Large Super 35 Sensor / EF Compatible Lens Mount
The large Super 35 sensor on the Blackmagic Production Camera allows you to use lenses you already own with ease, achieving familiar framing and behavior. The global shutter allows perfect panning, and minimal crop factor allows beautiful wide angle shots with wide angle lenses. The sensor also provides freedom to reframe and zoom into shots with no resolution loss in HD, and still gives you clean, incredibly smooth images when scaling down from 4K to HD. The EF Compatible Lens Mount allows you to choose optics to take full advantage of this sensor with minimal cropping. Use some of the world's most popular lenses from Canon, Zeiss and more, with full electronic control! Not being locked into a specific lens gives you the freedom to work with professional cinema lenses using rails, follow focus and other professional accessories.
Blackmagic Production Camera 4K has a built in super fast SSD recorder that easily captures 4K footage in ProRes 422 (HQ) and compressed CinemaDNG files. This 4K camera is designed specifically to be a part of your postproduction workflow. Recording to a removable SSD means that you can simply connect the drive to your computer when done shooting and edit or color correct shots straight from the disk! SSD Disks can either be formatted in HFS+ or exFAT for Mac and Windows compatibility. Recording in 4K Resolution using ProRes™ gives you 36 minutes of footage on a 240GB SSD, or 72 minutes on a 480GB solid state drive. Open file formats save users time and effort converting files before post production can begin, as footage is recorded directly to files 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. Use the built in Thunderbolt computer connection with incredibly fast 10 Gb/s transfer speeds so you can capture the camera's output. You can also use the Thunderbolt video output with the included Blackmagic UltraScope software and get technically accurate waveform monitoring, even when using a laptop on set.
Blackmagic Production Camera 4K features an easy to use 5" touchscreen to access menus and change settings such as recording format, shutter angle and more. Double tapping the screen zooms into the image for fast, accurate focus. A single tap on the screen displays the metadata entry page, where you can enter information such as shot number, search tags, scene number, timecode and more. You can even set data to increment automatically, if desired. Metadata saves directly into your files so you can easily search for key terms with common editing software.
