Introducing Blackmagic Studio Camera, the world’s most advanced broadcast camera for live production! Inside its incredibly tough, lightweight magnesium alloy body you get a massive 10” viewfinder, 4 hour battery, talkback, tally indicators, phantom powered microphone connections and SDI connections that let you connect to your switcher with a single cable! The Blackmagic Studio Camera is available in HD and Ultra HD models, and is packed with all the advanced features you need for multi camera production and broadcast!
One of the problems with live production is that most cameras have not really been designed for live production, so they don’t have the features that we need such as a large bright viewfinder, talkback, tally, optical fibre plus almost all cameras are made from plastic.
Blackmagic Design have been thinking deeply about what features a camera designed specifically for live production should have and their solution is the new Blackmagic Studio Camera.
This new camera features a very large and bright 10” viewfinder, talkback, tally indicators, balanced XLR phantom powered microphone connections and built in SDI connections that let you connect to a live production switcher with a single cable. The viewfinder’s LCD is extremely bright and has a very wide viewing angle so it is perfect for use even in direct sunlight.
The Blackmagic Studio Camera features an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount that is compatible with an incredibly wide range of lenses and adapters. This means you can use high quality photo lenses for smaller setups or high end broadcast ENG lenses for large live broadcasts using an MFT to B4 lens mount adapter.
The built in fibre optic connection is bi-directional and depending on the model carries HD or Ultra HD video with embedded audio, talkback, tally and even camera remote control all down the single cable. Talkback uses general aviation headsets so they are really tough and low cost.
The design is cast from magnesium that’s super tough and includes a nice large sun shield for use outdoors. It’s an amazing design and having such a large viewfinder makes it amazing to use, and for live production its ideal - with full talk back to the director and knowing when you’re on air with the tally light.

Designed with the latest miniaturization technology and features, the Blackmagic Studio Camera is the world’s most advanced camera that's specifically designed for multiple camera live production.
Ultra HD - Over 4 times the size of 1080HD
Ultra HD is the broadcast standard of the future and 4K content is already being delivered to consumers today through web video channels like YouTube and Vimeo. New Ultra HD displays deliver a picture that has 4 times the resolution of 1080 HD, that’s a massive 3840 x 2160 pixels! From the newsroom to live sporting and theatrical events, there’s no faster way to capture the beauty and realism of Ultra HD 4K than to record a live switched program with Blackmagic Studio Cameras.
Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount
The Blackmagic Studio Camera features an active Micro Four Thirds lens mount that is compatible with an incredibly wide range of lenses and adapters. You can use your existing photo lenses for smaller setups or fixed camera use, or then bolt on incredible broadcast ENG lenses for large live broadcasts. Third party lens adapters let you connect to all kinds of lens mounts for any type of lens you choose, and you can even add feature film PL mount lenses, allowing you to customize your camera to suit any size production.
Large 10” Full HD Viewfinder
The Blackmagic Studio Camera includes the world’s largest viewfinder built in! The massive 10” high resolution screen has a super wide viewing angle and the large viewing area lets you see amazing detail so you can frame, focus, change iris settings, and make subtle adjustments, even when you’re live on air.
Bi-Directional Optical Fibre
The Blackmagic Studio Camera is the world’s first to include a built in fibre optic connection, allowing you to use a single thin tether cable to connect cameras to your live production switchers. The optical fibre connection is bi-directional and carries HD or Ultra HD video with embedded audio, talkback, tally and even camera remote control. And because it uses standard, low cost fibre optic cable, you can connect cameras over massive distances almost anywhere, even at the largest outdoor venues.
Built In Talkback
The Blackmagic Studio Camera features built in talkback so the camera operator and crew can communicate at all times during production. You get general aviation headset connections so you can choose from a wide range of aviation headsets, so you get better quality talkback headsets with better noise cancelling and a much lower cost. Setup is easy because talkback is embedded in the optical or SDI video connection to the camera, so you don’t have to run separate talkback cables.
Illuminated Tally - Know when you're on Air
The Blackmagic Studio camera supports the tally SDI standard used on the ATEM range of live production switchers. This means the tally from the switcher is broadcast to all cameras from all video outputs of the ATEM switcher and it’s sent to the Blackmagic Studio Camera via the program video connection. Tally lights illuminate automatically when your camera is live, and will stay illuminated during multiple camera 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 Grade Connections
Featuring broadcast quality connections you get bi-directional optical fibre and SDI connections for connecting to live production switchers or recorders. Also included is a professional aviation headsets jack, stereo XLR microphone inputs, and more. All connections are logically organized on the left and right sides of the camera, making them accessible and easy to use. Because the Blackmagic Studio Camera uses standard connectors, you don’t need expensive custom cables
Integrated Control Panel
Quickly and easily access the most important controls using the built in row of buttons below the viewfinder. You can adjust iris and focus control with the touch of a button, activate talkback, or even see return video. Dedicated buttons let you switch between film and video modes, display safe area markers, and turn on menu controls to change camera settings. The integrated push button control panel gives you complete camera control at the touch of a button.
Remote Camera Control
Now you can remote control your camera! The Blackmagic Studio Camera can be remotely controlled from your ATEM live production switcher via the SDI connections for more professional production. The Blackmagic Studio camera also has a full DaVinci Resolve primary colour corrector so you can colour balance your cameras as well as add creativity to your live production. All settings in the camera can be controlled including colour, full lens control, camera settings and more, all remotely from the live production switcher. That leaves you free to focus on the shot.
4 Hour Battery Life
The Blackmagic Studio Camera might be small, but it includes a massive battery that will power the camera for over 4 hours! This means you can run a simple optical fibre tether to remote locations and the camera is fully powered and self-contained with full talkback, tally and return program feed. That’s perfect for live sports and other events where the cameras are long distances away from the switcher. When it’s time to connect power, an industry standard 12V 4 pin XLR power connector is built in for better strength and compatibility.
External or Built in Microphones
For productions that require live location sound, you can use the built in stereo microphone or plug in professional external microphones, even with phantom power, into the camera’s XLR connectors! This gives you fantastic quality live audio from your cameras and is super critical when covering live sports! Camera audio is automatically embedded with the video signal for connection to the ATEM live production switcher’s built in audio mixer.
View Program Video
The Blackmagic Studio camera lets you 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.
Huge Range of Accessories
Blackmagic Studio Camera includes everything you need for live production all in a single self-contained solution. However when you want to add large lenses, or smooth professional tripods then you can select from a massive range of third party accessories. With industry standard connectors, interchangeable lenses, and multiple mounting points you can customize the camera for any type of production using a virtually limitless selection of third party accessories.
