The Blackmagic Studio Camera is the world’s most advanced broadcast camera for live production! You get a massive 10 inch viewfinder, MFT lens mount, talkback, tally indicators, phantom powered microphone connections, 3G-SDI and user upgradeable optical fiber connections that let you connect to your switcher with a single cable! Its incredibly tough, lightweight magnesium alloy body is packed with all the built in features you need for multi camera production and broadcast.

Compact and Lightweight Design

The Blackmagic Studio Camera features a compact magnesium allow chassis that is both lightweight and strong, making it well suited for use in the studio or in the field. The camera body features a rubberized coating that gives extra grip when changing lenses. It's lightweight and compact size makes it easy to transport and be used in tight spaces.

Control Panel

For easy operation, all of the most important control buttons are placed right below the LCD screen, letting you make adjustments without having to scroll through complicated menus. You can instantly turn on overlays, adjust focus and iris settings, activate talkback, and even select return program video.

Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount

The Blackmagic Studio Camera uses an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount. Choose from available MFT lenses, or use third party adapters to mount anything from common DSLR lenses to PL-mount cinema lenses, or even B4 ENG broadcast lenses.

Optional Bi-Directional Optical Fiber Module

With the addition of an optional and user-upgradeable optical fiber module, you can use standard, low cost fiber optic cable to connect the camera to a switcher over large distances, even at the largest outdoor venues. The optical fiber connection is bi-directional and carries HD or Ultra HD video with embedded audio, talkback, tally, and even camera remote control.

Built-In Talkback

Built-in talking lets the camera operator and crew communicate at all times during production. The Blackmagic Studio Camera is compatible with general aviation headset connections, letting users choose from a wide range of available headsets. And because talkback is embedded in the optical or SDI video connection to the camera, you don't have to run separate talkback cables.

View Program Video

View program video from your live production switcher at the press of a button. Simply press the camera's PGM button and the viewfinder will display the program video feed from your switcher, turning the viewfinder into a large SDI monitor. You can even use the program SDI input to view playback from a local HyperDeck recorder when using the Blackmagic Studio Camera for recording.

Integrated 10" LCD Screen

The large 10" screen has a resolution of 1920 x 1200, letting you easily view your shots while operating the camera. The large detachable sunshade protects the screen from glare and creates your own private viewing space. With a wide viewing angle, you'll have a clear view of your image even when panning to extreme angles.

Illuminated Tally

The Blackmagic Studio Camera supports the tally SDI standard used on the ATEM range of live production switchers. This means that tally from the switcher is broadcast to all cameras from all video outputs of the ATEM switcher and it's sent to the camera via the program video connection. Tally lights illuminate automatically when your camera is live, and will stay illuminated during multiple cameras transitions. With a light on the front for talent, and a light above the viewfinder for the operator, cast and crew can easily see which cameras are on air.

Broadcast Connections

Connections are grouped on both sides of the camera with video in and out (3G-SDI and optical fiber) and power on side, and XLR audio inputs, headphones, and LANC on the other. This lets you quickly setup and change cables as needed, while keeping them out of the way and protected during your production.

Multiple Mounting Points

A variety of mounting points lets you customize your rig to suit your product needs. The Blackmagic Studio Camera includes two 3/8"-16 mounting points on the bottom, and ten 1/4"-20 mounting points on the side and the top.

4-Pin XLR Power Input

There is a standard 4-pin XLR power connector for external 12 to 24V power supplies.
