Blackmagic Production 4KAmidst several delays, many of us have been eagerly anticipating the release of the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K, but the time has finally come, and rest assured — your patience was well worth it. The Production Camera 4K is now shipping, but not at the initial $4,000 price. In hopes that it would become accessible to more filmmakers, Blackmagic is now offering the camera at $2,995. Continue on to find out more about Blackmagic’s announcement.

Here’s a bit from the press release:

Blackmagic Design today announced the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K is now shipping and with a new low price of US$2,995. This new low price will be available for all customers, including existing pre-orders. Blackmagic Production Camera 4K is available now from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide for only US$2,995.

“The support from the creative community for the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and Production Camera 4K has been amazing,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “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 angles!”

As we saw a couple of weeks ago, the footage the Blackmagic 4K is capable of capturing is absolutely breathtaking, so if you haven’t pre-ordered, but are itching to get your hands on one, they’re now available at all Blackmagic resellers worldwide — though, you might have to give them some time to catch up with the announcement.

  • Perhaps this is the wrong forum, but my interests are along the lines of live Multi-cam sports productions, it would seem BMD is leaning this way with the 4k Production Camera and the new 4k switcher, I’m just wondering what kind of CCU options are available and what TV zoom lenses would be most compatible for these cameras, and if indeed this is one of the intended uses. Could it be that this camera is the most “universal” use camera at this price point?
    Certainly my hope, but I would like to get some definitive answers.

  • For those of you wondering… I just spoke with a rep from B&H and they are only now starting to fulfill the orders placed April 2013 in very limited quantities, and no other estimates beyond that. So bottom line, unless you jumped on the wagon this time last year, don’t hold your breath on seeing one any time in the near future. But place your pre-orders at will..

  • I visited various web pages however the audio qualiity
    for audio songs present at this web site is actually wonderful.

  • I would buy that in a few heartbeats.

  • But will it have a global shutter? What is the dynamic range?

  • I still have hopes that Blackmagic can bring slow-motion via firmware to this camera, even 48fps at 1080p in burst mode will be great! Anybody knows something about that? Cheers

  • Indeed. Please can we all chip in and buy gene his own domain so he can stop washing out the comments sections of every thread with 4k ranting?

    These comments are not productive in any way. Please follow comment guidelines.

    This comment thread is about a 4K camera. Odd how some think it is not. It is obvious this price change came about from the GH4K being so low priced. There have been several commenters saying such, not just me.

  • C’mon Gene, can’t speak for the other guys, but I was just messing with ya.. Here’s a 4K hug
