What’s Changed? The Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Plus is a full redesign of Blackmagic’s Studio camera platform. Using their prior experience with add-ons and modifications to their Blackmagic Design Studio Cameras, they have integrated studio oriented features like control knobs, easily readable tally lighting, and a slide plate mounting system with 15mm LWS rod mounts. You’ll also have the ability to record BRAW to external hard drives and camera control via Blackmagic’s ATEM Mini line of switchers.
UHD 4K Capable w/ HDMI Control. The Studio Camera 4K Plus couples its compact size with a 3840 × 2160 Ultra HD image sensor. This “plus” version only offers a single HDMI output, but the camera accomplishes a lot with a little. This HDMI port can be connected to a Blackmagic ATEM Mini switcher like the Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini Extreme ISO HDMI Switcher for control over camera functions as well as lens functions on compatible motorized lenses.
Integrated 7-Inch Touchscreen Monitor. The large built-in monitor’s 1920 × 1200 resolution makes it easy to view your shots while you’re shooting and provides overlays for status and record parameters, histogram, focus peaking indicators, levels, frame guides.
Tactile Controls. The touchscreen does much of the heavy lifting for camera control, but knobs to the right of the monitor allow for more tactile and precise control of brightness, contrast, and focus peaking while three function buttons on the left can be assigned to zebra, false color, focus peaking on/off, LUTs, and more.
External SSD Recording. This camera features dual USB Type C ports that allow users to record Blackmagic RAW directly to external SSDs for quick transport of files to a computer for editing. Please note that external USB Type C SSDs are the only type of media accepted by this camera.
