Blackmagic Production Camera 4K
World’s most portable 4K digital film camera!

Shoot Ultra HD TV or 4K feature films with the new Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. You get a large Super 35 size sensor with professional global shutter combined with precision EF mount optics, high quality visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and Apple ProRes 422 (HQ)™ file recording for a complete self contained solution. The built in touchscreen lets you monitor, change settings and enter metadata directly on the camera!

Stunning Beauty of 4K
Utilize the power of 4K resolution in your work
The latest high end televisions and video projectors support Ultra HD which is four times the resolution of 1080 HD. The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K creates visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes 422 (HQ) files that are perfect for editing and grading with the software tools you already own. Now you can shoot the most amazing high resolution music videos, episodic television productions, television commercials, sport, documentaries, interviews and feature films. The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K features a single 6G-SDI output for incredible Ultra HD live production.

Premium Quality
Compact solid metal design
The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K is precision engineered for quality in an incredibly small size. You get a beautifully crafted design featuring a machined aluminum chassis, EF lens mount for interchangeable optics, high resolution 4K Super 35 size sensor, global shutter, visually lossless compressed CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes 422 (HQ) file format. With built in uncompressed audio recording you can record professional audio straight to the ProRes files and totally eliminate separate audio syncing during post production.

Large Super 35 Sensor
With a large Super 35 size sensor you get familiar framing and behavior from the lenses you already own! The sensor features a global shutter so you get perfect panning and with minimal crop factor you also get beautiful wide angle shots from your wide angle lenses. If you're working in HD you'll love the freedom to reframe and zoom into shots without any resolution loss, and when down scaling from 4K to HD you get incredibly smooth and clean images.

EF Compatible Lens Mount
Supports the world's best lenses
With the EF compatible lens mount you can choose high quality optics that are designed to take advantage of the large Super 35 size sensor with minimal cropping. Use the world's most amazing optics from leading lens crafters like Canon, Zeiss and more, with full electronic control! The EF compatible lens mount means you’re not locked into a specific lens, so you have the freedom to work with professional cinema lenses using rails, follow focus and other professional accessories!


Super Fast SSD Recorder
Capture 4K ProRes™ directly to a removable SSD!
With a built in SSD recorder, Blackmagic Production Camera 4K easily captures 4K in ProRes 422 (HQ) and compressed CinemaDNG files. You get a 4K camera designed from the ground up to be part of your post production workflow! Capturing to a removable SSD means that once you’ve finished shooting you can simply connect the SSD to your computer and edit or color correct your shots straight from the disk! Disks can be formatted in either HFS+ or exFAT for Mac and Windows compatibility.

Recording Times for 4K Resolution using ProRes™:
240GB: 36 Mins
480GB: 72 Mins

Open File Formats
Standard files for your NLE
Unlike traditional cameras that record obscure file formats that take time to convert before you can start post production, the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K records directly to files that are 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.

Beautifully Crafted Design
Machined from solid aluminum for strength and beauty
Blackmagic Production Camera 4K has been designed with portability and durability in mind. With standard connections and an internal battery inside a beautiful machined aluminum design, you can be confident that the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K will easily handle the rigors of location work! A high resolution LCD display shows settings such as shutter speed, color temperature, aperture and timecode in an easy to read status strip.

Easy to Use Touchscreen
Enter metadata on the camera
Use the capacitive touchscreen to access menus to change settings such as recording format, shutter angle and more! Double tap the screen to zoom into the image for fast and accurate focus. Tap once on the screen to display the metadata entry page where you can enter information such as shot number, search tags, scene number, timecode and more. You can even set shot number and other data to increment automatically! This metadata saves directly into your files and is compatible with popular editing software. Managing your files in post production is now much simpler!

Dynamic Range
Higher image quality means even more grading power

With 12 stops of dynamic range you get amazing looking images beyond those of regular video cameras or even the highest end broadcast cameras. All this dynamic range is captured into ProRes or CinemaDNG files at 4K resolution, so images retain a beautiful film look. By capturing more detail from the sensor you can make creative decisions during DaVinci Resolve color grading! You can really push the shadows or highlights in either direction and preserve fine details in the image!

The post production standard

DaVinci color correctors are the standard in post production since 1984. There are thousands of colorists worldwide who understand the performance, quality and workflow of DaVinci and love it as their trusted partner in creativity. DaVinci is the name behind more feature films, television commercials, documentaries, episodic television production and music videos than any other grading system. Now avalible for both Mac and Linux, the true quality and power of DaVinci is now affordable for everyone!

Clients demand DaVinci!

When you’re in a room full of demanding clients with conflicting ideas, colorists know that only DaVinci has the quality, real time performance, creative features, and powerful control panels to make euphoric clients who love to keep coming back. That’s why clients always ask for DaVinci by name.

Realtime by design

Computer based solutions are always limited to the computer you’re running on. DaVinci Resolve when running on Linux smashes this limitation, because it’s based on a cluster of Linux computers with high performance GPU cards, so all processing is always real time. This means DaVinci Resolve Linux has all the power of a super computer for the real time performance you need when you're in a room full of clients. Add dozens of primaries, secondaries, power windows, multi point tracking, blurs, and more, then just hit play. It always works!

Scale as you need!

