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.

Feature Films

Cinematic production in 4K

When you’re shooting feature films for high resolution projection it is important to start out with the highest possible image quality. The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K model shoots at Ultra HD resolution so you get images that start with 4 times the pixels of 1080HD. You also get files with 12 stops of dynamic range so that the creative look and style of your film can be completed using DaVinci Resolve, which is included with the camera and is used on more feature films than any other product! The Super 35 sensor provides a beautiful cinematic depth of field so you can take advantage of the full frame of the world’s best cine lenses.

Television Commercials

The world’s best TV commercials are shot using digital film

The world’s leading advertising agencies and leading global brands demand the absolute perfection of a cinematic look for their products and services. The cinematic look of the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K will make products look better than anything in the world and create a fantastic perception in the eye of the customer. From high end car commercials to the latest fashion brands, now you can shoot with true digital film and capture textures and subtlety that, when color corrected with DaVinci Resolve will result in the customer’s emotional connection to the product!

Independent Films

The ultimate cameras for indie filmmakers!

Now Indie films don’t need to look like video just because you can’t afford to rent a traditional digital film camera. Everybody knows when you’re doing independent film you’re often working by yourself or with a minimal crew. The small size of the Blackmagic Cinema Cameras lets you take your entire production rig with you wherever you need to go. A small rig is vital when you are trying to shoot in public locations that you just cannot get the approval to shoot in. With a small rig you can sneak into locations and quickly steal the shot! Even though the camera is small, you can still use professional PL mount cine lenses for a true film quality shoot!


Shoot documentaries all day long!

If you’re a documentary filmmaker you need a camera that can go wherever the story takes you. You also want to be nimble, move quickly, be inconspicuous and of course never miss a shot! The Blackmagic Cinema Cameras are extremely rugged so will withstand the rigors of extremely tough locations. Because the Cinema Cameras are so light, that means you are free to carry additional lenses or other equipment to help you capture amazing footage at a moment’s notice!
