Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Plus G2
The Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Plus G2 has the same
features as large studio cameras, miniaturized into a single compact and
portable design. Designed for professional SDI switchers, you get the features
of the Studio Camera Plus, as well as 12G‑SDI, XLR audio, bright HDR LCD, 5-pin
XLR talkback, 10G Ethernet IP link, and HD live streaming. With digital film
camera dynamic range and color science, this camera can handle extremely
difficult lighting conditions while producing cinematic looking images. The sensor
features an ISO up to 25600 so you can create amazing images even in dimly lit
venues. It even works under moonlight. Advanced features include tally, camera
control, built in color corrector, Blackmagic RAW recording to USB disks and
much 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-inch 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-inch 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 by 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.
Frame Shots with Large 7-Inch Viewfinder
The large 7-inch 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 sun shade can be folded to protect the screen for transport plus it's compatible with sun shades from the Blackmagic Studio Viewfinder.
