Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Plus Overview
Add a powerful studio camera to your 4K broadcast when using an ATEM Mini with the Blackmagic Design Studio Camera 4K Plus. This updated compact and lightweight broadcast camera is designed for live production and provides a variety of options to record and broadcast your video, and it’s designed to be used with the ATEM Mini switcher. This camera is similar to the Studio Camera 4K Pro model but it has pared down inputs, so you can control all the camera outputs using a separately available ATEM Mini video switcher. The main features added to the Studio 4K Plus model include a lighter carbon fiber body, up to 25,600 ISO, 13 stops of dynamic range, a bigger tally light, HDMI output, two USB Type-C ports for recording and control, built-in dual microphones, a 7″ HDR LCD, and a redesigned sun hood.
The camera offers UHD resolutions at frame rates up to 3840 x 2160p60. It is light for frequent travel, setup, and breakdown, yet durable for use in the field. It has a bright 7″ capacitive touchscreen display that allows you to control all the settings right from the screen, and it features a 1920 x 1200 resolution, and it has a detachable sun hood that was redesigned to fold down over the display for storage and protection. There are brightness, contrast, iris, and focus peaking control knobs on the sides of the display, and you can also program the F1-3 buttons on the side. The camera also features DaVinci Resolve built-in, so you can control the camera’s color and brightness settings right from a computer when it’s paired with a compatible ATEM switcher.
Its Micro Four Thirds lens mount allows you to utilize a wide range of professional lenses, and you can also control the lens remotely with the optional Zoom Demand and Focus Demand lens controllers. To power the camera, it has a standard locking DC power input for external power sources.
