Introducing the world’s smallest digital film cameras with an incredibly strong design. Blackmagic 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! You can choose from models with two different types of cinematic image sensors and three different types of lens mounts such as PL, EF or MFT, depending on your needs.

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 color 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 colors 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.

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 color grading with DaVinci Resolve.

High Resolution

Get the resolution to allow reframing your shots

With the choice of two high resolution sensors, at 2.5K ultra wide dynamic range or 4K wide dynamic range, you get enough resolution to reframe shots, eliminate bayer loss for full resolution color and to shoot in native Ultra HD. With the latest incredibly large screen TV’s available to consumers the demand for Ultra HD content has never been greater. The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K model is the perfect choice for Ultra HD production and you can shoot native RAW to get every single bit of data direct from the sensor or you can shoot in ProRes for high quality video files that are as easy to use as HD files. That means you can shoot in Ultra HD with the same workflow as HD.
