The Blackmagic Studio Camera HD is an advanced, compact and lightweight broadcast camera designed for live production. You get a massive 10-inch viewfinder with detachable sunshade, MFT lens mount, talkback, tally indicators, phantom powered microphone connections, 3G-SDI and user upgradeable optical fiber connections that let you connect to your switcher with a single cable! It's incredibly tough, lightweight magnesium alloy body is packed with all the built in features you need for multi camera production and broadcast.
The camera offers 1080i and 1080p resolutions at frame rates of 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 50, 59.94, and 60. It outputs 10-bit 4:2:2 video via its 3G-SDI or optical fiber outputs. The camera can also provide a standard 4-pin XLR power input for external power sources. The internal battery provides the added benefit of being able to hot swap external batteries without having to power off or interrupt recording.
The camera control buttons have been placed right below the viewfinder, letting you easily make adjustments without taking your eyes off your subject. The camera can also be controlled via ATEM switchers with a future update. The update will be available as a free download for both the camera and the ATEM switchers, and will send camera control commands down the SDI program feed to the camera to control focus, iris, gain, and more straight from any ATEM production switcher
