Camera 4K EF
Features Super 35 size 4K sensor, EF mount, 12 stops of Dynamic range, SSD recorder and display.
The reason the latest and most amazing television commercials, music videos and feature films look so good is because they’ve been shot with a digital film camera and then color corrected using DaVinci Resolve. Video cameras, even high end broadcast video cameras, always just look like sharper home movies because they’re limited to a regular video sensor. Blackmagic Cinema Cameras are true wide dynamic range digital film cameras designed to shoot with cinematic quality. Imagine adding the style and quality of digital film to your latest TV commercial, feature film, music video or even documentary, weddings or corporate videos!
If you need higher resolution, global shutter and a more creative depth of field then the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K models feature a large Super 35 size sensor and professional PL or EF lens mounts, so is the perfect choice. You get incredible Ultra HD images with 12 stops of dynamic range for feature film quality shooting. The minimal crop factor lets you shoot with super wide angle lenses so you get images that are big and beautiful, plus have the dynamic range to capture highlight and shadow details far beyond that of any traditional video camera.
Video cameras clip highlights and shadows giving you images that look like video. Some cameras use multiple exposures or “HDR mode” to simulate wide dynamic range but that doesn’t work well with motion video where you have movement. Blackmagic Cinema Cameras shoot each frame with wide dynamic range so you get brighter highlights without clipping and rich detail and shadows. The ultra wide dynamic range 2.5K sensor has so much range that you can even shoot indoors with correct exposure and still get full detail through windows outside! This is the secret that allows feature film imagery when color grading with DaVinci Resolve.
The Blackmagic Cinema Cameras have been precision engineered from machined metal and miniaturized using the latest advanced electronics to deliver a rugged digital film camera that has the strength to be rigged even when supporting a heavy PL mount lens. Unlike most cameras that use plastic, the machined metal design of the Blackmagic Cinema Cameras can be hand held, rigged on cranes, used on Steadycam™ and more. The super small design still includes an SSD recorder capable of recording RAW, touchscreen LCD, internal active cooling for the cinematic sensor and standard SDI, audio and Thunderbolt™ connections.
