Blackmagic Production Camera 4K is Now The Cheapest 4K Pro Camera on the Market

Think you can’t afford a 4K digital production camera? Think again. The highly anticipated Production Camera 4K
is now shipping — and here’s the good news. Blackmagic has dropped the initial $4,000 price more than $1,000 to make the camera more accessible to filmmakers at $2,995, Blackmagic Design announced today. The new pricing makes the camera the cheapest 4K pro camera on the market — at least for the moment.

The new price — the lowest of any 4K digital production camera — will be available for all customers, including pre-orders. It will be available at Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide. Blackmagic Production
Camera 4K is a super high resolution 4K digital production camera for
Ultra HD television production. It features a large Super 35 sensor,
professional global shutter and EF and ZE compatible lens mount.

support from the creative community for the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
and Production Camera 4K has been amazing,said Grant Petty, CEO,
Blackmagic Design in a statement. “As with all of our products, we work hard in
production to reduce costs so we can pass along the savings, even to our
first Blackmagic Production Camera 4K customers. The Blackmagic
Production Camera 4K is a perfect companion for ATEM Production 4K
switchers and we hope the new low price will help more customers to
expand their Ultra HD live production set ups with even more camera

how cam i get that camera from u any contact am in kenya coz tha prize has fitted my budjet


It's good how can get it ,is it on amazon


BMD 4K cams come with Resolve ($999) for free. S35 sensor with 12 stop DR, ProRes Or CinemaDNG RAW (future Free firmware upgrade), 6G SDI, Thunderbolt port and stuff.. accept a bunch of Cine lens at price of $2995 (u can sell Resolve for 500-700 easily if u don't need it.)..GH4 does this?


GH4 is rumor ware until it is actually for sale and still subject to changes …… much like the Black Magic 4K offering was yesterday…That being said it is generally understood that the PRO GH4 will actually have more "PRO" features than the "PRO" Black Magic 4k camera sans raw …Hence it will be adapted into use by "PROS" quicker……Black magic must think so as well hence the $1000 price reduction to help it compete the the GH4 ( pure speculation of course…and probably just a coincidence ….)


Prores, so only for mac users.


Uhm… not true? The gh4 is?

The thing they don't mention is how much hard drive space you'll be required to purchase to store a short or feature. Tens of terabytes. Hundreds or thousands of dollars. This as opposed to ARRI ProRes444 or REDCODE which use visually lossless codecs to enhance usability.
