Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Plus Features

Dive into live broadcasting with the Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Plus, tailored to integrate flawlessly with the ATEM Mini. While retaining the top-tier broadcast camera standards, its focus on HDMI integration eliminates the pricier broadcast links, making it more cost-effective. The HDMI functionality is notably robust, facilitating video connection to the ATEM Mini. Simultaneously, it manages camera operations, tally, and even activates the remote recording trigger, all via the same HDMI connection. This streamlined approach ensures a swift and efficient setup for any task.

With its state-of-the-art features, this camera showcases Ultra HD resolutions up to 3840 x 2160p60, promising crystal-clear output for all your projects. It’s crafted with a lightweight, sturdy body, making it easy to use. Whether indoors or under the blazing sun, the 7-inch HDR LCD touchscreen, bolstered by a detachable sun hood, ensures you remain in control. On-the-go adjustments are made easy with side dials, controlling brightness, contrast, iris, and focus peaking. The F1-F3 buttons are right at your fingertips, ready to be tailored to your needs.

Sound quality is also paramount, and with dual built-in microphones, your broadcasts will be as crisp in sound as they are in vision. The embedded tally light system is a boon for talent and operators, ensuring seamless communication during live events.

For lens enthusiasts, the Micro Four Thirds mount is a game-changer. It supports many professional lenses, and remote lens control becomes a breeze with the optional Zoom Demand and Focus Demand lens controllers.

Bundled with the preloaded BlackMagic DaVinci Resolve, the Studio Camera 4K Plus lets you tweak brightness and colour straight from your computer, especially when synced with a compatible BlackMagic ATEM switcher.

With a locking DC power input, there’s no need to fret about power sources during those longer shoots. The Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Plus isn’t just a camera; it’s a broadcast revolution waiting to happen. Step in and harness its power!
