Elegant, sophisticated and jam packed with the latest digital cinema technology, Blackmagic Cinema Camera gives your work that timeless feature film look. Blackmagic Cinema Camera features an amazing 2.5K image sensor with a wide 13 stops of dynamic range for a true digital film camera. You get a built-in SSD recorder, popular open standard uncompressed RAW and compressed file formats, compatibility with quality EF lenses, LCD touchscreen monitoring plus metadata entry, all packed into an exciting hand held design.
Use Standard Connectors
Say goodbye to annoying custom cables you can never find when on a location shoot because Blackmagic Cinema Camera uses only standard connections. You get jack mic/line audio inputs for recording the highest quality uncompressed audio, as well as 3 Gb/s SDI out for on set monitoring or for sending to live production switchers. Also included is 12V to 30V DC input for power and battery charging, 3.5mm headphone socket, LANC remote control and high speed Thunderbolt port for computer capture.
Capacitive Touchscreen Display
The 5″ touchscreen lets you see your shot, as well as play back from the SSD using the transport control buttons below the screen. Enter shot data and update the camera's settings using the capacitive touchscreen display, just like a smartphone! Double tap to zoom the image for fast and accurate focus. To keep you updated, the data strip displays information including record status, shutter angle, ISO, battery level, record time and more.
Built-in SSD Recorder
Blackmagic Cinema Camera includes a built-in SSD recorder that uses low cost 2.5" SSDs. You're not tied to proprietary media and SSDs of different sizes are widely available. You can play back directly from the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, mount the disk to any computer or use Blackmagic Design's HyperDeck Studio deck. Alternative camera media cannot match the performance of SSDs and require slow file copying to use. With Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD video formats you can record for more than 5 hours on a single 480GB SSD.
Enter Metadata Easily
The large capacitive touchscreen display makes it incredibly easy to log metadata directly into the camera. When you tap the display with a finger, a data entry window called the "slate" appears. This lets you enter shot information just like typing on a smartphone. This data is then stored in the files so can be accessed by NLE software when editing content later. Metadata is compatible with popular software such as Final Cut Pro X and DaVinci Resolve.
Open File Formats
Blackmagic Cinema Camera uses standard file formats, so you don’t need to wait years for your video software to support the media! Recording native 2.5K resolution uses the open CinemaDNG format, so you get full 12-bit RAW recording quality using the built-in SSD recorder, and the benefit of industry wide compatibility. For even greater compatibility you can also choose 1080HD recording into ProRes and DNxHD compressed video formats.
Fast Metadata Entry
Logging file metadata directly into the camera dramatically speeds up the post production process. With the Blackmagic Cinema Camera 'slate' 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! Metadata is compatible with leading editing software and is fully searchable so when you're editing your project you can avoid the time consuming task of searching for specific shots.

EF lens mount for interchangeable optics, high resolution 4K Super 35 size sensor, global shutter, visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes 422 (HQ) file format.
Record Times for 4K Resolution using ProRes
• 240Gb - 36 Mins
• 480Gb - 72 Mins
The Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4K features a Super 35mm sized image sensor with a global shutter and a Canon EF compatible lens mount. The camera is capable of recording Ultra HD 4K in the visually lossless, compressed CinemaDNG RAW or Apple ProRes 422 (HQ). The built-in recorder utilizes removable 2.5" SSDs, which enable the high data rates required by RAW and 880Mbps ProRes. The camera's ability to expose for 12 stops of dynamic range lends the image a truly film-like look, and the Super 35mm (21.12 x 11.88mm) sized sensor approximates the standard of traditional film.
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K retains the beautifully crafted design and machined aluminum chassis of the original Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Much like its predecessor, this camera features a 5" touchscreen LCD display with 800 x 480 resolution, which enables monitoring and playback as well as an efficient means for navigating the menu and entering metadata.
PLEASE NOTE: The camera cannot format SSD drives. SSD drives have to be formatted (via an external 2.5" compatible dock) as HFS+ on a Mac, or by using Macdrive (not included) on a Windows PC.
Super 35 Sensor with Global Shutter
With a large Super 35 size sensor you get familiar framing and behavior from the lenses you already own. The sensor features a global shutter so you get perfect panning, without rolling shutter artifacts.
Canon EF Compatible Lens Mount
With the EF compatible lens mount you can choose high quality optics that are designed to take advantage of the large Super 35 size sensor with minimal cropping. The active mount enables full electronic control with compatible EF mount lenses.
Ultra HD 4K and 1080HD
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K records Ultra HD 4K and 1080HD in visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes 422 (HQ) files. At a massive 3840 x 2160 pixels, Ultra HD 4K is 4 times the size of 1080HD. The camera also features a single 6G-SDI output which supports Ultra HD live production.
Built-in SSD Recorder
The camera's built-in recorder utilizes removable 2.5" SSDs. You can playback directly from the camera, mount the disk to any computer, or use Blackmagic Design's HyperDeck Studio deck. When finished shooting, simply connect the SSD to a computer and edit or color grade shots straight from the disc.
12 Stops of Dynamic Range
With 12 stops of dynamic range you get amazing looking images beyond those of regular video cameras or even many high-end broadcast cameras. All this dynamic range is captured into ProRes or CinemaDNG files at 4K resolution, so images retain a beautiful film look. By capturing more detail from the sensor you have greater creative flexibility in post production. You can really push the shadows or highlights in either direction and preserve fine details.
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K uses standard connections, so you never need to source custom cables. It includes a 6G-SDI connection for Ultra HD resolution or down converted HD output over a single SDI cable. The 1/4" jack mic/line inputs enable high quality uncompressed audio recordings. Other connections include a 12 to 30 volt DC input, a 3.5mm headphone input socket and LANC remote control.
Touchscreen LCD Display
The integrated 5" LCD display features 800 x 480 resolution and touchscreen technology. Use the capacitive touchscreen to access menus and 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, simplifying file management in post production.
Flexible Power Options
The inclusion of an internal rechargeable battery makes the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K a truly portable high resolution camera. You get up to 90 minutes of recording time from the battery and the remaining power information is shown in the data strip at the bottom of the picture. The wide input voltage of 12-30V means you can connect external professional battery packs that will let you operate the camera longer while recharging the internal battery at the same time.
The LANC protocol is a standard method for the remote control of many professional cameras. The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K features a standard 2.5mm jack for connecting to a remote that lets you trigger the camera to start and stop recording, plus it supports electronic lens control of the focus and iris, all using an industry standard protocol and jack connection.
The FOCUS button turns the peaking display on and off, and the IRIS button adjusts iris settings when used with a compatible EF mount lens. Other features include an integrated mono microphone, a mono speaker, three 1/4"-20 UNC threaded mounting points on the top of the camera and one 1/4"-20 UNC threaded tripod mount with locator pin on the bottom.
