Design

The innovative design that's won all major global design awards!

The Blackmagic Cinema Cameras features an innovative design that’s won every global design award! The Blackmagic Cinema Cameras have become the solution to shooting in constrained space, dangerous and intimate locations where a traditional digital film camera just won’t allow. Machined from a solid block of aluminum for incredible strength, you get a truly professional camera that’s up to serious feature film use. You still get extremely advanced features that not even much larger cameras offer, such as built in RAW and ProRes recording in 4K, histogram exposure meter, direct metadata entry via touchscreen, 6G-SDI and much more!

Choose Your Lens Mount

Choose the camera model with the lens mount you prefer!

With two different sensor types and 3 different types of lens mount, you get a customized camera that’s perfectly suited to the work you do. The Blackmagic Cinema Camera body was designed to allow for manufacturing with small MFT type lens mounts, larger EF Canon type lens mounts as well as professional cinema PL mounts. With an all metal design that’s super strong, the camera allows even a very large and heavy PL mount lens to be attached and supported by the camera. The PL lens mount also allows shimming by the user, so you can put the camera and lens on a collimator and optically match the lens to the camera body perfectly.

Touchscreen Display

The built in LCD monitor is
more than a viewfinder!

The heart of the design is the built in 5 inch touchscreen that’s as easy to use as typing on your smartphone! You can frame shots, view histogram and audio meters on the heads up display as well as change camera settings and enter metadata all on the built in screen. You can also control other camera features via the touchscreen such as double tapping the screen to zoom into the image for easy focus, and swiping up and down controls for the “heads up display” that shows histogram, time remaining and audio level meters so you can get perfect exposure and audio levels! The status strip displays transport status, shutter, aperture, ISO, battery and more!

Loads of Connections

Connections for monitoring, audio, Thunderbolt and more!

With all connections conveniently located on one side under a protective rubber hood, you get resistance to dirt, sand and grime getting into the connections. You get a standard BNC connection for location monitoring and you can select to include overlays so your crew can monitor camera settings. Also included are ¼” audio inputs for mic/line level recording, a 3.5mm headphone jack, LANC control port and a Thunderbolt port for technical monitoring using a local computer and the included UltraScope software for Mac and Windows. You can also use Thunderbolt for live camera feeds into DaVinci Resolve for live grading!

Built In SSD Recorder

Records directly to standard
2.5” solid state disks!

The built in SSD recorder works with standard 2.5” solid state disks that are affordable, high performance and available from most computer stores! Both models support CinemaDNG RAW and ProRes, which lets you record over 5 hours of HD on a single 480GB drive! The Cinema Camera 2.5K also supports recording HD video to DNxHD files! When finished, simply connect the SSD to your Mac or PC and instantly begin editing or color grading without copying or converting the files!

Record Time for 4K Resolution using RAW,
at 24 frames per second.

DC Power

Extend your shoot with support
for external batteries!

The built in rechargeable battery can record for up to 90 minutes and makes the Blackmagic Cinema Cameras truly portable! You also get a standard 12 - 30V power connector so that you can add external professional battery packs such as V-Lock or any other DC power pack. That means you’ll be able to shoot longer and recharge the internal battery at the same time!

Custom Rigs

Attach accessories and build
the perfect rig for your shoot!

The Blackmagic Cinema Cameras work with a wide variety of professional camera accessories. That means you can build a custom rig for any shooting situation! The top of the camera has three ¼” thread mounting points for easily adding ambient and directional microphones, shoe mounts, EVFs, cages and more! The thread mount located on the bottom of the camera lets you secure the camera to tripods, attach handles, stabilizing systems, rails and even quad-copter drones!
