Revolutionary Studio Camera Design
Say goodbye to the days of clunky, oversized cameras that restrict your movements and creativity. The Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera boasts all the benefits of a large studio camera in a tiny, rugged body that can be placed virtually anywhere. Its super tough magnesium alloy core is packed into a compact body that is not much larger than the lens mount itself. This means that you can now take your camera to places you never thought possible, capturing footage that truly sets you apart from the crowd.
Exceptional Low Light Performance
But let's talk about ISO - the measuring unit of a camera's sensitivity to light. With a higher ISO, you can easily shoot in natural light or even during night time. And that's exactly what the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera offers - a gain range of -12dB (100 ISO) up to +36dB (25,600 ISO). Say goodbye to compromising on lighting and hello to capturing the true essence of the moment. But here's the cherry on top - the primary native ISO of 400 is perfect for studio lighting, ensuring crystal clear shots every time. And when you're out and about, the secondary high base ISO of 3200 will come to your rescue in dimly lit environments. Take full control of your camera's gain by adjusting it from the convenient HDMI menu or even remotely from a switcher using the SDI/HDMI remote camera control.
Get Cinematic Images in Live Production!
What sets this camera apart from the competition is the built-in DaVinci Resolve primary color corrector. Say goodbye to simple broadcast cameras and hello to stunningly vibrant, professional-grade images that will leave your audience breathless. And the best part? The color corrector can be effortlessly controlled from your switcher, putting the power of flawless image control right at your fingertips. With an impressive dynamic range of 13 stops, the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera ensures that your footage boasts an unparalleled level of depth and dimension. From the deepest blacks to the brightest whites, every detail will be captured with stunning clarity. This means that color correction becomes a breeze, allowing you to effortlessly enhance and refine your visuals to perfection.
Affordable Photographic Lenses!
Designed with affordability and versatility in mind, this innovative camera is compatible with a wide range of MFT lenses from popular brands like Olympus, Panasonic, and Sigma. Say goodbye to those sky-high prices of specialized lenses, because with the Micro Studio Camera, you can achieve stunning image quality using affordable photographic lenses that are specifically designed for high-resolution photography.
Built-in Tally for On Air Status
Say goodbye to the stressful guessing game of which camera is on air. The Micro Studio Camera 4K features a unique tally light that illuminates red for on air, green for preview, and orange for ISO recording. Now, your talent can present with total confidence, knowing at a glance which camera is in use. This revolutionary feature is designed to make your on-air presentation smoother, easier, and more professional. But that's not all - the camera also offers full support for the SDI and HDMI tally protocol from top-of-the-line switchers like the ATEM Television Studio, ATEM Constellation, and ATEM Mini. This means that your director can effortlessly switch between cameras and the tally information will be sent back to the camera, lighting up the tally light whenever it's on air. So, you can focus on bringing your creative vision to life without worrying about complex cabling.
Powerful Broadcast Connections
Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K has lots of connections for connecting to broadcast equipment. It has 12G-SDI that supports video, tally and camera return which makes setup much faster! It includes a full size HDMI connector for local video monitoring so you can attach a monitor such as a Blackmagic Video Assist to change settings through the menu overlay or check the position of a remote camera. You also get a USB-C expansion port for recording to external disks or controlling the camera via zoom and focus demands. You can even connect a USB-C to Ethernet adapter to control the camera over a network via REST APIs! Plus there’s a 3.5mm port for connecting a microphone.
Two Ways to Connect
With its HDMI support, this camera pairs perfectly with HDMI switchers like the ATEM Mini. Gone are the days of wrestling with multiple cables, as a single HDMI cable is all you need to unleash a world of possibilities. Video, tally, control, and even record trigger are effortlessly transmitted through this single connection, providing you with a streamlined and professional workflow. But wait, there's more! The Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera doesn't stop there when it comes to connectivity. Equipped with 12G-SDI, this camera is ready to connect with SDI based switchers such as the ATEM Constellation. The possibilities are endless with not one, but two 12G-SDI connections. One for camera video and the other for program return, ensuring a seamless and uninterrupted flow of data.
Includes Built-in Microphones
What sets this camera apart from the rest? Well, the built-in microphones are strategically placed for optimal stereo separation, giving you top-notch audio quality like never before. And for those times when you need even more professional sound, simply connect a video microphone to the 3.5mm audio input and voila – you have a powerful and directional audio source with wind protection.
USB-C for External Disks and Ethernet Control
With the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K, you can record your adventures directly to external USB disks in jaw-dropping 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files. This means that you can simply move the disk to your computer and start editing without wasting precious time on file transfers. It's a game-changer, and you'll wonder how you ever managed without it. Thanks to the USB-C to Ethernet adapter, you can easily control your camera over a network using our user-friendly REST APIs. Imagine the convenience of adjusting settings, framing shots, and capturing that perfect moment from the comfort of your smartphone or tablet. It's like having your own personal camera assistant right at your fingertips.
Incredible Blackmagic RAW Quality
Blackmagic RAW is a revolutionary new format designed to capture and preserve the quality of the sensor data from your camera. Some file formats such as H.264 are highly compressed, so add noise and artifacts, causing sensor detail to be lost forever. Blackmagic RAW eliminates this problem so you get stunning images with incredible detail and rich color throughout the whole post production pipeline. Blackmagic RAW also saves camera settings as metadata so you can change ISO, white balance and exposure later in DaVinci Resolve. Plus the files are small and fast, so editing responsiveness is incredible. Only Blackmagic RAW gives you the highest quality, smallest files and fastest performance!
Powered by Blackmagic OS
Say hello to on-screen focus and exposure tools, 3D LUTs, HDR, metadata entry, timecode, and Blackmagic RAW settings. With these tools, you'll be able to take your filmmaking to the next level, creating stunning visuals that will leave your audience in awe.