Start with a single computer on Mac OS X for lower cost, then upgrade to Linux for extra power for high resolutions such as 2K or 4K, stereoscopic 3D feature films, or real time grading of raw RED files. It’s all possible with DaVinci because you can just add extra Linux computers and GPU cards via high speed InfiniBand connections. Only DaVinci Resolve scales up as your needs increase.

Engineered to perfection!

DaVinci processing quality is so revolutionary it won an Emmy™ award for contributions to the television industry! All image processing is handled in the deepest 32 bit floating point accuracy, so even if you wind down one layer to almost black, you can still wind the following layer back up with no loss of quality. All effects, power windows, tracking, primaries and secondaries all operate at the highest bit depths, even when processing in real time. That’s the engineering perfection clients demand.

Optical quality processing

DaVinci supports flat gamma, linear or log images with equal ease and quality. If you need to resize, reposition or zoom any shot, then DaVinci Resolve does it all in real time at full RGB optical quality. Pan, tilt, zoom and rotate while grading mixed formats, mixed pixel aspect ratios and mixed resolutions all on the same timeline. Only DaVinci uses YRGB processing to independently adjust luminance using a simple control for greater creativity, such as slightly burnt out or de-saturated highlights.

Nodes for unlimited creativity!

DaVinci uses node based image processing where each node is a separate color correction, power window or effect. Nodes are similar to layers, but much more powerful because you can change the connections between the nodes. Join nodes sequentially, or in parallel to combine grades, effects, mixers, keyers, custom curves in any order for mind blowing creative styles, that are totally unhindered by technical limitations. You can reconnect nodes in any order for all types of exciting and cutting edge creative looks.

Mind blowing creative options

Every node has full YRGB processing with primary and secondary controls; lift, gamma, gain, hue, saturation, luminance, calibrated printer lights, matte defocus, image defocus, 3D object tracking, YSFX, Custom Curves™, soft clip, highlight, circle, rectangle and polygon Power Windows™, plus the new Power Curve™ windows with full bezier control and independent inside and outside softness. Only DaVinci has such a mind blowing range of creative options to explore, and of course it’s all real time!

World's greatest 3D tracker!

DaVinci Resolve includes the world’s most powerful 3D object tracker that’s perfect for locking Power Windows™ to on screen objects. No more time wasting key frame generation! Just drop a Power Window™ into a shot, such as someone’s face, turn on 3D tracking and press play. 3D object tracking automatically follows the objects movement, position and size, even if it’s tracking someone’s face and they turn their head sideways! 3D object tracking uses 1 to 99 tracking points for real time perfect tracking lock.

Innovative stereoscopic 3D!

With the latest feature films in full stereoscopic 3D, DaVinci Resolve on Linux easily handles these new demanding workflows. With stereoscopic hardware you can grade and view two eyes at the same time, all in real time with no rendering and no proxies. Each eye can have its own or a common grade and you can change the position of each eye to change the stereoscopic effect. It's easy to group shots and grade multiple clips at the same time just by selecting the clips in a group or use a quad play head to review up to four clips at one time.

Let your emotions flow!

Colorists know that color correction is all about reaching into the image and letting your emotions and creativity flow to create the perfect shot. It’s just like holding the images in your hands and molding them into absolute perfection. That's why colorists always describe images in emotional ways, such as warm, cold, soft and hard. That's the colorist culture that DaVinci understands. Colorists just cannot be truly creative when limited to clicking on fiddly small screen controls or by using pens and tablets.

Integrated control surface and software

The DaVinci Resolve control surface and software have been specifically designed by colorists to work together in total harmony. Controls have been placed near your natural hand positions keeping the on screen software interface clear of clutter for better visual feedback of your work. Track balls have been placed together so lift, gamma and gain can all be adjusted at the same time. Each control has a separate button or knob so you can instinctively reach out and touch every part of your image.

Heads up grading

Buttons can be set to any custom color, and with a huge 38 independent soft knobs with automatic color labels, you’ll never have to page through multiple menus for common adjustments. Full deck control buttons with jog and shuttle are built in. All grade memories and gallery still frames can be recalled with a simple press of a button. Only the DaVinci Resolve control surface lets you keep your head up and grading at full speed!

Grade raw RED files in realtime!

DaVinci Resolve allows full unlimited grading of raw RED files in real time so you’re not limited by time consuming rendering before grading. DaVinci Resolve reads and browses files direct from your disk array, SAN or files captured from the video input. Choose from a huge range of file formats such as native DPX, CIN, QuickTime, DNxHD and native RED R3D in 4K with full de-bayer all in real time. You can even work with TIFF, JPEG, TGA and BMP and up to 16 channels of audio!

Get your job done fast!

DaVinci Resolve is designed to handle all types of source material common in busy post production facilities. Get the job done fast as you can automatically link color correction metadata to the master grade. Load an EDL for an instant conform of your timeline and you can grade multiple versions of the edit all at the same time. DaVinci Resolve lets you view the offline against the timeline to quickly see and fix any problems. EDLs are handled in A or C mode and if you don’t have an EDL, then the DaVinci Automatic Scene Detector can create one for you fast!

Gallery stills and grades library

DaVinci Resolve features the famous Gallery where grades and stills can be loaded and recalled instantly. That’s perfect for keeping your grades consistent all the way through the job and keeping all of your grading presets in one easily accessible place. You can even pull Gallery grades and stills from other sessions! Gallery grades and stills can be saved at any time with the simple click of a button, and you can even build a custom effects library of your own!
