  • Dynamic Range
    Captures a super wide dynamic range of 13 stops into 12-bit DNG files for a true "filmic" look, offering more flexibility in your shooting locations. Also it preserves detail in both shadows and highlights, and even handles indoor shots while keeping the details of any images captured through windows, and allows for keeping all sensor data and enhancing the creative decisions during DaVinci Resolve color grading.

    PL Lens Mount
    The PL lens mount lets you use professional cinema lenses from manufacturers such as Panavision, ARRI, Zeiss, and Cooke. This gives you access to some of the highest-quality modern and vintage optics available.

    Capacitive Touchscreen Display
    The five-inch touchscreen allows for setting up a shot, as well as playback from the SSD using the transport control buttons below the screen. You can enter shot data and update the camera's settings using the capacitive touchscreen display. Also control the camera's operating functions with a simple touch of the screen, just double tap to zoom the image for fast and accurate focus. Additionally a data strip provides you valuable information including record status, shutter angle, ISO, battery level, record time and more.

    Metadata Entry
    The Blackmagic also features built-in metadata entry so that files include information compatible with popular editing software. This dramatically speeds up the whole post production process, and can save a production valuable time and money. Entering metadata is easy - simply tap the capacitive LCD touchscreen to display the slate where information can be entered including shot number, search tags, scene number, Timecode, and more. You can set shot number and other data to increment automatically, allowing for quicker setups while shooting. And the Metadata is compatible with leading editing software and is fully searchable, bypassing the time
