perfect for church livestream situations, especially if you are already using blackmagic switchers... We use it with the ATEM 4k switcher, so being able to control all the settings from the switcher is a game changer. We also got the focus control knob, which works great as well! People worry about low light... we run it between +12 to +20 gain and there's no noticeable noise in that range, haven't really pushed it beyond that.

Asked by: Daniel
The answers here are a little dated and predate the Studio Converter (BH #BLSCN) which gives you breakouts for more connections than are present on the camera itself. One of those connections is a DE-9 that supports tally operation from either voltage based (TTL) or contact closure (open collector) systems. The current version of the manual covers that under the heading "DB-9[sic] Tally / Audio in connector pinout diagram."

is there B4 lens adapter mount?
Asked by: John
Yes we carry MFT to B4 lens adapters but keep in mind that this camera is not designed to support B4 lenses. This will present challenges when powering the lens (since it wont get power from the lens mount). It is also worth noting that B4 lenses are not designed to cover 4/3 sensors like the one in this camera. If you truly want to use B4 lenses with this camera there are ways to make it work just be aware that it will not be the same experience as using B4 lenses on a native camera.

Answers on this page (August 2021) say Cat 6a max length can be 70 meters (229 ft.). Answers on the Studio Converter page (July 2022) say Cat 6a max length is 50 meters (164 ft.) and 150 ft. Is 150 ft. the new recommended Cat 6a length? Anyone have a straight answer on this?
Asked by: Anthony
Due to the number of variables at play when considering cable length, it is hard to have an exact number. Regardless of the specification, manufacturers will advertise the maximum figure they were able to achieve. However, nobodies environment is the same, so these figures vary slightly from user to user. 50m is a safe length for a Cat 6a.
