Live Multi Camera Production
The small size and completely open design of the Micro Studio Camera 4K makes it perfect for any live multi camera production! It’s virtually invisible and can be hidden just about anywhere on set, giving you the ability to have more camera angles than ever before so you can create a more interesting program. You can even hide them on stage to get incredible shots of live performances or, because they’re so small, safely fly them overhead during sporting events. It can also be used in the studio by rigging it with a professional broadcast lens and a Blackmagic Video Assist for monitoring.
The Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K is engineered with a super tough magnesium alloy core in a body that’s not much larger than the lens mount itself! You can use affordable, high performance MFT lenses or add a B4 adapter to work with traditional broadcast lenses. The Micro Studio Camera’s SDI program input accepts commands via the SDI connection from any ATEM the SDI connection from any ATEM switcher so you get remote control of camera settings, color balancing, black level, gamma, lens focus, iris and zoom control and much more. The expansion port includes PTZ and B4 lens control outputs so you can remote control remote heads and broadcast lenses all from a single SDI connection.
Flexible Expansion Port
The Micro Studio Camera is perfect for remote use because it includes an expansion port with multiple control connections such as a PTZ serial output connection so you can use motorized heads, B4 data link output for controlling broadcast lenses and you can even build customized camera control solutions using the S.Bus input. The expansion connector uses a common HD-15 connector so you can easily make your own cables or use the breakout cable that’s included. The expansion port also includes DC camera power in, LANC and reference input.
Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount
Active MFT photo lenses are designed to be small, light weight and produce super sharp images at a much higher resolution than traditional video lenses which makes them perfect for Ultra HD. They can be remotely controlled using the return SDI program feed from your ATEM switcher or from the expansion port on the camera. You can even add a lens mount adapter to use your existing collection of Broadcast B4 lenses or even feature film style PL lenses!
Ultra HD Image Sensor
The Micro Studio Camera 4K includes an incredible quality broadcast grade Ultra HD sensor for amazing clarity and the finest textures. Ultra HD is even more important when you’re working in HD because the extra sensor resolution completely eliminates any color loss from the sensor’s bayer pattern so you get full bandwidth RGB HD color and superior sub pixel anti-aliasing for amazing fine image detail. The Micro Studio Camera 4K has a 6G-SDI connection so it works up to 30 frames per second in Ultra HD and can also be switched to 3G-SDI or HD-SDI so it can operate up to 1080p60. If you’re working in HD or Ultra HD the Micro Studio Camera 4K can easily handle both.
Built In Talkback
The Micro Studio Camera 4K includes an iPhone style headphone socket with mic so you get full talkback support. You can also use standard noise canceling headsets, like those from Bose, Sennheiser and more to hear the technical director without distraction from the audience. Because the camera has an SDI connection to the switcher and an SDI connection from the switcher the talkback audio is embedded into channels 15 and 16 of the SDI signal and you get two way communication. If you’re setting up fixed cameras, talkback makes it easy to walk from camera to camera and plug in your headset to communicate with the rest of the crew to get the best angles and framing.
Add Popular Accessories
The expansion port combined with the flexible MFT lens mount and external mounting points gives you a massive amount of options for customizing your studio camera! You can use the camera remotely by itself, or you can add accessories to rig the camera so you can build your own custom studio camera! Add 3rd party lenses from companies like Olympus, Panasonic and others, or use an adapter to work with a wide range of B4 lenses or even feature film PL lenses! Two ¼” mounting points on the top and bottom of the camera so you can tripod mount the camera and add local monitor to use as a viewfinder. You can even add an external recorder to build a custom Ultra HD video camera.
