Blackmagic Cinema 4k | Blu Strategic Services - Rental

Introducing the world’s smallest digital film cameras with an incredibly strong design, the Blackmagic Cinema 4k. 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.
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.

Work with wide dynamic range RAW images for unlimited creative grading options.
Recording RAW images gives you more detail in the highlights and shadows than traditional video cameras because you have access to all of the data captured by the cameras’ imaging sensor. And with DaVinci Resolve’s amazing non-destructive RAW controls, you can access all of that data to recover highlights, adjust white balance, exposure and more! Working in RAW also gives you the advantage of being able to read your RAW files at higher quality when new updates of software with improved de-bayer algorithms are released in the future! Working in RAW is similar to how older film stock can be scanned on newer scanners for improved image quality!

Metadata entry allows post production media management.
Entering metadata on set means you can spend more time cutting and less time logging footage when editing! You can enter slate information, like scene, shot and take numbers, using the built in 5” LCD touchscreen. The slate numbers increment automatically so you can keep shooting. Camera metadata is compatible with leading editing software and is fully searchable so you can spend more time editing, and less time sorting through footage

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.

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.
