World’s most portable 4Kdigital film camera!
Shoot Ultra HD TV or 4K feature films with the new Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. You get a large Super 35 size sensor with professional global shutter combined with precision EF mount optics, high quality visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and Apple ProRes 422 (HQ)™ file recording for a complete self contained solution. The built in touchscreen lets you monitor, change settings and enter metadata directly on the camera!

Stunning Beauty of 4K - Utilize the power of 4K resolution in your work
The latest high end televisions and video projectors support Ultra HD which is four times the resolution of 1080 HD. The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K creates visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes 422 (HQ) files that are perfect for editing and grading with the software tools you already own.
Now you can shoot the most amazing high resolution music videos, episodic television productions, television commercials, sport, documentaries, interviews and feature films. The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K features a single 6G-SDI output for incredible Ultra HD live production.

Premium Quality - Compact solid metal design
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K is precision engineered for quality in an incredibly small size. You get a beautifully crafted design featuring a machined aluminum chassis, 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. With built in uncompressed audio recording you can record professional audio straight to the ProRes files and totally eliminate separate audio syncing during post production.

Large Super 35 Sensor
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 and with minimal crop factor you also get beautiful wide angle shots from your wide angle lenses. If you're working in HD you'll love the freedom to reframe and zoom into shots without any resolution loss, and when down scaling from 4K to HD you get incredibly smooth and clean images.

EF Compatible Lens Mount Supports
the world's best lensesWith 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. Use the world's most amazing optics from leading lens crafters like Canon, Zeiss and more, with full electronic control!The EF compatible lens mount means you’re not locked into a specific lens, so you have the freedom to work with professional cinema lenses using rails, follow focus and other professional accessories!

Super Fast SSD Recorder - Capture 4K ProRes™ directlyto a removable SSD!
With a built in SSD recorder, Blackmagic Production Camera 4K easily captures 4K in ProRes 422 (HQ) and compressed CinemaDNG files. You get a 4K camera designed from the ground up to be part of your post production workflow! Capturing to a removable SSD means that once you’ve finished shooting you can simply connect the SSD to your computer and edit or color correct your shots straight from the disk! Disks can be formatted in either HFS+ or exFAT for Mac and Windows compatibility.

Open File Formats - Standard files for your NLE
Unlike traditional cameras that record obscure file formats that take time to convert before you can start post production, the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K records directly to files that are compatible with your editing software. The wide dynamic range of the Super 35 size sensor can be mapped into the quantizing range of the file, so you can color grade shots with greater detail in highlights and shadows. If you're working fast, simply select 'Video' and shoot in regular REC709 color space.

Beautifully Crafted Design - Machined from solid aluminum for strength and beauty
Blackmagic Production Camera 4K has been designed with portability and durability in mind. With standard connections and an internal battery inside a beautiful machined aluminum design, you can be confident that the Blackmagic ProductionCamera 4K will easily handle the rigors of location work! A high resolution LCD display shows settings such as shutter speed, color temperature, aperture and timecode in an easy to read status strip.

Easy to Use Touchscreen - Enter metadata on the camera
Use the capacitive touchscreen to access menus to 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. Managing your files in post production is now much simpler!

Dynamic Range - Higher image quality means even more grading power
With 12 stops of dynamic range you get amazing looking images beyond those of regular video cameras or even the highest end broadcast cameras. All this dynamic range is captured into ProRes or CinemaDNG files at 4K resolution, so images retain abeautiful film look. By capturing more detail from the sensor you can make creative decisions during DaVinci Resolve color grading! You can really push the shadows or highlights in either direction and preserve fine details in the image!

Standard Connections - No need to buy expensivecustom cables!
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 built in Thunderbolt connection lets you plug into a laptop computer and use the included UltraScope software for real time waveform monitoring. There are 1/4” jack mic/line inputs for recording the highest quality uncompressed audio, plus a 12V to 30V DC input, a 3.5mm headphone input socket and LANC remote control!

The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K works with the widest range of professional camera accessories so that you can attach equipment and mount the camera to suit any situation. As the camera includes standard video and audio connections, plus features 1/4” thread mounting points virtually any accessory can be used.

Blackmagic Cinema Camera 4K - Elegant portable solution for professional shooting
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K is the world’s most portable Ultra HD 4K camera! The beautiful machined aluminum design is both lightweight and incredibly strong, so you can now shoot at 4K resolution in virtually any location with a camera you can hold in your hands! The design features a cinematic Super 35 size sensor, EF lens mount, built in SSD recorder, 5" touchscreen LCD, plus incredible 6G-SDI output.

EF Compatible Lens Mount - Choose from the world's best lens crafters
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K features an EF compatible lens mount, so you can use the highest quality optics from leading lens crafters like Canon™, Zeiss™ and more. With so many EF compatible lenses you have the freedomto switch between prime and zoom lenses depending upon your shot. The camera has a large Super 35 size sensor and global shutter. You can even use super wide angle EF lenses to get the most amazing panoramic images with virtually no crop!

Elegant Design - A design that feels great to use
Every aspect of the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K has been meticulously designed so that you get beautiful high resolution images with a camera that feels great to shoot with! By using standard connections, universally compatible file formats and commonly available storage media, nothing is restrictive and the camera fits perfectly into your post production workflow! Attaching additional equipment such as an electronic view finder, microphone or camera support system is easy using the multiple 1/4” thread mounts on the top and bottom of the camera.

