Blackmagic Design announced that its new 4K Production Camera is now shipping for a price of $2,995. The camera captures a high-resolution 4K image for Ultra HD television production. It features a large Super 35 sensor, professional global shutter as well as EF and ZE compatible lens mount.
It also includes a built in SSD recorder, rechargeable battery and a large 5-inch LCD touchscreen. In addition to focusing and monitoring shots, the touchscreen also allows users to enter metadata and change camera settings all on a single interface. Customers also get a full copy of DaVinci Resolve for color grading and finishing for Mac OS X and Windows computers.
“The support from the creative community for the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and Production Camera 4K has been amazing,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “As with all of our products, we work hard in production to reduce costs so we can pass along the savings, even to our first Blackmagic Production Camera 4K customers.”
