    Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4K PL

    Ultra compact 4K digital film camera with Super 35 sized sensor and global shutter, professional PL lens mount, 12 stops of dynamic range, RAW and ProRes SSD recorder and more

    The world's smallest super wide dynamic range PL mount 4K digital film camera features cinematic Super 35 sized sensor with global shutter. Includes 12 stops of dynamic range, built in 4K RAW and ProRes SSD recorder, touch screen with metadata entry, strong machined aluminum chassis and more. Includes DaVinci Resolve software for a complete solution for shooting, editing, colour correcting and finishing 4K digital film.

    Cinema Cameras feature wide dynamic range for shooting true digital film combined with precision PL, EF and MFT mount optics and high quality RAW and ProRes file recording. The built in touchscreen lets you monitor, change settings, display audio and exposure metering and enter metadata directly on the camera.

    Shoot Digital Film
    Only digital film cameras give you amazing cinematic images

    The reason the latest and most amazing television commercials, music videos and feature films look so good is because they've been shot with a digital film camera and then colour corrected using DaVinci Resolve. Video cameras, even high end broadcast video cameras, always just look like sharper home movies because they're limited to a regular video sensor. Blackmagic Cinema Cameras are true wide dynamic range digital film cameras designed to shoot with cinematic quality. Imagine adding the style and quality of digital film to your latest TV commercial, feature film, music video or even documentary, weddings or corporate videos.

    Super 35mm Size Sensor
    Get richer colours and a more creative depth of field

    If you need higher resolution, global shutter and a more creative depth of field then the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K models feature a large Super 35 size sensor and professional PL or EF lens mounts, so is the perfect choice. You get incredible Ultra HD images with 12 stops of dynamic range for feature film quality shooting. The minimal crop factor lets you shoot with super wide angle lenses so you get images that are big and beautiful, plus have the dynamic range to capture highlight and shadow details far beyond that of any traditional video camera.

    Use PL, EF or MFT Lenses
    No other camera gives you more choice in lenses

    You can choose between models with PL, EF or MFT lens mounts so you can use the world's best and most technically sophisticated lenses. The PL models allow you to use, or even rent, professional cinema lenses from companies such as Panavision™, ARRI™ or Zeiss™. You can even use vintage PL cinema lenses when you’re shooting period work where you want to recreate the look of that time by using the actual lens they used back in those days. The EF models let you use high resolution Canon™ photographic lenses for amazing quality, while the passive MFT model allows super small lenses and the flexibility to adapt to other lens mounts.

    Wide Dynamic Range
    Working with wide dynamic range is creatively addictive

    Video cameras clip highlights and shadows giving you images that look like video. Some cameras use multiple exposures or “HDR mode” to simulate wide dynamic range but that doesn't work well with motion video where you have movement. Blackmagic Cinema Cameras shoot each frame with wide dynamic range so you get brighter highlights without clipping and rich detail and shadows. The ultra wide dynamic range 2.5K sensor has so much range that you can even shoot indoors with correct exposure and still get full detail through windows outside. This is the secret that allows feature film imagery when colour grading with DaVinci Resolve.

    Super Small, Super Tough
    A true digital film camera, shrunk down to a handheld size

    The Blackmagic Cinema Cameras have been precision engineered from machined metal and miniaturized using the latest advanced electronics to deliver a rugged digital film camera that has the strength to be rigged even when supporting a heavy PL mount lens. Unlike most cameras that use plastic, the machined metal design of the Blackmagic Cinema Cameras can be hand held, rigged on cranes, used on Steadycam™ and more. The super small design still includes an SSD recorder capable of recording RAW, touchscreen LCD, internal active cooling for the cinematic sensor and standard SDI, audio and Thunderbolt™ connections.

    Direct Metadata Entry

    Touchscreen allows metadata entry direct on the camera

    The built in high resolution 5" LCD touchscreen can be used for entering metadata directly into the camera by simply typing on the soft keyboard, so it's as easy to use as any smartphone. Shot number can automatically increment, so you don't have to enter it for each shot. Entering metadata directly into the camera means every time you record the shot information is recorded into the media file so editing software such as DaVinci Resolve 11 or Final Cut Pro X can quickly identify and locate the shot you need when you are in post production saving editing time and eliminating manual logging.

    Super Fast SSD

    Move shots from camera to edit instantly

    Most professional digital film cameras use proprietary media only available from the manufacturer which increases the cost of using the camera. The Blackmagic Cinema Cameras eliminate this "usage tax" by using off the shelf computer solid state disks, or SSDs, so you can buy high performance storage media at much lower cost as well as getting higher speeds and capacity by taking advantage of the latest generation SSDs the moment they are available. SSDs can be mounted on your Mac or Windows machine using adapter cables or a Blackmagic MultiDock and because the speeds are so high you can edit directly off the SSD without time wasting file copying.

    Open Standard File Formats

    Edit and color correct without converting files

    Blackmagic Cinema Cameras record directly to files that are compatible with all major post applications. That means there's no time wasted converting files before you start editing and colour correction in post production. Blackmagic Cinema Cameras record ProRes so are very easy to use and even high resolution 4K ProRes files will play back from laptop computers. When recording RAW, files are still open format and use the open standard CinemaDNG RAW format so you get all the data off the sensor stored in a file that's compatible with many software applications as well as the included DaVinci Resolve editing and colour correction software.
