Blackmagic Studio Camera

The world’s smallest broadcast camera with the world’s largest viewfinder!


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, talkback, remote camera control, tally indicators, phantom powered microphone connections, and SDI or user installable optical fiber 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!

Designed for Live Production

Perfect for outdoor and indoor live production

Now you can produce multiple camera live production in any location! The super bright large viewfinder and compact size of the Blackmagic Studio Camera makes it perfect for talk shows, sitcoms and broadcast news in the studio, or even live concerts and sporting events. The incredible lightweight compact design, foldable sunshade and interchangeable lenses mean you can pack an entire multi camera live production rig into a single road case! Because it’s so easy to setup and use, the Blackmagic Studio Camera is also perfect for corporate AV departments, houses of worship, schools and more!

HD and 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!

Built In Talkback

Use professional aviation headsets

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 canceling 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!

ATEM Talkback Converter 4K

Stay in touch with the entire crew over long distances!

The ATEM Talkback Converter 4K gives you talkback for up to 8 cameras so the entire crew can stay in touch and take direction during live productions. Featuring advanced 12G-SDI connections the talkback converter gives you full bi-directional video, talkback and tally signals over the SDI program return to your Blackmagic Studio Cameras. That means you don’t need any extra cables to add talkback and tally to your production! The ATEM Talkback Converter 4K also has SFP cages for adding optional SMPTE optical fiber modules when you need to place your cameras far apart at larger venues. That means you can place your cameras up to 28 miles away from the switcher without any loss of signal quality!

Broadcast Grade Connections

Professional connections for 24/7 reliability

Featuring broadcast quality connections you get optional bi-directional optical fiber 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!

Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield

Build customized camera solutions!

The Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield is an Arduino expansion board or “shield” that makes it possible for anyone to develop their own custom control solutions for Blackmagic Design cameras. Arduino is a popular low cost open source micro controller platform used by developers and enthusiasts. The Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield attaches to any Arduino and then supports inserting camera control commands into the 3G-SDI link to the camera. This means all Blackmagic Studio Cameras and URSA Mini can now be controlled remotely via Arduino code and you can design and build your own custom CCU or broadcast automation solutions!

External or Built in Microphones

Professional audio live from the camera!

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.
