You can also work with up to 64 channels of audio, stereoscopic 3D, high frame rates and more.

Blackmagic Camera 4.7 Update



Released today Blackmagic Camera 4.7 Update for Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K and Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. Blackmagic Micro Studio 4K now has new 720p format support at 50, 59.94 and 60 frames per second, and in addition, we’ve been able to improve sensor performance and increase the exposure sensitivity. This means you can now get 2 additional stops of sensitivity when shooting in more challenging conditions. Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K now has the ability to output RAW video via SDI, providing the most flexible option for downstream image processing. The combination of new format support, improved sensitivity and RAW output make the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K the perfect broadcast quality miniature camera.

We also added support for PTZ communication via VISCA through the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K expansion port and also added support for PTZ commands in the Blackmagic SDI Control Protocol. In addition, new commands have been added to change the frame rate, toggle auto focus and to record via S.Bus. The camera now passes through remote record commands as SDI and HDMI record triggers to external recorders such as Blackmagic Video Assist and our HyperDeck family. Now you also get improved remote-control capability, so you can move the camera, adjust settings and start or stop recording from any location, even if it’s mounted in tight, hard to reach spaces! Blackmagic Camera 4.7 Update also includes features for the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. In addition to record start and stop triggers on HDMI output, there is also now HDMI timecode output support. As for Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K, the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera also has the ability to change frame rate settings, codec settings and toggle auto focus via S.Bus.
