Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro
The Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro is an upgraded Studio Camera model featuring an active EF lens mount, a larger 6K sensor that enhances color accuracy and detail handling, ND filters, and built-in live streaming via Ethernet or mobile data. The Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro shares the same compact design as the rest of the studio camera family, with a lightweight carbon fiber reinforced polycarbonate body, a large integrated 7" HDR viewfinder, and powerful broadcast connections.
The Blackmagic Studio Cameras are designed to provide the same features as large studio cameras but in a single compact and portable design, making it suitable for use in a wide range of settings. It is equipped with digital film camera dynamic range and color science that allows it to handle difficult lighting conditions and produce cinematic-looking images. The camera's sensor has an ISO up to 25,600, enabling users to capture stunning images even in dimly lit environments.
Advanced features of the Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro include talkback, tally, camera control, built-in color corrector, Blackmagic RAW recording to USB drives, live streaming, and more. In addition, the Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro models come with built-in live streaming via Ethernet or mobile data, which enables users to place cameras remotely almost anywhere in the world.
While the Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro is designed for live production, it's not limited to use with an ATEM switcher, as it records Blackmagic RAW directly to USB drives. Its large 7" viewfinder makes it ideal for various types of work, including chat shows, television production, broadcast news, sports, education, conference presentations, and weddings. The camera's large bright display, side handles, touch screen, and physical controls make it easy to track shots and comfortable to use for extended periods.
With the combination of amazing sensors and Blackmagic generation 5 color science, customers can expect to get the same imaging technology used in digital film cameras. The camera's color corrector can be controlled from the switcher, and it offers 13 stops of dynamic range, providing darker blacks and brighter whites, which are perfect for color correction. The Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro has a resolution of 6144 x 3456, making it ideal for both HD and Ultra HD production.
The Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro is compatible with a wide range of affordable photographic lenses thanks to the popular EF lens mount. Customers can use optional focus and zoom demands to adjust the lens from the tripod handles, eliminating the need to reach around manually, just like a large studio camera, giving users the same feel as an expensive B4 broadcast lens.
The Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro models feature SDI connections with talkback, allowing the switcher operator to communicate with cameras during live events. This feature eliminates the issue of all cameras having the same shot at the same time, as the director can talk to the camera operators to guide shot selection. The talkback connector is built into the side of the camera and supports standard 5-pin XLR broadcast headsets.
Designed specifially for broadcast workflows, the Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro is great for professional use. The Studio Camera 6K Pro comes with a range of connections, including 12G-SDI, 10GBASE-T Ethernet, talkback, and balanced XLR audio inputs, which enable customers to connect to various equipment.
The 10G Ethernet connection allows for all video, tally, talkback, and camera power to be transmitted over a single cable, reducing setup time and cost. This system is similar to a SMPTE fiber workflow but uses standard Category 6A copper Ethernet cable.
The Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro models also feature built-in live streaming capabilities. This allows customers to place cameras in remote locations and generate H.264 HD live streams that can be sent over the internet back to the studio. The cameras can be connected to the internet using the built-in 10G Ethernet connection or by connecting a 4G or 5G phone to the USB-C port.
The Blackmagic Studio Camera 6K Pro also comes with remote controllable ND filters that enable users to quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. These filters are designed to match the colorimetry and color science of the camera and can filter both optical and IR wavelengths evenly, eliminating IR contamination of the images. The ND filters can be controlled electronically using the function buttons on the back of the camera or remotely, allowing the camera operator to focus on getting the perfect shot.