Capacitive Touchscreen - Responsive touchscreen lets you type in metadata
The high resolution touchscreen LCD is an integral part of the camera design. In addition to focusing and monitoring your shots the capacitive display is used for metadata entry and to adjust camera settings. This design eliminates complicated camera controls and menu systems. The time saving benefits of entering metadata directly into the camera files saves hours of separate logging and means you get a camera that’s been designed with your post production workflow in mind.

Standard Connections - Everything you need
Blackmagic Production Camera 4K uses standard connections that are conveniently located on one side of the camera. All connections are protected by rubber hoods to keep them clean from dust and dirt when not in use. With standard connections you never need to buy custom cables and if you forget to take a cable with you it’s easy to source a replacement. The camera includes a Thunderbolt connection so you can connect to a computer and use the included UltraScope software for on set scopes!

Built in SSD Recording - Handles high resolution video
Many cameras are designed to use proprietary storage media and file formats, which can both increase your storage costs and slow down the post production process. The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K features a built in SSD recorder for removable disks. These standard 2.5” solid state drives are fast, readily available from computer stores and constantly reducing in cost. Because the camera’s video and audio capture is synchronized within the ProRes 422 (HQ) file you can take files easily into post production.

Flexible Power Options - Wide 12V to 30V DC input plus a built in battery!
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 whilst recharging the internal battery at the same time.

    Photolease is an independent finance company who have specialised in leasing equipment to the imaging industry for over twenty five years.


    1. Banking facilities left available for special projects and unforeseen expenses.
    2. Small initial outlay usually amounting to just one months rental.
    3. Payment can be spread over a period of one to four years dependent upon value and type of equipment.
    4. A single payment at the end of the lease guarantees retention of the asset for the remainder of its working life.
    5. If you want to sell the equipment after the lease has ended you will receive the sale proceeds.
    6. Rentals are fully tax deductible.
    7. Cash flow is protected and the asset earns revenue in payment of the lease.
    8. No need to be VAT registered.



    What happens at the end of the lease?

    We will extend the agreement indefinitely on payment of a single further monthly rental. After that you can keep the equipment and will never have to pay any more.

    Isn't leasing just for companies who can't afford the cash?
    No. Companies who lease do so because they know that there are better uses for their spare funds.

    Is leasing only relevant for large acquisitions?
    No. Transactions of all sizes are completed using lease agreements. You can lease equipment worth as little as £1000.

    Do I have to insure the equipment?
    Yes. It is your responsibility to keep the equipment insured for all risks for the term of the agreement.

    What happens if the equipment becomes faulty?
    You have the protection of the manufacturers and/or suppliers warranty. Responsibility for repairs out of warranty are yours.

    What about VAT?
    Rentals attract VAT. This can be reclaimed if you are VAT registered. Please check your VAT status, or consult your accountant

    What can be included in the agreement?
    Leasing enables the whole solution to be financed. This can include hardware, software, installation, training and warranties

    Can the equipment be upgraded?
    Yes. The equipment can be upgraded during the course of the agreement. Speak to us for further details.

    Is it possible to settle the agreement early?
    Yes. However we always recommend you speak to your accountant to make sure it does not create an adverse tax position.

    Is there a penalty for settling early?
    No. If you clear the account before it has run it’s full term then there is a reduction in the full amount payable.

    Can I pay a deposit to lower my monthly outlay?
    Yes. However you would need to contact us to find the correct figures based on your deposit amount.

    *includes setup/documentation fee
Is your BMCC 4K gonna be on the same price tag as the one announced by Blackmagic US few days ago ($2995)? Any news regarding shipping?
We have reduced our pricing to reflect the US announcement. With regard to availability, we have many cameras on order and a queue of many patient customers who have placed pre-orders. These orders will be fulfilled in strict rotation as we start to receive product from BMD. Although they have announced that the product is shipping, it's only in small qty at the moment so it's impossible to say how long it will take to clear the backlog. I truly wish I could give you a more definitive answer....

This reply dated 12th Feb 14
What do the following mean?
1 CinemaDNG
2 Cinema Camera
1 See:-
2 'Cinema Camera' is the product family name given by Blackmagic to its range of cameras.
What are the fps rates for slo mo work?
You can't overcrank the camera, the only frame rates available are as per the specs on the 'Specification' tab on the product page.
I have a field monitor and an EVF which both only have HDMI connectivity. With the BMD 4k camera not having HDMI out, will it be possible to use these accessories via a Thunderbolt->HDMI converter?
The product is not shipping yet and many details relating to spec are unclear at the moment due to imprecise information from the manufacturer. It is likely that the solution to your query would be to use an SDI to HDMI convertor on the cameras SDI output but until we know how that output scales as the camera changes resolutions, we can't give a definitive answer.

The Thunderbolt port is designed for connecting up to a Mac and then using the Blackmagic software to capture uncompressed HD (like a capture card).

I haven't been able to find any information whatsoever on data rates if this camera is used in "RAW" mode - do you have any figures, please?Following on from that, do you also know how many minutes of recording time you're likely to get with "RAW" on a single SSD?
Blackmagic have not yet released that information.
What do I need, apart from lenses, to get this camera up and running?
As a minimum, you're going to need a microphone and a memory card in addition to a lens. But then you might also want to consider rig hardware, ext viewfinder, additional battery systems etc. There's a plethora of available accessories - see the 'Accessories' tab on the product page to get an idea of what's available. For more detailed personalised advice please contact a member of our Sales Team -
